Do you find yourself rushing out the door without breakfast just because you don't have the time to make it? Nobody should have to do without breakfast — or pay a fortune to eat out every morning. Why not set yourself up a quick-serve breakfast nook? With several quick-serve breakfast items in one place, it will take you five minutes or less to grab your breakfast and go. Here are five tips for doing so.
1. Buy a Keurig
Brewing coffee takes a long time when you're in a hurry! Instead of a classic coffee pot, buy yourself a Keurig coffee maker. They make one cup of coffee at a time, and it only takes a few seconds to brew a cup. Stock up on different K-cups, which are the coffee pods that go into the Keurig coffee maker. They come in coffee, tea, and even hot chocolate varieties so that you can choose your drink every morning. Set the K-cups in a basket next to the coffee maker, and pre-fill the coffee maker with water so that it's all ready for you in the morning. You can even buy single-serve packets of sugar and shelf-stable creamer so that you don't have to go to the fridge.
2. Purchase a Toaster and Bagels
Bagels are great for eating on-the-go because you can hold them in one hand as you eat them. Plus, they toast in about the time it takes you to make a cup of Keurig coffee, so your coffee and bagel come together at the same time. Buy a small toaster that has a bagel setting for best results. Put your bagels on your breakfast nook table, ready to go. You can also fill a basket with single-serving packets of butter and jam to top your bagel in a hurry.
3. Fill a Fruit Basket
A piece of fruit adds vitamins and fiber to your breakfast meal. Fill a basket with assorted fruit that you can just grab and take with you. Apples, bananas, pears, and nectarines all work well. Stay away from oranges. They're delicious, but they take a long time to peel. Save them for the mornings when you can sleep in and take your time at breakfast.
4. Set Up a Trash Bin
Place a little trash bin in your breakfast nook. This way, you can quickly dispose of used K-cups, jam packets, and more without having to waste time walking to the main trash can. For more information on where to buy k cups, contact a coffee specialist today.
