Breakfasts on the go: simple and healthy recipes and ideas

Breakfast is widely regarded as the most important meal of the day - but many of us skip it because we'd rather push the snooze button and have an extra five minutes in bed.

However, just because your morning routine is more rushed than relaxed, doesn’t mean you can’t have a healthy breakfast.

Rennie Peppermint takes a look at the best breakfasts you can prepare in a flash and grab as you run out the door to catch your bus…


Unless you’ve had no access to the internet or television or any other human being over the past decade, it can’t have escaped your attention that smoothies have become a big deal.

Making up a batch at the start of the day or even the night before and storing in the fridge is a great way to get your day off to a healthy start as you dash out the door.

If you suffer from heartburn or indigestion, then try to avoid putting acidic fruits such as oranges or lemons into your drink and focus more on more alkaline ingredients such as vegetables, including broccoli, celery, mushrooms and fruits like bananas.

As for the taste? There are no rules, so experiment with a variety of options until you find something that’s right for you! There are classic combinations like strawberry and banana or apple and mango but many people now add green vegetables like kale and spinach for an extra kick of nutrients.

If you like green smoothies, try changing the greens every few weeks. This will help keep your smoothies new and exciting and prevent smoothie boredom.


Wait! Don’t run away just yet – homemade ice lollies are a healthy and refreshing way to start your day.

Simply get a lolly mould, fill them with some natural yoghurt and some fruit of your choice and pop in the freezer – easy.

They’ll then be ready and waiting for you in the morning as you head out.


There aren’t many simpler things to make than a peanut butter bagel – but it’s also a great way to start your day.

Prepare the night before, wrap in cling film or foil and leave in your fridge overnight. It can be eaten on your commute or kept for when you make it to your desk, giving you a tasty and protein-packed start to your day.


Simply make up a traditional omelette mix – including healthy fillings that you fancy (e.g. berries, spinach, almonds etc.) – and fill the slots in your muffin tin evenly with the mixture. Bake in the oven for around 15 minutes at 200°C or until they are firm to touch. Let them cool down and then place in your fridge.

There’s plenty of inspiration to be had out there so don’t feel confined by what we consider ‘traditional’ breakfast foods. Experiment and see what works for you to ensure you get your day off to the best possible start.
