Breakfast Ideas for the Busy Momma


I would love to say that I always enjoy “Breakfast like a queen” but you know what, there is just not time for that on a Monday morning. Between sleeping-in to the last possible minute, playing shower shuffle with hubby, and getting the tot up and out the door, I am lucky that I usually get more than a cup of coffee and a granola bar.

Here are three of my personal favorites for the busy momma looking for a fast breakfast:

1. Peanut Butter Toast (the right way)
Pop that bread in the toaster and get the toddler in his coat and shoes. When it pops up, slather on the real butter then the peanut butter. Feeling extra sluggish? Top with honey {local and raw if that’s your jam}.

If you are not so busy, try this Cinnamon Broiled Toast from The Pioneer Woman.

2. Strawberry Banana Smoothie
Frozen berries + 1 whole banana + plain full fat greek yogurt and splash of your juice of choice.  I include hemp protein and chia seeds, but maybe you won’t.  I loved these when I was breastfeed and so thirsty. All. The. Time.

When you have time to eat your smoothie out of a bowl, you could could try this Green Super Smoothie Bowl from Dana at the Minimalist Baker.

3. Cashews and Craisins + Naked Juice
I overslept, toddler is not playing nice and hubby used all the hot water. This is my go-to on the day I just have to stop at the gas station and grab and go! It happens!

What are your favorites?
