Here are five quick and easy breakfast ideas:
- Overnight oats: Combine rolled oats, milk (dairy or non-dairy), and a spoonful of honey or maple syrup in a jar or container. Add in some diced fruit (such as berries or banana) and a sprinkle of nuts or seeds. Cover the jar and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, give the oats a stir and enjoy cold or heated up in the microwave.
- Avocado toast: Toast a slice of bread until it is crispy. Spread some mashed avocado on top and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and a squeeze of lemon juice. You can also add some diced tomatoes, sliced radishes, or microgreens for extra flavor and crunch.
- Scrambled tofu: In a pan, sauté diced onions and bell peppers until they are soft. Crumble in some tofu and cook until it is heated through. Season the tofu with a pinch of turmeric, paprika, and salt. Serve the tofu with a slice of toast or a bowl of cooked grains.
- Banana smoothie: Blend together a frozen banana, a scoop of protein powder (such as whey or plant-based), a cup of milk (dairy or non-dairy), and a spoonful of peanut butter or almond butter. You can also add in some frozen berries or spinach for extra flavor and nutrients.
- Yogurt parfait: In a jar or bowl, layer some yogurt (dairy or non-dairy) with diced fruit (such as berries or mango) and a sprinkle of granola or nuts. Repeat the layers until the jar is full, and enjoy the parfait with a spoon.
