5 Healthy Breakfast Ideas for Teachers on the Go


I've been following Cole of Cookbookish on Instagram for a while, and I am always so amazed by the delicious dishes she manages to whip up before and even during school! She's agreed to share 5 of her best breakfast ideas for teachers with us-- I'll let you take it from here, Cole!

Teaching is such a giving profession. As teachers we give so much time and energy and brainpower and love to our students every day. And we get so much in return, yes, of course, but we also need to be super mindful of the way we take care of ourselves while we’re taking care of others. We can’t do well by our students if we don’t do well by ourselves. For me, a huge part of ‘doing well’ is feeding ourselves with foods that give us energy.

Everyone says breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and say what you will, but it’s kinda true! Especially if you’re trying to fuel your body for a day full of teaching kids! I wanted to share five of my go-to quick and easy breakfasts for the school week – post photos of your #schoolbreakfast and tag me @cookbookish_ so I can see your creations! 

Happy eating!

1. Yogurt Bowl


ingredients
  • 1 small container of yogurt of choice (I love siggis whole milk yogurt – so creamy)
  • 1 handful fresh berries of choice
  • 1 tsp nut butter of choice (I love any nut butter with no added sugars)
  • a sprinkle chia, hemp, and/or flax seeds
instructions
  • add everything to your yogurt, mix, and enjoy!
  • I suggest keeping a jar of your favorite nut butter in school along with seeds (chia, hemp, and/or flax) so all you have to bring in day of is your yogurt.

2. Smoothie Bowl


ingredients
  • 1 ½ cup frozen cauliflower (or 1 banana if you feel weird about cauli in your smoothies, but it’s good I promise! Don’t knock it 'til you try it!)
  • ½ cup blueberries
  • 1 tsp nut butter of choice
  • ½ cup milk of choice
  • ½ cup water
  • a few shakes of cinnamon
  • optional toppings: fresh fruit, nuts, coconut flakes, seeds
instructions
  • if it’s the night before, blend all ingredients and put in temp controlled container/water bottle (I invested in a hydro flask and love it/use it everyday for hot and cold drinks)
  • if it’s the morning of, blend all ingredients and put in any bottle
  • if making smoothie bowl, pour into bowl, and top with things you love like fresh fruit, coconut flakes, nuts, and seeds

3. Egg and Avocado Toast


ingredients
  • 1 egg
  • ½ avocado
  • 1 piece toast (I love Ezekiel’s – stays well in the school freezer and has more protein than most bread)
  • salt, pepper, and seeds
instructions
  • prepare egg night before (see my post here for ways to cook your eggs – hard, medium, or soft boiled)
  • lightly toast bread
  • mash avocado onto toasted bread, top with salt, pepper, and seeds
  • add (mashed) egg on top of toast

4. Adult PB&J


ingredients
  • 1-2 pieces bread (Ezekiel’s!)- can be open toast or a sandwich
  • nut butter of choice
  • fresh raspberries
  • seeds
instructions
  • lightly toast bread
  • spread nut butter on toast
  • mash raspberries on top until jelly-like
  • top with seeds
5. Blueberry Honey Cinnamon Overnight Oats

ingredients
  • ¼ cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup milk of choice
  • 1-2 teaspoons raw honey
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ cup fresh blueberries
  • a few sprinkles of seeds
instructions
  • combine milk, oats, seeds, honey, and cinnamon in a jar (mason jars work well) with a lid and shake
  • add blueberries to jar and cover again
  • refrigerate overnight and take to school in the morning
