Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Here are some healthy breakfast ideas to give you a boost for the whole day!
A great way to start the day and lose weight is with the smoked salmon toast. It has 360 calories and it will give you energy to tackle down what’s ahead. You’ll need 2 oz of smoked salmon, 1 slice of toasted whole-wheat bread, a ½ tbsp of cream cheese, 1 thick slice of red onion and 1 tbsp of chives. Even though the cream cheese has a bad rap, don’t let that discourage you. The cream cheese has calcium that helps you burn more fat. Put all the ingredients on the toast and enjoy your breakfast.
The sweet-treat toast is another great idea for a healthy breakfast that will help you lose weight. You will need 1 creamy swiss wedge, 1 cup of sliced mango and 2 slices of toasted cinnamon raisin bread. Just spread the cheese on top of the cinnamon raisin bread and top it off with mango. Mangos have a lot of vitamin C, vitamin A and fiber. These ingredients will keep you satisfied and full throughout the day.
Another breakfast idea that will help you maintain the muscle mass and maximize the weight loss is the scrambled eggsadilla. For this ultra-tasty breakfast, you will need one 8-inch whole-wheat tortilla, 1 oz of shredded cheese, 1 whole egg plus 1 egg white, 2 tbsp of chopped green pepper, 2 tbsp of chopped red onion and 2 tbsp of chunky salsa. Mix the eggs with the onion and pepper and fry them. Fold the scrambled mixtures into the tortilla and add the cheese and salsa.
The chocolate cherry waffles are a great hit with all kids. For this healthy breakfast, you will need 2 whole grain waffles, 1 tbsp of chocolate almond butter and 1 cup of pitted fresh cherries. Spread the cherries and the chocolate almond butter on the waffles and you are done.
Another healthy breakfast idea for kids is the berry English muffin. This high fiber breakfast contains 12 grams and will satisfy every kid’s sweet tooth. You will need 1 whole grain English muffin, 1 tbsp natural creamy peanut butter, 1 tbsp dried chia seeds, ¼ cup of sliced strawberries and ½ tsp of ground cinnamon. Slice the muffin into halves and spread the creamy peanut butter on top of each half. Top it off with the rest of the ingredients.
The savory English muffin is an easy healthy breakfast idea that will become one of your favourite morning meals. This breakfast idea contains 310 calories. You will need ½ cup of raw kale, 3 oz of ham, 1 whole-wheat English muffin, 2 tbsp of shredded low-fat cheddar cheese and 1 tsp of olive oil. Cut the muffin in half and on each half, layer the cheese, kale and ham. Add some olive oil, sea salt, black pepper and chili powder, by your choosing. Toast the muffins for 10 minutes in a previously heated oven at 375 F.
Another easy healthy breakfast idea is the pistachio rice pudding. You will need ¾ cup of nonfat milk, ½ cup of uncooked instant brown rice, 15 pistachios, 1 tsp of brown sugar and ½ tsp of cinnamon. Cook the rice with the milk. Then mix the pistachios and add the cinnamon and brown sugar.
The ricotta swirl is a quick healthy breakfast idea that contains only 29 grams of protein. You will need 1 cup of part-skim ricotta cheese, ½ cup of chopped papaya, 1tsp of honey and ½ tsp of flax seeds. Stir the honey and the ricotta and top it off with flax seeds and papaya. It doesn’t get any faster than this, right?

Here are some healthy breakfast ideas with eggs.
Eggs ‘n’ Greens

The Greens, Eggs and Ham Quesadilla
The Greens, eggs and ham quesadilla is an amazing way for a healthy start of the day. For this recipe, you will need 2 whole wheat tortillas, 2 oz of lean deli ham, ¼ cup of arugula, 2 large scrambled and cooked eggs, 2 tbsp of crumbled feta cheese and ¾ cup of blueberries. In each wrap add the half of the already cooked eggs, ham, feta and arugula. Fold the tortillas in half and warm them in a pan. Top them off with the blueberries.
Eggs and Feta Frittata
Our last healthy breakfast idea is the tomato, artichoke and feta frittata. You will need 1 egg, 1 egg white, ¼ cup of chopped tomato, ½ cup of drained and chopped canned artichoke hearts, 1 tsp of chopped shallot, cooking spray, 3 tbsp of crumbled feta cheese and 1 slice of toasted whole grain bread.
