You’ve likely heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, right? Well, that’s not just an old wives’ tale. Breakfast kickstarts your metabolism, and the proper breakfast will energize you and help you manage cravings throughout the day. Not to mention, this is a great opportunity for you to sneak in a big chunk of your recommended daily fruit, calcium, and fibre intake!
The problem is that, with many of us leading busy lives, breakfast is quickly pushed to the bottom of the to-do list. So here are some healthy breakfast ideas that will make it easier for you to get breakfast back up to that important number one spot, every day, with very little effort.
Healthy Breakfast Ideas in 5 Minutes (or less!)
1. Overnight Oats
Overnights Oats are the ultimate quick, easy, and healthy breakfast idea for busy adults and kids! You’ll combine raw oats with a milk of your choice and just let them sit in the fridge overnight, ready for the morning. This is a simple and quick base that you can jazz up in so many different ways: fruit, seeds, nuts, and even chocolate. What’s not to love?
Smoothies are just as quick to make and delicious to consume as overnight oats. Even better, if you google “smoothie recipes” you’ll be met with a plethora of excellent, healthy smoothie options, so you’ll never get bored testing out new recipes.
3. Banana Muffins
Banana Muffins are made in batches, so you can knock out a few for the week on a Sunday afternoon and then just grab-and-go each day. You can start by trying this wonderful, healthy muffin recipe from Broma Bakery.
Granola on supermarket shelves is often loaded with extra sugar, so us health-nuts tend to steer clear. But making homemade, healthy granola in batches ahead of time is so easy. All you have to do in the morning is scoop a few spoonfuls into a bowl with your preferred milk or yogurt to make for a quick and healthy start to your day.
5. Scrambled Eggs
Scrambled Eggs is a great option for those with less of a sweet-tooth in the morning hours. Scrambled eggs might seem time-consuming at first, but once you’ve mastered the art of the perfect scramble you can knock it together and be out the door in five minutes. Even better, you can wrap your scramble up in a tortilla with some smoked salmon, rocket, and avocado for a healthy breakfast to go!
So you see, breakfast doesn’t need to be boring, time-consuming, or a chore. It’s so easy to enjoy any of these quick, healthy breakfast ideas with little to no effort at all. Now, let’s get cooking!
