Moving day is here, and things are feeling a little hectic! Between getting everyone out of the house, ensuring the last of the boxes are accounted for, and sourcing creative moving ideas to help fit those last, hard-to-fit items into the truck, you’ve got a lot on your plate. As such, breakfast is the one thing that’s not on your plate.
Don’t go into your big move hungry. Turn to these simple moving day breakfasts to nourish and sustain you and your family throughout your big day. Whip up or grab these ten easy breakfasts for a delicious meal on the go!
Oatmeal is a quick meal that will quickly become your best friend on moving day. In addition to the fact that you can make it ahead of time, it’s also dense enough to stick to your ribs all day long.
Make a big batch the day before you move and dress it up on moving morning with some fruit, honey, a little brown sugar, and chia seeds for energy. If you need to, toss it in a Tupperware and eat it on the go.
Fruit is another quick meal you can quickly turn to on moving day. For best results and a streamlined morning, grab some easy-to-eat fruit (bananas, strawberries, blueberries, pre-sliced pineapple, etc.) in the few days before your move. Rinse it, cut it, and place it in a few individual Tupperware containers.
That way, it’s easy to grab one of these on moving day and have a delicious, pre-made meal to eat on the road.
3. Egg Sandwiches
If you need some protein, turn to egg breakfast sandwiches for your moving-morning breakfast. Start by frying a few eggs in a nonstick pan with a light sprinkle of salt and pepper.
Using your favorite bread, biscuit, or croissant, lay a slice of cheese on the bread, top with a hot egg, and add a bit of hot sauce or a sausage patty according to your taste. This is a filling breakfast that’s sure to keep you going all day.
4. Breakfast Burritos
Like egg sandwiches, breakfast burritos are easy to assemble (even in bulk) and can be eaten on-the-go.
For a delicious and filling breakfast, cook a large batch of eggs, sizzle up some veggies, and add some sausage, beans, or another protein of your choice. Assemble it all in a warm tortilla with a bit of salsa and your favorite cheese. Roll it up, and you’re on your way! It’s the perfect breakfast for moving day.
5. Grab-and-go Meals
Meals like bagels, muffins, and other self-contained goods are ideal for grab-and-go breakfasts. Stock your fridge with plenty of these tasty items as your move approaches, and be sure you’re taking full advantage of them as things get closer. They’ll be a life-saver as you approach your big moving day.
6. Eating Out
Don’t forget that you don’t have to cook breakfast for yourself on your big moving day. Instead, you could easily just eat out and have someone else make you a tasty, filling meal.
For the sake of speed and simplicity, call ahead to your favorite restaurants and have them prepare your order for you before you get there. This makes it easy to grab and get back on the road with your move.
Waffles are easy to prepare for a big group (make some for your movers!) and are filling and delicious. Whip up a batch of protein waffles, top them with nut butter, honey, and a banana, and get on the road. You’ll stay full and powered-up all day long!
Smoothies are a delicious and straightforward way to get some beautiful nutrients into your diet, without slaving over an extensive breakfast.
For best results, pick up some yummy ingredients like spinach, bananas, berries, Greek yogurt, and almond mil and dump them all into the blender with some protein powder to create a power smoothie that will keep you lifting all that heavy furniture all day long. Don’t forget to make a big batch for everyone around you, as well!
9. Protein Bars
Protein bars are meant for on-the-go excursions like running, mountain climbing, and biking, but they’re also perfect for moving. Grab a few and stick them in your bag to keep yourself going during the dregs of moving day.
Yogurt is another simple, inexpensive, accessible form of protein. Grab some of your favorite Greek yogurt cups before you head out on your move and keep then on-hand the day of. You’ll be full all day!
