Quick Breakfast Ideas

I can’t do a quick breakfast list without some avocado toast; I can’t even imagine life without avocado toast. Avocado toast is not only delicious but is packed with healthy fats and fibers. The avocado is mashed then seasoned with fresh minced garlic, salt and freshly ground black pepper. Its really that simple.

Avocado toast with fried egg and arugula: toast 2 slices of wholegrain bread; top one slice with the mashed avocado. Top the other slice with some spicy mustard, thinly sliced red onions, arugula and a sunny side up egg. You can eat them separately in a open sandwich format or put the two slices of area together for a delicious sandwich.

Quick Breakfast Ideas

Wholegrain toast with scrambled eggs and cherry tomatoes: This is my go to breakfast; I usually have it at least twice a week. Whole grain toast is topped with 2 scrambled eggs, halved cherry tomatoes, chives, everything bagel seasoning and a drizzle of olive oil. So easy yet so delicious.

Healthy Breakfast Ideas for everyday people

You have probably have heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day so many times which is true. A healthy breakfast is necessary to keep you going all day and will also prevent you from eating junk in the morning. I don’t always have a proper breakfast every morning but I do try to grab a fruit or yogurt for those days when I am in a rush and then make a more robust breakfast on weekends. I am sharing pictures of some of the breakfast dishes I have made for inspiration.

How to make a healthy breakfast

When is comes to making a healthy breakfast you want to make sure you have a good balance of nutrients. Having a slice of toast is fine but you have to consider if your bread is whole grain or if you should use peanut butter instead of plain butter. Here are a few things to include in your breakfast for a healthy balance of nutrients.

Protein: Adding some good protein sources like eggs or smoked salmon to your breakfast will not only provide you with nutrition but will keep you fuller longer. Ever noticed how quickly you feel hungry after eating carbs only but stay fuller longer if you have some protein.

Carbohydrates: Contrary to popular belief , carbs are not completely bad for you they are actually necessary to providing you much needed energy throughout the day. However the key is moderation, you don’t want to eat a carb heavy meal as it will lack in other nutrients. When choosing carbs choose the good carbs like whole grain bread and oatmeal. I personally will not buy bread unless it contains at least 3 grams of dietary fibre.

Fats: Yes fats are also a necessary part of a healthy diet but remember you have to eat the good fats. By good fats I mean fat from fish, avocados, nuts, olives etc. These kind of fats help with heart disease, healthy skin and more. Try some avocado toast or boiled egg in the morning before work.

Vitamins and Minerals: These are essential to a healthy body because they provide so many health benefits from creating a good immune system, building healthy bones to helping maintain good eyesight. I could literally spend all day explaining the benefits of vitamins and minerals. Try adding some fruit to your breakfast or even a fruit smoothie will do the trick. I like to make a make a quick fruit salad on weekends and grab a piece of fruit on my way to work. Vegetables like tomatoes, cucumber and spinach are always great with breakfast dishes.

Fresh Squeezed Juice: The easy way to upgrade your Breakfast

One of the simple pleasures of life is freshly squeezed juice in the morning. I look forward to weekends  when I can treat myself to a refreshing glass of orange juice. It’s not only delicious but also has many healthy benefits. It’s packed with vitamin C, promotes healthy metabolism and gives your immune system a boost.

Fresh Squeezed JuiceI usually use my Breville juicer but you can squeeze the oranges by hand or by using a citrus juicer. I like to  make it fun by adding grapefruit for added nutrition and flavor. Chill it in the freezer while you prep your breakfast and enjoy the pure goodness with one of these delicious breakfasts. It’s true what they say, once you go freshly squeezed you can’t go back.

Reasons to love Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice:

  • Fresh squeezed juice tastes 10 times better than the store bought variety.
  • It is free of harmful chemicals and preservatives. You don’t have to worry about consuming ingredients you can’t pronounce.
  • Fresh squeezed orange juice is packed with nutrition especially vitamin C which is good for collagen production, healthy skin and more.

I am so excited about these delicious oatmeal breakfast muffins because they have saved my life in the mornings and I would like you to enjoy them as well. I don’t know what it is about fall that makes me want to bake, maybe its the fact that baked goods go very well with hot beverages which are more popular in cold weather. Packed with oatmeal, carrots and banana puree’ these muffins are super tasty and amazing.
