With the busy lives that we lead nowadays, it can be a real challenge keeping up with a daily routine that’s healthy and productive. That’s why many people decide to forego having breakfast. As you might have heard before, breakfast is an essential meal, especially for children whose bodies are developing at a rapid pace.
If you want to make sure that you feed your family healthy meals and that you manage to whip something up for breakfast every day without losing too much time, you should consider reading the following list.
It goes without saying that you can’t have a smoothie every day (because you might get bored), but you ought to consider having one for breakfast at least once a week. For one, it requires little to no effort, and the neatest thing about it is that it is delicious, nutritious, and packed with loads of minerals and vitamins you might not get from other sources.
We suggest making smoothies from fruit (be it fresh or frozen) and yogurt. Keep in mind that yogurt is very healthy as it is a fermented food, which means that it has loads of healthy bacteria for your gut.
Avocado is loaded with healthy fats, and several vitamins and minerals, too. It’s consumed in large amounts by vegans and vegetarians, so that should give you a pointer as to whether it’s healthy or not. Go for whole-grain bread to make sure that you get the right amount of fiber. You can add anything you want to avocado toast from fresh veggies to seeds and even a sunny-side up egg.

The slow cooker is one of humankind’s greatest inventions, and that’s because it calls for little to no effort on the part of the cook.
All you have to do is place the ingredients and condiments in the appliance before you go to sleep and you’ll have a healthy breakfast when you wake up. You can use anything you want from veggies, sausage, cheese, as well as cream and eggs, depending on your regular diet. The same appliance can be utilized to cook things like beans, which might require a lot of boiling on the stovetop otherwise.
Creative things with tortillas
Unless you have Mexican roots, in which case you probably know what to do with tortillas, you might have to use your imagination to whip something up that’s creative and delicious. One treat loved by children is a banana and Nutella tortilla, which is very easy to make. All you have to do is layer the chocolate spread on the tortilla and then wrap a banana into it.
Besides, you don’t even have to bother with getting store-bought flatbread or making it in your pan. You can get a machine for tortillas that can help you save a lot of time and effort.
Egg breakfast muffins
If you have several silicone muffin pans, you can cook frittata in them without all the oil. You can add anything you want to the whisked egg, like spinach, cheese, or bacon. You’ll have to keep them in the oven for fifteen to twenty minutes, depending on how you like them done.
