To solve the issue of time, meal-prepping will be your best friend. Make your breakfast the night before so that it is ready to eat the moment your alarm goes off. Instead of purchasing a pre-made yogurt parfait, a quick and healthy breakfast idea that will never disappoint is a quinoa yogurt parfait. You can put all the ingredients in a mason jar or bowl so that you can bring it to work with you if you are in a rush. Another quick and healthy breakfast that can be made the night before are healthy blueberry breakfast muffins. You can even refrigerate or freeze the muffins so they last all week.

If you do have limited time in the morning but want to make your breakfast, try this quick, healthy breakfast idea: pair whole-wheat toast with two tablespoons of nut butter and banana slices. This way, you will have the perfect ratio of protein, fat, and carbohydrates to keep you satisfied until lunch time. Another quick, healthy breakfast idea that will satisfy your sweet tooth is a mixed berry breakfast smoothie. Just throw your favorite berries, almond milk, and protein powder in a blender and you are set for the morning.
