Fast and Easy Breakfasts Make Speedy Morning Meals

Apr 17 2012 - 4:28am

We've all heard about the importance of a solid breakfast, but more often than not, good intentions fall victim to making the 8:10 a.m. train. I can't tell you how many New Year's resolutions I've set, only to find myself choking down pasty instant oatmeal at my desk or — gasp! — forgoing breakfast entirely. Difficult as it may be to believe, you really can make time for a filling breakfast, whether you pause for a moment to eat before running out the door or take it to go. We've compiled 10 recipes to combat the fiercest of morning hunger pangs and time crunches.
