Crazy mornings call for fast breakfast solutions—and no, we don’t mean a pit stop at the golden arches. This microwaved meal-in-a-mug is good enough to hold you until your next meal and won’t result in greasy wrappers on the floor of your car. Pair with a protein shake or fruit smoothie for a complete-but-quick breakfast.
