Healthy Breakfast Recipes in 5 Minutes + Easy Smoothie Recipes

If you have no energy for a proper breakfast, you can find here excellent healthy breakfast recipes that are quick and delicious. Although breakfast is considered the most important meal of the day, many times we tend to skip it. Breakfast is a matter of habit – if we are used to eat our first meal a few hours after we wake up, our body learns to adapt to it.

However people who are used to eating breakfast every morning feel hungry almost immediately after they wake up, because their body won’t get the energy level it used to early in the morning.

Never skipping breakfast is also one of the 70 habits featured in my e-book 70 Powerful Habits For A Great Health which will guide you how to take positive steps to improve your wellness and overall health.

One common reason for skipping breakfast is that we just don’t have time to prepare it in the morning or sit down to eat it. It is therefore important that the time of the preparation of the meal will be short. Therefore I would like to share with you several healthy breakfast recipes that will take you not more than 5 minutes to prepare.

Healthy options for a quick breakfast:

– Sandwich and cut vegetables
– A serving of fruit / dried fruit, combined with nuts or almonds
– Cereal (make sure to select cereal with no sugar or very little sugar) with milk or almond/rice milk
– A smoothie with milk/water/juice/almond milk/rice milk
– Porridge. There are endless possibilities on how to prepare a delicious and healthy porridge in less than five minutes.

Equally important is to drink water in the morning! Our body needs fluids to clear the accumulated waste at night. Two cups of water in the morning will do wonders. You will feel fresh and energetic throughout the day.
