Healthy Breakfast Ideas

When you first embark on a weight loss or healthy eating plan, starting the day with a healthy meal sets the tone for the rest of the day.

There is a false assumption that skipping breakfast promotes weight loss or is key to a healthy diet. However, studies show that eating breakfast every day actually keeps the metabolism working at optimum speed, which is key to maintaining a healthy weight.

While some people can stick to the same breakfast every day, those of us who follow any sort of diet NEED some variety. With so many options out there, it’s hard to navigate what is healthy and what is not.

What is the healthiest breakfast to have? 

A healthy breakfast is one that has adequate calories to keep you going for several hours and hits the main macronutrients- protein, fat, and fiber. This combination promotes fat burning and also keeps hunger at bay.

My favorite easy healthy breakfast which ticks all those boxes is toast with avocado and eggs.

The Ingredients.

  • Bread– While any bread works (including low calorie bread or keto bread), the healthiest kinds are high in fiber and slow digesting. These include wholegrain bread, sourdough bread, or bread that has nuts and seeds mixed through. 
  • Avocado– The ‘healthy fat’ proportion of this breakfast. Half a medium avocado contains 15 grams of heart healthy fats and 10 grams of fiber. 
  • Salt, pepper, and lemon juice– To mix with the avocado to add extra flavor. Alternatively, you can make guacamole
  • Eggs– The protein portion! One large egg has 7 grams of protein and the healthiest ways to cook them are pan fried, boiled, or poached. 
  • Seasonings– To taste. 

The Instructions. 

Start by lightly toasting your bread. While it is toasting, prepare the avocado. In a small bowl, mash the avocado until mostly smooth. Add the salt, pepper, and lemon juice and mix until combined. Spread it over the toast. 

Now, fry, poach, or soft boil your egg. Once cooked, add it over the avocado toast. Sprinkle with your favorite seasonings and serve immediately. 

Storing, freezing, and meal prepping instructions

  • To store: Bread and avocado mix can be stored in the refrigerator, covered, for up to 3 days. Boiled eggs will keep for up to one week.
  • To freeze: Bread can be frozen for up to six months in a ziplock bag. Do not freeze the cooked eggs or avocado.
  • To meal prep: For one week, boil five eggs and have three avocados on hand. Ensure there are at least 5 slices of bread ready to be toasted.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should you not eat for breakfast?

While no foods should be off limits, heavily fried foods and foods loaded with sugar are not the best breakfast options. They will lead to a sugar crash and energy levels will be all over the place.
