3 Easy & Healthy Breakfast Ideas

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. When I start the morning with good choices, it is easier to follow throughout the day with more good choices. I’ve created 3 delicious and simple recipes that should suit you if you need something fast, or if you’ve got a little more time to treat yourself in the kitchen. Two out of the three recipes are completely vegan, and one includes eggs and leaves a lot of room for variation for your tastes.

I have created a mini frittata, smoothie, and avocado toast. I hope you will try out the recipes!

Individual Frittata

This morning I was really in the mood to make eggs, but something not as traditional. I have always loved quiche, but when someone told me about the Italian version–frittatas, I was intrigued. It takes less prep time because there is no crust, and leaving out the crust really saves a lot of calories. Frittatas come in many assortments and sizes, and are great for any meal of the day. In the oven, they have a beautiful rising souffle look, with nice golden brown coloring.  Nearly any variety of shredded cheese will work for this recipe, but I used fat free shredded cheddar.

Ingredients:

  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ cup shredded cheese
  • 2 TBSP low fat milk
  • ¼ cup cooked vegetables
  • Sea salt as needed
  • Crushed red pepper (optional)
  • 1 tsp fresh or freeze-dried parsley
  • 21 seasoning salute or Mrs. Dash original
  • 1 3.5 ounce ramekin per serving
Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. In a small bowl, scramble egg with milk, salt, crushed pepper, parsley, seasoning solute, and a small pinch of shredded cheese.
  3. Spray inside of ramekin with non-stick spray or coat lightly with olive oil.
  4. Pour egg mixture into ramekin. Add vegetables. I used French green beans and 2 asparagus spears that I quickly sautéed in the skillet. You may also use leftover vegetables you have from a previous meal.
  5. Top with the remaining portion of shredded cheese and bake for 20 minutes, or until frittata has risen and become a nice golden brown.
