Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Make sure to eat a balanced breakfast with fat, protein, and carbs.
Quick & healthy ideas:
Yogurt, fruit & granola. I usually eat this for breakfast several times a week. I make a big batch of granola every few weeks with different nuts, seeds, and dried fruit (like pumpkin seeds, flax, walnuts, apricots). I then mix in low fat or full fat plain yogurt. Eating low or full fat plain yogurt contains more vitamins and minerals than the nonfat stuff. Plus it contains less sugar. Add a dash of honey if you need, but fresh fruit adds a natural sweetness. Some mornings I mix in a glass container and enjoy at work if I'm in a rush. Make granola and a big fruit salad ahead of time, so you'll have it ready for breakfast.
Whole wheat toast with avocado and/or cheddar and tomato (my favorite over the summer)
Whole wheat toast with almond/cashew butter and homemade preserves or banana slices
Oatmeal with berries, honey, cinnamon & walnuts
Cottage cheese & fruit
Let's be honest eggs don't take long to make. Yes, longer than pouring a bowl of cereal but eggs can be scrambled and eaten atop toast rather quickly.
When you have nothing but time:
Warm & nutty quinoa looks perfect for chilly mornings or after a grueling workout.
Omelette with mushrooms, peppers, onions, garlic, swiss chard
Roasted potatoes, eggs, spinach & onions
Breakfast burrito - whole wheat or corn tortilla with scrambled eggs, pintos, fresh salsa & avocado
