Healthy Breakfast Basket: Grab & Go!

2nd-sd-card-breakfast-basket-touch-of-red-mac-grill-2-17-09-003Mornings are such a hectic time, so I put out a “breakfast basket” for our son so he can grab something to eat in the car and/or later in the morning when he has a break.  This way he doesn’t skip breakfast.  These items are healthier than some other breakfast items that are low protein, low fiber, and high sugar.

I change the items up from week to week.  Fresh fruit is great to add. Variety is good!

Here are some ideas for what to put in a breakfast basket:

  • Stretch Island Fruit Co./All-Natural Fruit Leather (no sugar added, all natural fruit)
  • Fiber One Bars (2 grams of protein, 9 grams of fiber)  These are really good!  If you haven’t tried them, I recommend them.
  • Quaker Oatmeal to Go / High Fiber – Maple Brown Sugar  (4 grams of protein, 10 grams of fiber)
  • Quaker Oatmeal to Go (4 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber)
  • Bags of peanuts (Hot Peanuts have 11 grams of protein, 4 grams of fiber)
  • Small boxes of raisins (fiber, antioxidants, good for teeth, gums, and eyes)
  • Bananas
  • Apples (already washed)
  • Oranges
