Do healthy breakfasts mean boring breakfasts?
I know it’s challenging to consistently come up with super healthy breakfast ideas, and I understand how terribly easy it is to just pour milk over your cereal or slap a piece of scrambled egg over a sad-looking slice of wheat bread… but your morning meal not only gives you the energy to sustain the entire day, it also boosts your mood before you go on with your activities. Yes, breakfasts are important.
Say goodbye to boring breakfasts because we prepared a list of 14 super healthy breakfast ideas especially for you
Who knew there were so many ways to enjoy avocado toast? We certainly didn’t, so we’ll definitely be trying a few of these next time breakfast rolls around (or next time avocados are on special!). Avocados are a great way to start the day because they’re packed full of healthy fats, which are just the energy boost you need!
If you’ve never made overnight oats before, you are absolutely missing out! This breakfast isn’t just super creamy and delicious, but also uber flexible and easy. You can literally throw together breakfast for the entire week all at once, or just prep them in 2 minutes the night before. So simple!
Tomatoes are just a fantastic and under-utilised fruit (yep not a veggie) that we think should feature in more healthy breakfasts. This particular recipe is really simple but healthy, bringing together the goodness of tomato, egg and greens with a hint of cheese. Perfect!
For that who find they aren’t satisfied after a liquid breakfast, making a smoothie bowl instead of beverage might help. Smoothie bowls, like this healthy Banana Berry Smoothie Bowl, are intended to be thicker than your average smoothie, and with crunchy extras sprinkled on top. Yum!
When you’re strapped for time at breakfast and you think you can just skip it, don’t! Instead, whip up a batch of these Blueberry Oatmeal Breakfast Bars at the start of the week to see you through. They’re packed full of goodness, and they’re both vegan and gluten free!
Not all of these breakfasts are fast, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t worth it. A Baked Stuffed Sweet Potato is a great way to start your morning and will give you the energy you need to run almost all day. Filled with eggs and other breakfast-time goodies, these are a definite winner.
You might think zoodles, or zucchini noodles, are a dinner meal you absolutely have to try this breakfast recipe that features them. Zucchini and egg? Always a good idea in our eyes, and super healthy as well. You can’t go wrong with this one!
Two things we want to say about this. First, we absolutely love poached eggs. Seriously, they’re the best. Second, salad for breakfast? We LOVE it. Light and packed with lots of naturally delicious and healthy flavours sounds like our idea of a great start to the day, and paired with the egg means we’ll be sorted!
French toast is fantastic, but we admit the ‘not-so-healthy’ aspects of it stop us from enjoying it on a regular basis. However, this incredible french toast recipe is a healthy alternative that we can really get behind. Oh, and there are strawberries, which is just the best thing ever.
Not everyone loves quinoa because of its hipster association, but we have to admit that we are smitten with this little grain. It’s fantastic for soaking up flavours, but never goes mushy and pairs well with so many things. If you’ve only ever had it for dinner, do yourself a favour and try it for breakfast!
I don’t think there’s anything boring about this smoothie. The colour alone makes me happy!
You can’t go wrong (and you can’t be late) with this quick and easy quesadilla recipe. The kids will love this for sure and the onions add more to the taste! You won’t hear anyone complain – promise!
This one is something you’ll love whether or not you’re vegan. It’s full of protein, flavourful, easy to make and extremely delicious!
