Starting the Day with a Zing: Quick and Healthy Breakfast Choices

If you are looking for something quick or can’t find the time in the morning when you’re getting ready for the day, these easy recipes may be just right for you.

Born Sweet™ Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener is an-all natural sugar substitute made from non-artificial ingredients.

Personally, I have a hard time waking up on campus in the morning. I always end up sleeping a bit too late, rushing through my morning routine, and sometimes even skipping breakfast. It starts the day on a completely wrong foot and I just feel tired during work and class.

If you are looking for something quick or can’t find the time in the morning when you’re getting ready for the day, these easy recipes may be just right for you.  These are just some of my favorite on-the-go breakfast recipes. Add a packet or two of Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener to further appease your taste buds.  You can find Zing Stevia at these locations.

Vanilla Coffee Protein Shake

Make the first coffee of the day really count! Create a cool fluffy coffee shake with your favorite protein powder and vanilla almond milk.  I used 1.5 cups of cold coffee, 1.5 cups of light vanilla almond milk, 3 to 5 scoops of protein powder and one packet of Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener.   I love making it in my Zing Smoothie Tumbler. I simply add all the ingredients, give it a mix with the mixing straw and I’m straight out the door to my classes!  Easy! 


Oatmeal is such a stable breakfast item for me. But of course, sometimes you need a little sweetness in your life. Oatmeal has proven to have a world of health benefits, including lowering cholesterol levels and risk of heart disease.

The next time you’re at the grocery, be sure to grab these instant oatmeal cups because they’re so easy to heat up in the morning. My favorite flavor would have to be Apples & Cinnamon. However, there are plenty of other flavors you can choose from if you’re looking for something different! Sprinkle on some Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener and you’re good to go!


Tea is an all-natural, easy way to wake you up in the morning. By adding some Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener, it definitely enhances your drinking experience. Typically, I’m a fan of chai or green tea in the morning.

Chai is a popular Indian drink, typically mixed with milk, ginger, and extra spices. I added a few packets of Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener just to have a sweeter taste. Chai is filled with antioxidants that prevent cancer and cardiovascular disease. It’s also a real help if you’re having digestive issues!

Green tea has quick preparation; just throw in a tea bag to a cup of water and wait a few minutes for tea to set in with the water. It’s filled with these great antioxidants and nutrients that fight off sickness; this is especially helpful if you’re living on a college campus, since you’re always interacting with so many people. Additionally, it’s been proven to prevent cancer and enhance brain function.  It’s a wonderful way to start your day!


Rice Pudding

This recipe is for those foodies with a sweet tooth! If you have a bit more time, rice pudding is a sweet treat on those early days. Inspired by a recipe posted on Pinterest, the original blogger dubbed this a desert so healthy, that you can eat it for breakfast! This is ideal for all those health nuts out door.

• 1 cup short grain brown rice
• 3 cups almond milk or milk of choice + 1 cup (divided)
• 1 teaspoon vanilla
• ½ teaspoon cinnamon
• 2-3 tablespoons of organic cane sugar or coconut palm sugar

It’s so easy to prepare, since you literally just have to throw it in the rice cooker for about 45 minutes, and let it do its thing! After it’s done cooking, put some on a small bowl and enjoy. Feel free to add any type of fruits once you’re done, as it just adds to the taste. Experience sweet in the best way through Zing™ Zero Calorie Stevia Sweetener!  For a FREE sample click here.
