Healthy Breakfast Recipes
Hey babes! Need some healthy breakfast recipes? We’ve heard it all our lives, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. After 8 or more hours of not eating, your body needs to literally “break its fast” in order to restart your metabolism and get you set up for a day of fat burning, muscle building, and just healthy living! Let’s jump right into some of my favorite healthy breakfast ideas. Who’s hungry??
Easy breakfast recipes
First up, my all-time favorite go-to green smoothie!
Kick off your day with a burst of health by whipping up this amazingly nutritious and yummy green smoothie.
What you’ll need:
- 3 handfuls of kale or spinach
- 1/4 to 1/3 cup fruit, fresh or frozen (I prefer blueberries or strawberries)
- 1/4 fresh, ripe avocado
- 1 TBS chia seeds
- 1 square in fresh ginger
- Purified water or organic young coconut water
Load your favorite nutrient extractor or blender with your leafy greens first, then the rest of your dry ingredients. I’m obsessed with my NutriNinja, and I have enjoyed the NutriBullet as well. Pour the water in until the other ingredients are just covered. You can add more or a bit less until you reach your desired consistency. Turn on the blender and wait until everything is smooth and completely liquified, then enjoy! It’s the perfect breakfast to set you up for a great, healthy day!
Breakfast option #2!
I love to load up my oatmeal with all of the nutrients that will help restart my day off like a champion! This is one of my go-to healthy breakfast recipes when I need a bit of extra lasting energy, when I’m carb loading for an event or extra intense workout, or when I feel like having something warm and substantial for breakfast, especially on a chilly morning.
What you’ll need:
- 1/2 cup old fashioned slow cook steel cut or rolled oats
- 1/4 cup berries (I love diced strawberries, fresh blueberries, or dried mulberries)
- 1 tsp Manuka honey
- 1 tsp unrefined, cold-pressed, extra virgin, non hydrogenated coconut oil
- 1 tsp ground flax seeds or 1 tsp almond butter
Measure out your oats and pour them into your bowl. Add just a bit of water, until the oats are damp, but not wet. If you prefer a mushier texture, you can add more water; however, I love my oats to be a bit chewy when prepared with these ingredients! Microwave your oats for about 35 or 40 seconds. Add in all of your other ingredients, and stir. Tada, your oats are ready! This is a great breakfast for when you are running out the door, because the slightly dryer texture makes it much more portable than, say, a bowl of cereal, and you are basically dumping all of your morning essentials into one big yummy bowl!
The last of our healthy breakfast recipes, #3:
What you’ll need:
- 1 whole, organic egg
- 3 egg whites
- Frozen diced onions
- Frozen diced bell peppers
- Fresh or frozen kale or spinach
- Salsa, if you prefer
- Unrefined, cold-pressed, extra virgin, non hydrogenated coconut oil
- 1 small serving of goat cheese, if you prefer
Coat your pan with the unrefined, cold-pressed, extra virgin, non hydrogenated coconut oil. Toss in a layer of frozen diced onions and bell peppers, and let cook. Crack open your egg, and add in your 3 egg whites. You can choose to make this into an omelette or a scramble, depending on your preferences. I like to go somewhere in between, so instead of whisking the eggs together to make a scramble, I drop them into the pan and scramble them as they cook. Once your eggs are mostly cooked through, push them with a spatula to one side of the pan, and add in several handfuls of your fresh leafy greens. Regardless if they are fresh or frozen, you should add enough to fill the other half of the pan. As they begin to cook down, go ahead and start mixing them in with the eggs, onions, and peppers. If you want to add in goat cheese, slice your serving into thin pieces, and let them melt on top of your scramble or mix them in. Now, scoop it out onto your plate and top with salsa of your choice. Mmm, this is one of the tastiest and most protein-rich healthy breakfast recipes you can make!
