On the Go Breakfast: My 5 Faves

Breakfast is my favorite meal. I could eat it 3 times a day. I love pretty much all things breakfast - scrambled eggs, omelettes, waffles, yogurt parfaits, avocado toast, granola, pancakes, smoothies...the list goes on and on.

However, most days I don't have time to make breakfast before I leave for work, so I like to have some grub on hand that I can grab and get out the door. It needs to be healthy, delicious, quick to prepare and easy to pack.
