6 Quick And Healthy Breakfast Ideas
Two-Ingredient Banana Pancakes
Two-ingredient banana pancakes are a very quick and healthy alternative to the original. They have the same texture as regular pancakes, but you can definitely taste the banana so if you’re not a big fan of bananas you may want to skip this one.
Serving Size: 1-2
Time: 10 minutes
Step 1: Using a blender, mix 2 eggs with one banana. These are your two main ingredients. If you want to add a bit more flavor or fluff, try adding a spoonful of any of the following to the mix:
- Greek yogurt
- Almond butter
- Almond Milk
- Peanut butter
Step 2: Once everything is blended, pour your mix into a bowl or cup.
Step 3: Add only a spoonful of the mix to your pan for each pancake because they will expand to at least three times the size
Step 4: Cook on medium for a few minutes until the edges look a little dark, then flip!
Step 5: Top with berries, fruit, cinnamon, yogurt, honey, jam, granola, nuts or anything else you want and enjoy guilt-free! You can also buy all natural (nothing added) maple syrup and add a spoonful of that too!
Smoothie bowls taste amazing and are so filling when you add the right ingredients. I will be providing my own recipe, but there are many other ways to make smoothie bowls! Basically just make your favorite kind of smoothie and then add granola, berries, nuts, seeds and anything else you like.
Serving size: 2
Time: 5 minutes
Step 1: Using a blender, mix the following:
- 1 package of Acai (can be bought at whole foods or ordered online)
- A handful of blueberries
- 3 large strawberries
- 1 small-medium size banana
- 1 tablespoon all natural peanut butter.
- 2-3 ice cubes
Step 2: Pour smoothie into a bowl and top with:
- Chia Seeds
- Hemp seeds
- Flax seeds
- Cacao Nibs
Step 3: ENJOY
Greek Yogurt with honey, berries and walnuts
When you get the right kind of greek yogurt, it is full of protein. Read the ingredients on the back of the label to make sure there is no artificial sugar, syrup or other junk added!
- 1 banana
- Your choice of nut butter
- Honey (Optional)
Peel your banana and spread a medium layer of nut butter around it evenly (I chose peanut butter). Then pour granola on a plate and roll the banana in it.
From here you can either slice the banana into 6-8 pieces and enjoy, or you can wrap it in tinfoil and let it sit in the fridge for a bit to harden and taste more like a cold treat when you take it out to eat later.
You can also try this same technique with Nutella or other spreads!
Avocado toast is an obvious one.
Spread cream cheese, goat cheese, or any other cheese of your choice on your toast.
Put some avocado in a ziplock bag and mash it with your hands. Then cut a tiny hole at a bottom corner of the bag and squeeze the avocado out and onto the toast.
Cut up some onions, tomatoes and peppers to put on top, or sprinkle some spices, salt and garlic.
Top it off with a fried egg or egg of any style!
