My Healthy Breakfast Ideas That I Love






I am a huge food lover, wether it is Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner.This Post is about healthy breakfast ideas that I love most.
Breakfast is so important part of your meal, if I skip it I find myself snacking so much more throughout the day.
I don’t really experiment with breakfast recipes, I know what I like and that is what I stick to. I managed to loose weight keeping up with just making healthier choices. I am going to mention my most favourite ones, those are so simple that you might already know all of them well. 


Forest Fruit Overnight Oats

My first breakfast choice is great if you are busy in the morning as you can eat it on the go, traveling, commuting, in the office or just make it because its soo delicious. It actually tastes like a fruit crumble dessert but its sooo healthy.
You can actually use any fruit you have at home for this but frozen fruit is the best as it softens over night and the juices make the whole thing taste amazing.

This breakfast has to be prepared night before but it only takes 5 minutes to prepare its so easy.

Prepare yourself on the counter some dry oats, frozen fruit of your choice, vanilla light yogurt or any type would do really but my favourite is vanilla for this recipe. Start layering them into the jar of your choice.
- 1 or 2 tbs of oats first
-1 tbs of yogurt on the top
- next a handful of frozen fruit

Carry on the next layer with oats, follow by yogurt and frozen fruit. Do this until you get to the top of the bowl or a jar you are using. Leave it in the fridge over night and enjoy in the morning. Its too delicious.
You can make different variations for example add just sliced fresh banana instead of the frozen fruit and you can use natural yogurt with some honey. Some people add spoon of peanut butter but I haven’t tried that yet.




Poached or Boiled Egg on Toast

This is our weekend breakfast. I Cant be without a good runny poached egg on toast with couple of slices of bacon for the salty taste if you fancy it.
I don’t have any special pot for the poached egg I only use a pan where I simmer some water.

  • I drop the egg in gently after the water started to simmer and leave for few minutes until the egg is all white. I love it runny so mine doesn’t stay in for long, my husband like bit more done so he leave him in little longer.


There isn’t a special way of doing a poached egg, just don’t let your water to be boiling. It needs to simmer only and once I drop the egg in I put it on low heat to just poach.

  • Same sort of way I love boiled egg. I cook it for 3 minutes only, put it into cold water and peal. Slice it over the hot toast and enjoy.

To spice it up a little use some avocado on toast and place the egg on the top. Yummy...



  • Egg Frittata is also very delicious breakfast choice with vegetables of your choice.

I just saute some veggies that I happen to have at home, such as peppers, mushrooms, sliced courgette. In the meantime, prepare 5 eggs whisked, seasoned with salt and pepper and pour it over the veggies once soft.
 Leave it on the heat for few minutes to cook from the bottom, once done put it under the grill to finish cooking the top. Slice and add to some fresh salad.

Im an egg addict and I love all variations for breakfast poached, boiled, scrambled or omelette. I wish one day I have my own hens for the best tastiest eggs ever.





Porridge

I love porridge but my favourite way of making porridge is in the pan on the stove rather then in a microwave. There is a huge difference in the taste believe it or not.
Don’t get me wrong I still enjoy microwave porridge but if I have a chance to choose, stove porridge is a winner.

About 5tbs of porridge oats and plenty of milk, keep mixing on a low hat until it start to thicken. Thats all to it its probably as quick as microwave but too creamy its just amazing.

Add some frozen or fresh fruit on the top and any toppings really that you like.
We all know that porridge makes us feel fuller for longer and stop us snacking on junk throughout the day. There are so many variations of what you can add to your porridge, just check Instagram or pinterest for some ideas.


Avocado and Smoked Salmon on the Toast

This is soooo simple but sooo delicious breakfast you can make.
I cut avocado in half, using just one half, I cut the inside to slices, I then scoop it out with a spoon straight on the top of the toast. Season with salt.
Top it up with a slice of smoked salmon.
I absolutely love this breakfast, but I don’t have it very often. It's a special occasion breakfast for me.
This is just a tasty breakfast choice all together, with the smoky and salty salmon.




Apple Oat Crumble
This could be done also after dinner as a healthy dessert.
I actually got this recipe of the Instagram. As soon as I seen it I needed to try it. Because anything with apple and cinnamon together just has to be tasty, right? And it bloody is...

-Sauté couple of finely chopped apples for few minutes until softer and moist 
-add 1tsp of cinnamon 
- add oats and few tbs of water so it's not catching to the bottom of the pan
Once the apples are soft enough take it of the heat and add some honey to taste or add yogurt of your choice.
Its delicious!!

I am not a pancake or waffle person so you won’t find those kind of food on here. Those are just a simple breakfast ideas that I enjoy and I managed to loose weight just to make a better healthier choices each day.
Most of the time you don’t really have time to spend a lot of time in the kitchen in the morning as you have work, school runs or other things planned. I am all for the quick and healthy choices when it comes to food.
Hope this was helpful. Please let me know what is your favourite breakfast.
