chia seed puddingMornings can be hectic, but it’s important to start your day off right with a hearty meal. You can enjoy delicious and nutritious breakfasts with a little planning and simple ingredients. Here are 9 breakfast ideas that are quick and easy to prepare, even on busy mornings.

1. Overnight Oats

For a ready-to-eat, nutrient-packed breakfast, overnight oats are a lifesaver. Combine rolled oats with your favorite milk or dairy-free alternative, add toppings like fruit, nuts or honey, and store in the refrigerator overnight.

In the morning, you’ll have breakfast that requires no additional prep or cook time!

2. Smoothie Packs

Pre-packaged smoothies are a great way to enjoy a healthy breakfast with minimal effort. Prepare your smoothie pack with fruits, vegetables and chia seeds or protein powder.

In the morning, blend a pack with milk or juice and you’ll have a delicious smoothie in minutes!

3. Avocado Toast

Avocado toast is a quick, satisfying and versatile breakfast option. Simply toast a slice of whole-grain bread, spread ripe avocado on top and sprinkle with salt, pepper and any other desired toppings like cherry tomatoes, feta cheese or a poached egg.

At Colony Diner, we make Avocado Toast with fresh sliced avocado and tomato on open faced multi-grain toast. You can also add two eggs, any style for some protein!

4. Greek Yogurt Parfait

A Greek yogurt parfait is both nutritious and quick to assemble. Layer Greek yogurt with granola and fresh or frozen fruit. This option is high in protein and provides a good balance of carbohydrates and healthy fats to keep you energized throughout the morning.

5. Egg Muffin Cups

Whisk together eggs, your choice of vegetables, cheese and cooked meat, if desired. Pour the mixture into a lined or greased muffin tin and bake. This make-ahead breakfast can be stored in the fridge and heated in the microwave for a quick, protein-packed morning meal.

6. Banana Pancakes

Add bananas to your pancakes for a quick and healthy twist, with some natural sweetness! Mash one ripe banana into your batter and cook the mixture as you would regular pancakes.

7. Breakfast Burrito

Breakfast burritos can be prepared ahead of time and frozen for a quick grab-and-go meal. Fill whole-grain tortillas with scrambled eggs, black beans, cheese and salsa. Wrap tightly in foil and freeze, then microwave in the morning until heated through.

8. Chia Seed Pudding

Chia seeds are considered a superfood because they are high in antioxidants, minerals, fiber and omega-3 fatty acids. Mix chia seeds with your favorite milk or dairy-free alternative, add a sweetener like honey or maple syrup, and let it sit overnight in the fridge.

In the morning, top with fruits or nuts for added flavor and texture.

9. Fruit and Nut Bars

Homemade fruit and nut bars are perfect for busy mornings when you need to eat on the run. Combine oats, dried fruits, nuts and a binder like honey or peanut butter, then press the mixture into a baking dish.

Bake and cut into bars, which can be stored for several days.
