Our Favorite Healthy Grab-and-Go Breakfasts

By Michele Foley, POPSUGAR

[post_ads]Being pressed for time can make it hard to sit down and enjoy breakfast, and too many times, we skip breakfast altogether or opt for a calorie-laden pastry, which is not the best way to start your day. A healthy breakfast can help keep metabolism consistent and energy levels fired up. Instead of skipping your morning meal, grab one of these healthy breakfast dishes as you rush out the door. Each recipe is well-balanced and filling and can be made in batches before the busy week starts.


Making a frittata couldn't be simpler, especially since you can use whatever veggies or meat you have in your kitchen to do so. Here's a basic frittata recipe that will give you enough servings through the week, or cut back on calories with this recipe for an egg-white frittata. To make the dish even more commuter-friendly, bake eggs using a muffin pan like in this recipe for gluten-free turkey, broccoli, and egg muffins.

Tip: Make a frittata on Sunday evening and portion it out in small plastic containers for the rest of the week. You can easily reheat a frittata in the microwave, but this dish is pretty tasty cold.


Yogurt Parfait

Skip sugary parfaits from Starbucks and McDonald's, and make your own at home. All you need is a mason jar to store the ingredients, and you've made an easy, on-the-go breakfast! Start with some plain Greek yogurt; cut up your favorite fruits, grab some granola or cooked quinoa, add nuts, and start layering!


Pancakes are always a treat when fresh off the griddle, but if frozen correctly, they also taste good days — even weeks — later!

First, make a batch of healthy pancakes using whole-wheat flour and fresh berries; once the pancakes have cooled, they're ready to freeze. Separate individual pancakes with wax paper, and store them in a large plastic container in the freezer. Reheat them later in the oven or microwave, or let them thaw overnight in the fridge and enjoy at room temperature.

Looking for a healthy pancake recipe? We are partial to these pancakes made with whole-wheat flour and berries. If wheat and dairy aren't your thing, then try one of these recipes for vegan pancakes or low-carb almond pancakes.

Breakfast Casseroles

Whether it's french toast, the breakfast enchiladas shown here, or an egg strata, breakfast casseroles make the perfect dish for those who don't have a lot of time to spare in the kitchen. Cook one up on the weekend and just grab yourself a slice throughout the week to take with you to the office.


One of the easiest morning meals to take on the go is a smoothie. Make one of these healthy smoothie recipes, featuring a mix of produce and protein in the form of yogurt, milk, or powder, the night before. Store it in the fridge, and grab your smoothie as you walk out the door.

Tip: If you have a long commute, then store your smoothie in a Blender Bottle. Each cup comes with a wire-whisk-like ball that easily combines ingredients with a simple shake — the perfect solution in case any ingredients have settled overnight.


Energy Bars

Save money by baking up a batch of energy bars to start off your morning. These low-sugar oatmeal banana bites are a great way to fuel in the morning! If banana isn't your thing, then try one of these other healthy energy bar recipes. We're especially fond of these coconut-almond bars, which are packed with everything you need to help you power through the morning!


Overnight Oats

When it comes to grab-and-go breakfast, overnight oats continues to be a huge hit thanks in large part to the never-ending topping possibilities.

Muffins and Bread

Skip the empty calories from store-bought and coffee-shop muffins, and make your own instead. When done right, a muffin can actually be a filling and nutritious breakfast. This recipe for banana smoothie muffins is filled with a healthy secret ingredient you won't even taste — spinach! Or opt for a low-sugar, high-protein raspberry muffin instead. If a slice of breakfast bread is more your thing, then try this recipe for coconut banana bread.

Chia Seed Pudding

The mason jar makes all sorts of to-go breakfasts a reality. Case in point: chia seed pudding. Full of good-for-you omega-3s and fiber, chances are you'll feel lighter after having some of this goodness in the morning. It takes a matter of minutes to prep everything you need the night before, then just grab your breakfast as you're headed out the door the next day.
