That said, here's a quick post about my top 3 favorite fast and easy breakfasts. *Disclaimer* These are not the most nutritionally beneficial meals in the world. If you have time a very full and balanced breakfast with fruits and vegetables is best. But for people like me, I take what I can get.
I may or may not be obsessed with oatmeal and may or may not have paid for imported Canadian oatmeal based solely on a television show and clever advertising. Luckily, it's actually really really good!
Not the fancy waffles with batter that you make in a waffle iron (which we should have asked for as a wedding gift...), just your unfancy frozen ones. First and foremost, check the ingredients. A lot of frozen foods are not what they seem. Otherwise, waffles are just as fun as oatmeal because they can also be dressed up so they seem different but are pretty good on their own too.
3. Oatmeal Raisin Walnut Clif Bar
When all else fails, I grab a clif bar. Now the "breakfast bar" is typically a big no no as they're usually highly processed and packed with nothing but sugar but Clif is a company I like, their nutrition philosophy is pretty transparent and they sponsor my third husband Tim O'Donnell.
More importantly, I try not to rely too heavily on these as a "meal" although they are higher calorie than your typical fruit and nut bar. Still if you're really in a time or money crunch, these babies travel easily and keep well so if you can only get down half before a quick catch up meeting with your boss, it will still be waiting patiently for you as you left it when you get back.
None of these will probably hold you over until lunch time although that will vary based on your serving size and activity level. I eat almost every 2 hours so keep that in mind if you're planning to serve these up as your breakfasts for the week and plan accordingly.
