Breakfast has been dubbed “the most important meal of the day” for as long as I can remember, and I firmly believe this is true. It helps replenish your body with nutrients and energy after hours of not eating (due to sleep). What you eat for breakfast can help set you up for a day full of healthy eating. I know when I start my day with a healthy breakfast I’m much more likely to follow with a healthy lunch and a healthy dinner.
I know most people don’t have much time to cook elaborate meals in the morning, and that’s what this post is here for! Today I’m sharing 3 healthy breakfast ideas that will only take a few minutes to make.
1. LOADED GREEK YOGURT BOWL
This is such a simple breakfast that’s high in protein and will keep you full for a while! Fill a bowl with some nonfat Greek Yogurt, add some fresh fruit, top with your favorite granola, and enjoy! You could even add some chia seeds, coconut flakes, a little bit of honey, really anything your heart desires!
My go-to yogurt bowl:
- Fage nonfat Greek yogurt
- KIND Almond Butter Whole Grain Clusters granola
2. PROTEIN BERRY SMOOTHIE
Smoothies are such a great option because they’re easy to make and they’re portable which is perfect for the gal on the go. Grab a blender, toss in your favorite fruit, a banana, some vanilla protein powder, a splash of milk, and blend! You can really customize a smoothie to fit your tastes which is what I love about them.
My go-to smoothie:
- 1 banana
- A handful of frozen berries (I usually buy a bag of frozen mixed berries)
- 1 scoop plant-based vanilla protein powder
- Splash of almond or oat milk (depending on what we bought that week)
3. PEANUT BUTTER BANANA TOAST
We all know the popular avocado toast, but I personally hate avocados! Peanut butter and banana toast is a great option for a healthy toast if you don’t like avocados or just want a different flavor.
My go-to peanut butter banana toast:
- 2 slices of Dave’s Killer Bread (usually Power Seed or Good Seed)
- Smucker’s natural peanut butter
- 1 banana, sliced
- Sprinkle of chia seeds
- Sprinkle of sunflower seeds
These “recipes” are super simple and will help you get a nutrient-packed breakfast without having to spend too much time in the kitchen in the mornings. All three of these can also easily be put into containers and taken with you if you’re headed to work/school and can’t eat breakfast until you get there.
