15 Healthy + Portable Breakfast Recipes

Never skip breakfast again! 15 healthy portable breakfast recipes for busy weekday mornings. 

Although research has proven that it’s okay to skip breakfast if you’re not hungry I’m still a big proponent of starting my day with a healthy meal. Breakfast gives you the energy you need to be productive throughout the morning and it can help prevent overeating and cravings later in the day. Plus, breakfast foods are delicious (eggs, oatmeal, pancakes — yuuuum!!).

All this said, I get that some mornings are crazy and it’s easy to get caught in the habit of skipping breakfast. That’s why I’ve put together this post with 15 healthy and portable breakfast recipes. They can be made ahead of time, travel well and taste delicious so you no longer have an excuse to skip breakfast. Mmmm kay?

PS — It is snowing like crazy here so we’re probably going to be snowed in for the weekend. I’m cool with it because we’ve got homemade chili in the crockpot, plenty of dog food, wine and a few episodes of Making of a Murderer left to watch. <– We’re addicted.

  1. These are just so perf – I always regret when I don’t have time to eat breakfast in the morning, but these photos actually make me wanna leave early with one of these breakfasts in my bag! However, I think I may also use them as non-portable ones, too… 🙂
