3 quick and easy breakfasts for cold mornings

ID-100151248On cold mornings, it is all you can do to get out of bed at times. If you find yourself struggling to get up and going, making breakfast is probably the last thing on your mind, but breakfast is a very important part of getting our day started right. When you find yourself needing a quick breakfast on a cold morning, try one of these.

Fruit, Maple, and Oatmeal Parfait
This wonderfully quick breakfast has all the things you need to get you up and going without taking up your whole morning. Make a bowl of quick oats in the microwave and chop up half of a Granny Smith apple. Add the apple, 2
tablespoons of dried cranberries, 2 teaspoonfuls of maple syrup, 1 teaspoon of brown sugar, and four tablespoons of plain vanilla yogurt to the bowl. Mix well and enjoy! This gives you a serving of grains, half a serving of dairy, and a
serving of fruit in one bowl.

English Muffin Breakfast
You can get a serving of protein, grains, vegetables, and dairy in this one breakfast. Fry one egg and toast a whole wheat English muffin. Cut three strips of bell pepper, three slices of cucumber, three slices of tomato, and a few slices of onion. Add a smear of low fat cream cheese to the muffin on both sides, and then add the egg and veggies. Top with salt and pepper, cover the
whole thing with the muffin top, and enjoy with a glass of milk for a filling breakfast that is low in calories and high in the things you need to get your body and metabolism going.

Breakfast Fajitas
These fajitas are as simple as the other breakfasts on the list, but you may need to cook the meat the night before. Fry up some skirt steak and refrigerate. Then, in the morning, warm it up in a pan with bell pepper and onion and scramble and egg. On a whole wheat tortilla shell, add some cream cheese and slices of avocado. Add in the egg and the meat and pepper mixture.
Top with fresh tomatoes, roll up the fajita, and get ready for a great tasting breakfast that serves up one daily dose of veggies, two doses of protein, and more vitamins that you can count.
