If you’re lucky enough to sign up for classes that don’t start at 8:30am, then props to you. But for others, they have no choice but to wake up at 7:00am to get ready (aka me). I’m one of those people who can’t eat on-the-go because I like to eat sitting down and to just take my time if possible. Then again, I’m also one of those people who can’t just have a cup of coffee for breakfast… I need sustenance to get through my day. (Does anyone else wake up starving, or is it just me?!)
On a typical day when I have to wake up at 7am, there are 3 things I eat in my breakfast:
This is kind of obvious, but bananas are so good for you, and plus they’re so quick and easy to eat! No annoying juices dripping everywhere, and no knife involved either. I have a batch of bananas on my shelf 24/7.
2. Greek Yogurt
Yogurt is also super quick. I love getting some sort of dairy in the morning because it’s such a staple breakfast food! I get the Yoplait 100 calories one in either strawberry or mixed berry. Plus, they always seem to be 10/$10.00 at QFC!
Guys. My entire dorm does not have anywhere to cook. No stoves, no nothing. One of my friends brought a microwave, and I have to thank her eternally for that. Eggs are a must for me to start my day! I had to make do with a microwave instead of a stove – did y’all know you can cook eggs in a microwave? Two easy steps: whisk the egg in a bowl, and microwave it for about 50 seconds – that’s it! I’ve told numerous people on my floor about my method and so many of them have tried it. Not to brag or anything, but I think I changed their lives. 😉
On days I have a little more time in the morning (for example, if my first class of the day starts at like 10:30am), I’ll eat the Special K Fruit & Yogurt cereal with Almond Milk instead of Greek Yogurt.
My entire breakfast routine takes about 10 minutes total (20 minutes on cereal days), which is as quick as it gets. I never feel rushed in the mornings now, and I leave for class with a full belly.
What do you guys eat for breakfast that’s quick and fulfilling?
