In our dream world, we would have a leisurely Sunday style brunch feast every morning — reading the paper while enjoying eggs, waffles, pancakes, cereals with fresh yogurt, and milk — sigh, our hearts are lifted at the very thought! But, in reality, our weekday mornings are usually chaotic and rushed, with a drive by at Starbucks to get our caffeine injection and an “I’ll eat later” mentality. This leads to energy crashes and mood swings, sometimes displayed in symptoms like staring blankly at a computer screen, saying weird things in important meetings, or having…shall we, say, rash reactions at unnecessary moments.
Friends, this has to stop! Everyone deserves a yummy, satisfying breakfast before a big day! We’re all busy, over-scheduled people — we need to take care of ourselves, and a good, healthy breakfast is the perfect way to start the day off right. So, R29 is here to help with all our fast and easy breakfast recipes: Gone are the days where you’ll wake up and feel at a loss for what to make or how to make it. We included everything from the six basic egg dishes (which take less than 5 minutes!) and also a huge arsenal of oatmeal, smoothie, and pancake recipes. These dishes have been tested by our own staffers, so we know they’re not only delicious, but time crunch friendly, too. And trust us, whipping up one of these breakfast recipes will leave your tummies feeling full (and thanking us) later.
Now, we know there is an inner lazy-girl in all of us. And if we’re totally honest, we don’t consider ourselves early birds either. To that end, we’ve also got recipes for last minute types — like breakfast you can make in advance and just grab and go or whatever-is-in-your-pantry hash. Basically, Refinery29’s got your back 100% of the way.
