Vegetarian Breakfast Recipes When You're On-the-Go
If any of this sounds familiar, these vegetarian breakfast recipes might be just what you need to make sure you get a healthy breakfast. We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but for me it is often the most skipped meal of the day.
The best option for having time to enjoy our favorite vegetarian breakfast recipes in the morning is to get up just 10 to 15 minutes earlier, yet this doesn't always work out.
Ok, for me, most of the time it doesn't work out. To combat this, I now rely on the following breakfast foods to make sure that I start my day off right, even if I oversleep:
Granola Bar with Peanut Butter
This is great because it only takes a few minutes to prepare. Top your favorite granola bar with about 2 tablespoons of creamy peanut butter.
To make this even faster, get some single-serving packets of peanut butter, so you can easily grab them on your way out the door.
This way all you have to do is grab the granola bar, the peanut butter packet, and go.
Also, it is very easy to just dip the granola bar into the peanut butter and you don't have to feel guilty about double dipping!
If you don't want to waste the money on these or you are concerned about the environmental impact of extra packaging, use a larger jar of peanut butter that is your personal jar, which would have the same effect and last longer.
Just so you know, I'm not suggesting that making a smoothie in the morning will only take a few minutes.
Fruit smoothies made fresh each morning may be quick vegetarian breakfast recipes in theory, but when I'm in a rush the last thing I want to do is mess with the blender.
However, there are many bottled smoothies that are excellent. Be sure to read the labels. Go for ones with as little added sugar as possible and ideally 100% juice.

Make them the night before and refrigerate until you are ready to leave for work or school in the morning.
Fresh fruit and a handful of nuts
Not exactly a recipe, but it is a healthful and super quick way to have a good breakfast. The protein will keep you going and satisfied until lunch, while the fruit provides vitamins and fiber.
Plus, there are so many varieties of nuts and fruit to choose from that this is vegetarian breakfast recipe can stay interesting for a long time.
For example, one day you could have a banana and a handful of almonds one day, then have grapes and walnuts the next. If you have a nut allergy, enjoy fruit with a glass of milk or another source of
Just remember to go easy on the nuts. They are nutritious, but have a lot of calories and fat, so enjoy them in small portions.
Remember that about 1/4 cup of almonds has about 200 calories. The good news is that you can have as much fruit as you want! (As long as you stop eating when you feel full, of course.)
Cheese Toast Sandwich
This is one of my favorite vegetarian breakfast recipes when it's cold out and I'm in hurry because it's hot and still easy to make.
Toast bagel or two slices of bread in a conventional toaster or toaster oven, as desired. Drizzle each side of bread with a little butter.
Place one or two slices of cheese in between them. Melt in the microwave for about 30 seconds to start.
If the cheese is not melted, put it back in for 15 second increments until it is all melted.
Shredded cheese works fine for this too. However, if you want to use shredded cheese it is less messy to use bread instead of bagel.
Be careful with shredded cheese if you plan to use a toaster oven. It would be pretty annoying to have to deal with burnt cheese on the sides or bottom of the toaster oven.
These are just a few easy

that have made my life easier over the years. They are simple, nutritious, and can help you feel energetic all day without having to get up earlier than usual.
