Healthy Breakfast Ideas

I’ve been trying to eat healthier for a while now. It’s taken me a while to find healthy food options that are not just good for me but that I would actually enjoy eating on a regular basis. These are a few go to ideas that I reach for when I want a healthy breakfast.

Qia Chia, Buckweat, & Hemp Cereal
I discovered this cereal thanks to ttsandra on Youtube. While the texture took some getting used to, it does a phenomenal job at keeping me full until my pre-lunch snack. I put two tablespoons qia and 4 to 5 tablespoons of milk in a bowl and wait 5 minutes for the chia seeds to expand. I also add a teaspoon of honey to sweeten it up a bit. On it’s own it tastes pretty bland and squishy but with the honey it’s actually pretty tasty.

Avocado, Egg and Toast
I discovered this while searching healthy recipes on Pinterest and i have never looked back. this is by far my favorite healthy breakfast. I mash up half an avocado on a piece of wheat bread, my favorite is Arnold 100% Whole Wheat. Then, I put two sunny side up eggs on top, sprinkle some pepper, and viola breakfast is done! Unfortunately, I don’t wake up early enough most days so I tend to make this on the weekends.

Chocolate, Bannana, and Peanut Butter Smoothie
I add a rounded scoop of chocolate protein powder to 1 cup of milk. Then I add a frozen banana and a tablespoon of peanut butter. It is so delicious and surprisingly filling on its own. When I’m in a hurry, I usually just use the protein powder and milk in a blender bottle and I’m out the door. If you’re looking for a good protein powder, I highly recommend Gold Standard 100% Whey Protein Powder. I get a 5lb tub on mine on Amazon for about $60. I have it in chocolate and vanilla flavor and they are both awesome!

Quaker Protein Instant Oatmeal
This is usually something I fix when the weather is cooler but I wanted to include it because it is a great option if you like oatmeal. Each serving has 10 grams of protein and I find it’s much more filling than regular oatmeal. Usually, I put dried cranberries on top and it gives just the right amount of sweetness while still being relatively healthy.

Hopefully you enjoyed finding out what I like to eat to have a healthy start to my day. It’s a departure from my usual posts but I had a lot of fun writing this one! Look out for more food related posts in the future!
