Eating a balanced diet is tricky, especially when your time at home seems like a constant flurry of activity. I’ve found that I do best when I plan ahead, and when I make meals portioned out in advance. I also keep some quick go-to snacks, breakfast and lunch options in my desk.
I’ve rounded up a list of 20 breakfasts that you can make ahead for work – both cold and hot options! Some of these can be made in advance and frozen, others are great for grab & go.
- Breakfast burrito
- Overnight oats
- Bagel & cream cheese
- Yogurt and fruit
- Egg cup
- Scrambled eggs & toast
- English muffin with peanut butter
- Fruit and granola bar
- Toast with jam/jelly
- Fruit smoothie
- Breakfast quesadilla
- Toast with peanut butter and sliced banana
- Eggs and potato scramble with cheese
- Breakfast sandwich – English muffin, egg and cheese
