Did you know breakfast is the perfect time to get most of your nutrients such as fiber, protein, carbs, and mono- and polyunsaturated fats? Breakfast should be easy, quick, and taste really good. Don’t you agree? Giving your body the healthy start it needs and keeps you feeling satisfied and ready for the day.
Begin your day with one of these 7 tasty options
- Baked Sweet Potato: Cut in half and top with a few spoonsful of your favorite unsalted nut or seed butter—peanut, almond, cashew, or sunflower. I like to sprinkle a little ground cinnamon for added flavor. One cup provides 180 calories.
- Food Heaven Made Easy Curry Roasted Potato Breakfast Bowl: Had enough sweet breakfast meals? This savory and delicious breakfast bowl by Wendy and Jessica (registered dietitian nutritionists) is packed with flavor and nutrition. Black beans are an excellent source of fiber, protein, and folate. Beans have a number of health benefits, including reducing cholesterol, decreasing blood glucose levels, and increasing healthy gut bacteria.

- Farmer Cheese: This tangy flavor cultured soft cheese is packed with probiotics. Plus, high in protein and low in fat and calories. Mix with fresh mango, peaches, pineapple, or papaya for added sweetness.
- Mini Breakfast Pizza: Portable and kid-friendly. Grab two toasted whole-grain English muffins and top with pizza sauce, scrambled eggs, and shredded Italian cheese. Don’t forget to sprinkle with oregano.
- Gluten-Free Creamy Breakfast Millet: Tired of oatmeal? Try another whole grain—millet. It’s high in antioxidants and fiber. Add berries, chia seeds, and sliced almonds. Cooking millet for breakfast is easy and the texture is somewhere between rice pudding and oatmeal.
- Breakfast Bean Burrito: A simple and satisfying vegan meal. All you need is black beans, spinach, peppers, tomatoes, and sliced avocado wrapped in a whole wheat tortilla. Salsa is optional.
- Vegan Lentil Soup: I can eat lentil soup at any time of the day. Lentils are a great source of vegetarian protein. Add chopped carrots, celery, and fire-roasted tomatoes to canned lentils. Look for low-sodium or no salt added canned lentils.
