Breakfast isn’t called the most important meal of a day for no reason. How you start your day has a huge impact on your everyday wellbeing, your energy, your productivity and on your health. Benefits of eating breakfast:
- More energy for the whole day
- Helps kick start your metabolism
- Better concentration
- Less cravings
- Less fatigue
A healthy and nourishing breakfast full of nutrition is key to provide ultimate nutrition to your body after rest. Below are some quick and easy breakfast recipes full of nutrition and a great way to start your day!
If you want a healthy ready-to-go breakfast waiting for you in the morning, then overnight oats are your perfect pick.
Full of fibre, protein and healthy fats this breakfast will give you energy and keep you full until lunch. Prepare your overnight oats for 3 days on Sunday evening so you can start your week without worrying about a healthy breakfast.
1/3 cup gluten free oats
1 tsp. chia seeds
1 tsp. flax seeds
½ tsp. cinnamon powder
1/3 cup milk (almond or rice)
1-2 tsp honey
fruits of choice (berries, apple or dried fruits)
Mix all ingredients in a glass jar with a lid and refrigerate overnight. If you prefer your fruits fresh, then simply add them the next morning instead of mixing them through the mixture the night before.
Avocado is one of the healthiest foods you can eat – full of beneficial healthy fats, vitamins and fibre! If you like it savoury in the morning try this 2 minute avocado toast and kick-start your metabolism with the right amount of carbs, protein and good fats.
1 wholegrain toast
½ ripe avocado
feta or goats cheese
juice of lemon
Toast bread. In a small bowl mash avocado and mix with salt, pepper and few drops of lemon juice. First put mashed avocado and then cheese on toast. Top with sprouts and pepper and salt to taste. Enjoy!
Banana Chocolate Pancake
This recipe is for all the pancake lovers. A healthy and quick version that will satisfy your sweet tooth and keep you full until lunch.
1/3 cup gluten free oats
½ ripe banana
1 egg (or chia egg if vegan: 1 Tbsp chia seeds + 2.5 Tbsp water = a chia egg)
¼ cup almond milk
1 tsp honey
1-2 tbsp. cacao powder
pinch of sea salt
In a medium bowl mash banana with a fork, add all other ingredients and mix until well combined (or blend all ingredients in a blender).
Heat a pan with 1 tsp of coconut oil, pour batter into hot pan and cook for 3 minutes on medium heat. Flip and cook for 1-2 more minutes. Serve with more berries (I prefer frozen because they’re juicier) or nut butter – enjoy. You can leave out the cacao if you prefer no chocolate.
Baked Avocado Egg
This easy to make but unbelievably delicious and healthy breakfast is ready to go in 15 minutes. To save time you can get dressed or clean your teeth while it is cooking in the oven.
1 ripe avocado
Preheat oven to 375° F (190° C).
Cut avocados in half, remove the pit and scoop out a bit of the flesh to make the whole bigger. Crack the eggs and drop one in each of the avocados. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and chili flakes.
Bake for 15 minutes (or until the egg white is cooked but yolk still runny) on a lined baking try.
Enjoy with gluten free toast, or I sometimes sauces sweet potato noodles instead of bread – almost like hash browns!
