Quick and Nutritious Breakfast Ideas

Monday, October 28, 2019

It seems like no matter what we do, time always seems to get the best of us and a disadvantage of that can be putting ourselves on the back burner. Wellness and self care should be just as important and that should involve a breakfast, even if it has to be quick, that’s healthy and your body deserves. 
Here are a few items I regularly fix for myself or feed my family that takes a little bit of time to make and has a whole lot of nutrition.

Hydrate First! 
Try to start the day with some warm lemon or key lime water. 
Warm up those systems and get your body hydrated and prepped first and foremost. Here are some benefits of warm lemon water. 

Always my favorite healthy fast food. 
A bowl of berries, 2 or even 3 bananas, some season pears or apples or peach and mango slices. Add some raw nut butter for added protein and healthy fat. 



One of my favorite quick and nutritious meals. You can make it sweet or savory and can take it with you. Sitting down and taking the time to eat is better for your digestion, but for transparency purposes, toast 
can go on the road with you. I prefer sprouted or spelt wheat bread over “bread” that’s bleached, nutrient zapped and replaced with artificial dupes, or has a way too long list of ingredients.

Favorite recipes:
Almond butter honey or maple syrup

-topped with chia seeds, hemp seeds, or fresh berries 
Avocado w/sea salt and pepper, or hemp or sesame seeds
-topped with Roma tomato slices or red onion if time permits 
Chia preserves 

**Whether you eat eggs, or don’t eat eggs like myself, that’s neither here nor there. I know I can find nutrition elsewhere without eating an animal by product and the mister and children eat eggs. So you can 
boil and eat your eggs or skim over. 

Hard boiled eggs 
Crack and pack and ear on the go. 
I don’t eat eggs, but when the kids occasionally do, they always opt for hard boiled eggs. 

Waffles or Pancakes 
Nature’s Path waffles and cereal. 
I love that the ingredients are much better than conventional cereals, dyed with fruits and veggies and made with less sugar. 
Now for homemade, you can make extra one morning and freeze them for later. Then, homemade pancakes can be nutritious and quick. Make and freeze later French toast we’ll help as well. 
Here’s my favorite vegan recipe: Here

Light and Fluffy Vegan Pancakes by The Pretty Bee

Make little baggies the night before and have them ready to blend and go. I love smoothies for summer mornings, but in the colder months, I’d rather have them for an afternoon snack. 
Add in plant based protein from chia or hemp seeds, or even powder.


W/ granola and fruit. 
I like the So Delicious brand for yogurt (unsweetened) and then add honey or agave to your liking, fruit (berries are usually my go to and then some granola (homemade or store bought. Pay attention to ingredients). 


I prefer stove top, but if you are going to use prepackaged, check those ingredients. We want oats, real cane sugar; you can add your own cinnamon, pumpkin spice, minced apples, peaches or strawberries etc. 

Bake ahead of time and grab and go. The options are endless: banana, chocolate zucchini, carrot, apple, berries.

Trail mix
Mix up some raisins, Gogi or mulberries, with 3/4 of your favorite bits. Tons of healthy fats and packed with protein and will give you a steady bit of energy for the morning. 

My fav mix is raisins, pumpkin seeds, almonds and walnuts, and vegan dark chocolate mini chips. 

These are go-to meals for my family and I and don't be afraid to tweak it to fit your taste buds or satiety level.
