Mornings can be a hectic time. Between putting last-minute touches on work and taking time to eat a healthy breakfast before you rush out the door may be easily overlooked. But it doesn’t have to be. A few of these quick breakfast ideas are so good; you may decide to repeat them daily. After all, whatever is easy enough for you to eat before you get to the office is the right choice for a healthy morning meal.
Smoothies are a perfect on-the-go snack any time of day. Blend frozen bananas, peanut butter, soy milk, Greek yoghurt, honey, and a few ice cubes, and you’ll swear you’re sipping a milkshake.
Sometimes simple is just better — top two lightly toasted slices of whole-grain bread with smashed avocado and a pinch of salt and pepper. Layer on two sunny-side-up eggs for a healthy dose of protein and you’ve got a well-rounded breakfast for yourself.
Here’s a simple and delicious smoothie for the morning rush. It takes less than five minutes to blend fresh or frozen fruit (banana and berries) with Greek yoghurt and a liquid of your choice (milk, juice, or coconut water).
Eggs, which I prefer calling protein superstars, are the foundation of this tasty, fibre-rich meal. Enjoy a healthy dose of vitamin C, lycopene, potassium, and folate, courtesy of the sweet grape tomatoes. A swirl of pesto adds a fresh, garlicky kick and vibrant color. Serve atop slices of whole-grain toast.
Here’s a vegan take on a classic summer breakfast sandwich. Instead of mayo, a fluffy, creamy mixture of nuts, garlic, miso paste, and nutritional yeast is spread on hearty whole-grain bread. Then slices of ripe tomatoes are layered on — we love to mix red and yellow heirlooms.
