Egg White Omelet with Sausage Crumbles and Peppers

Let’s take a look at these quick and easy school-day breakfast ideas that are nutritious and delicious.  All aged children will enjoy these too.

1. Smoothie

Our favorite way to make a quick smoothie is using milk, yogurt, frozen fruit, fresh banana, and ice! You can always add extras like protein powder, peanut butter, kale, spinach, and more.  But having frozen fruit bags is key to making this a fast breakfast option.

2. Muffins/Hardboiled Eggs/Applesauce

We just use the Betty Crocker muffin mix bags; our favorite is the mixed berry muffin mix.  These are so easy, then just add some hardboiled eggs, and applesauce to complete this quick option.

3. Mason Jar Parfait

I love making these parfaits, and our kids love them too.  Grab a wide-mouthed jar, and add vanilla yogurt about 1/3 of the way up. Then add the frozen berry mix next. Lastly, top off with another scoop of yogurt and sprinkle with some honey almond granola.  YUM!

4. Cinnamon or Cheese Toast/Pre-cooked Turkey Bacon/Grapes and Apple mix

I used to love it when my mom and dad made cinnamon or cheese toast for breakfast.  For the cinnamon toast, just mix cinnamon and sugar then sprinkle it on top of buttered bread.  Just toast and it’s ready! Microwave some turkey bacon that is already cooked and add some chopped up apples and grapes.

5. Egg White Omelet With Peppers and Turkey Sausage and Strawberries with Powdered Sugar

This is so quick and delicious! Simply get an egg white carton at the grocery, a frozen stir fry veggie bag, and Jimmy Dean turkey sausage pre-cooked crumbles. Pour your egg whites into a heated pan, then add veggies and sausage.  Sprinkle some mozzarella cheese on top and it is an energy-packed, yummy breakfast option.
