A vast amount of research has shown that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. With a variety of breakfast options that are easy to make and eat while on the go, there is no excuse as to why you are skipping breakfast. Aside from ensuring that you eat breakfast every day, it’s important to realize that breakfast shouldn’t include foods that are high in fat or sugar. If you eat a healthy and nutrient dense meal in the morning, then you will feel fuller and more energized. In order to give you an idea of what you can eat for breakfast, here are a few awesome breakfast ideas.
1.) Berry Smoothie
Smoothies are the best breakfast options for people who want something easy to make that they can take with them while they drive to work or school. One of the most delicious smoothies is a berry smoothie that is made of a banana, a mixture of berries, Greek yogurt, and a small amount of milk. Simply blend the mixture together, and you have the perfect smoothie.
2.) Fruit Quinoa
Quinoa doesn’t have to be a food that is only eaten for lunch and dinner. If you have an extra cup of quinoa, mix it with a variety of fruit to create a mixture that is similar to a fruit salad. You can even add a little bit of honey to make it a tad sweeter. The quinoa will add an element of density to the fruit and provide you with more nutrients.
3.) Avocado Egg Toast
This has become one the most popular breakfast options among teenagers and social media influencers, and we completely understand why. Avocado is delicious, and you can create a breakfast dish by simply spreading it on a piece of toast and placing a sunny-side up egg on the top of it.
4.) PB&J on a Waffle
While a peanut butter and jelly sandwich is typically eaten for lunch, you can justify eating it for breakfast by swapping bread for two waffles. Eat a few strawberries with your waffle PB&J for some added nutrients.
5.) Protein Breakfast Burrito
Breakfast time is the perfect opportunity to eat a large amount of protein. While eating the leftover half of your Chipotle burrito may seem like a good idea because it’s full of protein, opt for creating your own breakfast burrito. A quick and delicious protein breakfast burrito is full of eggs and black beans. Simply smear a bit of sweet potato on a tortilla wrap and add a combination of eggs and black beans. You can tweak this recipe to your taste by adding any other vegetables and spices to the burrito.
6.) Granola Apple Bites
This is the perfect breakfast option for people who like to eat sweet things for breakfast. Simply cut an apple into wedge shapes, then spread a spoonful of peanut butter on each of the wedges. Afterwards, place a little bit of granola on top of the peanut butter, followed by a little bit of melted chocolate. You can even place these granola apple bites in plastic wrap and eat them as a snack throughout your day.
7.) Quinoa Muffins
By now it should be evident that quinoa is a perfect breakfast staple. Simply add quinoa into your favorite muffin mixture and bake them until they are golden. Once they have cooled, you can sprinkle extra quinoa on the top, along with any other flavoring. Muffins are great for breakfast because you can bake a bunch at once, which should last you a few days, and they are easy to take along with you.
8.) Microwave Breakfast Quiche
Modern cooking is all about efficiency, so it shouldn’t surprise you that there is an easier way to make quiche. Simply place some spinach in the bottom of a mug and top it with water. Place the mug in the microwave on high power for approximately one minute. Then, drain the water and add the rest of your ingredients. You should have an egg, milk, and cheese. The other ingredients can be up to you, as they can be tailored to your taste. Mix all of your ingredients together until you have a comprehensive mixture, then microwave for approximately four minutes on high speed. Let your quiche cool down, then enjoy!
