5 Easy Breakfast Ideas (That Are Actually Healthy!)

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  I truly, actually believe that.

I look forward to breakfast more than any other meal.

But let’s face it, sometimes there is just NO TIME in the morning rush of getting kids ready for school, getting ready for work and piling everyone into the car.

So, on the days that I don’t reach for my 2-minute superfoods shake, I resort to these standbys:

1) Avocado Toast

Avocado toast is all the rage right now. And why shouldn’t it be? Crack open an avo, spread it on some toast, add some flair with some extra veggies or seasonings and you are good to go. Here are some of my fave avo toast recipes:

Caprese Avocado Toast

Avocado, Bacon and Tomato Toast

Spicy Avocado Toast with Egg

2) Eggs

I love an egg. Like, LOVE and egg. And the runnier the better. The best thing about eggs is that they take, like, NO TIME to cook. Here are my go to early morning easy eggs:

Scrambled Eggs with Pan-Roasted Mushrooms

Spinach, Mushroom & Goat Cheese Breakfast Skillet

Poached Egg on Toast with Chipotle Mayo, Bacon & Avocado

3) Steel Cut Oats

I’ve said it before and I will say it again; Steel Cut Oats are the unsung hero of the breakfast world. Packed full of nutrients, fibre and protein, they offer a great base for breakfast desert. Plus, you can make a big batch at the beginning of the week and dine on leftovers every morning. Here are my favourite ways to dress up steel-cut oats:

Slow Cooker Apple Pie Steel Cut Oats

Freezer Steel Cut Oats

Creamy Steel Cut Oats with Caramelized Bananas

4) Yogurt Parfait

Back when I was eating dairy, greek yogurt was my jam; Creamy, filling and with a nice little kick of protein. Plus, so easy to make breakfast desert. A parfait may sound time consuming, but actually, it’s super easy.

Vanilla Maple Yogurt Parfait

Peanut Butter & Banana Greek Yogurt

Healthy Granola Yogurt Parfait

5) Mini quiche

As I said, I love an egg, and it I love it in any form. Mini quiches are seriously my fave. They are easy to make and you can freeze them and nuke them for a quick 2-minute turn-around. Plus you can make them in about a million different ways. Here are some of my tops:

Petite Vegetable Frittatas

Mini Spinach & Feta Quiche

 Sun-Dried Tomato, Bacon Mini Frittata
