If you’re anything like me, you hurry to get ready in the morning, grab your keys, and rush out the door without giving breakfast a second thought. Then, I get to my desk, and I’m starving. But I didn’t bring anything with me, and I’m left looking forward to lunch, or stuck ordering something that’s less-than-healthy for delivery.

That’s why it was important for me to learn how to master the art of meal prepping.

Preparing a Portable Breakfast

The most important part of eating breakfast, to me, is that it be something I can grab-and-go. That’s why I compiled a list of healthy, easy, portable breakfast recipes to make my life a little bit easier and a little bit tastier. The key is to pack everything in mason jars, air-tight plastic containers, or Tupperware the night before for a no-spill, easy carry.

Check them out in the slideshow below.

Chia Seed Breakfast Pudding

Pudding for breakfast? Oh, yes! Chia seeds are packed with omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, fiber, iron, and calcium, giving you the perfect boost to start the day and help keep you feeling full until it's time for lunch. It's super easy to make and includes just three ingredients. Similar to overnight oats, you prepare the meal at night and in the morning you just grab it from the fridge. 

Simply add chia seeds, milk, and a natural sweetener like honey for a delicious breakfast. You can even add fresh fruit to the mix for an extra boost of nutrition and flavor. Check out some recipe ideas here.

Soft Boiled Egg Cups

Another quick, healthy breakfast you can make in advance to grab on your way out the door in the morning, add soft-boiled eggs to a jar or Tupperware. Add some sliced avocado, cooked quinoa or chia seeds, spinach or arugula, and voila. A nutritious, easy meal that you can eat at your desk. You'll get the protein your body needs from the egg, the healthy fats from avocado, and antioxidants and fiber from chia seeds and leafy greens.

Breakfast Balls

Make these no-bake breakfast balls at the beginning of the week and have a healthy, portable meal waiting for you each morning. Packed with protein and fiber from almonds and cashews, antioxidants in the dark chocolate, and vitamin C from dried fruit, and whole grains from the oats. The perfect recipe to pre-pack in a small Tupperware container and add to your lunchbox the night before. Best of all, it's absolutely delicious.

Yogurt Parfaits

Prepare yogurt parfaits filled with low-fat, sugar-free Greek yogurt, fresh fruit, and granola in the evening and grab a cup in the morning. With as few as three ingredients, but the option to add as many healthy extras as you like, you can't go wrong with a breakfast yogurt parfait. If you'd like some natural sweetener try adding a teaspoon of honey.

Frozen Smoothies

Prepare your smoothing the night before. Add low-fat Greek yogurt, almond milk, and your favorite fruits or leafy greens and put in a freezer-safe tumbler, but be sure it's not one that's designed to keep beverages cold for hours. Grab the smoothie out of the freezer in the morning and by the time you get to your desk it will be defrosted and ready to drink. Yum.
