Whether you’re trying to lose weight, eat healthier, or simply get more done in the morning, breakfast is a great place to start. The problem is that many of us don’t have a lot of time to make breakfast. Luckily, there are plenty of fast and healthy options that can be made in less than 10 minutes—including these seven recipes!
Overnight oats are a great option for breakfast. They’re easy to make, healthy, and can be made ahead of time.
- Oats are a great base for any breakfast dish. They’re high in fiber and protein, which makes them good for you.
- You can add different ingredients to your oats depending on what flavors you like or what you have on hand at the time (nuts, fruit slices).
- If you prepare your overnight oats in advance of eating them in the morning–and store them properly–you won’t even have to worry about cooking them when it comes time for breakfast!
The smoothie bowl is a delicious, nutritious breakfast option that can be made in less than five minutes. It’s like a traditional smoothie but with more texture and flavor from toppings like granola or nuts!
The health benefits of this meal are endless: Smoothies can help improve digestion by breaking down food better than solid meals do; they’re also packed full of vitamins and minerals from all those fruits and vegetables that make them so good for you. They provide fiber (which helps keep blood sugar levels steady), as well as protein, which provides energy throughout the day. Plus, when you add superfoods like chia seeds (high in omega-3 fatty acids) or spirulina powder (high in iron), your body will thank you later!
A veggie omelet is a great way to start your day. This recipe includes eggs, as well as a variety of vegetables and spices that will make it taste delicious.
- Chop up your vegetables into small pieces and sautee them for about 5 minutes in a pan with some olive oil or butter on medium heat until they are soft but not browned yet (you’ll cook them again later).
- Add salt and pepper to taste (about 1/4 teaspoon each), then remove from heat and transfer into a bowl until ready to assemble the omelet batter in step 4 below!
Breakfast burritos are a great way to pack in some protein, fiber, and carbs for your morning meal. They’re also super simple to make! Here’s how:
- Heat up some oil in a skillet (or you can use an electric skillet). Add the eggs and scramble them until they reach your desired consistency.
- While the eggs are cooking, heat up the tortillas on both sides until soft and pliable–you can do this on top of the stove or in an oven set at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 5 minutes. If using regular flour tortillas instead of corn ones (which I recommend), wrap each one tightly in foil first so they don’t get soggy when stored overnight before eating them in the morning.
- Once everything is ready, add whatever ingredients you want into each tortilla–cheese would be good here if you’ve got some around! Then roll it up tight like a burrito or fold over like a taco shell; serve immediately with hot sauce if desired! If not eating right away then store any extras tightly wrapped up in plastic wrap until ready to eat again later on down road when time gets busy again.”
- Add yogurt and fruit to your granola parfait. Use low-fat yogurt to reduce calories, but don’t skimp on flavor by using low-fat granola! Add nuts, seeds and dried fruit for an extra boost of nutrients.
- Experiment with different combinations of fresh or frozen fruits–you can make this breakfast more interesting by switching up the fruits you use each time you make it.
- Add greens to your smoothie. Greens are packed with vitamins and minerals, and they’re especially good for you if you don’t get enough leafy greens in your diet. They also provide plenty of fiber and antioxidants–that’s why they’re often referred to as “superfoods.”
- Add protein powder for extra nutrition. Protein powders are easy ways to add more protein into your diet without having to worry about what else is added (or missing). They come in many flavors and forms, so there’s something for everyone!
- Add fruit for sweetness and fiber. Fruits contain fiber, which helps keep blood sugar levels stable; plus they taste great! Try adding berries or mangoes if possible because these fruits have high levels of antioxidants called polyphenols that may help prevent cancer development over time by slowing down cell damage caused by free radicals in our bodies’ cells due to inflammation or mutation when damaged cells divide rapidly without repairing properly first before dying off normally like normal mature cells do every day under ideal conditions where nothing goes wrong during their life cycle stages so far away from any pathogenic factors affecting them negatively e.,g viruses infections bacteria parasites etc…
Broiled grapefruit and avocado toast
- A half grapefruit, halved and seeded
- 1/2 avocado
- 1 tsp. olive oil
- 1 slice whole-wheat bread (or gluten-free)
- Preheat broiler on high. Place grapefruit halves on a baking sheet, skin side up; drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Broil until caramelized in spots and tender when pierced with a knife or fork, about 3 minutes per side depending on how ripe your grapefruits are (they’ll be more juicy when they’re not fully ripe). Leave them in the oven for 2 additional minutes if you like them extra charred! Set aside to cool slightly before topping with avocado slices and another sprinkle of salt + pepper if desired–we recommend doing so because this combo is delicious!
