TP 201903 nutrition 02鈥淏reakfast is the most important meal of the day鈥.

That鈥檚 a sentence that we鈥檝e all probably heard at least a million times by now, starting from our childhood days. And it鈥檚 almost always followed by the lecture about how breakfast means 鈥渂reaking the fast鈥 and that we need to have it like a King.


Rest assured, we know full well by now that we absolutely cannot skip breakfast, and that we always have to have healthy food as the first meal of the day.


But how many of us actually put that into practice?


How many of us actually do spend some time preparing a healthy meal every morning?


Chances are, most of you want to eat a healthy meal, but, of course, there鈥檚 never time. You obviously have places to be at, and things to finish throughout the day. So, you always end up going for easy options for breakfast, like cereal or bread and butter.


So here are 7 easy, quick, healthy and refreshing breakfast ideas for 7 days of the week:


Quinoa breakfast bowl

Healthy meals don鈥檛 always have to be boring. Especially on a Monday, you most likely need a pick-me-up to start the week. Hence, starting with a savoury would be perfect. Even though Quinoa is something that is more often consumed for dinner, you can surprise yourself with a crunchy bowl for breakfast, too. Have it with tender smoked salmon and a fried sunny side up to balance it out. You can also throw in some avocado slices, add a hint of lemon juice to the quinoa bowl, and munch away.

This is a no-cook option for Tuesday when you probably have new plans for the week spelled out on Monday. All you need are a few pieces of 100% whole wheat bread for the toast, goat cheese, peanut butter and apples. Spread one piece of toast with the goat cheese and use peanut butter on the other one. Sandwich them with apple slices, and have it sprinkled with some cinnamon.

By Wednesday, you desperately need another pick-me-up, because it鈥檚 the mid-week and you already feel like you鈥檝e worked for 5 days. So, a carrot cake based oats recipe can be your best incentive to get going. Overnight oats are, of course, super delicious and easy to make. They鈥檝e already soaked up all the best flavours of almond milk overnight sitting in your fridge, and they鈥檒l be nice and soft. Add some carrot shreds and a healthy sweetener, blend them all together, and you have a delicious dessert for breakfast.

TP 201903 nutrition 05Banana protein pancakes

The name says it all. You need some extra nutrition for Thursday. So take a banana and an egg, blend it together and add all the nice flavours, including peanut butter, honey and also cinnamon for a punch. Then all you need to do is, cook the pancake in a skillet and have it with some fruits. The perfect mix of delicious and healthy!

TP 201903 nutrition 06Poached egg and avocado salad

Comes Friday and it鈥檚 time for the end-of-the-work-week breakfast. A salad you鈥檇 think is too light for brekky, but not this one. Poach an egg, or two, first. But if you鈥檙e not in to it, you can also fry it or boil it. Then throw in cherry tomatoes, avocados, lettuce, cooked quinoa, some pistachios for extra crunchiness, and that鈥檚 it. For some drama, place the oozy egg on top of the salad.

TP 201903 nutrition 07Pumpkin granola with yoghurt

It鈥檚 Saturday, you probably have a little more time to spare. So take a cup of rolled oats, a can of pumpkin, some pecans, raisins and yoghurt. You can also add some extra spices for the punch. Mix the oats, pumpkin and pecans, bake them, top them with raisins and have them with yoghurt.

TP 201903 nutrition 08Chocolate peanut butter smoothie

What鈥檚 a breakfast list without a smoothie, right? Sundays are time for extra deliciousness. So, start with some chocolate whey protein powder. Add a banana, almond milk, some flax seeds and also some almond butter. Blend away. Evidently, deliciousness and nutrition is baked right in to it.
