As they say, breakfast is the most important meal of the day and while I love a good waffle drenched in maple syrup and topped with extra whipped cream & regret, there's just something about starting my morning with a workout and a meal of pure health that makes me feel like I can take on the day. Here are a few healthy & quick breakfasts to start the day off right:
If you're not feeling raspberry, you can sub virtually any fruit in its place.
These are basically the fresh and healthy version of the Special K variety.
We actually posted this recipe on ThreePeachyBees way before we started our color coordinated theme. It's delicious! We subbed parmesan and feta for swiss on two different occasions (may have been too lazy to run to the store for cheese) and it's just as divine. This one takes some prep and cook time, so it'd be perfect as a make-ahead meal or to make the day of on a lazy Sunday.
This link actually offers 2 additional oatmeal varieties including a Carrot & Rye Oatmeal and a Sweet Coconut Oatmeal. Both of which I will be trying out in the very near future.
I usually grab a slice of Pumpernickel or Rye bread, spread an 1/8 of an avocado (or some tahiti depending on the day) on the half, prep my eggs with some Himalayan salt and pepper, grab a handful of baby spinach, cut up 2 Campari tomatoes on the side and call it a day. It's super fast and always delicious. The above recipe is essentially the same thing with a twist (ricotta and arugula).
You can never go wrong with chia seed pudding — Unless you're a texture eater and chia seeds freak you out that is, but hey, I'm not lying when I speak for the rest of us. This needs to sit for an hour so make it the day before!
This almost has 10g of protein per serving. Bake a batch tonight and have enough leftovers for the rest of the week.
With 15 minutes in the kitchen and 5 ingredients, this recipe is definitely a keeper for those rushed mornings. I skip the bacon to keep it on the healthy side.
My pre-workout go-to is basically this with the ricotta swapped out for Greek yogurt. Either way, it's quick, simple, and delicious.
I sub out the regular sugar for coconut sugar (I use less than a tablespoon, too) and my favorite Greek Yogurt will always be Plain Siggi's, sorry Chobani!
