Before we launch into our breakfast ideas, we want to tell you a bit about the first and most important meal of the day. Did you know that people who eat a regular and healthy breakfast are generally fitter? And that this can support a weight loss journey as well? The reason: a good breakfast kick starts your metabolism. A breakfast fills your energy reserves and helps avoid a blood sugar plummet. This also reduces the likelihood for unhealthy cravings throughout the day.
Don’t like eating in the morning? Then brunch is the perfect happy medium! Brunch combines meals that are ideal for breakfast or lunch. Drinking enough fluids should also start right after you wake up in the morning. Depending on your preference, coffee, tea, a glass of (infused) water or freshly pressed juice will supply your body with important liquids.
Children especially should not skip breakfast, because it helps support concentration and ensures sufficient energy sources.
General Breakfast Tips:
These tips will help you for breakfast outside of the home or on the go
Breakfast can be as diverse and unique as you choose. There are a broad range of quick, healthy and easy options. Whether you're in the mood for sweet or savoury, there's a solution for any mood.
A savoury and healthy breakfast is very doable. Conventional bread made from white flour can be easily swapped out for whole grain alternatives that are higher in fibre and nutrients.
Vegan cream cheese or an avocado spread are a great bread topping. These also contain more flavour than something like butter or vegan butter. Vegetables should also be included: tomatoes, peppers or cucumbers not only add some juiciness to your meal, but are also high in vitamins and minerals.
This healthy recipe is perfect for after a workout.
Toast the bread and cover with your favourite spread. Slice or smash the avocado on top. Add toppings of your choice, a squeeze of lemon and some salt and pepper.
Too late for breakfast but too early for lunch? Then have a healthy brunch!
For this quick recipe, you will need:
Combine vegan cream cheese, creme fraiche, garlic, chives and sliced tomatoes. Spread on your bread and sprinkle chopped basil- Add the salad on top and bake for 15-20 minutes at 220°C in the oven. Serve warm.
Sweet things typically cause a blood sugar spike, followed by an energy crash. How about swapping your chocolate spread or marmalade with a nut butter?
Your protein intake can be easily covered with a yoghurt or Skyr. You can find these in a variety of different flavours.
Brainfoods like nuts can increase your brain performance. Fruit like bananas or berries give you a natural sweetness and supply important vitamins. Healthy breakfast idea: get your daily dose of fruit with our delicious green smoothie.
