5 Healthy & Quick Breakfast Options

Here's a list of 5 breakfast options that you can make at-home in under 5-minutes with no cooking experience.



 

Option 1: Nutrient Packed Oatmeal - "Up your oatmeal game"

  1. Start with 1/2 cup of plain oatmeal & add 1 cup of water

  2. Mix in cinnamon (ginger & cloves for added benefits), a pinch of salt

  3. Optional: Mix in 2 tbsp of flax seeds or chia seeds for healthy Omega-3s

  4. Heat in the microwave for 1-min, stir, and heat for another 30-60 seconds

  5. Mix in 1.5 tbsp of your favorite nut butter or 1/2 cup of greek yogurt (I like Siggis)

  6. Mix in 1/2 cup of a berry of your choice (blueberries are my favorite)


Nut butter options: Natural peanut butter (no hydrogenated oils!), almond butter, sunflower butter (no hydrogenated oils!), or try tahini!

 

Option 2: Toast & ??? - "Toast doesn't have to be boring"

  1. 2 slices of bread - toasted golden brown (toast brand options at the bottom)

  2. Choose 1 spread: 1/2 an avocado mashed, 1 tbsp nut butter, or 1 tbsp goat cheese

  3. Cook two eggs - however you like them (I like over-easy)

  4. Smear your spread of choice on your toast while the eggs are cooking. When the eggs are cooked place them on top of the spread & toast

  5. Top with everything but the bagel seasoning, and/or hot sauce of choice (optional), sliced banana is also an option if you went with nut butter

Don't buy crappy bread, here are 4 good brand options: Dave's bread/english muffins, Aldi sprouted grain bread, Ezekiel bread, true sourdough or pumpernickel (both are hard to find but read the labels!)


 

Option 3: Eggs & ??? - "Low carb option"

  1. 2-3 eggs cooked however you like them (scramble, fry, poach, soft-fry)

  2. Mix in mushrooms or green/red peppers if you like them. An easy way to get a serving of veggies first thing in the morning.

  3. Choose 1 toping: 1 tbsp goat cheese, 1 tbsp nut butter (don't hate on it until you try it), 1 tbsp pesto, or a serving of mozzarella/parmesan cheese

  4. Top with hot sauce of choice (optional)

For real...don't knock the nut butter on eggs until you try it! If weight loss is your goal and you're watching calories then opt for 1-2 whole eggs and 2-3 egg whites. If you're on a hard weight gain plan then add an extra egg or two, and 2 servings of topping.
