Need a good idea for a quick breakfast? Sure, you could go with a bowl of cereal. But, there are some more interesting recipes to try that are also fast!The new school year is just a few weeks away. Soon, your family will be doing the “morning rush” as everyone tries to get ready and eat breakfast in a very short span of time before leaving the house. Every minute counts! Make your morning a little less stressful with these time saving breakfast ideas.

The “Traditional” Options
If you are really crunched for time, there is nothing wrong with serving your kids a quick bowl of cereal with milk. It takes seconds to prepare and a few minutes to eat. Heat up a frozen waffle or a Pop Tart if you want a super fast hot breakfast. Granola bars are great when you (or your kids) literally have to eat and run.

Yogurt and Granola Parfait
Real Simple has a quick breakfast recipe that feels like a dessert. It takes just a minute or two to prepare. This recipe is for one serving, so repeat is as needed. You will need:

* 1/4 cup granola
* 1/2 cup plain yogurt
* 1 tablespoon of maple syrup.

You will also need one parfait glass for each serving. (A regular glass will probably do if you have nothing else.) Put the granola in the bottom of the glass. Spoon the yogurt on top of it so that it covers the granola. Drizzle the teaspoon of maple syrup on the top.

English-Muffin Breakfast Pizza
Got a little more time to spare in the morning? Try this recipe from Food Network. Kids that aren’t especially motivated to get ready for school could find themselves with a new inspiration to hurry to the table when there is pizza for breakfast.

This recipe is for one serving, so repeat as needed. It takes 5 minutes to prep and 12 minutes to cook. You will need:

* 1 whole-wheat English Muffin (split into two pieces)
* 1 small tomato (seeded and diced)
* 1 teaspoon of extra-virgin olive oil
* 1 thin slice Canadian bacon (1/2 ounce, diced)
* 1/4 cup part-skim mozzarella cheese (shredded)
* Chopped fresh basil for garnish.

Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Line a small baking sheet with foil. Put the English muffin halves (cut side up) on the baking sheet. Top each one with tomato and drizzle on some olive oil. Sprinkle the Canadian bacon over the tomatoes and top with mozzarella. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes (or until the cheese is beginning to brown).

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
