There are some (or many) mornings where we have to do everything in our power to get out of bed to grab a filling breakfast before we head to school or work. Some mornings, we just can not be bothered to make breakfast because we are running late for school or work and end up skipping breakfast altogether.


Eating breakfast does have its benefits. It can help us to lose weight and have healthier habits. Everyone should eat breakfast before starting their day as it also gives you the energy to work better.

In case you are always on the move and always rushing out of the house, here are 5 quick and easy breakfast ideas that you can make before starting your day.

If you are craving something more filling, you can consider making this french toast that only takes 15 minutes to prepare.

This is what you need:

  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 20 ml milk
  • 2 slices bread (choose wholemeal bread for a healthier option)
  • A large pan


  1. Beat the eggs and milk together until blended.
  2. Then, soak 1 slice of bread at a time in the egg mixture. Soak about 1 minute per side. Repeat for the second slice of bread.
  3. Heat up a large nonstick pan on high heat.
  4. Place the bread slices into the hot pan and lower the heat to medium. Cook both sides until golden brown with no visible liquid egg remaining, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

This breakfast idea is easier and faster than making pancakes. To add a little more flavour to it, cut some bananas and berries for toppings at the side.
