I’ll be the first to admit that my breakfast of champions usually consists of an eye-opening Venti Starbucks coffee, which I like to refer to as “liquid crack in a cup”. However, in an effort to keep to my “commitment” of adding a little healthy eating to my grab-and-go liquid diet, I’ve discovered these ten make-ahead, healthy breakfast recipes that won’t prevent me from hitting the snooze button, yet again, and sleeping in an extra 15 minutes.
Saying goodbye to the morning rush never tasted so good!
Berry Quinoa and Kale Salad. OMG! When I saw that salad dressing can be added to this already-amazing breakfast salad, I just about died. I love adding a little salad dressing to just about everything – especially over these berries. So good. So healthy. So easy to make. I’m sold! (Courtesy of The Recipe Critic).
Vegan & Gluten Free Peanut Butter and Banana Overnight Oats. When I decided to commit to eating a little healthy this year, images of tasteless bowls of oatmeal started popping up in my head and eating healthy started sounding like a bad venture to take on. But as I browsed Pinterest for some tasty ideas, I came upon this recipe by Domesticate Me and was pleasantly surprised when I tried it. So much so, that I had to share it with you. It tastes so good you’re gonna forget it’s vegan and gluten free. (Courtesy of Domesticate Me)
Protein- Packed Soy Chorizo Lettuce Wrap. When I first shared this recipe with my daughter and she saw that it called for meatless, soy chorizo, she swore she was gonna revoke my Latina card. She called soy chorizo blasphemy. But when we ended up making this meatless dish to honor Hungry By Nature’s meatless-Monday, we were pleasantly surprised. Full of flavor, without compromising taste, I would have to say this is gonna stay on top of our morning breakfast routine. (Courtesy of Hungry By Nature)
Two Minute Vanilla Chia Pudding. Any recipe that only takes two minutes to make cannot be good is what my first thoughts were. But this delicious meal-in-a-jar has so many great flavors and it smells so good. I added a little cinnamon to it and enjoyed it the next morning as my new breakfast comfort food. I recommend you read through the whole recipe first before making it because iFoodreal’s Olena offers some great tips on how to perfect this scrumptious recipe.

When you’re pressed for time in the morning but don’t want to stuff yourself with a bowl of cereal, these easy, make-ahead beauties will satisfy even the most finicky of eaters.

When Kristin of Iowa Girl Eats mentioned that Georgia peaches (a seasonal fruit) were the key ingredient to making this beautiful Crisp Parfait, I wasn’t too sure about including it in our list. But then I found the best way to freeze Georgia peaches and I changed my mind. Good thing I did, because this parfait is so great to eat any time of the year that it would be a disservice not to share it with you. I hope you have the opportunity to make this because you’re gonna love it and it leaves your body feeling so clean and your stomach full. (Courtesy of Iowa Girl Eats)
Whole30-Friendly Prosciutto-Wrapped Mini Frittatas. Ha! Proscuitto! Once I saw this, I knew I had to try it! Proscuitto with melon is one of my favorite appetizers and to have it as a breakfast item became a sudden must. I had to read up on what the Whole30 Program was before I tried this recipe, and to be honest, I hate anything that has rules when it comes to eating…but hey, whatever floats your boat. Whole30 or not, this breakfast recipe is so delicious and bonus! It is made with tomatoes (optional of course). I had these with cranberry mimosas and I have to say, it makes for one hellofa brunch item – and it only takes 30 minutes from beginning to end to make. So yummy! You gotta try it!

Homemade Starbucks Spinach & Feta Breakfasts Wrap. When I saw that this recipe was an carbon copy of Starbucks, I jumped for joy! No more of the daunting task of getting ready on a Saturday morning just to throw money out the window to satisfy my “commitment” to this year’s resolution of eating a little healthier. Now I can have a better version of Starbucks right in my own home, whenever I want. (Courtesy of Kitchen Treaty)
