Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. You might already know this, but for a combination of reasons, you may shortchange yourself at breakfast, or worse – skip the most important meal of the day altogether.
Getting a healthy breakfast doesn’t have to be a time-consuming chore. Read on for our list of seven easy, fast, (and best of all) healthy breakfasts.
1 - Avocado Toast
Avocado is one of the healthiest things you can put in your body. It’s loaded with monounsaturated fats and EFAs, and it isn’t just for guacamole anymore.
For a quick, easy and healthy breakfast: toast a couple of pieces of whole-grain bread; spread or smash fresh, ripe avocado on top; add a sprinkle of salt, and you’re ready to go. For bonus points, sprinkle on some chia seeds or a bit of extra healthy spirulina powder.
2 – Fruit, Nut, Granola and Yogurt Parfait
Parfait isn’t just for dessert. Take a bowl, glass, coffee cup, or whatever is handy and layer in chunks of granola, cut up fresh fruit, and unsweetened Greek yogurt. Then simply grab a spoon and get to it.
Again, bonus points for adding in spirulina or flax seeds.
3 – Black Bean Breakfast Burrito
Okay, this one is only quick and easy if you do the work ahead of time. But seriously, if you can cook off some home-style breakfast potatoes and then stuff them into five tortillas with some black beans and a little salsa on Sunday, you’ll have five workday’s worth of healthy, fast and easy breakfast ready in your freezer or fridge.
4 – Protein Squares
Another breakfast snack that requires doing the work when you have the time, this great alternative to store-bought sugary protein bars has the texture of a nutrition bar and the flavor of a homemade dessert.
Do a quick Internet search for no-bake nutrition squares, and you’ll find a multitude of recipes at the ready. If adding in protein powder, look for blends that are low in sugar and artifial ingredients. We recommend our Hawaiian Spirulina Protein Shake powder.
5 – Overnight Oatmeal
Two minutes of work the night before can put a hot breakfast in front of you in a matter of seconds the next morning.
Take a single portion of rolled oats, add a little less than the same portion of milk (cow, almond, soy, etc.) and any other flavor/health enhancers you want (like hemp seed or spirulina powder), and cover it up in the fridge. The milk will soften the oats and anything else you’ve added overnight, cutting microwave time to seconds the next morning.
6 – Quinoa Porridge
This one takes only a few minutes, but the results are totally worth it. Cook quinoa in soy, almond, or cow’s milk for a protein-rich, filling porridge. Add nuts, fruit, some cinnamon, or whatever you like, and you’ll be good to go until lunchtime.
7 – Smoothies
Smoothies are the go-to option of all quick and easy breakfasts. Start by taking some spirulina protein powder, combine it with the milk of your choice, a couple ripe (peeled) frozen bananas, and a handful of fresh fruit, and you have a delicious, easy breakfast in just a few minutes.
As mentioned above, Hawaiian Spirulina can be easily added to most of these recipes or taken by itself. Take with BioAstin Hawaiian Astaxanthin to provide yourself with a massive variety of health benefits.
Breakfast Doesn’t Have to Be a Chore
Hopefully, having this list at hand will help you to get with the program so you can start enjoying the most important, and often the best meal of the day. Your body will surely thank you.
