One of the best ways to set the tone for your day is having a tasty and nutritious breakfast! Not only will a hearty breakfast keep you feeling full and energized throughout the day, but the right flavor combinations can put you in a great mood and help get you excited to eat more healthy meals throughout the day. Something as simple as eggs with sautéed vegetables could satisfy your needs and cravings, but even if you’re not a fan of eggs there are so many high protein, lower sugar ways to start your day or healthy alternative ways to start your day! That’s why I’m sharing a roundup of my all-time favorite healthy breakfast recipes that you’ll love along with some things to keep in mind when choosing your breakfast.

When You’re Tight on Time in the Morning…

breakfast vs. breakfast

Something to keep in mind when you’re crunched for time in the mornings is the power of plain, whole foods. I know it can be tempting to reach for a cereal and  juice that claim to be full of fiber and other nutrients, however it’s so important to read the labels and know what you’re actually getting. Most of the time these foods are just highly processed sugar bombs with a tiny bit of fiber or nutritional value. When it comes to juice, eating whole fruit is a much better, lower calorie and higher fiber option than fruit juice. While you could easily drink 11.5 oz of orange juice, you most likely would not eat 3.5 oranges in one sitting (the equivalent in calorie amount).⠀

So with that in mind, if you’ve been looking for some healthy recipes to get you excited about breakfast, I’ve got you covered. Keep reading to get the full breakdown of my go-to delicious and nutritious breakfast recipes:


If you crave sweet foods in the morning, you’re going to love these 5 Ingredient Pancakes:

I love upgrading a classic food like pancakes with healthier and simpler ingredients! Coconut flour, used in this recipe, is a great alternative to white or wheat flour because it’s high in fiber, protein and healthy fats. Coconut flour is also low in sugar and digestible carbs, and has a low glycemic index. All around wins!

What you need:

(Makes 4 pancakes)

1 ripe banana

4 large eggs

1/8-1/4 cup water

1/3 cup coconut flour

1/2 tsp baking soda

*stevia if you like it sweeter*⠀

What to do:

1 – Mash the banana with a fork

2 – Whisk eggs and combine in a bowl with banana, coconut flour, baking soda and the optional stevia

3 – Mix well then add an 1/8 cup to 1/4 cup water depending on desired consistency

4 – Heat a pan with some oil or non toxic spray oil

Prefer a savory, high-protein breakfast? Check out this combo:

I love finding new ways to prepare eggs since they’re such a high-protein, nutrient dense food. These egg cups are so easy to make ahead of time and you’ll be full for hours with nutrients in the bank. Each egg cup is 114 cals, 8g protein, 3g carbs, 6.5g fat and I usually have eat least 2, if not 3. A quality protein shake with some healthy fats and greens, Greek yogurt with fruit, chia seed pudding or even a clean protein bar are some good examples.

What you’ll need:

10-12 eggs

1/2 cup tomatoes

handful of sliced mushrooms

1/4 cup red onion

cooked ground turkey crumbles

1 cup kale

olive oil

sea salt

What to do: 

1- Whisk the eggs in a large bowl.

2- Spray your muffin tray with olive oil or cupcake liners.

3- Pour the eggs about halfway into each cup.

4- Add the rest of the ingredients in each cup.

5- Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes at 350F.

6- Enjoy or save in the fridge for later!
