A healthy diet is the biggest challenge and also a problem of the 21st century. This is a fact no one can deny. There are numerous arguments people can use to prove their point and dispute this fact, but the truth is that junk food is more attainable. When you enter the store, you will have a dozen junk food options, and maybe one or two healthy meals.
The issue becomes even bigger if you work long hours, and leave your home at the crack of dawn and come back late in the evening. Some would say that you can cook homemade recipes the day before and bring your meals to work. Still, this is not always possible, which is why, in the following text, we will provide you with some tasty breakfast ideas.
Berry Green Smoothie
If you are looking for easy recipes, it really can’t be simpler than this one. What’s more, it also can’t get any healthier. After all, smoothies are made from fresh ingredients, such as fruits and veggies, and the best part is that you can include whatever you want.
When it comes to this particular one, you will need some blueberries and raspberries, banana, spinach leaves, as well as milk, oats, and you can add a bit of sugar to it or omit it if you want to keep it super healthy. All you have to do is mix all of these ingredients and blend them together for a few minutes, and that’s it.
There is another reason why smoothies have become everyone’s favorite breakfast. Not only can you prepare it in a matter of minutes, but you can pour it into a cup or some other type of container and drink it while on the way to work. This meal will save you so much time in the morning, and you will still manage to eat and get to the office on time, ready to work.
Okay, this isn’t one of those delicious recipes you can cook quickly in the morning, but it is completely worth it to stay up an hour longer the night before to prepare it. Plus, it includes all your favorite breakfast food, so how could you say no to it?

The first thing you have to do is whisk eggs and milk in a bowl and cook the meat you choose. You can go with sausage, bacon, ham, etc. Then sauté the chosen veggies, and add the egg mixture into it.

Finally, we will provide you with another idea that is super easy to prepare since it doesn’t involve cooking and baking, and it is a meal you can bring with you to work.
Firstly, you have to blend dates until they turn into sort of a jam, and you have to be able to shape them into small balls. Then, place honey and peanut butter into a bowl and microwave it for about 30 to 45 seconds. Combine the date with this mixture, and add other ingredients, such as oats, almonds, dried apples, vanilla, and kosher salt. Pour it into a baking tray and spread it evenly using your hands. Cover the tray with plastic wrap and place it into a fridge for 20 minutes. Lastly, cut it into even pieces, and if you want to prolong their freshness, you can wrap each piece into wax paper and store them in an air-tight container.
