Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. After spending six to eight hours sleeping your body needs to wake-up, and your metabolism needs to get going. Eating a well-balanced meal that nourishes your body is the best way to start your day. Here are a few breakfast ideas to get you started. All you have to do is wake up ten minutes earlier, and devote that time to cooking something scrumptious.
Pancakes are one of the most delicious breakfast foods on the planet, but they are not the healthiest. Traditional pancakes are made with flour, milk, vanilla, some baking powder, and a bit of sugar. Then they are drenched in maple syrup. All of that sugar tastes great, but it is not very healthy. Oatmeal pancakes are the healthy alternative to your favorite breakfast food.
To make these you will need to have some pre-made oatmeal and an egg. You mix the egg into the oatmeal which acts as a binding agent. Then you can simply mold the mixture into a pancake sized patty, and fry it up with some coconut oil. These are perfect for people who are gluten intolerant, and those that want to stay away from dairy. Don’t forget to add some fresh fruit and honey on top, when they are flipped out of the pan.
Avocado Egg Boats
Everyone knows about avocado toast, but have you ever seen an avocado egg boat? Toast tends to contain gluten and a lot of carbohydrates which are not conducive for those trying to lose weight. The avocado egg boat is a healthy alternative that combines avocado and egg without the bread.
These are simple to prepare. All you have to do is slice an avocado in half, remove the pit, and crack an egg in the hole where the pit was. Then place the avocado and egg combo on a baking sheet, sprinkle some salt and pepper on top, and leave it to bake for about 10 minutes, or until the egg is at the desired consistency.
Strawberry and Vegetable Smoothies
Fruit smoothies are one of the easiest breakfast meals to prepare. All you need are your favorite fruits, some ice to froth it up, and a bit of fruit concentrate. But like traditional pancakes, there is a lot of sugar found in fruit and juice. Smoothies with a strawberry base will taste sweet naturally, and there are a lot of low sugar vegetables that can be included for a healthier breakfast smoothie.
Some of the best veggies to add to a strawberry smoothie are cauliflower and zucchini. Neither of them have a lot of flavor on their own, but they are packed full of nutrients.
