Since childhood, the idea that breakfast is the most important meal of the day has been evident in every aspect, from parents’ preachings to TV advertisements. However, the luxury and rarity of sleep for many college students often outweigh the benefits of a fulfilling morning meal, but rushing out the door with a last-minute and likely unhealthy snack can be a thing of the past. If you want to start your day off right and still be able to hit the snooze button, try making one of these five healthy, easy breakfast meals for all you on-the-go college students.

Microwave French toast

This recipe combines just a few kitchen staples to create a breakfast that evokes a sense of comfort and nostalgia. All you will need is milk, eggs, butter and bread. If you want to elevate your morning to the next level, add flavors like cinnamon, vanilla, chocolate chips, chopped nuts or syrup. The absolute marvel of this recipe is that all of the wonders of a classic French toast can all be whipped up with just a mug and a microwave, making this a go-to breakfast meal that can be served in less than five minutes.

Sweet potato breakfast bowl

OK, hear me out: Sweet potatoes may not scream “breakfast,” but their creaminess serves as a perfect base to a morning bowl. Plus, getting your fruits and veggies in has never tasted so good. Much like a smoothie bowl, this meal is easily customizable with a wide range of toppings: granola, fresh fruit, coconut flakes, honey — you name it, this bowl can have it. So if you’re looking for a unique twist on your morning routine, this sweet potato breakfast bowl is not only one-of-a-kind but is sure to revolutionize your breakfast meals.

Morning parfait

On-the-go food trends will come and go, but a classic parfait is a morning meal that is here to stay. Simply grab a mason jar or any other portable container and begin the layers of creamy, crunchy, creative flavors that make a parfait as limitless as your imagination. My personal favorite combination is vanilla yogurt with honey, pumpkin seeds and some fresh berries. Want to get into the fall spirit? Try adding pumpkin spice, apples and granola to satisfy all your PSL cravings.

Microwaveable eggs

Eggs are a staple of an American breakfast. There’s scrambled, boiled, poached, baked, omelet, frittata and endless other variations. To the luck of students everywhere, the almighty egg can be cooked simply with the press of a microwave button. This guide by gives a solution to an easy breakfast meal in under 90 seconds. To really make your morning one-of-a-kind, incorporate tasty ingredients like salt and pepper, cheddar, gruyere or swiss cheese, and even vegetables like spinach or tomatoes. If you don’t end up using that entire dozen of eggs for your scrumptious breakfast, check out these 151 different egg recipes by Delish to enjoy for any meal of the day.

Overnight oats

This versatile and transportable morning meal has been all the rage in the food trend community these past few months, and it’s no wonder why. It utilizes creative, customizable ingredients, tastes delicious, and above all is 100 percent Instagram-worthy. However, one of the most appealing aspects of this recipe is the fact that you can prep this meal the night before, resulting in a substantial, healthy breakfast that only requires a spoon and a hungry appetite in the morning.

So while you could keep picking up that last-minute granola bar as you rush out the door, or continue to snack on some sugar-filled pastry to hold you over until lunch, start your day off with a boost with one of these healthy, easy, on-the-go meals. Whether you’re looking to impress your friends with your culinary skills, or just want to start taking the steps towards a more fulfilling, fresher diet, breakfast offers countless ways to revolutionize how you eat and how you live.
