Healthy and Easy Breakfast Ideas
Want to eat well and nourish your body without spending hours in the kitchen every morning? These breakfast ideas will help you get all the nutrients your body needs and take less than 30 minutes to prepare.
Soaked Beans and Balsamic Salad
Soak pita beans, black beans or lentil beans in water for 10 minutes, then boil them until soft. The soaking “extracts” the chemicals that causes gas, resulting in a healthy, protein and nutrient-rich dish that doesn’t cause any gas.
Sprinkle the beans with a pinch of salt and pepper. Add a dash of oregano or dill for flavour. To go with the dish, have a nice salad with a bit of balsamic vinegar and olive oil on top. This breakfast is rich in proteins from the beans, rich in vitamins from the greens and also gives you healthy plant fats from the olive oil.
Cut up three or four different kinds of fruits. Add a cup of yogurt on top and mix – an extremely simple dish.
The fruits will provide your body with a boost of easy to use sugars to start the day off. It’ll also provide a wide range of nutrients, like potassium or magnesium.
The yogurt contains many healthy bacteria that help digestion.
Fresh Squeeze Orange Juice with Hummus and Pita
Fresh squeezed orange juice is rich in Vitamin C, among other things. It tastes great and will also give your body an energy boost. Orange juice is best squeezed right before consumption. Combine the orange juice with pita bread and hummus. You can pick these up at most grocery or health food stores.
Pita and hummus are very easy to make, as there’s no cooking required. All you need to do is heat it up and breakfast is served. Preparation time? Less than 10 minutes.
Scrambled Eggs with Organic Cheese and Veggies
What breakfast list would be complete without eggs? Cooking scrambled eggs (or an omelet) with veggies inside is one of the healthiest and easiest ways to have a delicious breakfast.
The veggies in the eggs should be veggies that cook quickly, like spinach, mushrooms or onions. Avoid slow-cook veggies like eggplants or broccoli. It also helps to add a dash of spices or herbs to make the eggs more flavorful.
Top off the scramble or omelet with some organic cheese from your local health food store. You now have a protein-rich, whole food breakfast that’s both fast and easy to make. If you want the breakfast to be a bit more filling, add a couple slices of toast on the side.
These are four highly nutritious and easy to make meals. None of them take more than 30 minutes to make and will give your body all the minerals, vitamins and energy it needs to lead a productive day.
Enjoy happy cooking
