Healthy and easy breakfast ideas that are quick to make

One of the things I struggled with the most in the beginning of my healthier lifestyle was finding some interesting, tasteful breakfast that didn’t take up a lot of my time, and that I could easily bring with me to work. 

Here are my 3 best healthy breakfast ideas:

Overnight Chia Pudding

This is honestly one of my favourite go-to-breakfast. It is perfect, as you can make it in literally 5 minutes, it is filling and tastes great. 

When I first started out making chia pudding, I had ar hard time getting the consistency right. I started out with using almond milk, which I have now switched to skyr, which I sometimes add a dash of milk to, to make it just the perfect consistency wise!

Recipe (serves 1): 

  • 2 tbsp chia seed
  • 1,5 dl Skyr yoghurt (whichever taste you enjoy). You can also use regular low-fat yoghurt if you don’t have access to skyr. 

Top with:

  • 1 handfull of blueberries (or whichever fruit you have).

Start by adding the chia seeds in a glass with a lid. Add 0,5 dl of the yoghurt and mix thoroughly. Add the rest of the yoghurt and mix again. Set in fridge overnight and top with fresh blueberries in the morning. 

On The Go Oatmeal

An oldie but goodie!
Oatmeal is a great choice if you are having a late lunch and need the extra fibres to get your morning going! I eat this exact recipe 3-4 times a week. It is super easy and tastes good – considering it is oatmeal!

Recipe (serves 1):

Mix the following in a microwave safe bowl:

  • 1 dl oatmeal
  • 2 dl water/low fat milk (depending on your liking)
  • Small pinch of salt
  • Small pinch of cinnamon (cinnamon is great for your digestion)
  • 1 small handfull dried cranberries

Cook in the microwave for 2 minutes. 

Tip: add a tsp maple sirup if you need it sweetened. It is healthier than regular sugar and tastes grat combined with the cranberries. 

Smoothie Bowl

A smoothie bowl is perfect for the weekends, when you have a little more time on your hands. They are also super fun to decorate! I have one almost every weekend 😛

You can basically make them out of anything. My personal favourite is a sweet berry bowl with lots of antioxidants. 

Tip: If you don’t like the seeds in the blackberries you can replace them with strawberries, but this gives an even sweeter blend. 

Recipe (serves 1): 

Blend the following: 

  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 75 g fresh blueberries
  • 50 g fresh blackberries
  • 1/8 fresh pineapple (you can also use frozen)
  • 1 dl coconut milk / almond milk (depending on your liking)

Top with:

  • 1 small handfull fresh blueberries
  • 1 small handfull fresh blackberries 
  • 1/2 passion fruit
  • 1 tbsp oats
