I do it, you do it, everyone does it! There are some crappy mornings (where it’s everything is going wrong) and all you eat is either cereal or a crappy cereal bar on your way to work. I’m not saying that a gourmet breakfast should be your everyday goal but it doesn’t mean that you will settle for a quick, sugar-based snack that will leave you both sad and hungry just an hour later.
There are so many healthy breakfast ideas that require minimum effort when put into practice. If you plan your time right, you can have everything, from easy (but yummy) quinoa breakfast bowls to healthy smoothie recipes you can make in a few minutes. Did I mention the overnight oats recipe? How had you not thought of all these recipes already?!
These healthy breakfast recipes will satisfy your breakfast food cravings all day long.
Do you love superfoods as much as I do?
Try spreading nut butter on a toast with 1/2 a banana (sliced) and a sprinkle of chia seeds.
It’s packed with minerals and vitamins and it contains about six times more calcium than milk!
To add more to the equation it’s absolutely delicious and gives you a fantastic energy boost for heading out the house to tackle the day ahead.
Sometimes simple is better! A delicious smoothie for your morning rush.
You can blend frozen fruit such as, berries and banana with Greek yogurt and a liquid of your choice (coconut water, milk or juice—I prefer coconut water). Freeze the fruits overnight and defrost throughout the day to blend up in the morning.
Here’s a healthier substitute for classic breakfast cereals. Cook quinoa in milk (cow, almond or soy) and add some fruit makes.
It’s high in protein and essential amino acids like lysine, which is essential for tissue growth and repair. Put all the ingredients into a pot and bring to a boil. Then simmer, stir, top with your favourite add-ons, and voila!
Who doesn’t love avocado toast with eggs?
Top two lightly toasted slices of whole-grain bread with smashed avocado and layer on two eggs for a healthy dose of protein, and here you go!
Stack ’em in a tupperware container for easy transport or cook the yolks a bit more and make the whole thing into a sandwich.
It travels surprisingly well and will make your work colleagues green with envy when they open up their bland lunch boxes.
Craving dessert for breakfast?
Here’s a healthy way to have chocolate for breakfast.
A quinoa bowl provides you a solid protein base, and you can add a few servings of fruit (banana and berries).
