5 easy, delicious and healthy go-to breakfasts
Breakfast. The most important meal of the day, right? But who wants to make it on a busy work day? I try to squeeze in every last minute out of my sleep and I really don’t want to spend a lot of time in the morning preparing my breakfast. Here are my 5 go-to, easy breakfasts that are just as healthy as they are delicious.
Yogurt and granola
A simple grab and go breakfast, no cooking required! Yogurt is such a good source of probiotics (good bacteria) and it’s high in protein, depending on the variety you get. I really like the Trader Joe’s almond butter coconut yogurt. Probiotics in yogurt also promotes digestive health and boosts the immune system.
Add some chia seeds, honey and granola and you have yourself a balanced breakfast that slightly sweet, but still healthy.
I love a good liquid breakfast and I’m not talking about mimosas (although I don’t mind those either!) When I know it’s going to be a busy morning at work and I won’t have time to sit and eat, I’ll quickly mix a few ingredients in my magic bullet and off I go.
I’ve been experimenting with different flavors over the last couple of years, but I always come back to my old faithful. A little bit sweet, but protein packed and easy to drink, I reach for strawberry, banana, peanut butter, cacao, chia seeds, almond milk and if I’m in need of some greens I add spinach. I use frozen strawberries so that I don’t need to dilute my smoothie with ice. I also add a quarter cup of yogurt when I want it a bit thicker.
It doesn’t get more simple than this. I use 1/2 of one ripened avocado and sometimes I mash it with lemon and salt and other times I slice it and add lemon and Trader Joe’s Everything but the Bagel Sesame Seasoning. I toast my multi-grain bread, spread the avocado on and voila: Avocado Toast. Who said this had to be an overpriced basic breakfast? For me it just hits the spot!
Peanut Butter and Banana on an English Muffin or Ghee on Multigrain Toast.
I’m a big fan of bread in the morning. If I need the energy I reach for the peanut butter and slice a banana and if I’m not really in the mood for breakfast and just want something light, ghee on toast is my go-to.
Ghee, or clarified butter, is not only delicious, but it’s strengthens your bones and promotes healthy weight loss. You can totally make your own ghee, but I like the Banyan Botanicals ghee, which comes from small family farms in Northern California where the cows are given tender loving care, grass-fed, and pasture raised.
Kale or spinach omelet with feta and tomatoes
When I have more time I’ll whip up an omelet. If you don’t have enough time to make an omelet on an average morning, you can pre-make little egg omelet muffin cups. Find the recipe I use here.
Take two eggs and add a dash of water from the faucet. Option to add salt here if you’d like. Then you beat the hell out of them- a little trick my Grandpa taught me (in those words!)
Heat up a tablespoon of ghee in a non-stick pan (These are my favorite) Sauté the kale or spinach to let it cook down a bit. Then pour the egg mixture on top and let it cook at low heat for a few minutes. Fold over the sides of the omelet with a spatula and let it cook for another 30 seconds to a minute. One more flip to seal the deal and you’re done!
Add a multi-grain english muffin and some Bonne Maman jelly or spreadable cheese and your breakfast is complete.
