Quick Clean Eating Breakfast Ideas – The Most Important Meal of the Day!
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I am sure you’ve heard this before. It’s true. Benefits of eating breakfast include more energy, better attention span (great for students or people going to work meetings!), more alert + productive, helps you maintain a healthy weight, helps you reach your daily nutrition goals and it shows a good example for your kids. These are all true if you eat a HEALTHY breakfast – clean eating breakfast only! No sugary cereals, no donuts! A real healthy clean eating breakfast filled with good nutrients can change the way you feel everyday. If you find yourself eating badly in the mornings, change your habits to good ones for a couple weeks and see the change.
If you’re confused where to start – don’t worry, I am here to help.
I’ve listed below 4 quick clean eating breakfast ideas you can add to your week and reuse them throughout the rest of the week, too. These recipes are Paleo, Vegetarian and can be Gluten-Free if you sub the toast for gluten free toast and make sure the oats are gluten free. They are all easy to make and won’t take you long. The Baked Egg in Avocado takes the longest to cook – but just prepare it in under 2 minutes, place in the oven and go do your makeup or something while it’s cooking! Hope you enjoy these ideas. What are your favorite easy and healthy clean eating breakfast ideas?
Baked Egg in Avocado:
- 1 avocado, pitted
- 2 eggs
- salt & pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 425F. Crack the first egg in a bowl, then pour gently into the hole of one of the avocado halves. Do the same for the 2nd egg. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 10-15 minutes, depending on how cooked you like your eggs. Enjoy.
Whole Grain Toast with Nut Butter, Raisins, Banana and Walnuts:
- 1 slice whole grain bread, toasted (I love Dave’s Killer Bread!)
- 1-2 TBSP nut/seed butter (peanut, almond or sunflower)
- 1 banana (peeled and sliced)
- 1 TBSP raisins (I prefer golden, but it’s your choice! – and Craisins can be good too!)
- 1 TBSP chopped walnuts
Spread the nut butter on the toast. Layer the banana slices, raisins and walnuts all over the bread and enjoy! You could double this and have two slices if you want, too.
- 1 banana (peeled)
- 1 apple (cored and sliced)
- 3 dates (pitted)
- 1 TBSP nut/seed butter (peanut, almond or sunflower)
- 2 TBSP ground flaxseed meal
- 1/2 cup dry oats
- 1 cup spinach
- 1 cup water
Blend it all up, add some ice if you want. Enjoy this thick and hearty smoothie. It should fill you up for a while!
Apple Spice Oatmeal:
- 1/2 cup dry oats
- 1 cup water
- 1 apple (cored and diced to small pieces)
- 1/2 TBSP chopped walnut
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp coconut sugar or agave
- 1/4 cup almond milk (or milk of your choice)
Cook the oats with the water about 5 minutes. Place diced apple into your bowl and top with piping hot oats. This will help warm them up and soften them a bit. I then add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl, stir and enjoy!
Thats a really helpful post. I dont know if I could do warm avocados tho.. and with an egg in it?? 😀
