However, all three of my favorite weekday breakfasts allow you to skirt the edges of this dictum. It's true that "fast" is in the eye of the beholder, but know that the more you cook, the faster you will be.
At this point, it's worth noting that I prefer a high-protein breakfast because - for me - eating more protein means that crazy famished hunger and foot-dragging mid-morning exhaustion are much less likely to occur. I'd also note that while I want to eat "healthy" food, I refuse to eat food I don't like. While a bowl of bran flakes and a banana would I guess be nutritious, I'm unwilling to choke them down - and fortunately, I don't have to.
There are some amazing waffle, muffin and crepe recipes I can't wait to share with you, and for a truly special breakfast, try my apple pancake recipe here. But we live most of our lives during the week, and there's no reason that we can't eat well on those days too.
