Whether you're a kid or a mom, a healthy start to the day helps you get through the morning with energy and focus. Cory's a single mom to eight-year-old Cruise, but with both of them running out the door to work and school, mornings are a mad dash. "If I had the time, I would make her a proper breakfast," says Cory. "But I'm a working mom. I just don't have time in the morning." It's a problem most of share. Luckily, Real-Life Makeover is here to take the mayhem out of your mornings.

#1 EGG AVOCADO WRAP
Even our most ambitious breakfast is done in minutes. Whisk two eggs in a small bowl, and heat two pans over moderate heat. Put a little oil into one pan, and pour in scrambled eggs. Place a whole wheat tortilla in the other pan. While egg and tortilla are cooking, slice 1/4 avocado (one of my favorites). When the edges of the egg set, flip the eggs like a pancake. Then flip the tortilla. Remove the tortilla to a plate, top it with the egg pancake, and scatter avocado slices on top. Roll up, and cut in two for a portable breakfast. Pair with fruit and we're talking breakfast perfection. Yum!
#2 PEANUT BUTTER AND BANANA SANDWICHES
Talk about a super easy, practically instant kid crowd pleaser. Make sandwiches with whole grain bread, all-natural peanut butter, and banana slices. No need to mess with a classic! (And you can even make this one the night before.)
#3 PEACH SMOOTHIE
For a sweet breakfast treat that serves up protein and fruit (and is great paired with that peanut butter banana sandwich), blend together peaches, milk, yogurt and ice. Add a straw to sip in the car if you're in a super rush.
The real test is Cruise. Will this eight-year-old like these super fast, healthy breakfasts? The proof is in that smile. Looks like we passed the Cruise taste test with flying colors!
