Yes, okay, you get it: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But whipping up the perfect a.m. feast every day is probably right there on your to-do list next to washing your sheets every week: You mean to do it…but it just never happens.
Luckily, the universe has some ideas about what you can eat to help get your day started right. Check below some advice on the best healthy breakfast to eat, based on your sign.
You’re ruled by Mars, which has a strong energy that makes you love it when things happen fast. That’s why a grab-and-go breakfast is ideal for you. Try making some nutritious muffins with nuts and almond flour when you have time and keep them handy so you can nab one or two on your way out the door.
You like to take your time with things, Taurus, and that can screw you in the breakfast department on busy weekday mornings. Try to schedule some extra time into your a.m. routine so you can scramble some eggs and chop up some fruit before you have to head out.
You cycle between different favorites for breakfast, so your best chance for eating well on the regular is having several choices available. Make sure you have options like muesli and hard-boiled eggs handy at all times, so you can figure out what you want on any given day.
You love a solid comfort breakfast, Cancer, which is why something like oatmeal with nuts and fruit is great for you. That love of a.m. comfort food can cause you to crave pastries and treats first thing, but there are plenty of ways to have a cozy breakfast without blowing your nutritional goals.
You’re the queen of the zodiac, Leo, which is why the best breakfast for you is made by someone else, served to you, and cleaned up by someone who isn’t you. (Hence your love for Starbucks’ breakfast sammies.)
Of course, that’s not always practical—or wallet-friendly. When going DIY, keep an eye on portions (since you tend to overindulge when you have to do something you don’t want to do) and opt for something heart-healthy as an homage to the sun, your ruler and the heart of the zodiac. An egg-white omelet is right up your alley.
You love any and all things healthy, Virgo. Try a protein shake to get your day started right, or do a little research on Pinterest to find the next big breakfast trend (baked avocado eggs, anyone?). As long as it’s healthy, you’re all in.
You love beautiful things, and your breakfast is no exception. You crave something that tastes as good as it looks, making a pretty fruit plate and Greek yogurt a good combo for you. You’ll be tempted to grab a sugary coffee drink on your way to work pretty much daily, but try to keep your sweet tooth in check.
You tend to get laser-focused on one thing in particular… and then you’re so over it. Cruise Pinterest or your fave food blogs to find your next big healthy breakfast, and save a few options for the future while you’re at it—you’re going to need it.
You’re full of energy and want to get up and moving first thing. Reach for a protein powder drink you can sip on the go, or try sprinkling chia seeds on yogurt and fruit for a quick hit of energy. As long as it’s healthy and you’re excited about it, you’re good to go.
You’re all about managing your time properly, Capricorn, and breakfast is no exception. That’s why something you can prep the night before, like overnight oats, is perfect for you. Just put it in a mason jar in the fridge so you can spend next to zero time thinking about breakfast in the morning.
You’re the rebel of the zodiac, Aquarius, and you like to do things differently. While everyone else is noshing on cereal, you want to eat what’s trendy. Try a green smoothie with avocado, yogurt, biscuits with honey butter, or even cold pizza. As long as it’s different (and delicious), you’re all good.
