Breakfast, arguably the most important meal of the day, tends to be the one people struggle with the most. I admit that I too have a hard time eating a balanced breakfast. I’m not always hungry first thing in the morning or I am in a rush to get out the door. Too often, I skip breakfast altogether. On occasion, this is not necessarily a bad thing. I’ve heard more and more about the benefits of intermittent fasting. However, I know that avoiding breakfast can sometimes lead to poor choices throughout the day – usually due to insatiable cravings for foods that overcompensate for a missed meal.
The following is a list of Easy Healthy Breakfasts that can either be made ahead of time or very quickly. They are all tried-and-true recipes that I personally love and have shared on the blog before. I’ve just consolidated them here for easy access.
Some are Paleo, some are Whole30, others are both. Be sure to read the ingredients of each to find out which one works best for you.
1. CPG Paleo Granola
Think of it more like a make-ahead trail mix that goes great with fresh fruit and a splash of coconut and almond mylk.
2. Whole30 Prosciutto, Pepper, Mushroom Egg Muffins
These Egg Muffins are Whole30 lifesavers. They can be made ahead of time, stored in the fridge and eaten on-the-go. Try them with a dash of your favourite compliant hot sauce.
3. Marcela’s Easy Paleo Pancakes
With only 4 simple ingredients, these Paleo Pancakes are super easy to make! I serve them with fresh fruit, some nut butter and a drizzle of organic maple syrup.
4. Almond-Date Chia Pudding
This Almond-Date Chia Pudding is a clutch, make-ahead breakfast idea. Simply soak the chia seeds in some naturally-sweetened nut mylk and serve it throughout the week with fresh fruits, nuts and seeds. Perfect for on-the-go breakfasts as well.
5. Whole30 Western Hash
Whole30 Western Hash is my idea of the ultimate Sunday Brunch. Not only will it easily feed 2-4 people (depending on size of pan and/or guest list), but it is also a great way to use up veggies in your fridge!
It doesn’t hurt that everything gets cooked up in a single pan!
