How could you go wrong with the classic breakfast burrito? There are different variations to every burrito, but a good place to start is to have a tortilla (wholemeal for extra healthy points), eggs, spinach, sausage, shredded cheese, chipotle paste, halved cherry tomatoes, and just a couple slices of avocado ready to go. This meal is full of fiber and nutrients, which is perfect for a morning starter.
Avocado toast with egg
One of the easiest and simplest recipes! Toast your whole grain bread to crispy perfection and spread a good amount of avocado on each piece. You can choose to add on scrambled or fried eggs, as well as sliced cherry tomatoes, salsa, arugula, and a pinch of salt. Considerably filling and packed with proteins, avocado toast is great for early and long mornings.
Another super customizable staple, overnight oats only takes five minutes of your time. Before you go to bed, combine rolled oats, milk, yogurt, chia seeds, and maple syrup for your base. Leave the jar in the fridge overnight and loosen up your concoction with a bit more milk if you’d like, then get to topping! Bananas and strawberries are popular choices, but you can also try out mixed berries, honey, cinnamon, and even peanut butter! It’s an all-in-one source of antioxidants, protein, and vitamins.
Healthy breakfast hash
Last but not least, the breakfast hash is the best for those with leftover veggies in the fridge. Cube up a couple of potatoes and sauté them in a skillet with olive oil; add in diced onion, garlic powder, green bell pepper, and paprika for tasty seasoning and garnish with some parsley. You can also fry an egg and throw in slices of avocado to complete the meal. This recipe is high in protein and low in calories, so those watching their health are sure to enjoy.
