Healthy Breakfast Ideas

Breakfast preference can vary from person to person, some prefer good old porridge oats or Weetabix which is good. These are higher in carbohydrates and fibre then some prefer a higher protein start to their day which will keep them fuller for longer. 

A good healthy and high protein go-to breakfast could be mashed avocado and a poached egg on seeded bread or a mushroom egg omelette and some even might opt for steak and asparagus if time of on their side.

Whether you choose a high carbohydrate or high protein breakfast is whatever works from person to person but the most important thing to remember is choose something healthy.

Avoid cereals like Granola, Cheerios and Nutella on toast. These are high in sugar and not the best start to the day. 

Granola is a go-to cereal when people are doing their best to be healthy, when I fact it's high in sugar. Try sugar free muesli if this is your go-to breakfast. its a healthier choice.

Weetabix and Oats are a great choice, just be careful what you top them with. A spoonful of honey is fine, fresh fruit or even a teaspoon of peanut butter. Try to use a 100% peanut butter so there is no added sugar, salt and palm oil.

Here are a couple of quick recipes if you like an eggy breakfast
