Want to start your day off with more focus and energy? Make positive and healthy eating choices for breakfast. If you’re on the go, it’s easy to stop at your local coffee shop and grab something on the run, but making your own breakfast in the morning is healthier and better for you. Fortunately, there are some quick breakfasts you can make that are even faster than the drive-thru. Here are 18 fast and healthy breakfast ideas to start your day off with a delicious bang.
Mustard, Avocado, and Dill on a Whole-Wheat Muffin With Boiled Egg
Everything's better with avocado on top—including a warm and toasty whole-wheat English muffin. Some whole-grain mustard and a pinch of dill lend the dish an extra pop of flavor and fragrance. Round it out with a creamy soft-boiled egg, and you've got a real breakfast champion.
Healthy Banana Bread
This whole-wheat banana bread is so moist and delicious, you'd never know it's guilt-free. Unsweetened applesauce replaces oil or butter and, instead of refined sugar, the loaf is sweetened with honey. Bake it over the weekend, then take slices with you on busy weekdays. For a boost of protein, spread with a tablespoon of peanut butter.
Toasted Pistachio Muesli With Apple and Fig
Bake oats, pistachios, poppy seeds, and sesame seeds until the mixture is golden brown, then serve with milk, almond milk, or plain yogurt. Top with sliced apples and figs for an instant upgrade. It's such a beautiful (and tasty) start to your day, you'll be recreating it week after week.
Almond Butter, Yogurt, and Fruit Parfaits
This layered parfait is the perfect on-the-run treat. Chopped roasted almonds add a delightful crunch, and each bite is filled with sweet, juicy fruit. If you're not an almond butter fan, swap in peanut butter or sunflower seed butter. You can also use agave nectar in place of the honey.
