Breakfast cereal is an easy go-to option for its quick and easy preparation, but there are better options that are super-healthy and time efficient too!
These are mini omelets that are baked in a muffin tray that you can eat hot or cold, depending on your mood. They’re EASY to prep for a whole week, and you can add in vegetables, cheese, or meats. Simply mix up eggs with some chopped vegetables, a pinch of salt and pepper and pop in the oven for 15-20 minutes.
This only takes a few minutes in the skillet to cook and is great for using leftovers. Greens, beans, roasted potatoes, leftover meat, anything you’ve got will work. Just mix up eggs + anything else you’d like to add, cook in a skillet, and wrap in a tortilla!
Biscuits or Muffins
These are great because you can add in all sorts of things to make them even more healthy and tasty. Some of the things I like to add in are nuts, seeds, and fruits like blueberries into the mix and replace sugar with honey, banana or maple syrup.
Muesli is perfect for the summertime when it’s too hot for things like a hot bowl of oatmeal. Raw oats, fruit, and nuts are very filling and can be soaked overnight to make a cold breakfast that’s ready to help you beat the heat of the summer’s day.
Oatmeal’s a great breakfast that can be changed up easily just by adding a different topping to it. Some tasty toppings to try are natural yogurt, honey, fruit, crushed nuts, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, nut butters, and pepitas. YUM!
Smoothies are very healthy for you, but it can be tricky to make sure they fill you up until your next meal. Try adding some dry oats, nut butters, or avocado for more protein and belly filling power!
If you tolerate dairy well, plain or Greek (my personal fave) yogurt with fresh fruits added in can be tasty and healthy for your whole body. You can also try adding mixed nuts, honey to sweeten, fresh fruits and muesli. This way you get a healthy breakfast, and it’s super-fast.
You need to be very careful with these. Some of these bars say they are healthy when they are really packed full of sugar + artificial ingredients. Try making your own for the week ahead, and instead of adding sugar, try adding some nuts, oats, or dried fruit. Those ingredients will guarantee it tastes great and will be healthy for you.
Eggs and Toast Soldiers
These are best with soft boiled or poached eggs and whole wheat toast. They are a quick, healthy meal that’s as easy + tasty as pouring a bowl of cereal. You could even try using steamed asparagus or green beans instead as dippers.
Try swapping out your not-so-healthy breakfast cereal with some newfound favorite healthy breakfast. Your morning will be happier, healthier and your body will thank you for it.
There’s no reason to skip the most important meal of the day. Whether you are in a rush or have plenty of time to cook up a hearty meal, you’ve got plenty of healthy options to choose from that will make sure you stay focused for the day.
After all, a healthy breakfast means a good day, right?
