As every busy collegiette knows, setting the time aside to enjoy a healthy breakfast in the morning is no easy task. Whether you're on the run to an 8 a.m. lecture, preparing to start the morning at your internship or headed to work for an early shift at your part-time job, it's critical that you fuel your body with a nutritious meal in the morning. If you're in a rut about what to choose for your morning meal, we're here to help with a few budget-friendly and tasty ideas that can be prepared the night before or thrown together quickly in the morning so you won't be left scrambling.
Calcium is a necessary mineral, especially for us collegiettes, and an easy way to start your morning off with this essential element of your diet is with a serving of yogurt. For additional protein, which will help to curb your cravings throughout the day by keeping you fuller longer, choose a 6-oz cup of Greek yogurt, which often contains 15 to 20 grams of protein.
To ensure that you're working towards your recommended five-a-day servings of fruit and veggies, add a piece of fresh fruit to your breakfast. Whether it's a piece of whole fruit (such as a banana) that you consume in addition to your yogurt or sliced fruit (such as berries) that you add to the yogurt, you'll be adding vitamins and flavor to the rest of your meal. Throw in a handful of nuts like walnuts or almonds for additional healthy fats. This easy breakfast is one that is easy to grab while running out the door in the morning. You can also prepare it in advance and keep it refrigerated in a Tupperware container.
Food bloggers and savvy ladies everywhere have been raving about overnight oats for years. Oatmeal is not only delicious, but it's also a top choice for its nutritional content and its price, which fits well in a college budget. If you have some free time the night before, follow this easy recipe for a tasty treat.
When you wake up, the oatmeal's consistency will be a lot like regular cooked oatmeal (but slightly thicker) and ready to eat, as all of the liquids have been absorbed in the oats during the night.
A nutritious fruit smoothie is a great on-the-go option for when you have only a few minutes to get ready for the day because it's easy to prepare and refrigerate the night before. Here's a yummy banana berry smoothie recipe from AllRecipes.com that will energize you for the day ahead and will only take about five minutes to make.
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. For additional protein, you can add silken tofu, protein powder or liquid egg whites. The recipe makes two servings, so feel free to share the second serving with your roommate or save it for the next morning.
Just like the fruit and yogurt pair combines protein from the yogurt and other great nutrients from the fruit, this easy breakfast idea does the same while also adding whole grains and healthy carbohydrates from the bread. Simply toast a piece or two of whole wheat bread, and then add your favorite peanut butter spread. If you're allergic to peanut butter, you can substitute sunflower butter or almond butter for a similar taste and texture. Finally, slice a banana and add the pieces to your toast as desired. You could also add a sprinkle of cinnamon or drizzle a teaspoon of honey over it, too. It only takes a few minutes to prepare, and it's so satisfying!
As the title of this recipe from Eugenie Kitchen implies, you won't need to spend too much money on ingredients. The main ingredients in this recipe are nutritious as well, and the recipe is flourless, low in calories and gluten-free. With prep time and cooking, it will only set you back about 10 minutes.
This healthy muffin recipe from Women's Health serves the dual purpose of filling you up in the morning as well as fighting PMS symptoms, due to the nutrients in the bananas, the calcium and vitamin D in the yogurt and the magnesium in the walnuts. Since you can prepare a batch of these muffins the night before, you'll be able to easily grab one in the morning on your way out the door, and they'll even last you all week for you and your roommates--the recipe makes 18 muffins.
As we said earlier, a protein-packed breakfast is a sensible option to curb your hunger and help you stay focused. This recipe from The Food Network will take you only about 15 minutes to prepare--and we promise it's worth waking up those few minutes earlier to make.
With these quick and nutritious options to choose from, you'll never skip the most important meal of the day. Since these recipes are easy and fun to prepare and work well on a college budget, breakfast may just end up being your favorite meal!
