College is full of busy days with a mix of deadlines, meetings and responsibilities. It's easy to let breakfast become something that you only make when you have time, which usually ends up being pushed off and never happens because you're too busy running out the door to make it to class on time.
Don't leave breakfast on the back-burner; it can be easier than you think with these quick and easy recipes that don't require a microwave or stove, so they can be made right in your dorm room with just a few ingredients.
If you’re looking to step up traditional instant oatmeal, try overnight oats, which are even easier because they don’t require any microwaving. Just add water or milk to rolled oats and store it in a glass jar or container for a few hours or overnight. In the morning, all you have to do is add the toppings – anything from nuts to dried or fresh fruit, and your breakfast is ready.
Making a smoothie can be made easier than you think with a single-serve blender, which is portable for your convenience. Add frozen fruit, veggies and yogurt or protein powder to some water or milk for a quick and delicious drink to take with you as you head on your way.
3. Yogurt parfait
It may sound fancy, but making a yogurt parfait is a simple and tasty breakfast that won't make you feel guilty because of its healthy ingredients. Pair up your favorite plain or flavored yogurt with dried or fresh fruit, nuts and granola. For an extra sweet touch, drizzle a little honey over the top.
4. Toast with peanut butter and bananas
To fix up a breakfast that only requires a few basic ingredients, fix up some toast. To make a sophisticated version of the toast you ate as a child, cover a slice of your preferred bread with peanut butter and then add slices of banana to top it off. This sweet treat is the right way to kick off your busy day.
5. Avocado and egg toast
For a breakfast packed with nutrients, eating hard-boiled eggs and avocado as your first meal can help you start your day off right. Spice up a regular piece of toast with slices of hard-boiled eggs and avocado. For additional convenience, buy ready-to-eat hard-boiled eggs or have them peeled and ready to slice onto your toast. For extra taste, add a light drizzle of olive oil and some salt and pepper for a wholesome meal.
