Let’s be honest, there are some mornings where we are running late, we jump out of bed, throw our clothes on and grab a banana on our way out the door. Luckily, you don’t have to rush through your morning breakfast routine every day. There are tons of easy breakfast options that you can make the night before or in just a few minutes that will get your brain and body ready to handle the day. Breakfast tends to get thrown to the wayside when we get busy, but properly fueling your body for success is one of the best things you can do for your overall health. If you are interested in setting exercise and nutrition goals that fit with your body type and fitness level, come into your local Five Seasons Family Sports Club and meet with one of your fitness and nutrition experts today. Here are three of our favorite easy and healthy breakfast options.
This millennial staple is the perfect mix of delicious flavor and healthy fats to get your brain firing on all cylinders. Avocados are one of the only foods that contain monounsaturated-fat, which is healthy and good for your heart. Avocados are also packed with over 20 different vitamins and minerals, making these tasty little fruits a real powerhouse in the world of breakfast. You can easily pack even more nutrition into your avocado toast by throwing a sunny-side-up egg on each piece of toast. This will add a healthy punch of protein to your breakfast that will help your stomach feel full and ready to take on the day. If portability is more your style you can easily turn your avocado toast into a sandwich and take it with you on the go.
Sweet Potato & Black Bean Breakfast Burrito
Finding the perfect breakfast burrito can be a surreal experience. Not only do burritos make breakfast easy and portable, but you can pack some serious flavor and nutritional value into your wraps. One of our favorite breakfast burritos is made using black beans, baked sweet potato, avocado, eggs, and a dash of your favorite sauce or hot sauce. Hot sauce has been suggested to have health benefits ranging from ramping up your metabolism to helping reduce the signs of aging, but the science on this seems a bit shaky. Either way, you can easily make a dozen of these delicious burritos, wrap them in foil and save them in your freezer for a quick morning getaway.
Berry & Granola Parfait
This tried and true flavor filled breakfast is packed to the brim with nutrients. Yogurt by itself serves as a phenomenal probiotic due to the natural live cultures in it. You can easily take your parfait to the next level by adding antioxidants like blueberries in and delicious strawberries and honey for flavor. You can make a full week’s worth of these delicious breakfast parfaits by making them in a sealable mason jar and storing them in the fridge.
If finding the time in the morning to eat a proper breakfast is hard for you, try these three easy breakfasts. Make these recipes your own by adding in your favorite fruits and vegetables to make them even more delicious! Once you’ve fueled up and are ready to go, come into your local Five Seasons Family Sports Club to burn off some energy and get back in phenomenal shape!
