12 Quick and Easy Drinks to Start the Day

Healthful, energy-boosting options to make at home, buy, or pick up on the go

Maryse Chevriere

Breakfast is important — moms have said it from the beginning, doctors can’t stress it enough, and health-conscious friends love to remind us of it.

But no matter how many times or ways it's said — and how true it is — if you’re not a breakfast person, the fact of the matter is that it can be tough to make time for a meal at the start of the day. Which is why, for this particular group of people, the quickest and easiest options are the most desirable.

Fortunately, for those of us that prefer breakfast in a to-go cup, there are plenty of good, healthy drinks that can be made ahead or in the morning, or even picked up from the local supermarket — things like filling, energy-boosting smoothies and vitamin-rich herbal teas. And if all else fails, and the drive-thru route is the only solution, there are still good options available, ranging from fresh fruit juices to low-calorie coffee drinks.

Read on to check out recipes, supermarket finds, and on-the-go drinks perfect for breaking your bad breakfast habit.


12 Quick and Nourishing Meals to Make on a Sick Day

Anytime I’m sick (or even on the verge of being sick), two things are certain: My energy and inspiration to cook are pretty low. Even when my meals are planned out for the week, I’m happy to abandon my plans for pork chops or a casserole for another night.

But don’t forget about things like creamy orzo or polenta, eggs, and buttered noodles, which all hit the spot when you feel under the weather and don’t take a whole lot of effort to pull off.

With that in mind, this is the roster of meals I turn to again and again. From lemony spinach tortellini soup to brown butter noodles, these 12 quick and nourishing recipes are sure to hit the spot when you’re sick.
