Easy Breakfast Ideas

by Monique

Three of my go to easy breakfast ideas that are quick to make and will keep you full until lunch!

I’ll admit it I am not a morning person, never have been, never will be. Definitely the type who is usually in a rush. So I need quick and easy breakfast items for on the go. I wish I could wake up early and take my time but that snooze button calls out to me every day!

Oats

I know I know boring, right? Not in the slightest. I mean take a look at these creamy oats filled with pure maple syrup and cinnamon roasted almonds. The great thing about oats is they are so versatile. 

You can cook them on the stove top in a few minutes or zap them in the microwave if you are in a hurry. Overnight oats are a great option to give yourself back even more time on those busy weekday mornings.

Toast

Let’s be real, most of us grew up eating buttered toast or toast with jam. Nothing too creative or filling there. I absolutely love avocado toast like most but there are so many combinations you can make!

For breakfast, I usually have two pieces of toast to keep me full until lunch. One sweet and one savory. Some of the combinations below are deliciously satisfying!

For your sweet fruit filled combinations I always start with a hearty bread and nut butter. I use either peanut butter or almond butter. Then I simply fill my toast with the good stuff: fresh fruit, nuts, seeds, coconut, goji berries or whatever my heart desires.

For savory toast, I will often have hummus toast filled with fresh veggies or avocado toast. Sometimes I get really wild and build hummus, avocado veggie toast. Yummm!

Smoothies

Yet another very versatile option in the morning that is quick, easy and nutritious. Smoothies are one of my favorite breakfast items. Number one reason for this well I love smoothies, number two they are portable. For a not so morning person like me portable breakfast is the best!

To keep you full until lunch try adding things like nut butters, chia seeds, flax seeds, hemp seed and greens to your smoothies. These will add healthy protein, fat and nutrients to your morning breakfast. 

The trick to a good smoothie is frozen fruit and a good blender. I love my Vitamix and use it every day.
