A healthy, good breakfast doesn’t have to take a long time to prepare, provided you have the ingredients. You won’t have to get up earlier if you only stock up on eggs, yogurt, muesli, fruit and vegetables.
Nothing jump starts a day like a tasty, nutritious breakfast. The problem is, by the time you get the kids up, get ready for work and walk the dog, you hardly have the time to make anything, so you only pour some coffee and promise yourself to get up five minutes earlier the next day, to stop for a breakfast bar on your way to the office and to never again skip breakfast. But the next day the history repeats itself and just like that you don’t eat breakfast until Sunday morning, the only day in the week when you go a little crazy in the kitchen and make eggs, bacon, waffles and frothy cappuccinos. Filling as it may be, it’s not necessarily the healthy breakfast you should be eating, and it doesn’t make up for the meals you missed all week.

A healthy, good breakfast doesn’t have to take a long time to prepare, provided you have the ingredients. You won’t have to get up earlier if you only stock up on eggs, yogurt, muesli, fruit and vegetables. Pay attention, however, that the eggs and the produce are from a trusted farm, preferably organic, that the yogurt is plain, natural with probiotics and not some artificially sweetened variety, and that the muesli is full of nutrients and not sugars.

With a simple base you can have a different breakfast each week day, just a matter of good planning and preparation the day before every now and then. The fastest and the simplest is of course muesli you can mix with milk or yogurt. For a little extra flavor and nutritional value you can cut in some bananas or toss in berries, and in one minute you have a delicious breakfast ready. If you’re feeling fancy and have some more time, turn your ingredients into eye pleasing parfait, layering the yogurt, muesli and fruit to your liking.

Another quick and simple way to use fruit is to make a delicious breakfast shake. Once again base on yogurt for some extra thickness, add your favorite fruit and possibly some honey and blend. Shake is your best option when the fruit you like is out of season or when you didn’t have a chance to buy fresh and only have frozen fruit, because you’re still delivering the vitamins and the fruit is not losing anything by being mashed. What is more, you can add extra nutritional value by tossing in some broccoli florets or a couple of leaves of spinach without losing the fruity flavor.

For fans of a savory breakfast eggs are the best choice. You can scramble them, fry them over or boil soft in just a couple of minutes, and if you’re good with planning, you can have them with vegetables, cheese or ham. All you have to do is dice, chop and grate the day before, store the products in the fridge and add to your breakfast. And if preparing takes more time than you anticipated, you can always put your eggs in pita bread and take it to go without worrying that you’ll make a mess on your jacket. So next time you feel like making excuses, better check what’s in the fridge and don’t leave the house without a quick breakfast. You’ll have a better day.
