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.
What is eating healthy, you may ask?
Eating healthy means lessening your intake of or cutting out sugar, and eating proteins, healthy fats, veggies and fruits.
Think of it this way –
If you can’t pronounce an ingredient on the label, it’s not good for you.
That’s a good rule of thumb to abide by!
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 easy, healthy breakfast recipes from our own cooking, and from other recipes that we want to try ourselves.
1. The Almond Butter Whole-Wheat English Muffin with Fruit
You can also make this on a bagel, but the English muffin is going to be a bit healthier.
You can also sub almond butter for peanut butter –
Just make sure you’re buying natural peanut butter (oil separation does occur).
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.
I also just started making avocado toast on an English muffin and it’s equally yummy!
2. Veggie Breakfast Burrito
Even though this is meant for vegetarians, I think it looks yummy enough for everyone.
I’m all for breakfast in burrito form.
The recipe includes zucchini, eggs, and cherry tomatoes, to name a few.
Throw some avocado on it and you’ve got yourself an easy, healthy breakfast recipe.
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.
You get your healthy fats and your proteins with this dish.
This would be even more scrumptious with some salt and pepper sprinkled on top.
4. Freezer Breakfast Quesadillas
These make-ahead quesadillas are really easy, and you can add your own twist.
This recipe is perfect if you want to sleep in tomorrow!
It’s perfect for meal-prepping as well.
Just make a bunch for the week and you’re set for breakfast!
Throw some hot sauce on your quesadilla (Sriracha, anyone?) and you’ll get a quesadilla with a kick.

5. Raspberry Rainbow Bowl
I wouldn’t want to eat this breakfast because it’s so pretty.
But how delicious does this look?
This bowl is basically a fruit salad with acai and coconut flakes.
I love acai bowls, but they’re packed full of sugar.
You can lessen the sugar of this dish by adding pure granola and having less acai.

6. Apple Vanilla Greek Yogurt Pancakes
Pancakes in general are not the healthiest, but make them more of a healthier option by not using flour!
These pancakes also have protein in them (egg whites)!
These only take 15 minutes to prepare one batch of 5 pancakes.
Instead of syrup, spread some natural peanut butter or sugar-free jelly on top.

7. Low Calorie Breakfast Sandwich
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.
