7 Easy, Healthy Recipes for College Students | Breakfast Edition

    Being in college means having a very busy schedule (especially if you're in a sorority).  It also includes the struggle of finding time to work out and eat healthy.  The stigma of healthy eating is that it will either be gross, or that it will be time-consuming and expensive.

    We're starting this series off with healthy and easy breakfast options from our own experiences, and from other recipes that we want to try ourselves.

    1.  The Peanut Butter Bagel with Fruit

    You can also make this on a whole-wheat English muffin.  Put strawberries or bananas (or both, go crazy) on top of the peanut butter.  If you have them, chia or flax seeds are both so good for you.  This is my go-to breakfast.  It's quick, and if you're running late, it's not hard to take it on-the-go.

    Even though this is meant for vegetarians, I think it looks yummy enough for everyone.  The recipe includes zucchini, eggs, and cherry tomatoes, to name a few.  Recipe here.


    3.  The Eggocado

    I'm going to go with the avocado theme for our third breakfast, because I'm a firm believer that avocado is a food group.  This would be even more scrumptious with some salt and pepper sprinkled on top.  Recipe here.


    4.  Freezer Breakfast Quesadillas

    I wouldn't want to eat this breakfast because it's so pretty. But also looks delicious.  This bowl is basically a fruit salad with acai and some other yummy stuff.  Get the ingredients here.

    These pancakes also have protein in them (egg whites)! These only take 15 minutes to prepare one batch of 5 pancakes.  Check out how to make them here.

    I love breakfast sandwiches; you can put so many things + egg on it and it always tastes good.  This breakfast sandwich includes hummus, bell pepper, turkey bacon and avocado.  Get this recipe here.
