Think you don’t have time for breakfast? Think again. These healthy, well-balanced quick bites are ready in 10 minutes or less.

#1: Cereal and Milk
A bowl of whole grain cereal and low-fat (1 percent) or nonfat (skim) milk topped with fresh fruit like banana, berries or raisins.

#2: Oatmeal
Cook up quick-cooking oats (not the sugary small packets) with a few cinnamon sticks. Add a touch of honey or brown sugar and top with fresh fruit or a tablespoon of chopped nuts. Still not quick enough? Cook the oatmeal the night before, store in the fridge and reheat in the microwave. Poof, a healthy breakfast ready in minutes.

#3: Breakfast Burrito
