5 Healthy Breakfast Ideas to Start Your Day

February 18, 2016 – 06:04 am

In this article, I share some of my personal favorite breakfast ideas, which I eat to give me loads of energy. I find that these breakfast foods help me to create vibrant health, whilst also enabling me to stay strong and create flexibility.

Breakfast #1: Smoothie

Smoothies are my all time favorite breakfast foods. The reason for this is that beyond being delicious, they are very easy to make and are super quick to prepare.

I like the fact that I can whip up a couple of fresh smoothies from real food for both my husband and myself in minutes. You can make smoothies with a few ingredients, little food preparation and absolutely no cooking. Perhaps, the best reason of all is that I left with very few dishes to do as well! (and, first thing in the morning, this is a big bonus!)

If you are really short on time, smoothies can be prepared the night before and whizzed up in seconds just before you are ready to eat. If you need to leave the house early, smoothies make an excellent meal on the go as you can take them with you.

Another great reason to include smoothies in your breakfast routine is that the different variations you can make are limited only by your imagination. Choose from an indulgent chocolate smoothie to a tropical fruit smoothie to an ultra healthy, nutrient-rich green smoothie.

Breakfast #2: Coconut yogurt and fresh fruit

If you love yogurt, but have difficulty digesting it, try coconut yogurt. You can buy it from a health food shop (read the label to make sure you avoid any preservatives or artificial additives) or you can even make your own.

Use coconut yogurt just as you would normal yogurt, and serve it with fresh fruit salad for a lovely, light summer breakfast. I like to sprinkle this breakfast with any super foods that I have on hand. Be adventurous and try different types of superfoods until you find ones that you like. Some of my superfood favorites are Goji berries, seeds and nuts.

Another lovely variation is to grind linseed, sunflower seeds and almonds (also called LSA) in a coffee grinder. This can be stored in a glass jar and used as required. Try sprinkling this over (and into) fruit salad, green salads and even breakfast smoothies. Sprinkling LSA into your diet is good for your immune system, digestive system, skin and liver. It is full of fiber and is rich in essential fatty acids.

For the very brave, top your fruit with superfood green powder such as spirulina, chlorella or barley grass.

Breakfast #3: Bircher muesli

Borrowed from the Swiss, Bircher muesli is a delicious breakfast food (or anytime snack!). Bircher muesli is not cooked and is made from mixing together oats, milk (organic or nut milk), grated apple, apple juice, honey, vanilla, cinnamon and a selection of chopped nuts and seeds.

What I really like about Bircher muesli is that you can make it and store it in the fridge for several days. It makes a tasty, quick breakfast and also is a great snack if you get the afternoon or evening munchies!

    • In theory, if you skip breakfast, you've just asked your body to function from supper from the night before till lunch with no fuel. You will feel sluggish, your body will sap energy from muscles to help maintain your core organs, and while missing a meal once in a while won't kill you, breakfast is the worst meal to skip.
      Like any machine, your body needs and expects regular food/fuel to keep going at an optimal level. When you think about it that way, breakfast makes a lot of sense.
