7 days of different healthy breakfasts
When it comes to healthy breakfast recipes, you know I’ve got you covered!
Breakfast is my favourite meal. I mean, what’s not to love? You can eat pretty much anything, sweet or savoury for your first meal of the day.
Not everyone feels that way though. I know some people just don’t feel like eating first thing in the morning.
Or if you’re following any type of Intermittent Fasting, then you’ll be eating your first meal later in the day. Technically, you’re still ‘breaking your fast’ but you might not call it breakfast!
Even if you don’t eat breakfast at all, studies are now showing that it isn’t as big a deal as previously thought. I won’t go into the details right now, but you can read this article by Precision Nutrition on SKIPPING BREAKFAST.
Anyway, for those of you who are breakfast lovers like me, and you need it to be quick and healthy, read on …..
Planning & prep for healthy breakfasts
It might seem obvious, but a little bit of planning and prep will help you to be successful. Even taking just a few minutes to jot down what you’ll have for brekkie for the coming week.
Check that you’ve got the ingredients on hand, and allow enough time each morning to make the breakfasts you have planned.

Free Brekkie Challenge
We all need some extra help and motivation from time to time, which is why I run my free brekkie challenge several times per year.
My motto is to keep it simple, healthy and delicious, so check out the recipes in this post for some of my favourite breakfast recipes.

GREEK YOGHURT WITH HONEY, TOASTED MUESLI & FRUIT
This is my favourite no fuss, 5 minute BREKKIE BOWL. Use 2 or 3 big spoonfuls of yoghurt (mixed with honey) then top it with a handful of muesli, and a serving or two of fruit.
You can supercharge a basic bowl further by adding other toppings such as flaxseed, chia seeds, protein powder, nut butter, bee pollen or whatever else you like!
The prep needed for this one is making the muesli – get my TOASTED MUESLI RECIPE HERE.
I also recommend trying this delish BANANA MUESLI.
Make a big batch on the weekend and you’ll have enough for a couple of weeks.
SOFT BOILED EGGS
Eggs are such a great way to start the day, because they’re just so darned good for you, and they fill you up.
I used to boil my eggs in a saucepan on the stovetop – timed for two minutes, once the water starts to boil. However, now I use my pressure cooker, and I love that I don’t have to watch over them. I just set the timer, and come back to perfect eggs, every time!

COCONUT MILK PORRIDGE WITH FRUIT
For this one you’ll need my COCONUT MILK PORRIDGE recipe. Then just add your favourite toppings.
Coconut milk gives this porridge a really creamy taste, but you can use any type of milk you prefer. Just add a shake of cinnamon and a dash of vanilla to the oats and water.
I recommend cooking porridge on the stovetop, as it’s easier to watch, and add ingredients as you go. And it really only takes about 10 minutes.
Who doesn’t love a good muffin? But they’re often loaded with not-so-healthy fats, sugar and refined flours.
Obviously there is some prep required for these. Bake a batch on the weekend for delish breakfast treats all week long!
These muffins are also perfect to take to those work morning teas. You’ll convert even your most skeptical colleagues, once they taste these babies!

CHOCOLATE ENERGY BARS
Make a batch of these NO BAKE ENERGY BARS to keep in the freezer for those mornings when you need to grab something on the run.
For me, they’re the perfect mini brekkie, with a cup of coffee, of course, before a morning workout. Just the right size, and plenty of energy boosting ingredients.
There’s also another slightly different PEANUT BUTTER version you might like to try. I mean, who doesn’t love peanut butter and chocolate?
GREEN SMOOTHIE/PROTEIN SHAKE
Smoothies and protein shakes are perfect when you don’t have a lot of time for breakfast. You can whiz one up and then drink it on the way to work, or after you get there.
They’re also a perfect pre or post workout snack. Just add a handful of nuts, or a hard boiled egg for a more filling meal.
EASY, HEALTHY PANCAKES
When you want something a bit more indulgent on the weekend, but still on the healthy side, you need to try my EASY WEEKEND PANCAKES.
Simply throw all the ingredients in a blender, and then cook! Add your favourite fruit, a drizzle of maple syrup, and some Greek yoghurt on the side.
Alternatively, try these POST WORKOUT PANCAKES for a delicious, healthy treat after a hard workout.
See, it’s easier than you might think to have a healthy breakfast every day!
Seriously though, it’s really not that hard to have a nutritious breakfast every day, when you have healthy breakfast recipes like these on hand.
