1. Savory Oatmeal With an Egg
Take oatmeal to a whole new level by making it savory. Prepare as usual with milk or water, but add a pinch of salt and pepper instead of any cinnamon or sugar. Then top with an over-easy or poached egg and sprinkle on a little cheese for an extra tasty kick.

3. Peanut Butter and Banana Smoothie
Smoothies are a perfect on-the-go snack any time of day. Blend frozen bananas, peanut butter, soymilk, Greek yogurt, honey, and a few ice cubes. If this is a morning snack, keep it in a tight-sealing container and throw it in a gym or workbag. For an afternoon boost, prep it the night before and freeze. Remove in the morning, and it will be thawed and ready to enjoy after lunch. Tip: Add a scoop of your favorite chocolate or vanilla protein for an extra protein boost.
4. Blueberry Almond Overnight Oats
This is the ultimate busy-bee breakfast. Combine oats, chia seeds, blueberries, vanilla, almond milk, and maple syrup in a sealed container the night before. In the morning, top with slivered almonds and half a sliced banana, and you’re ready for breakfast. If you’re in the mood for something warm, heat in the microwave for 1-2 minutes.
