Well sence I'm starting college and have to get up early to drive like 30 minutes I was curious what are sone quick healthy and cheap breakfist ideas?
If you like cereal then i recommend Kashi vanilla Graham. About 3.12 in stores and is breakfast for whole week. One cup has 170 calories with 13 protein and 10 fiber. With milk and a piece of fruit, you got a good quick breakfast!
Bowl of brown rice with a fried egg or two on top. Some butter, salt and pepper, garlic powder (I fry onions and cabbage too but that's when i have more time). Mix the egg in. Delicious, nutritious, cheap. But maybe not as easy as u wanted if you're in a little dorm room & you don't have a rice cooker and can't easily fry an egg.
You can find your local food co-op or whole foods store and check out their bulk cereals and find some you like. A bowl of that with some kefir (drinking yogurt) or almond milk is quick. I avoid soy milk & other soy products because of some things I've read. Eat an apple. Boil up some eggs every week and keep em in the fridge for a quick protein snack/breakfast.
In a blender 1 frozen banana, frozen 1/4 cup strawberries, 1/4 cup frozen pineapple, a touch of honey, 1/4 cup frozen spinach, 1 cup or maybe a bit more coconut milk and 2 tbsp chia seeds. Wonderful quick and healthy smoothie.
Cooked instant oats topped with low fat yoghurt and fruit. Quick, fast, tasty and filling!
Try two eggs & two pieces of toast for a few weeks.
You can have them fried, scrambled, boiled. And voth low for calories too which is a bonus. 220 cal which should be an aim for your breakfast.
If not that. 100grams of any meat and small salad.
Carful of your yogurt choices, they can be full of sugars.
Buy a juicer for your dorm. You don't need a fridge to store most produce anyway!
When I worked 10 hour shifts I'd have a juice at 5:30 in the morning and a bowl of whole grain cereal at 9. You don't want a sugar crash so go for a cereal that has less than 5 grams of sugar. I love Purely O's and Nature's path Heritage Flakes. Add a banana slathered with some almond butter and you're good to go!
Also, oatmeal (not prepackaged!) in the microwave toppes with nuts and dates can be ready in under 5 minutes.
Hey, this may not sound tasty, but it doesn't take long and better than you think.
Oatmeal, fruit, and two eggs
Start making the oatmeal
While you boil the water or microwave your oatmeal make your
Once the oatmeal is done add the eggs & they should finish being made by the oatmeal's heat
The last step takes some trial n error, so practise a bit.
I have 100g of Greek yogurt with 10g of Frosted Mini Wheats crumbled in. Sometimes I add a banana as well.
Blend 1cup of dry oatmeal and 1cup egg whites... Add agave syrup per taste. Cook batter in skillet like a pancake.
You can make the night before and reheat in toaster.
