It is often said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It is the first source of energy that your body will consume. It is important to eat a good breakfast in the morning in order to give your body all the nutrients it needs to power through the day. Breakfast isn’t a priority for most of us. However, it has a considerable impact on our mood and productivity. A lack of time and motivation could explain why many of us skip breakfast.

Here are 12 healthy breakfast ideas that are quick to make and can be prepared the night before.

5. Avocado and Egg on Toast

If you are used to putting butter on your toast in the morning, consider avocado as an alternative. It is the only fruit/vegetable that contains lipids. You will get the creamy texture you love without having to fear bad fats. Complete your breakfast with a delicious fresh egg.

7. Granola Energy Bars

Commercial energy bars are quite expensive and often high in unnecessary refined sugars. Why not make them yourself? They have a very long shelf life and pair perfectly with a cup of black tea.

Finally, neglecting to eat breakfast is as detrimental to our health as eating empty calories. If your body doesn’t have all the nutrients it needs, it will not be able to function efficiently. This is why it is important to eat a healthy breakfast every morning. Why not complete these delicious recipes with a nice cup of hot tea? It improves productivity, memory, and prevents nutritional deficiencies.
