We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so it’s critical to start off on the right foot. Beginning your morning with a healthy meal provides your body and brain with the energy and nutrients needed to tackle a tough class or get through a workout. Check out these five super-easy to make meals that will help you avoid grabbing a bagel on the go!
1. Banana + Chocolate + Nut Butter
This perfect mix provides three key nutrients: fiber, protein, and calcium. You can whip them together in a blender or even better; spread them individually on a slice of wheat bread. (RECIPE)
2. Toast + Avocado + Egg
Avocado on toast is a common go-to, particularly in stunning pictures on Instagram! The combination of avocado, toast, and egg is filled with antioxidants and healthy fats that will hold you over until lunch. (RECIPE)
3. Steel-Cut Oats + Berries + Mixed Nuts
For some, oats can either be a hit or miss, but they facilitate digestion, lower cholesterol and will keep you full for hours. Throw in some nutrient-rich berries, protein-packed nuts, and dried cranberries or raisins and you’ve definitely got a power breakfast you'll actually enjoy. (RECIPE)
4. Egg + Kale + Goat Cheese
This one is my personal favorite because I love omelets! Kale is filled with fiber, potassium, and vitamins B6 and C while goat cheese has a great blend of calcium and low calories. If kale and goat cheese isn’t your thing, feel free to swap it for spinach or any other kind of cheese. Yum! (RECIPE)
5. Whole Wheat Muffin + Yogurt + Flaxseed + Blueberry
The right amount of whole wheat bread or muffin will fill you up with fiber. If you’re trying to go carb-free altogether, this breakfast still works by combining the yogurt, flaxseeds, and blueberries. (RECIPE)
