Let’s talk breakfast! How you fuel your body in the morning sets the tone for your entire day, so it’s important to eat the best nutritious breakfast possible. But when you’re a busy girlboss, you don’t always have time to cook a meal before running out the door. Luckily, we’ve got some easy, healthy breakfast ideas you can add to your daily menu.
Each of these recipes is packed with nutrients, protein and healthy ingredients to jumpstart your metabolism and give you an energy boost for the day ahead. Best of all, they’re super simple and easy to customize to your personal tastes. We’re fans of meal prepping, so many of these recipes you can prepare the night before.
Get ready to rise and greet the day with these four easy, healthy breakfast ideas:
1. Green Smoothie
No healthy breakfast blog would be complete without mentioning green smoothies! When prepared fresh at home, a green smoothie is one of the best nutritious breakfast options available. They’re easy, delicious and a perfect delivery system for supplements like protein powder and collagen.
There are tons of great green smoothie recipes, and all make great templates for experimentation and customization. For one interpretation of a classic green smoothie, you’ll need the following ingredients:
- 1 cup baby spinach
- 1 cup dairy milk or nut milk of your choice
- Half a banana
- 1/2 cup frozen mango or pineapple
- 2 tbsp peanut or almond butter (optional)
You can also experiment with different fruit combinations and adding protein powder, chia seeds, flax seeds or other special ingredients. After you’ve added everything to the blender, simply pulse until smooth and enjoy.
2. Overnight Oats
No time to cook in the morning? Overnight oats are an excellent choice when you’re craving a filling, heart-healthy breakfast on the go – and there are so many great recipes to play around with. This is one of our favorite easy, healthy breakfast ideas that you can prepare the night before and enjoy the next morning.
Your shopping list for overnight oats includes:
- 1/2 cup dairy milk or nut milk of your choice
- 1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
- 1/4 cup berries or fruit of your choice
- 1/4 cup yogurt (optional)
- 1 tsp cinnamon (optional)
- 2 tbsp chopped almonds or nuts of your choice
Making overnight oats is a breeze. Just add all the ingredients to your favorite to-go container (we like using mason jars), stir well and refrigerate overnight. The oats will absorb the liquid and soften overnight, resulting in a delicious no-cook oatmeal that’s also one of the best nutritious breakfasts you can eat.
3. Veggie Egg Muffins
Eggs are a breakfast staple, and this recipe is one of our favorite easy, healthy breakfast ideas. We like to prepare a batch of these egg muffins on Sunday night and freeze them for the week ahead. Like our smoothie recipe, you can also customize your egg muffin recipe to suit your personal food preferences.
Make these fabulous egg muffins with the following ingredients:
- 12 large eggs
- 2 tbsp finely chopped white or yellow onion
- 1/4 cup fresh spinach, finely chopped
- 1/4 cup mushrooms, sliced
- 1/4 cup red, green or orange bell pepper, diced
- 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese (optional)
First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and prep your muffin tin with oil, butter or a nonstick cooking spray. Whisk the eggs and onions together in a large bowl and pour the mixture into each muffin cup, about halfway up. Then add an even portion of veggies to each cup, bake for 20 minutes and enjoy! This recipe will make 12 muffins.
4. Avocado Toast
There’s a reason avocado toast is often in the Instagram spotlight, but you don’t have to pay $12 to enjoy this brunch favorite. This ranks among the best nutritious breakfasts because avocado is packed with “good” fat. It’s a superfood that keeps you feeling full, can lower cholesterol and contributes to healthy skin and hair.
Our favorite avocado toast recipe from GimmeDelicious calls for these items:
- 1 avocado, peeled and seeded
- 2 tbsp chopped cilantro
- The juice of half a lime
- Salt, pepper and red pepper flakes to taste
- 2 slices whole grain bread or bread of your choice
- 2 fried or poached eggs (optional)
In a small bowl, mash the avocado together with the cilantro, lime juice, and seasonings. Toast the bread until golden brown, spread half the avocado mixture on each slice, and add optional eggs. Bon appetit!
