Sometimes cooking breakfast isn’t on the agenda despite how we try, and there are myriad reasons why firing up the stove first thing in the morning isn’t in the cards. Maybe you’re running late. Maybe you want to eat something awesome but exude minimal effort. Maybe it’s just too hot to cook. Maybe you’ve got tons of veggies, a great looking loaf of bread, and not a lot of time. All of these reasons are perfectly respectable; embrace them and try some of these no-cook breakfasts.
Who says salad is just for lunch or dinner? This salad takes the classically refreshing combo of prosciutto-wrapped cantaloupe a few well-thought-out steps further. Add in arugula, mozzarella balls, and a homemade balsamic vinaigrette. Skip the prosciutto altogether if you’re vegetarian; it’ll still be great.
Naturally sweet, crunchy, and creamy at all once: dairy-free yogurt, a strawberry compote and plenty of fresh berries, and paleo granola with nuts, seeds, coconut flakes, maple syrup, and some dried fruit.
Avocado toast is not a stranger to many a breakfast table, be familiar, but these variations (sushi toast! chickpeas and harissa!) may inspire you to switch up your toast game in the morning in no time.
No-bake crust with pecans and dates. Greek yogurt, honey, and whatever fresh fruit you have on hand, and you’ve got breakfast.
Take your favorite nondairy milk, some chia seeds, some natural peanut butter, a little bit of maple syrup and of course, the oats, and put them all in a covered jar. Stick it in the fridge and you’ll be eating breakfast the next morning while your coffee brews.
Provided you’re the kind of person who has hard-boiled eggs at the ready in the fridge, this recipe is ready for you in no time at all.
This would work with almost any fruit; if you can use seasonal fruit, all the better. Combine Greek yogurt, a little honey or maple syrup, and some granola in popsicle molds the night before and you’ve got a refreshing and fun breakfast that feeds everyone fast.
Whether they’re loaded with greens, or almond butter or cherries or protein powder, there’s a smoothie for everyone, almost every day of the week with these six variations.
Waking up with orange-vanilla flavors feels like a good way to brighten a morning. Soak the chia seeds overnight in nondairy milk, and to pair with honey or maple syrup, orange zest, and other delicious things like shredded coconut or chopped nuts. A dollop of jam works, too.
Sandwiches are typically just about assembly—no real cooking involved. But add some smoked salmon, cream cheese on rye toast, along with dill and a hard-boiled egg is breakfast ready in a few minutes.
