Those e-mails are calling your name and your stomach is grumbling away. Boxed pancakes and waffles sound ideal, but they’ll just lag you down all day and leave you wanting more in an hour. A bowl of fruit is oh-so-lifestyle blogger of you, but a girl’s gotta make it to lunch. So if you need something that’s healthy and will keep your rumbling at bay til’ the lunch bell’s a ringin’, get ready to bookmark these breakfast options:
Taco bought a fun way to start your morning, amiright? And this recipe is also super easy to health-ify. Simply use a whole wheat, organic tortilla, ditch the canned salsa for this homemade fruit version, and use low-fat cheese. The protein in the eggs will also keep you feelin’ full.
This strawberry, blueberry, gojiberry, and heck, any other berry variety you feel like throwing in there will not only satisfy, but have you feeling like a top-notch chef ready to audition for Chopped. Or maybe just the kids spin-off, because throwing berries in a blender is as Level 1 as it gets. All the more reason to try this bowl out.
Is there anything that screams you have your life together more than overnight oats? Answer: no. It is the mark of one boss betch, i.e. you. The difference between making it in the am (who caught that 1D reference) and prepping the night before is obviously the efficiency, but *bonus* the oats get to soak up all the nutrient-packed goodness. Top with fresh berries in the morning for a sweet bite.
Putting anything on toast nowadays is pretty much fair game. Keep it OG-classic with avocado, Sriracha, and an over-easy egg, or try out these banana, protein-packed options for an extra boost of health and satisfaction.
Not in the mood to prep overnight oats? No problem. Make this super simple quinoa replacement in the morning. The bananas add the natural sugars, while peanut butter puts the pro in protein. Vanilla and a splash of almond milk makes the quinoa the perfect oats understudy.
Not to be banana-bias, but they’re one of the cheaper items in the fresh grocery section and they taste good on everything. But when it comes to a pancake substitute, everyone from Karlie Kloss to us at Spoon swears by this healthy carb stack of goodness. Get the super filling, easy-to-make recipe here.
No high-fat muffins here, people. You can keep em’ stored and ready for the week ahead of you, or take them on the go for you and the office. You won’t feel guilty for eating a few, and all of the packed veggies will hold you over for the day.
This recipe is for those of you that like a challenge, but trust me, it pays off once you taste this breakfast pie. I mean, it’s pie. For breakfast. Pretty self-explanatory. Get this jam-packed berry recipe here.
These healthy vegan bad boys will be nearly enough to convert you to veganism. The best part? They only set you back $1. Most of the ingredients you probably already have stocked up, and the Nutella and whipped cream is a necessary added bonus. Get a recipe for vegan whipped cream right here.
Another healthy muffin in existence say whaaa? Yes carb fans, it’s true. Coconut flour, eggs, and blueberries are the fresh ingredients in these paleo golden brown gems that make for one beneficial chew.
In Europe, it’s pretty standard to see lunch meats on the table in the morn’. So go rogue and channel Italy for this avocado, prosciutto, and garlic combo that will have you packing two extra, not one, to work for that mid-day meal.
First pie and muffins, now pizza? Calm down kids, we’re still riding the healthy train. Granted, this may be more suitable for brunch, but no one here is judging if you’re tossing dough in the air at 8 am. Make it using this Greek yogurt dough recipe for another breakfast twist you didn’t see coming.
13. Protein Bread with Homemade Jam
Combine this filling banana & nut butter protein-filled loaf with strawberry chia seed jam to spread on top and you’ve earned your next day off. So you can eat this whole metabolism boosting meal three times over, that is.
14. Samoa Oatmeal
Oatmeal is truly a gift for those of you who get the bottom-of-the-barrel lunch break hour, AKA your name mine as well be in the credits of “The Devil Wears Prada” because mining the desk is so vital. This recipe takes rolled oats and adds everyone’s favorite Girl Scout Cookie, Samoas, for a sweet crunch. Or make it even healthier with homemade banana coffee chip cookies.
What’s a healthy and filling breakfast without a protein-packed hash? This recipe calls for sweet potatoes, spinach, avocado, and of course, eggs. Hot sauce and goat cheese crumbles make for a truly delish morning wake-up call.
