Doctors say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It's the meal that fuels you after a long night of sleep so you have the energy to take on the tasks of the day. Unfortunately, it can be hard to find the time to make breakfast, especially if you are the type to just grab a coffee and head out the door. If you're more likely to hit the snooze button than jump out of bed to cook a meal, then here are three breakfast and coffee pairings that are perfect for you:
1. Muffins And Dark Roast
If you're craving something sweet in the morning, a chocolate chip muffin is the perfect thing to hit the spot. You can make muffins ahead of time and freeze the ones you don't need right away. Then you can just grab a muffin on your way out the door. Pair muffins with a dark roast coffee, since the robust flavor will offset the sweetness nicely. Starbucks k-cup coffee pods come in a few different dark roasts, so you can make a single cup of coffee quickly as you're heading out the door.
2. Muesli With A Blonde Roast
Muesli is a delicious breakfast food that's also very healthy. It's a cold breakfast cereal made from dried fruit, seeds, nuts, and oats. It can be eaten dry like granola, or you can soak it in milk or water overnight for an easily digestible morning meal. Since muesli is so light and healthy, it pairs well with blonde roast coffee.
3. Coffee-Fueled Protein Shake
If you like to work out in the morning, you may ordinarily skip breakfast because you don't like the feeling of exercising with a full stomach. However, it's still important to have a light meal to fuel your workout. A protein shake is a great compromise. According to the Huffington Post, whey protein is the best choice since it contains all the complete protein that your body needs. For a delicious breakfast shake, combine 4 ounces of cold milk, two scoops of chocolate protein powder, and 12 ounces of cold coffee. Brew the coffee the night before using a Starbucks k-cup and your Keurig machine and chill it in the refrigerator overnight. If you want your protein shake to be more like a milkshake, you can add a few ice cubes before putting it in the blender.
These are just a few breakfasts to try if you're always on the go. Even the busiest person has time for these quick meals. With the convenience of a Keurig machine and Starbucks k-cup coffee pods, you never have to leave the house without having coffee and a bite to eat.Share
