6 Quick and Easy Breakfast Ideas for Busy Mornings
Breakfast has long been heralded as "the most important meal of the day," and many doctors and wellness experts have pointed to the health benefits of starting your morning with a nutritious meal. Unfortunately, according to a new study from market research firm The NPD Group, most Americans are foregoing homemade fare in favor of quick grab-and-go options, proving that, more than anything, we want convenience before we embark on our respective commutes. With that in mind, we gathered six simple (and delicious!) recipes to kick off your day on the right note.
Banana and Blueberry Overnight Oats
Nutrition coach and self-taught chef Joe Wicks, who's gained a cult following for his 15-second cooking video tutorials on Instagram (@thebodycoach) claims carbs are essential for kick-starting muscle recovery—especially following a morning sweat session. His personal favorite recipe? These banana and blueberry overnight oats, which can be prepped the night before if you're tight on time. Get the full breakdown here.
Avocado and Smoked Salmon Tartinettes
Jody Williams, the inventive chef behind N.Y.C.’s ultra-charming French restaurant Buvette (and its Parisian counterpart), loves this simple recipe because it dresses up so well. “For a special occasion, add a spoonful of caviar or salmon roe on top, and open a bottle of Champagne,” she says.
