Your morning meal sets the stage for your entire day, so having some healthy breakfast ideas means starting out strong and staying healthy and full until lunchtime.
The right balance of vitamins and minerals fuel your body and your brain so that you can get through the morning in a productive and awake feeling way. But not everything makes a healthy breakfast.
Check out some of these ideas to get every day off on the right foot.
Smoothies are a light breakfast that meets several needs.
They are fast and easy to make and you can take them on the go. At the same time, done right, a smoothie is a filling and nutritious breakfast you’ll love. Combine fresh or frozen fruit with coconut water, milk or 100% juice in a blender with a touch of oats or flaxseed and blend until smooth.
Toast on its own offers up some carbs but top it with something and you can easily have one of the best quick breakfast ideas. This one is great for kids too.
Start with some toasted 100% whole grain bread, then top it with cheese, vegetables, cottage cheese, fruit or nut butter for a tasty and healthy morning meal. Try peanut butter with bananas, ricotta cheese with tomatoes, avocado and egg or cottage cheese and diced fruit.
Imagine putting your breakfast in the fridge before bed and having it ready and waiting when you get up the next morning. When it comes to breakfast ideas, this one can’t be beaten.
Try adding oats to a container, covering it with a mixture of Greek yogurt and milk and adding some sliced berries. Or combine chia seeds with yogurt and fruit for a tasty and healthy breakfast.
Maybe you’ve heard about make ahead meals; they’re all the rage right now. You can prepare big batches of healthy and sustaining breakfast meals and they simply heat and eat in the morning.
Fill a muffin tin with scrambled eggs, then add in diced veggies, meat, and cheese. Cook and freeze. Then simply toss a couple in the microwave when you get up.
This also works for breakfast sandwiches, breakfast burritos, and breakfast tacos.
Prefer something sweet for breakfast? You can enjoy pancakes, French toast, and waffles in a healthy way.
Choose the wholegrain versions and top them with nut butter and fruit rather than syrup and whipped cream. You can even whip up a big batch on the weekend, freeze them and enjoy all week long by warming them up when you get up in the morning. Try breakfast catering if you still need a bit of help.
