Healthy Breakfasts

One thing I've really been focusing on this summer is being healthy. Breakfast is probably my healthiest meal of the day because I love starting off on a good note and getting the energy I need to get my day going. I have a hot coffee with just a little bit of milk each morning (I prefer hot coffee when I wake up and iced coffee in the afternoon!), but I switch up my meals between the options below.

one // toast
Wheat toast with butter is definitely the breakfast that I have the most. In my opinion, it tastes the best with my coffee and I always prefer wheat bread over white. It's a light yet healthy breakfast that always holds over my hunger for a while!

two // yogurt
I eat yogurt a lot, so I always buy big tubs of Chobani vanilla Greek yogurt and a package of Bear Naked vanilla almond granola. This is possibly the best yogurt and granola combo ever. I used to hate Greek yogurt because of the texture and taste, but now I prefer it over regular yogurt!

three // eggs
I'll admit that I'm pretty lazy when it comes to cooking eggs in the morning; I'm still in the process of waking up at that time, so I never really want to stand around a stove for 15 minutes to make eggs. Instead of doing that, I just boil half a dozen or so eggs at the beginning of each week and will eat two boiled eggs for breakfast -- they are delicious!

four // fruit
I love fruit, especially in the summer! When I eat fruit for breakfast, I'll typically eat a granny smith apple with peanut butter (my obsession with peanut butter is extreme!). If I don't have an apple, I'll have a banana or a mix of strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries.

If I'm on the go early in the morning and don't have time to get breakfast from home, I'll usually get breakfast from Dunkin Donuts. However, I still choose the healthier options -- either a large hot coffee dark with skim milk only or a medium iced dark with skim milk only and a low fat blueberry muffin or a multigrain bagel toasted with butter.

What are your favorite healthy breakfasts?

  3. Ashley,
    Great post! I've been really getting into eating healthy again lately, and I'll have to start boiling eggs at the beginning of the week like you do. They're super healthy and high in protein!

  4. I love greek yogurt and granola! I am obsessed with Nothin' but Nola granola!
