10 Best On-The-Go Breakfasts

If you’ve ever tuned into Purely’s Instagram stories, you probably know that most of my days are filled with early flights, morning workouts or breakfast meetings. Since traveling can leave you both dehydrated and undernourished, I make sure that I ALWAYS have a healthy breakfast in tow. Bringing a piece of my normal routine with me wherever I go helps me stay alert and energized. Check out some of my sweet and savory favorites below!

Sweet

  1. Overnight Oats

Combine oats, yogurt, chia seeds and nut milk in a mason jar and refrigerate overnight. In the morning get creative and top with various fruits, nuts/seeds and granola!

  1. Chia Pudding

Similar to overnight oats, soaking chia seeds and nut milk overnight will result in a thick pudding full of fiber, protein, and omega-3s to keep you super satisfied. Flavors can range from matcha to mango and more, so get inspired!

  1. PB & Banana Sandwich

One of the easiest options to travel with is the classic PB&B sandwich. Take two pieces of gluten free bread, smear with peanut butter and sliced banana. You can even tailor this to suit your dietary needs/preferences with almond butter, sunflower butter or seasonal fruits.

  1. Breakfast Stuffed Sweet Potato

This can also be made savory with beans, eggs, avocado and salsa, but my favorite method is with a spoonful of dairy-free yogurt, our Maple Walnut Probiotic Granola and Nuttzo nut butter. Just bake the sweet potato ahead of time and take it go!

  1. Homemade Granola Bars

Since many store bought options contain unrecognizable ingredients and added sugar, I prefer to make my own. Using our Ancient Grain Granola makes them especially sweet & salty. Feel free to add dried fruits, chopped nuts, or dark chocolate chips to change up the flavors.

  1. Purely Elizabeth Oat Cups

If you don’t have access to a kitchen or time to food prep, throwing an oat cup in your bag is always a guaranteed success! I use the coffee machine in hotel rooms or ask for hot water from my barista to cook the oats. If you have protein or nut butter packets, those can be great add-ins as well.

Savory

  1. Breakfast Burritos

Breakfast burritos are a great, easy breakfast to keep on hand. I make a batch of my favorite sweet potato & black bean burritos, wrap them in foil and store them in my freezer. Eggs and beans will provide protein while sweet potatoes are a complex source of carbs to keep you full and focused.

  1. Egg Muffins

One of my favorite grab-and-go options is a couple of pre-prepped egg muffins that I can pair with some fruit for a high protein and nutritionally packed breakfast. Simply blend or whisk eggs with your favorite diced veggies then pour into muffin tins. Bake for 15-20 minutes before storing in the refrigerator.

  1. Stuffed Avocado

Okay so apparently latte filled avocados are a thing, but I haven’t quite figured that one out yet. I like to fill mine with tuna salad, quinoa salad or even a spin on caprese salad.

  1. Starbucks Certified Gluten Free Breakfast Sandwich

Mostly because I’m really excited that Starbucks FINALLY has a savory gluten-free breakfast option! Sometimes life gets in the way and meal prep just doesn’t always happen. If you’re in a bind this sandwich will pack in 18g of protein and 6g of fiber.
