Mix Up Your Morning - 10 Easy (and Healthy) Breakfast Ideas

Stuck in a breakfast rut? Breakfast may be the most important meal of the day, but it's easy to eat the same thing day in and day out. Mix it up a bit by trying one of these easy, healthy, and satisfying breakfasts.

Peanut Butter Oatmeal: Oatmeal? Yawn. Oatmeal with peanut butter? Now we're talking. Add peanut (or any other nut) butter to your bowl for an extra blast of protein, healthy fats, and flavor.

Yogurt Parfait: Yogurt is a great source of morning protein, as well as many important micronutrients. Turn it up a notch by layering greek yogurt with granola and fruit. Add a sprinkle of greens powder to the top for extra flavor and nourishment.

Homemade Granola: Speaking of granola… Making your own is easier than you think. Making homemade granola puts you in control of flavor and texture, as well as gives you a first-hand look at exactly what goes into your breakfast.

Fruit Smoothie: Knock back a few servings of fruits and veg first thing. Combine bananas, berries, avocado, greens, or anything else you like for an easy and nutritious start to your day.

Breakfast Taco: What's better than tacos for dinner? Tacos for breakfast! Eggs, bacon, sausage, cheese, and other breakfast favorites are perfectly suited for taco shells. Mix and match your favorites (and add in a little salsa) for a fun and delicious meal.

Energy Bites: Energy bites feature a mixture of oats, healthy fats, and add-ins. Mix them together and form into balls for a breakfast that's quick and easy to eat on the go.

Egg and Veggie Scramble: Punch up your scrambled eggs by adding your favorite veggies to the pan. Mushrooms, tomatoes, onions, peppers, and even greens are an easy and delicious addition to this breakfast classic. Don't have time to chop? Sprinkle greens powder over scrambled eggs for the same nutritional effect.

Homemade Breakfast Bars: Make your own breakfast bars for a healthier (and tastier) alternative to store-bought packages. Combine whole grains, nut butters, and your favorite add-ins to customize your ideal breakfast.

Quinoa Muffins: Muffins are delicious, but they're not exactly heavy-hitters when it comes to nutrition. Quinoa muffins, on the other hand, incorporate another layer of fiber, protein, and nutrients. Pair with eggs or a smoothie for a complete breakfast.

Breakfast Casserole: Whether you're feeding a family or prepping for the week, a breakfast casserole is a healthy way to please a crowd. Combine and bake eggs, cheese, protein, and veggies for an easy alternative to playing short order chef.
