How to: Have a Healthy Breakfast

I’ve always had trouble getting up early enough to make a breakfast in the morning that will give me enough energy for the day. Since this year has started, I’ve tried to eat more healthy foods.

I was scrolling through Pinterest the other day and found a couple of healthy breakfast recipes that take less than 10 minutes to prepare. You can put together the meal the night before and spend only a couple of seconds topping it off in the morning.

Blueberry Banana Overnight Oats

You will need:

  • 1/3 Cup Oats
  • 1/3 Cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 Cup Almond milk (or milk of your
  • 1/2 Banana
  • ¼ Cup Blueberries
  • Drizzle Maple syrup
  • Dash Granola
  • choice

First, put the blueberries and bananas in a bowl and mash them using the backside of a spoon. Then, add the yogurt, milk and oats. Cover it with plastic wrap and let it sit overnight in the refrigerator. In the morning, add granola, blueberries, banana and drizzle some maple syrup on top. By adding the granola it adds a crunch to the bowl that counteracts the mushiness from the oats and bananas.

Blueberry Cobbler Overnight Oatmeal

You will need:

  • 3/4 cup almond milk (or your choice of milk)
  • 1/2 cup plain low fat greek yogurt
  • 1 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1 1/4 cup old fashioned oats
  • 2tbs baking stevia or splenda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • handful granola

For this recipe, put the blueberries into a bowl and microwave it for 30-60 seconds then use the backside of the spoon to mash them. Next, add the rest of the ingredients and stir them together. Cover it with plastic wrap and let it sit overnight in the refrigerator. This recipe gives you more food than necessary for one morning so I suggest splitting it up so you can save it and eat it throughout the week.

The final recipe is Avocado on Toast. This is something you can make quickly in the morning.

All you need to do for this recipe is toast your bread, spread the avocado across your bread and if you want you can also add salt and pepper to the top. This meal takes no time at all and tastes delicious.

Personally, my favorites were the avocado on toast and the blueberry cobbler overnight oatmeal. The cobbler was my favorite because of the cinnamon and originally, this recipe did not have granola but I think that it adds more flavor and gives the oatmeal a crunch.

Feel free to try out these recipes and let me know what you think in the comments below!
