8 Quick Healthy Breakfast Ideas for Busy Mornings

Even though breakfast is the most important meal of the day, most of us don’t prepare a healthy breakfast each morning. Instead we tend to go for unhealthy options that leave us hungry again mid-morning.

This is despite the fact that a healthy breakfast isn't as strenuous and time consuming to make as you may think. To help you with the task, we have rounded up eight quick healthy breakfast ideas that will fill you up without making you late for work or school.

  1. Peanut butter roll ups. You only need three ingredients for this. Peanut butter, banana and flat bread. Simply spread your peanut butter on a flatbread. Slice a banana and spread it all over the flatbread, then roll it up. You can easily take this with you when you’re commuting or walking.  
  2. Overnight oats in a jar. This quick healthy breakfast idea is pretty popular on Pinterest. You can pretty much customise what you want to put in your jar. Choose from carrot cake, overnight oats, protein oats, Apple pie, pumpkin pie and much more. The choices are endless! Plus, this is prepared the night before so you don’t really have to make anything in the morning.
  3. Yogurt parfait. Greek yogurt and some of your favourite fruits is all you need. Slice up any fruits you like such as bananas, blueberries, or strawberries then alternate layers of fruit and Greek yogurt. You can also make this overnight, saving you time in the morning.
  4. Avocado toast. A very quick and simple breakfast you can make in the morning. You just need to mash a sliced and peeled avocado. Then spread onto toast or a bagel. Add seasonings like salt or lemon juice if you like.
  5. No-bake breakfast cookies. These cookies are made with flaxmeal, protein powder, cinnamon, oats and soy milk. They are naturally sweetened with raisins, banana and peanut butter. Simply mix all the ingredients together, stir them, and add dry fruits or nuts on top. Don’t forget to flatten them out to form a cookie. Then refrigerate overnight.
  6. Breakfast burritos. A very versatile, quick and healthy breakfast idea that you can eat on-the-go. You just need a soft taco-size flour tortilla, a beaten egg, cheddar cheese, and any fillings you fancy such as a baby spinach, bacon, or sausage. Cook the egg and cheddar cheese on top of the tortilla, add your fillings then wrap!
  7. Breakfast smoothie. One of the most convenient breakfast meals you can make. Just blend your favourite fruits together with some milk and ice cubes. Did you know that you can get almost 5 grams of fibre and almost 10 grams of protein from two servings of breakfast smoothie?
  8. Hard boiled eggs and avocado. Reduce your need to eat a mid-morning snack by eating hard boiled eggs. Eating eggs can help sustain your energy levels in the morning because of the protein and fat they have. You can boil your eggs the night before and add avocado or sprinkle salt and pepper on them.

Don’t sacrifice a healthy breakfast, just because you don’t have time in the morning. Use these eight quick healthy breakfast ideas, so you can start your day positive and healthy!
