Easy Healthy Breakfast Ideas
Healthy breakfasts can get boring but these easy healthy breakfast recipes will keep boredom at bay and your waistline in check. I’m a complete creature of habit when it comes to breakfast! I like something quick, easy, filling, nutritious and delicious, so for me it’s always egg whites, oats, nut butter, cinnamon, ginger, stevia and a little fruit but these healthy breakfast ideas have me wanting to change it up.
I tend to like hot breakfasts in Winter and cold ones in the Summer, like Fage 0% Greek yogurt, sprinkled with Kind cereal, bee pollen, local honey and fruit. When I travel, it’s normally oats and protein powder for convenience when cooking’s not an option. Or Starbucks Spinach, feta, egg white wrap to keep the calories down and macros balanced.
I decided to snoop around for some healthy breakfast inspiration from sweet to savory breakfast recipes that would still be nutritious and not take long to make. This is my round up of the 6 best healthy breakfast recipes I could find from all over the web based on their nutrition and taste. Oh and visual appeal!
These healthy breakfast ideas are so good, you may want to eat them for other meals, so don’t feel limited to just keeping them as breakfast foods.
1. Healthy Egg White and Vegetable Frittata by Rachel Cooks
My Mum used to cook Spanish omelettes and frittatas a lot growing up. It’s an easy way to use up vegetables and potatoes and create a cheap, easy and filling meal. Play around with the seasonings and vegetables to create something perfect for you and your families breakfast, lunch or dinner.
2. Healthy Breakfast | Savory Oatmeal with An Egg
A great balance of complex carbohydrates, healthy fats and protein.
Look at that gooey loveliness.
I normally make my eggs sweet, so this is a fun change.
You can’t go wrong with a Martha Stewart recipe! Feel free to add extra eggs/egg whites to fit your protein macros and omit the cheese if lactose intolerant.
3. Honey-Lime Quinoa Fruit Salad by The Recipe Critic
I don’t normally eat much fruit, I tend to opt for greens but in the morning I start with a small amount post cardio along with my breakfast. However, I’m always up for trying new things and this photo and healthy breakfast recipe by the Recipe Critic looked too beautiful to miss.
You don’t have to stick to the fruit listed in this recipe, choose fruit that’s in season, and that you fancy. The Quinoa adds texture and protein, among other benefits.
This is a low fat dish so why not top with some raw unsalted nuts or unsweetened shredded coconut. If you want to add protein, you can always top with some unsweetened Greek yogurt, which is a good source of protein.
4. Avocado Toast with Poached Egg by Glamour & Gains
I’m sure you’ve all seen avocado on toast popping up everywhere. The reason why is not only is it delicious and filling, but avocados are a complete food, high in essential fats.
What you might not know is that avocado toast, especially when done on brown bread is also high in dietary fiber. In fact, most of the grams of carbohydrates in an avocado come from dietary fiber. Plus it’s a quick and easy meal to make and easy to create variations of.
5. Warm Fruit Bowl by Nutrition Stripped
The mix of fiber and antioxidant rich fruits make for a nutritious meal. The beauty of this recipe is that you can make it your own and supercharge it by adding power house ingredients such as chia, hemp or flax seeds, cacao nibs, coconut shavings, raw nuts, bee pollen, etc. You can also use almond or coconut milk if you prefer, so get creative.
For a protein boost, mix in 1 scoop of protein powder (or however much you prefer) which will also thicken the mixture.
6. Matcha Mug cake By Nom Nom Paleo
Where are my hot breakfast fans? This healthy breakfast recipe is perfect for fall and winter and takes a minute to make. Let’s face it, who doesn’t like dessert for breakfast?! Only this is dessert without the guilt as well as paleo and gluten free.
Basically, you just mix everything in a mug and nuke it for 2 minutes, which means less washing up! Nom Nom Paleo shows you how:
