Everyone knows that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But if you’re like me, then you find yourself hitting the snooze button a little too often–and usually rushing out the door hungry! Well, it’s time to stop putting the pause on this vital morning meal. There are tons of healthy breakfast recipes out there that are super easy to make and will not slow down your morning routine. Here are a few tasty ideas to try preparing the night before or making the morning of that’ll help you start your day off right.

Above average toast. Spice up this simple classic by adding some yummy ingredients that are packed with essential vitamins and nutrients. Try choosing a good multi-grain bread, and top a slice (or two!) with peanut butter or a delicious low calorie almond butter spread and bananas. This is an easy way to get in a good helping of potassium and protein in the morning. Sprinkle some chia seeds on top to make your toast even more nutrient rich.

Smoothie time. Great at any time of day but especially for breakfast, smoothies are an easy way to get in a morning meal that’s full of fruit, which is great if you need to consume more daily servings. All you have to do is blend together your favorite fruits. To make life easier, stock up on some frozen fruits like a combo of blueberries and bananas or strawberries or peaches. (Yum!) Choose a base like almond milk, water, or juice, and then add low-fat yogurt or ice to get that creamy smoothie texture. Voila! You have an instant smoothie that you can drink while walking out the door.

Get creative with oatmeal. We’ve all seen the amazing recipes out there for overnight oats that look super tasty. While making overnight oats is a great breakfast meal, there are also many other creative ways to eat oats for breakfast. Oatmeal bakes are a great meal prep option and provide a weeks worth of breakfast. And they’re so simple to make. Plus, there are tons of recipes that allow you to pick out your own mix of oats and fruits. You just have to combine them together with simple ingredients such as with milk, sugar, and butter. Bake, and then you have bars to eat at home or on the go.

Try some creative pairings. If a traditional breakfast isn’t your thing, then think about putting together some more interesting meal options. Boiled eggs and avocado are two protein rich foods that are good to eat and good for you. You can also sub the avocado for spinach to get more iron in your diet. Cereal is also another option, and I’m not talking about with milk. Pick a healthy cereal or even a granola and use your favorite low-fat yogurt as a base. Top this mix with some fruit like strawberries and blueberries, and you have flavorful meal that’s full of nutrients.
