Eat Up: 4 On-the-Go Breakfast Ideas – Lexington, KY

Breakfast is supposed to be the most important meal of the day. It’s also the most forgettable.

You’re told when you’re younger that you need to have a hearty breakfast every day to keep yourself going throughout the day. No one said anything about the chance of missing breakfast because you’re busy and too tired to even think about eating.

I can’t recall the last time I’ve actually had breakfast food for breakfast. I used to work nights until 2 A.M., wake up and not even think about breakfast. I was more concerned about sleeping than anything else.

It’s important to have something in your system, though, to get your morning somewhat going. Here are some on-the-go breakfast ideas that will hold you over until lunch time:

Homemade Smoothie or Something from Jamba Juice

I’m a huge fan of Jamba Juice. If I could buy one every day, I totally would. They’re healthy, refreshing and unquestionably delicious. You can also add an energy boost for an extra 50 cents. Or, if you want to go the economically-correct route, grab some fruit from the store and blend your own smoothie. It’s technically still food.

A Whole-Grain Muffin

There are two benefits to this breakfast item: First, whole-grain muffins are filled with natural goodness and don’t possess any artificial flavors. And secondly, it’s a muffin. You can’t go wrong with muffins. I prefer blueberry myself. If you know where I can get a whole-grain blueberry muffin, please let me know.

Breakfast Burrito

There was a point at one time where I ate eggs for three months straight. I got really tired of it and had to find ways to change it up. I decided to make burritos. That turned out to be a great decision. I would make three of them before heading out the door. It was awesome. You should try it.


Simple, filling and delicious. It’s like a smoothie, only smaller and in a cup. If you’re looking for a good yogurt to buy, I’d go with Greek yogurt. I’d also pick the Dannon Oikos Greek yogurt with the fruit on the bottomĀ because it’s absolutely awesome and you get it at a great value.


If you’re like me, you’re always on the go and doing things to keep you busy. It’s important to keep yourself nourished, and your friendly Lexington Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram dealership understands your hectic schedule. Eating breakfast is definitely a necessity, as long as you keep, say, anything from their brand new 2015 Jeep inventory in Lexington cleaned and crumb-free at all times. And if you simply can’t do it yourself, don’t forget about Lexington’s best car service department for those tough messes and mishaps!
