Breakfast may be the most important meal of the day, but it can also be the most difficult to make due to early morning classes. Instead of skipping the meal completely, you can prepare some ingredients the night before or throw some together within seconds in the morning. Here are some breakfast ideas that you can whip up in no time and easily take with you when you start your day:
1. Peanut Butter, Banana, Strawberry Quesadilla
You can never go wrong with the peanut butter/ banana combo. Add some strawberries in the mix, wrap it in a whole wheat tortilla, and voila! (Sprinkle some cinnamon over it for extra flavor)

(Also need a popsicle mold and sticks)
Chop berries and stir with sugar in saucepan, then place on stove until thick and jammy. Remove from heat and let cool. Mix greek yogurt with milk, honey, and granola. Continue to pour a layer of yogurt mixture then a layer of berry jam into the popsicle mold until it is full. Insert popsicle sticks, place in freezer until solid, at least six hours.
