7 Tasty, Healthy and Easy to Prepare Breakfasts

If you’re not already aware, regular and healthy breakfasts are essential for your health. However, many people rarely eat healthy breakfasts, and some don’t even eat breakfast at all.

Eating a healthy, whole-food, and plant-based breakfast is the first step to support your health, especially in combating all weight issues and diabetes.

Every year, when school begins, we have thoughts about what we can send our kids with to school to nourish the bodies and minds. If you would like more ideas on how to do this, check out last years post titled: Practical Back-To-School Tips for Healthy Children

With all of this in mind, I wanted to give you some more tasty and healthy choices for super energy boosting and weight loss, promoting breakfasts. 

Please pay no attention to the calorie content of these breakfasts but rather to their nutrition content. Nutrient-dense foods will provide your body with nourishment for longer and will remove cravings for non-beneficial weight gain-promoting foods.

So here are 7 more healthy breakfast options:

1. Organic Puffed Oat Cereal

The most straightforward breakfast is always cereal. However, regular cereal is usually filled with sugar, often much more than the daily recommended dosage. It’s far healthier to consume oats, and a different version to the oats we are used to, are puffed oats made from 100% whole grain oats. They don’t contain sugar or any other unnecessary and unhealthy additives. They are filling and fiber-rich and fun to eat. Simply add your favorite plant-based milk, and you are set to go. Just beware of not adding a plant-based milk that is laden with added sugars as then your health goals will not be reached.

2. Chickpea Omelet

A chickpea omelet is an egg-free, healthy plant-based omelet made from chickpea flour, nutritional yeast, and other natural flavorings. The omelet is incredibly nutritious due to all the health benefits chickpeas have. 

You may add vegetables like tomatoes to it, or some hot sauce or plain sesame seed paste. The base of the omelet is the same, and these additional flavorings are entirely up to you. (See recipe below)

3. Ancient Middle Eastern Breakfast Beans

This traditional Middle Eastern breakfast is not that simple to prepare, but if you use frozen, or canned beans, it becomes practically effortless.

Dried, canned or frozen fava beans can be used for this recipe. When using dried beans, you will need to soak them overnight and then cook them until they are tender (about 1 hour). Usually, these fava beans are served on a bowl of hot hummus with garlic, lemon, cumin, paprika, and sea salt seasoning. They may be served with: 

A sliced hard-boiled egg, sliced ripe red tomato, raw onion sliced into quarters, fresh chopped parsley or cilantro, green chili pepper on the side and tahini sauce. 

This breakfast is such a satisfying, healthy, and delicious dish. I love this breakfast!  

4. Toast with Peanut Butter

If you’re going to make this incredibly simple yet delicious breakfast, you should make sure to use wholemeal bread and natural peanut butter. It’s vital that the peanut butter is 100% peanuts to get all the health benefits that peanuts have without added oils, sugars and chemical additives common in brand names. I also recommend buying peanut butter in a glass jar for your health. You can substitute the peanut butter for 100% almond butter as well. This tastes great with strawberry jam as well. (See recipe below)

5. Fruit Salad

You can’t go wrong with a fruit rich breakfast. Besides being healthy, this breakfast is both delicious and easy to prepare. You may even make it the night before and store it in the fridge to eat it cold in the morning. You can make this breakfast using any fruits you like. If you wish to add a little flavor and to make the fruits soften faster, add some freshly squeezed orange juice to the fruit salad.

6. Cauliflower baked Hash-browns

Most breakfast hash-browns use potatoes, but this recipe uses cauliflower instead, making it incredibly delicious. 

To make the meal tastier, you can add your favorite seasonings. I recommend trying turmeric and avocado. 

7. Quinoa Bowl

A quinoa bowl is an easy meal to prepare. It takes about 15 minutes. Once you have cooked the quinoa and allowed it to cool, add some soft tofu cubes, peas, chopped parsley, chopped cilantro, salt, pepper, a dash of olive oil, the juice from half a lemon and roasted pumpkin and sunflower seeds. Mix all ingredients together, and you have the tastiest breakfast quinoa.

There you have it, seven more healthy and tasty breakfast ideas. The recipes are below:

Ancient Middle Eastern Breakfast Beans 

Ingredients

  • 2 cups peeled and cooked, frozen or canned fava beans 16 oz
  • olive oil
  • 1/2 onion minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, raw
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Juice from 2 fresh lemons

Instructions

  1. If cooking dried fava beans, soak them overnight. Drain the water and then boil for 1 hour with 10 fresh cups of water per 1 pound of dried fava beans. Add 1 tablespoon salt for every 10 cups of water. Bring to boil and then simmer for 1-2 hours.
  2. After cooking, you may wish to peel them. If not, the I would suggest cooking them for an hour longer to ensure they are soft enough.
  3. If using canned fava beans, pour them into a strainer to drain. Rinse the beans in cold water.
  4. In a large pan, heat 1 tbsp olive oil over medium heat. Fry the diced onion for about 1 minute. Add the crushed garlic and cumin, sauté for 1 more minute. Add the fava beans to the pan, then add about ½ cup of water to the skillet. Bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low, season with ½ tsp salt and 1/8 tsp pepper to taste. Cover the pan.
  5. Simmer for 10 minutes on medium heat until the beans are nice and tender. Remove lid and cook until the liquid most of the liquid is gone.
  6. Pour the fava bean mixture into a mixing bowl. Squeeze in the lemon juice. Mash the mixture to a semi-smooth consistency using a fork.
  7. Serve each portion on a plate of hot hummus. Garnish with the coriander, paprika and cumin.
