Easily eat a different breakfast every day
When it comes to healthy breakfast recipes, you know I’ve got you covered!
I’m sure you’ve heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Well I have to say that I agree with that, because breakfast is my favourite meal.
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 some kind of Intermittent Fasting, then you’ll be eating your first meal later in the day.
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.
Do a little bit of planning & prep
A little bit of planning and prep goes a long way. So do motivation and inspiration, which is why I run my free brekkie challenge several times per year.
Click on the “Brekkie Challenge” tab at the top of this page to join the latest challenge, or you can join the Wendy’s Way community, and I’ll let you know when the next one starts.
In the meantime, check out the recipes in this post for some easy and healthy 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) and 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. 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, because I love that I don’t have to watch over them. I just set the timer, and come back to perfect eggs, every time!
Add a slice of good rye or sourdough bread, and you’ve got a healthy breakfast to keep you full until lunchtime.
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. Bake a batch on the weekend for delish breakfast treats all week long!
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.
Try these POST WORKOUT PANCAKES for a delicious, healthy treat after a hard workout.
See, it’s easier than you think!
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.
All it take is a little bit of planning and prep, and you’ll be in the habit in no time.
