5 Healthy Breakfast Ideas to Start Your Morning Off Right

Eating a healthy breakfast starts the day off right. The problem is, many of us skip breakfast – either because there’s no time, or because we’re not hungry. Breakfast is the first chance we have to give our energy levels a boost, as long as we eat the right foods. Here are some of our favorite ideas:


This classic food still remains a top choice for breakfast. However, not all oatmeal is created equal. Steer clear from the prepackaged, flavored oatmeal, which can be loaded with unhealthy sugar and empty calories. Cook old-fashioned oats and season them yourself, instead. This crockpot oatmeal recipe can be made the night before, so your breakfast will be ready right when you get up! You can also mix your oatmeal with tasty ingredients such as nuts, fresh fruit, dried fruit, and even protein powder!


Yogurt is another healthy breakfast option, as long as you choose the right kind. Most flavored yogurts are loaded with sugar, so your best bet is to buy unflavored yogurt and add your own ingredients. Try adding sliced fruit, nuts, and even multi-grain cereal to your yogurt to make it even healthier. If you like a creamier yogurt, Greek-style yogurt is a good choice. You can also sweeten it with a small amount of agave syrup or honey, which is better for you than granulated sugar.


Even though whole eggs used to have a bad reputation, they’re back in favor. Rich in beneficial nutrients, such as protein and several of the B vitamins, eggs are definitely good for you! To make it even healthier, stick with eating veggie omelets or scrambles that have been made in a nonstick pan. The added vegetables will boost the nutrient content and since you won’t need to add oil to the skillet, there won’t be a lot of added calories.

Multigrain Bread

Sometimes the simplest breakfasts are amongst the best! By itself, multigrain bread isn’t quite enough to make a healthy meal. Smear it with natural peanut butter and eat it with a piece of fruit, however, and you have one of the healthiest, easiest breakfasts out there! Multigrain bread is rich in beneficial nutrients and has plenty of fiber. You can also make this healthy French toast recipe if you have some extra time in the morning to make a more hearty breakfast.


Smoothies are not only delicious, but they’re also healthy! As an added bonus, they’re also relatively simple to make. Keep plenty of fresh and frozen fruit on hand so that you can make a healthy smoothie whenever you want! Add one cup frozen fruit and 1 small, sliced banana to a blender. Add 1 cup of juice or milk (or soy or almond milk) and blend until smooth. For an added boost, feel free to add 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder just before blending.

Eating a healthy breakfast doesn’t need to be difficult. These tasty ideas can all be prepared in minutes!
