3 Healthy (and quick) Breakfast Ideas

breakfastfoods1Eating a healthy breakfast doesn’t have to be a daunting task.  You don’t have to spend forever in the kitchen crafting an artisan omelet (unless you have the time and motivation!) but you don’t have to give in to the siren song of the Lucky Charms either.  Here are my favorite 3 ways to enjoy a healthy breakfast on a weekday morning.granola

Yogurt with granola.  No recipe needed here.  Put your favorite yogurt in a bowl and top it with your favorite granola (homemade would be ideal).  Bonus points if you have some fruit laying around to add as a finishing touch.  Simple and satisfying.smoothie

Ah, the smoothie.  So many flavor possibilities, so little time. This particular smoothie is of the chocolate peanut butter variety.

You will need:

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 cup milk of your choice (I used almond)
  • 1 tsp. cocoa powder
  • 2 Tbsp. PB2 powder or a spoonful of regular peanut butter
  • 1 Tbsp. chia seeds (optional)

Add ingredients to blender and blend until smooth and delicious.

What’s you’re favorite healthy breakfast?

  1. Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day, any day! I would eat any of the items here in a heartbeat. Most mornings I go with oatmeal with berries on top with brown sugar. I like my oatmeal on the lumpy / thick side. 🙂
