We are currently having lots of spare time. Working from home doesn’t keep us busy all the time and this is a fact!
Maybe some can start learning how to cook, as this is the perfect timing. Others can learn new recipes, so they don’t have to complain anymore about being fed up with cooking the same things every week.
Although this situation is very difficult for us, it also has positive sides. We have more time to spend with our loved ones. Parents are actually spending more quality time with their kids, which is very helpful on strengthening that family bond.
During this period, we won’t have the possibility to be on the move, like we were used to. Staying home means that time to time we might crave for some junk food, but we shouldn’t let it be a custom. That is why we should use this opportunity on learning new healthy recipes.
We are not mentioning any specific diet, but the only crucial thing is that we have to change our routine and start a healthy lifestyle AND a healthy lifestyle always starts with breakfast. We now have plenty of time to learn new recipes as there are thousands and thousands of recipes for a healthy breakfast.
Below we suggest some healthy breakfast ideas, which can be prepared very fast. Well, if you want to achieve your body goals, maybe it is time you start paying more attention to what you eat during the day and the portions you consume.
- Quinoa Fruit Salad
Fresh fruits and quinoa is the fastest breakfast ever. Just pick your favorite fruits, especially the seasonal ones and add a scoop of quinoa. For a better taste you can add some honey and lime. We suggest you add Maluka honey, which is the best.
- Avocado Toast with Eggs
Avocado is very healthy, so you basically use it everywhere. You can add it in your salad, in your sandwich and also as your first choice for breakfast. Get two thin slices of whole-grain bread and top them with smashed avocado. You can add also salt and pepper on top if you do not enjoy the taste of smashed avocado and put on top the fried eggs. Voila, you have a breakfast made of proteins.
If you totally dislike eggs, you can leave the toast only with avocado and you will be just fine.
3. Blueberry muffins
Forget about muffins with chocolate or lots of sugar inside. If you want to eat healthy, it is time you play with your imagination a little bit and start preparing muffins the healthy way. We suggest blueberry muffins prepared with whole-grain oats, canola oil, low fat butter, blueberries, etc. Check the recipe here.
4. Grain Bowl
Whether it is quinoa, brown rice or couscous, you can create a healthy breakfast by adding on top and mixing chopped spinach, avocado and tomato. Ge the recipe here.
5. DIY Muesli with Pistachio, Apple and Fig
Maybe you should prepare the muesli yourself if you totally hate the once you can buy at the supermarket. Just bake oats, pistachios, sesame seeds and poppy seeds until they get a gold brown look. You can eat them with almond milk or 0% fat yogurt and add on top apple and fig, or any fruits you want.
