Let’s face it, mornings are crazy. Waking up is hard enough without having anything to do, but add on having to be to work or class by a specific time, and you’ve got yourself a stressful and hectic situation. Unfortunately, the craziness of the morning often means that many people forget or choose not to eat breakfast. However, skipping breakfast can be extremely harmful to your clean eating lifestyle, as it often leads to excessive snacking and overeating during lunch and dinner. But luckily, breakfast doesn’t have to be a 30, 20, or even a 10 minute affair; if you’ve got just 3 minutes to spare, you can prepare these 6 healthy, delicious, and satisfying meals perfect for eating on-the-go.
10 Clean Eating On-The-Go Breakfast Recipes:
- Spiced peanut butter and banana roll-up
Spread all natural nut butter on a whole grain tortilla, and place a peeled banana at one edge of it. Sprinkle with cinnamon, then roll it up for a nutritious and portable meal.
- Pumpernickel toast with hummus and sunflower seeds
Toast up two slices of pumpernickel or whole grain bread, spread with hummus, and sprinkle with sunflower seeds for a uniquely savory breakfast filled with healthy fats. Using flavored hummus, such as roasted red pepper, makes for an even more delightful treat.
- Berries and cream english muffin sandwich
Slice an english muffin in half, spread with a bit of greek yogurt, top with berries such as raspberries or blueberries, and drizzle with honey for additional antioxidants and a boost of sweetness.
- Quick Muesli
In a plastic baggie, combine 1/2 cup of plain rolled oats with a handful of nuts and a handful of unsweetened dried fruit. This tasty, fiber filled breakfast will be sure to keep your taste buds entertained during your commute.
- Greek yogurt with pistachios and honey
The Greeks knew what they were doing when they paired honey with their yogurt. Sprinkle with pistachios and you’ve got yourself a healthy, high protein, portable, and delicious version of baklava.
- Whole grain bagel with tahini and smoked salmon
Spread half a bagel with tahini, and top with smoked salmon. Easy to hold in one hand and full of fiber and beneficial omega-3 fats, this spin on a classic brunch food makes a delicious meal to travel with.
- Sweet Potato with almond butter and cinnamon
I know this sounds odd, but trust me on this one; nut butter with sweet potatoes is a winning combo for both your body and your taste buds. Microwave your sweet potato the night before, and in the morning, split it down the center with a knife, stuff with almond butter, and add touch of cinnamon. It even tastes great cold!
- Peanut butter yogurt with fresh fruit
Mix a couple spoonfuls of natural peanut butter and some natural sweetener into a 6 once container of plain greek yogurt. It will thicken up and taste rich and decadent, almost like peanut butter cheesecake. Eat it with a piece of fresh fruit for a sweet and satisfying meal.
- Toast with cottage cheese and tomato
Top slices of toast with cottage cheese, cherry tomatoes, and salt and pepper. This quick, savory breakfast will leave you satisfied for hours.
- Pumpkin pie Greek yogurt
Take a container of plain Greek yogurt, and add a heaping spoonful of unsweetened pumpkin puree. Sweeten with a bit of honey, and spice it up with cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice; it’s like clean pumpkin pie you can eat with a spoon! Just add a handful of nuts and you’ve got yourself a balanced meal.
I was wondering if you could substitute regular plain yogurt for the Greek yogurt? I have tried and tried and just cannot get used to the taste of Greek yogurt.
LeEdna – Sure! As long as it’s plain yogurt, it should be clean. Enjoy! 🙂
Tried the banana and tortilla, the Muesli, and the cottage cheese and tomato and loved them all. The recipes are delicious and quick and I love your photography!!! Great ideas!
Patty – Thanks! I’ll pass that on to Megan! 🙂
Loved the Yogurt with Pistachios and Honey. That will become my go-to sweet thing! And with Autumn right around the corner – Pumpkin Pie Yogurt sounds yummy!.
Banana/peanut butter roll-ups are reminicent of my Gram’s PB & banana sandwiches that she made me for lunch. Can’t wait to try them.
Gail – So happy you enjoyed them! Megan has some wonderful ideas! So happy to have her on board. 🙂
You always have such great ideas. It’s easy to get stuck in a rut and have the same food over and over. Thanks for the variety. I’m looking forward to trying some of these.
Rachel – I hope you enjoy them! 🙂
These ideas are great. The pictures make me want to try them all and get out of my daily bowl of cereal rut. Thank you!
Diane – Fantastic! So happy it helped! 😀
I’ve already tried the peanut butter banana rollup and it was delicious! I can’t wait to try the rest!
Jennifer – Fantastic! 😀
Want to try the banana rollup – can someone recommend a healthy whole grain tortilla?
Maria – Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods carries them. The Alvarado Street Bakery company puts some out as does the company that make Ezekiel bread.
These recipes look absolutely delectable! I’m definitely going to have to try them. 🙂 Thanks for sharing your foodie creativity!!!
Julia – My pleasure! Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
How long do you microwave the sweet potato?
Nikki – That depends on the size of the potato. Prick holes in it and start with 3-4 minutes. Then add more at 30 second to 1 minute intervals depending on the level of “doneness”.
Fyi- tortillas, english muffins, and breads are not clean eating… They are over processed and likely the cause for constapation.
April – Actually, that’s not true. Particularly if they are homemade. There are lots of clean bread products out there, although they are not always easy to find.
Is yogurt considered clean or just plain yogurt?
Rebecca – Just plain yogurt is clean. I have, on rare occasion, found yogurts at Whole Foods that were only fruit juice sweetened. But I haven’t seen them in a very long time.
These all seem pretty brilliant, but the title is “on the go”, and I think many of them (especially the sweet potato… hmm) are not “on the go” options at all. Just a thought you might want to consider!
Lindsey – I take them on-the-go all the time! 🙂 I just put them in a travel container and I eat it while I sit in traffic.
