My Go-To Easy Healthy Breakfast Recipes

As a college student, it can be so easy to skip out on breakfast in order to rush to class or crunch in some study time for that big test.

Whatever the reason for skipping breakfast, you should really take the time out of your morning to at least eat something so that you can boost your metabolism and brain flow.

Not only will you feel fuller throughout the day, you will also be able to mentally function better especially during that nasty test!

Here are some of my go-to healthy recipes that are quick and make me feel great for the rest of the day! I hope you like them!
