10 Easy to Prepare Healthy Breakfast Ideas

Healthy Breakfast

Written by Jessica Mathews

You have five minutes before you need to head out the door to make it to work on time, and haven’t eaten anything for breakfast. Do you skip breakfast altogether, visit a drive-thru, or stop by the vending machine in your company’s break room? If you answered yes to any of these options, then it’s time for change.

I would like share some of my favorite healthy breakfast ideas, which are not only tasty and nutritious enough to pep up your whole day, but also made using commonly-available ingredients to make your work simple and quick. Care has been taken to use low-fat ingredients and to avoid processed and refined food products.

Start your day off right with these energizing, healthy breakfast ideas:

Healthy Breakfast - cereal

  1. High-Fiber Cereal and Fruit.

That old fast breakfast standby, cereal, doesn’t take long to eat. Make your bowlful a healthy breakfast by choosing a cold cereal that has at least 3 grams of fiber per serving. You can make your cereal “to go” by mixing it into a container with non-fat yogurt rather than milk. Top your cereal with berries or banana slices to get some fruit in your morning meal.

healthy breakfast -cantaloupe

  1. Yogurt-Filled Cantaloupe.

Greek yogurt is one of the best ways to enjoy plenty of protein without any eggs or meat. Instead of topping off your morning bowl of yogurt with sugary granola, serve it up in a fresh cantaloupe bowl that kicks out carbs. Be sure to add your favorite fresh berries to the mix for extra color and flavor.

healthy breakfast -tomato toast

  1. Tomato Toast with Macadamia Ricotta. 

Here’s a healthier take on a classic breakfast sandwich: Take 2 slices of a hearty whole-grain bread, spread each bread slice with 1 tablespoon of macadamia ricotta cheese, and sprinkle with basil or shiso, kosher salt, and fresh cracked pepper to taste. Add 1-2 hearty slices of fresh heirloom tomatoes (blotted with paper towel to remove excess liquid) and enjoy.

healthy breakfast -egg muffin

  1. Savory egg muffins.

You will need your muffin tin for this egg-cellent breakfast. Every serving will supply you with a whopping 16 grams of protein and just 150 calories. If you are vegetarian, skip the ham and double the veggies.

  1. Quinoa Bites.

When your family needs a break from eating eggs, quinoa bites are just the solution. Like oatmeal, quinoa leaves you feeling full and satisfied. Plus, it’s packed with some protein to start your morning off right. Although you can mix quinoa with your egg muffin mixtures for a savory breakfast, the sweeter option is mixing apples and bananas.

healthy breakfast -granola bars

  1. Granola Bars. 

On your way out the door, grab that homemade Granola bar, which is packed with a filling combo of old-fashioned rolled oats, sunflower seeds and wheat germ. Toss in dark brown sugar and your favorite dried fruit to add a hint of sweetness to your morning commute.

healthy breakfast- baked pepper

  1. Baked Breakfast Peppers.

Instead of adding peppers to an omelette, why not add the omelette into the pepper? This breakfast bake is chock-full of turkey, bacon, leafy spinach and cheese all stuffed into a roasted red pepper for a dish you can truly eat every part of. Top with avocado, salsa or hot sauce for even more flavor!

healthy breakfast -oats

  1. Overnight Oats.

Overnight oats are beautiful because they’re delicious, healthy and stupid easy to prepare. If you stick to just a few fruits and keep off sugary add ins like chocolate chips or jelly, this will make for a fantastic healthy breakfast option.

healthy breakfast -feta omelette

  1. Broccoli & Feta Omelette and Toast. 

This quick breakfast recipe, which takes just 15 minutes start to finish, packs a one-two punch that will leave you feeling satisfied yet energized. The broccoli gives filling fiber (and just 30 calories per serving), while the protein loaded eggs curb your appetite and help to stave off those late-morning cravings.

healthy breakfast -quinoa porridge

  1. Quinoa Porridge.

Here you have wheat and dairy free breakfast; porridge-thick, rich and delish for the cold mornings. If you have nut allergies substitute soy milk or regular cow milk for the almond. Add sugar to taste or substitute it with black strap molasses or agave syrup (use half as much). Plus, this recipe can easily be doubled.

A healthy breakfast is a great way to start off your day, it gives your body the nutrients it needs to get your metabolism working for the day. Try these easy breakfast ideas today and start feeling great!
