10 healthy breakfast ideas

Jump-start your metabolism and perk up your day with these healthy and delicious breakfast ideas.

A wholesome breakfast sets your day in motion. It equips your body with the nutrients it needs to kick off your morning feeling healthy and energized.

But wholesome doesn’t have to mean plain or boring. You can still have a delish breakfast to fuel you up for the day ahead that’s packed with the good stuff . We’ve found 10 healthy and tasty breakfast ideas you would totally wake up for in the AM, with a glass of SkinnyMint Morning Boost Tea on the side.

Breakfast Burritos

This low-fat, high-protein breakfast uses whole-wheat tortillas and egg whites (instead of whole eggs). To amp up the flavor, add a sensible scoop of salsa for a true-blue Mexican dish. Alternately, opt for Greek yogurt for an additional protein boost.

Grain-Free Protein Crepes

One serving of these grain-free protein crepes contains 189 calories, nine grams of fat, 13 grams total carbs (five grams of net carbs), eight grams of fiber and 14 grams of protein — enough to fill you up until lunch time. The perfect base for anything sweet or savoury, these crepes double up as a lunch dish too.

Cauliflower Hash

If you’re in for something light and savoury, try this. Featuring ‘super-food’ cauliflower, it feeds your body with a remarkable range of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Add a shot of runny yolk for essential fatty acids DHA and AA.

Apple Sandwiches with Almond Butter and Granola

Replace your classic peanut butter sandwich for this healthier alternative that also packs an equal amount of protein punch. Perfect as mid-day snacks as well, these quick breakfast fixes will no doubt be a popular breakfast choice for the young and old.

Skinny Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Shake

This decadent indulgence delivers a blast of delicious protein.

Due for a power-packed workout later? This decadent indulgence is made with frozen bananas, thick Greek yogurt, creamy peanut butter, cocoa powder (we recommend substituting with chocolate protein powder), and vanilla almond milk for a blast of delicious protein.

Egg Muffins with Sausage, Spinach and Cheese

Similar but smaller than frittatas, it gives you the protein, green nutrients and dairy you need in one bite-sized treat. They can also stay fresh for a few days. So if you don’t have time to make breakfast on a weekday morning, make these on Sunday instead. These egg muffins make great grab-and-go breakfast snacks.

Breakfast Popsicles

Popsicles for breakfast? Why, yes! With summer beckoning, these breakfast popsicles are perfect for when it gets too warm to whip up a hot breakfast meal. All you need is non-fat yogurt, your favorite fruits, and you’re set. Dip it in granola for extra crunch.

Pumpkin Flax Waffles

A healthier alternative to original waffles, these fiber-rich and protein-rich waffles made from whole wheat flour and flax seed meal make for a hearty, tummy-filling breakfast. Top off with organic maple syrup and sprinkle with pecans for their heart-healthy benefits.

Skinny Crustless Quiche

This breakfast classic now comes with a healthy twist. Without crust, you are cutting out a lot of unnecessary carbs and calories. High-protein, low-carb and incredibly delicious, you’ll also be getting a lot of nutrition from this flavourful quiche. Make, store and reheat for the week ahead!

Vanilla-Almond Chia Breakfast Pudding

We never say no to a colourful explosion of breakfast pudding. Created with ultra-antioxidant chia seeds, almond milk and fresh seasonal fruits, this wholesome breakfast not only tastes great, it also fills and fuels you up for an energetic start to the day. Keep it refrigerated for a cold, refreshing treat.
