Quick, easy and healthy breakfast ideas

Breakfast, the most important meal of the day. Any moment of the day that allows me to eat is pretty important in my opinion but going by the age old advice breakfast is important. It is the first meal of the day and should be something that you like and enjoy. Who wants a boring breakfast day in day out?

When it comes to this meal I generally opted for 1 of 4 options. All are quick and easy to make as well as being healthy. None of them are ground breaking but they are all super tasty.

Overnight Oats


What you will need: Porridge oats, Fage Total 0% yoghurt, mixed berries

These take a total of 5 minutes (if even that) to make. I like to prepare them in a little tupperware box so I can take them to work and chow down on them at my desk with a green tea. All you need to do is layer in porridge oats and Fage Total 0% yoghurt and mixed berries then pop in the fridge overnight.


Baked Berry Oats

These are delicious. Really, really delicious. The full recipe is here so I won’t yack on about it again but they really do taste like a pudding. The cinnamon and  Agave Nectar make it sweet but not over powering for a breakfast. With a spoonful of Fage Total 0% yoghurt and some fresh berries this is filling breakfast option. A major plus of the Baked Berry Oats is that you can make a big batch at the beginning of the week and you are sorted for all your breakfasts for the week.

Tomatoes and mushroom on wheat germ bread

What you will need: tomatoes, mushrooms, garlic, 1x slice wheat germ bread and green pesto.


On to something not oats based! This is more of a weekend breakfast or brunch for me as I don’t have time of a work day to cook up the tomato and mushroom so it is more of a treat breakfast but if you do have time in the morning then rustle this little guy up. I cook off the tomato and mushroom with a little bit of garlic in a pan with some extra virgin olive oil before popping the topping onto some toasted wheat germ bread. If I’m not using butter I like to use some green pesto for a little bit of moisture and added flavour.

Smashed Avocado on wheat germ bread

What you will need: An avocado, 1x slice wheat germ bread, sweet chilli sauce, tomatoes, red onion


I really don’t need to talk you through how to make this. Very easy, mush up your avocado pop it on a slice of wheat germ toast and add your toppings. I like to add a little bit of sweet chilli sauce and some tomatoes cut up or red onion. This is really delicious and very easy to make. Who doesn’t love smashed avocado?!

    I love overnight oats, it’s so handy making it up the night before and just having to heat it up in the morning. I put dried apple slices and cinnamon in mine. Also the smashed avocado on toast looks really good too.
