One-Minute Breakfasts!

We all know that breakfast is certainly an important meal and skipping it does not start the day off on the right foot. Not only is it hard to focus and concentrate at school but it also sets you up to over-eat later in the day. At Camp Endeavor, our campers often tell us that they don’t have time in the morning to make a decent breakfast, so here is a list of quick, on-the-go meals!

  • ready-to-eat cereal topped with sliced banana, sunflower seeds and yogurt
  • bran muffin and yogurt topped with berries
  • peanut butter or hummus on whole-wheat toast or soft tortilla and milk
  • cheese or lean-meat pizza slice and orange juice
  • instant oatmeal topped with dried cranberries and grated cheese
  • breakfast smoothie (milk, fruit, and bran, whirled in a blender)
  • toasted whole-wheat waffle topped with fruit, nuts, and ricotta cheese
  • granola topped with canned peaches and yogurt
  • whole-grain bagel topped with fruit chutney, baby carrots, and milk
  • lean ham or deli meat on a toasted english muffin, vegetable juice
  • low-fat yogurt with granola and cut-up fruit mixed in
  • heated leftover rice mixed with beans, peppers and cilantro, and vegetable juice or milk
  • breakfast wrap with cut-up fresh or canned fruit and yogurt, rolled in a whole-wheat tortilla and milk
