My Favorite Healthy Breakfasts!

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, right? Not only is it the most important meal, it is my favorite meal to have. Having a good, hearty breakfast gives me the energy I need to get through my day. When I plan on having a good breakfast, it makes my mornings just a little more enjoyable. Below are some of the things that I have been loving to eat for my favorite meal of the day. Enjoy!

Scrambled eggs with spinach and a side of Ezekial bread

  • This breakfast is very easy and fast. I take 3 eggs whisk them in a bowl and put them in a frying pan. I add a tiny bit of spinach and scramble that all together. On the side, I love having Ezekial bread with some sugar-free raspberry preserves. Ezekial bread is a bread made from whole grains that have been allowed to sprout.

“Jazzed” up oatmeal

  • To me, oatmeal is just too plain for me to eat it by itself, and I know I am not alone on that thought. I love “jazzing” up my oatmeal to make it taste good, but still keeping it healthy. All I do is put 1 cup of plain rolled oats in a bowl with about 1/4 cup of water. I microwave that for 2 minutes. I like my oatmeal a bit more “soupy” so I sometimes add a bit more water to mine when it comes out of the microwave. I add about 1 tbsp maple syrup, 1 tbsp peanut butter, granola, and bananas. That is usually what I put in my oatmeal. Sometimes I add some dark chocolate chips as well as some fresh fruit and some almonds!

Avocado Toast 

  • This is exactly what it sounds like, toast with avocado on it! I take 2 pieces of Ezekiel bread and toast them. Once they’re toasted I spread a tiny bit of butter on them. I take an avocado and cut it in half, I take one of the halves and spread it out between the 2 slices. I season with some pink Himalayan salt and pepper. I usually don’t put anything else on the toast, but sometimes I will fry 2 eggs and put those on top of the toast. The other half of the avocado I put in the fridge for another day.

Avocado and egg burrito.

  • This is something I like to make when I have a little more time on my hands. It doesn’t take that long but it takes a little more work than some of the breakfast listed above. I take some mushrooms, green peppers, and onions and fry those in a pan. I also scramble 2 eggs while the veggies are cooking. Once the veggies and eggs are finished, I take one whole grain tortilla and put the veggies, eggs and some avocado in the tortilla. I fold the tortilla in half and put it in our panini press. It will stay in the panini press for about 5 minutes or until there are nice grill marks on the tortilla. This is a great breakfast for on the go because you can wrap it up in tinfoil and eat in on the way to school, work or once you get to your destination.
