We all have heard the mantra – “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day”.
Breakfast gives us the energy we need to push through the day. And if the first meal of the day is boring, we can’t expect much from the rest of the day.
Everyone is in a rush in the morning, from office commutes to school drop-offs to random morning errands; weekday mornings are super busy.
So how about I suggest you with ideas that are quick and easy to whip up in the morning but are healthy.
8 Quick and Healthy Breakfast Ideas
#1. Avocado and Egg Toast
If you already haven’t tried this combination, I suggest you try it now. Avocado and egg toast is a super healthy protein-packed breakfast. Avocado is a superfood which means it is rich in nutrients.
Creamy avocado spread onto a well-toasted bread in itself is inviting. And the bonus is that you can pile your eggs the way you like – fried, poached, scrambled or boiled.
To top it, just sprinkle some salt and pepper.
What’s a better way to kickstart your morning? These oh-so-delicious, refreshing, and fruity smoothies.
You can never get bored with these. Keep creating smoothies with different combinations of fruits, vegetables and superfoods like hemp seeds, nut butter, chia seeds, etc., according to the season or your mood.
It can be a little time consuming to prepare these when you are in a rush. So here’s what you can do: make your smoothie a night before and store it in the refrigerator. This way, the next morning, you can still get your boost of nutrients.
Oats make for a healthful breakfast that is loaded with fibres, antioxidants, and vitamins.
Customize your oatmeals according to your taste, mood and diet plan every day. Just keep changing the toppings like fruits, dried fruits, chia seeds, hemp seeds, etc. to keep things interesting.
You can change the way you prepare your oats. You can make baked oatmeals, oat parfaits, porridges, or granola bars.
Oatmeals make for an easy dish personalized according to your taste.
#4. Pancakes and Waffles
Unbelievably pillowy pancakes will surely put a smile on your face. Decadent waffles drizzled with chocolate syrup or maple syrup will satiate your soul.
While pancakes and waffles are considered weekend favourites, no one will mind eating them on a weekday as well.
Make an extra bunch of pancakes or waffles on your weekend and freeze them for busy mornings.
When you are ready to eat, just pop them in a toaster or microwave, drizzle some syrup or jam, and your breakfast is ready!
#5. Breakfast Burrito
Power your day with this make-ahead wrap. Prepare these burritos on weekends and reheat them on a hectic morning.
With fluffy scrambled eggs, tasty black beans, sweet corn niblets, fresh cilantro, cheesy cheddar cheese and hot red onions, these wholesome breakfast burritos are anything but boring.
Both adults and children will love this dish packed with flavours!
This list is incomplete without mentioning granola bars and balls. Most of us have granola bars at our homes for the days when we are in a hurry.
Making granola bars is simple, so you might want to switch the packaged ones with the ones you make at home. Make your granola bars with nutritious ingredients which are good for you.
These bars and balls can be refrigerated, so prepare a bunch of them for those tight-scheduled mornings.
Muffins are an all-time favourite. Earn some brownie points from kids and adults for baking scrumptious muffins.
For a quick, ready to eat breakfast try baking a handful of muffins beforehand.
To make your muffins healthier, use whole grain flour, add fruit mix-ins, use natural sweeteners like maple syrup whenever possible.
#8. Breakfast Bowl
A breakfast bowl is a new, out of the box breakfast idea. You will find inspiration all over the internet. You get as creative as you want with these bowls.
You can make both sweet and savoury bowls to prefer your taste. It’s time to change your boring cereal breakfast bowls with these colourful, nutritious breakfast bowls.
You can also add leftover vegetables from the previous night to these bowls.
