Face it, SweatShedders, we all have those days where we hit the snooze button so may times that we have to run out the door at the last minute. Save yourself some time and some calories wasted on fast food (or worse, the vending machine at the office!) with these simple quick healthy breakfast recipe ideas. Maybe you’ll even spare yourself enough time to comb your hair.
5 quick healthy breakfast recipes from around the web.
1. Greek Yogurt Parfait
These beautiful parfaits are from myrecipes.com, where you can find so many great meal ideas!
I skip most dairy products because I don’t digest them well, which can make breakfast recipes fun/challenging for me. One exception to this rule is nonfat Greek yogurt. I love, love, love it plain or mixed with any number of fun ingredients.
Grano, (“grain” in Italian), are the polished whole berries from durum semolina wheat. Check your local whole foods store, but if you can’t find grano, try barley or brown rice instead. Prepare and package this beautiful parfait before you go to bed, stick it in the fridge, and grab-n-go in the am!

2. Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie
This one is from our friends at Self.com, a great source for health recipes and new workouts.
Banana and oats will give you that little kick of energy you need to get started, while greek yogurt and peanut butter will leave you feeling satisfied until time for your morning snack!

3. Mini Frittatas with Ham and Cheese
Prefer something savory? Here’s another winning breakfast idea from www.myrecipes.com.
Bake these bite-sized frittatas in a miniature muffin pan. To keep them healthy, play around with the ingredients to find what you like. If you’re like me and you stay away from pork, use some turkey sausage instead, or go meatless.
They taste great hot or at room temperature, so make them in advance, and grab-n-go!
