MGN’s Go-To Breakfast Ideas

Having to leave for school at 6:25, I’m lucky if I end up with matching socks on, much less with a fancy breakfast! However, I always try to make the time to throw together something filling and healthy, since nobody likes being hungry at school. Whether it be a big green smoothie or a 5 minute protein pancake, here are some of my quick and easy go-to ideas!

1.) Healthy cereal. Original, right? 😉 But really, it’s always been a favorite and you can’t beat the convenience. I amp mine up with fresh fruit and chia seeds.


2.) Oats+nut butter+mini smoothie. This combo is always a winner, and keeps me full for hours.



3. Egg Sandwich on an English Muffin. Love, love, love this combo! My toppings are almost always 1 egg+1 egg white, 1/4 avocado, and hummus. This one has kabocha squash on it because I had leftover kabocha that needed to be used up- yum!


…or just egg avocado toast!


4.) Yogurt bowls are easy and protein-packed, never without granola 🙂

5.) Already halfway made by the morning, my power parfaits are great especially when you have to wait a long time until lunch.

6.) Muffins? Yes please! These are super easy to pack in the morning


7.) 5 minute protein pancakes are common occurrences around here!


8.) And the good old bar? Not a bad choice either 🙂


After writing that post, I’m definitely making breakfast for dinner 😉

And congrats to my VitaTops giveaway winner:

    Breakfast is my favorite! Everything looks so good, especially the power parfaits! So creative. I try and make breakfast my biggest meal of the day. Lately it’s been a loaded oatmeal bowl with all kinds of things- chia, pumpkin, cocoa powder, coconut oil, almond butter, etc. etc. I’m always hungriest in the morning! 🙂

  2. Some great ideas here Sunnie, thanks for sharing!

  3. I’m a huge fan of all those breakfasts! I leave for work at the same time you leave for school, so i totally feel ya on the early morning thing!

  4. Great post! I love all of your breakfast ideas. Definitely what I eat a lot of!

    Haha, I plan on doing breakfast for lunch. I had a smoothie for breakfast, but oatmeal sounds great to warm me up on this cold rainy day! I think I’ll try your power pancake recipe this weekend, yummy! I love fitting protein in my diet to keep me full. And I’ve been doing yogurt bowls often as well, such a good replace,net for ice cream and a healthy way to satisfy a sweet tooth 🙂 have a good rest of the week

  15. This post is a breakfast lover’s dream ❤ Lately I've been hooked on yogurt bowls with fruit, cereal, and nut butter, but really, any breakfast food is pretty darn good.

  16. Cereal may not be super exciting, but it is GOOD and definitely one of my go-to breakfasts. I am also a big fan of toast with nut butter and waffle-wiches!
