I usually just eat cereal for breakfast, which is cheap and easy, but probably not very nutritious. I want to try something healthier, but a lot of the stuff I see online looks complicated/expensive. So what do you busy, healthy bees like to have in the mornings? Thanks!

I do a quick spinach omelette cooked in coconut oil. It takes me maybe 10-15 minutes to make and is really simple, just eggs, cheese and spinach.

I do cottage cheese with fruit most mornings. On the weekends I like to get a little fancier and will make avocado toast on whole grain bread or a chickpea pancake (1 part chickpea flour, 1 part water, season to taste) with avocado and peppers. I also like sweet potato hash browns (shredded in my spiralizer) with sautéed spinach and mushrooms. Sometimes I’ll add chicken sausage if I need some additional protein. I don’t eat eggs, but that’s always a healthy, affordable breakfast option.

wonderwedding : If you like cereal why don’t you try making it healthier? I have my breakfast in work and I usually have greek yoghurt with muesli and occasionally some fruit on top. I only buy more wholesome muesli – so not the kind that is loaded with sugar and then I add various nuts and seeds on top which keeps me full. I know I will never make cooked foods for breakfast as I don’t have the time and I don’t like to eat warm food that early.

If you like cereal, there’s so many ways to make it healthier. Do one part cereal to one part fruit. I like to buy whole grain vanilla granola, and then only use about half a cup of it. Then I’ll add in a ton of chopped fruit, dried fruits, hemp seeds, chia seeds, nuts, and use some unsweetened almond milk. It’s still cereal, but it’s more nutritious.
I also love overnight oats, avocado toast on whole grain bread, and I’ll make my own giant container of instant oatmeal (like my own version of Quaker packets). I’ll use a full container of instant oats, put about half of them in the food processor until they’re finely ground in order to be similar in texture to Quaker oats, add flaxseed meal, and then flavor it however I want. I usually either do dried blueberries and shredded coconut, or dried apples and cinnamon. Then I’ll put a little bit of sugar in the container, and then I’ll have like 6 weeks worth of fairly healthy instant oatmeal.

My go-to quick morning breakfast is a protein smoothie. I use a protein shake, half a banana, 2 tbl of powdered peanut butter + I sneak in a heafty handful of spinach.
If I have time in the morning I will whip up some eggs (I usually do one or two eggs and add 3-4 tbl of egg whites to up the volume) mixed with spinach and any other veggies I have on hand.
If I really don’t have time for any of the above, I grab a protein bar.

wonderwedding : overnight oats! Put equal parts milk, Greek yogurt, and rolled oats in a mason jar, give it a shake, and leave it in the fridge overnight. In the morning add fruit, nuts, honey, or whatever you want.

My go to is a homemade smoother. Usually full of fruit, maybe an avocado, greens (spinach, arugula, kale), yoghurt, nuts (almonds or walnuts usually) and chia seeds. And whatever else I have in the cupboard. Sometimes hemp hearts, flax, dark chocolate if I want sweetness.
Another quick one is plain greek yoghurt, granola (a good healthy granola, alot have waaaay too much sugar!) and fruit

I usually do a big egg bake for the week and slice it into squares and heat up each morning as I run out the door.
8 Eggs, preferred liquid of choice (unsweetened almond milk for me) , bit of cheese, salt and pepper and a whole bunch of veggies (tomatoes, asparagus, onions, peppers, mushrooms.) Bakes for about 45 mins in a 9×9 pan.

I’m busy and healthy, and I eat chocolate pop tarts for breakfast at least 5 days a week.

I have the same thing every day Monday – Friday. I prep them on Sunday and grab in the morning to eat.
150g plain non-fat greek yogurt
1/4c unsweetened applesauce
2 tbsp PB2
If we have them, I slice half of a banana and stir into the above. The other half I’ll eat midmorning when I get hungry.

I do bento boxes for breakfast these days — a hard boiled or scambled egg with some sausage in one compartment; a few pieces of lower carb fruit in the second one (usually berries or melon); and the third compartment changes depending on what I have available. Today it was baby spinach with some olive oil dressing. Sometimes it’s full fat cottage cheese or greek yogurt.
