It’s back-to-school time for many kids all over the world! 

For parents, getting organized and settled into a busy routine after a long, lazy summer can be daunting. We can help with one big piece of the puzzle – healthy meal prep. 

Popular wisdom (and many nutrition experts) say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, meaning what you eat first thing in the morning will impact your mental and physical performance for hours to come. But we know how hard it can be to find time for a healthy breakfast during the morning rush.

Good news – we’ve gathered together seven delicious and nutritious recipes from IIN grads. You can prepare almost all of them in 45 minutes or less on a Sunday evening and enjoy them all week long. 

Egg, sweet potato, and kale muffins

These paleo-friendly savory muffins from the IIN grads at Crop Tops and Kale will start your day off with a healthy dose of veggies and protein.  

Chia oatmeal breakfast cookies

These yummy “cookies” from grad Brittany Mullins are sweetened with only banana and dates and contain healthy fat and fiber to keep you full until lunch. 

Gluten-free buckwheat and oat bread

This hearty bread from grad Madeleine Shaw is packed with sunflower seeds and pumpkins seeds. We love how simple and affordable the ingredients are. 

Sweet potato granola

Packed with millet and sweet potato puree, this recipe from grad Sherrie Castellano takes granola to another level – and is done in 45 minutes. 

Paleo breaky stack

If you have a few extra minutes in the morning, you won’t regret making this satisfying combo of eggs, sweet potatoes, spinach, and lean bacon from grad Dan Churchill. 

Grain-free banana bread

This fluffy and gluten-free banana bread from grad Leanne Vogel is also totally nut-free, which makes it great for allergy restrictions. 

Dreamy chocolate chia pudding

For a decadent start to the morning, try this recipe from grad Amanda Carney. You can double or triple it to make enough for your whole family! 

Grab these healthy breakfasts on your way out the door or pack them in your kids’ lunchboxes, and start the day off right.
