Healthy breakfast recipes aren’t just for Stepford wives get up at 5am to start cooking. No, a healthy breakfast is also within reach of we normal folk who are still rubbing our eyes while gulping coffee at 7am.
Today, I’m sharing a massive collection of easy healthy breakfast recipes just to prove this point. Sure, you might not be able to make all 47 recipes on this list, but chances are at least 2-3 of them will suit your fancy (and your degree of willingness to actually prepare food in the morning).
In fact, quite a few of them can be made ahead of time, so all you have to do in the morning is grab and go!
Can you tell I’m not a morning person? 😉
If you happen to be one, I promise I have nothing against you.
But for me personally, morning is solely about survival. And having healthy breakfast recipes handy is exactly what I need in my survival kit. (Well, that and my stainless steel percolator — because coffee).
Plus, if your brain isn’t quite running at full speed in the morning (like mine doesn’t), these recipes are sorted into nifty categories for you.
So if you want bread or fruit or eggs or a smoothie or if you’re one of those people who actually eats veggies for breakfast, we’ve got you covered.
