The morning is probably my favorite and the most relaxing part of my day. I love getting up, going on a run, enjoying a cup of coffee, and watching Good Morning America before heading off to work. I know I probably sound like I’ve aged 10-15 years BUT it’s my routine and seems to be the perfect amount of ‘personal time’ I need to get ready for the day. 

Since I spend most of my morning working out or getting ready for work, I don’t usually have time to cook an omelette or banana pancakes before heading out the door (though I wish I did). That’s why I usually stick to something healthy I can grab on-the-go or make at the office. My usual go-to’s right now are a bowl of oatmeal with nut butter and a banana or yogurt with fruit and granola. I’m going through a bit of an oatmeal kick at the moment 🙂

Healthy Breakfast On The Go


That’s why I was super excited when General Mills reached out to me to try their new Plenti Oatmeal meets Greek Yogurt since it combines two of my favorite breakfasts in one: Greek Yogurt + Oatmeal!

I found this little gem at Ralph’s and picked up a few different flavors to have throughout the week including: Apple Cinnamon, Strawberry, Peach, Blueberry, Maple Brown Sugar, and Vanilla. I typically eat Plain Greek Yogurt since it has less sugar, but I literally couldn’t stop eating this Blueberry one.

I devoured it before even making it to the car (I also must admit that I just finished a 4 mile run so the runger was real). My favorite thing about this yogurt is the texture. I loved having the chewy rolled oats already mixed in — kind of like overnight oats but no work required!

Some of my other favorite grab and go breakfasts include:

  • Perfect Bars (the Peanut Butter is my favorite!)
  • Lara Bar & Bananas
  • Flax Seed Oatmeal & Apples with Cinnamon
  • Smoothies (I just toss anything and everything in a blender, mix, and enjoy)

The most important thing for me in determining a healthy breakfast is the amount of protein and carbs. I need something that will not only keep me full but will also fuel my body before and after my workouts. Plenti Oatmeal Meets Greek Yogurt has 16 grams of whole grain and 11 grams of protein in every cup. Since I’m running 3-4 times a week, I NEED good carbs and protein in my diet.

      Two of my favorite things (and even better when combined!).

    I love yogurt with granola! It’s one of my favorite breakfasts along with oatmeal and a scoop of peanut butter. I try and go for breakfasts that keep me full and not needing a snack at 10am everyday!

      We are two peas in a pod! Though I usually always have a snack around 10:30-11 every day just because I love snacking 🙂

    I’ll defiantly have to look for this at the store! When I take breakfast on the go it’s usually overnight oats with protein powder to eat after the gym.

      I love the idea of adding protein powder to overnight oats! I’ll have to try that!

      It’s brand new and I’m in love. I had the Maple Brown Sugar today with a banana and it was so good!

    Wow! That’s an amazing idea and with the trend of overnight oats I’m surprised no one else has thought of that yet. Once I’m back on the oats bandwagon I’m going to check that out. I also eat breakfast at work, so these would be simple to store in our fridge!

      Isn’t it genius! I’ve been eating the Maple and Vanilla flavors all week! Perfect for an office breakfast or snack (also great with some nut butter on top 😉 ).

    Those look delicious! And also perfect for an afternoon snack before a workout. I’ll have to keep my eye out! I’m the same way – always so rushed in the morning, but I can’t live without my eggs! I’ve been cooking my eggs and eating them straight out of the pan – ain’t nobody got time for plates.

    Oh my gosh, seriously! This is actually a product?! I LOVE it! Such a great grab-and-go idea. I haven’t seen anything like it on the market. NEED!
