Breakfast is an important start to your day and yet, many people either skip it or go for unhealthy options. Busy mornings means often reaching for cereal or other unfulfilling options that just leave you with a sugar crash in a few hours. You’d be surprised how many wholesome breakfast ideas require very little effort when put into practice. Here are some tips and easy recipes to try.

First, go for whole wheat options when looking for breakfast bagels and muffins. There are many protein-rich options to use as a spread such as peanut butter or almond butter. Top with a chopped banana and chia seeds.. Chia seeds are packed with vitamins and minerals (almost six times more calcium than milk!). Go for a savory route by using cheese and one of our coarse cut pâtés. Incorporate healthy fats such as eggs and avocados. Give your avocado toast a kick with any of our mousses. Give oatmeal a new flavor by making it savory. Prepare as usual with milk or water, but add a pinch of salt and pepper instead of any cinnamon or sugar. Then top with an over-easy or poached egg and sprinkle on a little cheese for an extra tasty treat. For maximum flavor add a touch of our pâté on top. Making scrambled eggs or an omelet? Any of our vegetable pâtés will make an excellent addition.

In a rush? Smoothies make a great portable breakfast full of fruit (and sometimes vegetables!) and other healthy ingredients of your choosing from honey to almond milk to chia seeds. Or go for a smoothie bowl where you can layer fruit, nuts, and more on top.

Food is fuel, and after being asleep all night, we need a major refill come morning. Try these healthy options and watch your energy and mood go up.
