5 Healthy Breakfast Recipes For Girls On The Go
About a year ago I became an official morning person, it just happened over time as I got older I guess because I use to be "that girl" who would start her day at noon if I could get away with it. Now that I have to be out the door at 5:45AM on some mornings and have more of a jam packed schedule about 4 days out of the week I have grown accustom to finding quick recipes that get me out the door on time but also satisfy my hunger, while staying true to my healthy lifestyle. Here are my top go to breakfast recipes that never let me down on a early morning out the door or lazy Saturday morning.
I love avocado toast, it's one of my favorite things to eat especially with a hard boiled egg or poached egg depending on my mood that day.
- I toast a slice of Ezekiel bread and spread on a little non dairy butter by Smart Balance
- I add a dash of pink Himalayan sea salt then I mash the avocado onto the toast
- I sprinkle on cayenne pepper and top the toast off with an egg, easy and done!
I started getting into overnight oats when I first moved to LA and started my first corporate job after college, back then I was not a morning person. I would come in from work in the evening make my overnight oats in 5 minutes, pop it in the fridge, grab it in the morning and head out the door. Overnight oats are easy to make and keeps you full up until about lunch time, perfect!
- I add half a cup of honey greek yogurt to a mason jar
- Half a cup of steel cut oats
- A splash of almond milk
- Add in a handful of blueberries (technically whatever fruit is available in my fridge at the moment)
- I top off with a small dollop of honey greek yogurt, a drizzle of honey, and sprinkle on chia seeds
Smoothies were my second obsession after overnight oats when I had to learn how to incorporate healthy breakfast routines into my big girl corporate lifestyle. I was hooked on green smoothies but my current obsession is the Golden Milk smoothie, so yummy.
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- ** 1/2 cup of coconut milk (you can only use almond milk if you would like)
- 1 frozen banana
- 1/2 piece of fresh turmeric with the skin peeled (you can also use turmeric powder if you so choose)
- 1/2 piece of fresh ginger with skin removed
- 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon (I also add a dash of cardamom)
- Turmeric is all the rage these days but it has many healing properties such as: Powerful anti-anti-inflammatory, great source of vitamin B6, antioxidant, and dietary fiber
I am a fan of sweet and savory at breakfast time, hence french toast is one of my fav entrees at brunch on the weekends but we know it's not the healthiest choice. However, these protein pancakes fill me up and satisfy my sweet tooth. I found this recipe at isabelsmithnutrition.com.
- 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil (for pan)
- 2 eggs
- 1 banana mashed with fork
- 1/6 cup coconut flour
- Dash of cinnamon (I add a dash of vanilla extract and nutmeg as well)
- Heat pan over medium heat
- Blend ingredients together
- Pour the batter into the ban into either 3'' pancakes or 5'' for larger pancakes
- Cook each pancake for 2-3 minutes on each side
- Top pancakes with either coconut flakes or your favorite fruit!
Honestly out of the list of healthy breakfast recipes this is one that I tend to eat the most when I'm working from home because I need to get rid of the spinach and I have time to actually be over the stove.
- Spray pan with coconut oils for non stick
- 1 clove of garlic chopped
- 1 cup spinach
- 1 onion chopped
- 1/4 cup of chopped of cherry tomatoes
- 1/2 bell pepper, chopped
- 2 egg whites ( I use liquid egg whites)
- Pink Himalayan sea salt and pepper to taste
