A healthy breakfast can positively impact your entire day. If you start your mornings with the right nutrients, you’ll be absolutely amazed by how much energy you’ll enjoy through the day. A healthy breakfast will enlighten your mood, give you an energy boost and might help you become even more productive. Autumn is just around the corner and it’s time to get back to office (or not yet for some countries). So, start your Autumn with great energy from these five healthy breakfast ideas. You’ll honestly get hooked (they’re delish) 😋
1. Strawberry Oatmeal Bowl
You’ve came across this type of breakfast on Instagram, right? If you were wondering if you can do it yourself, trust me, you can. Actually, all you need for the perfect Oatmeal Bowl is: oats and your favourite toppings. For instance, you can choose yogurt or coconut milk (I love to use the latter), different fruits (fresh or dried), nuts (especially almonds) or peanut butter. It’s literally up to you! Just ensure you keep the balance right between the nuts and fruits – nuts have loads of calories and fruits have loads of sugar.
Oatmeal Bowls used to be my go to when I’d have to be in the office by 9am in London. I tend to go for them now too, if you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably watched my morning stories and know what I’m talking about.
2. Breakfast Tacos, anyone?
Have you ever tried tacos for breakfast? 😉 This is the type of dish that requires you to prepare it in the evening and store it in the fridge until the next morning. It takes a little bit of organisational skill on your side, but it’s a delicious healthy breakfast option. The filling is quite simple to make actually: steam some veggies, cook the meat in a separate pan and bring them together.
If you’re feeling like you need an extra kick, spend an extra 15 minutes and prepare a nice dip – avocado, cheese, salsa or cilantro go quite well with tacos. It’s an even healthier alternative than oats because you’ll get the right nutrients when you start your day and you won’t feel the need to snack in between meals.
Bruschetta is easy and quite fast to make. First, you’ll have to toast a few slices of grain bread. Then, you can start playing with your favourite toppings. You can start with fresh cream cheese, then you can add raw veggies all over. I like to mix green salad, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, avocado and sweet paprika. My favourite one is Mozzarella & Cherry Tomatoes and basil on top. Yummy!
4. Avocado Toast & Eggs
Avo Toast & Eggs is so delicious! You can quickly prepare this in the morning by toasting a slice of grain bread and poaching two eggs. Then, you have to slice your avocado and start putting the dish together. I like to eat this in the morning because beside the proteins they have, eggs are a good source of nutrients such as vitamin D.
5. Blueberry Smoothie
Smoothies are a great source of vitamins and a great option for breakfast. They’ll energise you in seconds. And this recipe is incredibly easy. All you have to do is blend 250g of blueberries, a teaspoon of peanut butter, soy milk and honey all together. It’s super fast and you can even take it on your commute. Add a rice cake to it as well for a small source of carbs, so you won’t feel super hungry after an hour.
All things considered, it’s amazing to start your day with a healthy breakfast. It will set the tone for the day. Slide in my Instagram DM’s (@notagirlygal) and let me know which is your favourite healthy breakfast recipe and why? Can’t wait to hear all of your answers 🙂
