The first week of school is always crazy. Amidst the mess of finding all of your classes, getting materials, and running into people you haven't seen all summer, sometimes you forget that you need to eat, too. These no-hassle breakfast recipes will set you up for a successful first couple of weeks at school.

This quick recipe will give you energy to start the day. Peanut butter is a great source of protein, while bananas and whole wheat toast are great sources of carbohydrates.

This is an easy recipe that you can prepare the night before in just five minutes. Health benefits of Chia seeds include their ability to make you feel fuller faster, reduce blood pressure, and prevent diabetes. I don’t know about you, but I need some Chia seeds in my life.

This delicious toast is as simple as can be. Take your toast, spread on some avocado, squeeze some lemon juice, sprinkle some salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes, and take a bite. Add a sunny side up egg on top, if you’re feeling frisky.

Provided you have a blender, starting your day off with a fruit smoothie is always a good idea. This blended drink will fill you with the nutrients you need to recover from last night, whether you had a crazy night out or a studious one in the library.     

There’s no place like college, and to be a student can be a lot to handle (as amazing as it is). These recipes will get you excited to wake up and conquer the day ahead. The power of peanut butter is real, my friend.
