Think you don’t have time to eat healthy breakfasts?
We’re happy to tell you that eating healthy doesn’t have to be difficult or time-consuming. And, it doesn’t have to cost a lot, either. If you have time to grab a bowl of cereal in the morning, you’ll definitely be able to whip up some of these healthy protein-rich breakfasts.
If you’re tired of your usual morning spread, read on to see some fast and delicious breakfast ideas that will get you into the groove for a great day.
1. Peanut Butter Banana Toast
Not your typically boring peanut butter toast, but this is almost as easy to make. Try topping your toast with peanut butter – or almond butter, if you’re so inclined – banana, and a sprinkle of chia seeds (or toasted sesame seeds) for a fast and nutritious start to your day.
2. Leftovers and Egg
Want a super-fast and healthy breakfast idea? Scoop leftover roasted potatoes, veggies, and meat in an oven-safe container and crack an egg over the top. Zap it in the microwave for 30-45 seconds, or, pop it in the oven. You could top with a sprinkle of cheese if the mood strikes.
3. Ham n’ Cheese Egg Breakfast Sandwich
Sure, ham isn’t exactly a first choice health food, but for those mornings where you wake up craving something a bit more substantial, this easy sandwich is the perfect solution. Use Canadian bacon for a lean dose of protein.
4. Frozen Fruit Smoothies
No time to cut and prep fresh fruit in the mornings? No worries! Just toss a handful of frozen fruit or berries into the blender along with some peanut butter, Greek yogurt, or protein powder for a hit of protein. Check out some of these delicious smoothie recipes for more great ideas.

Love waffles, but sick of the sugar crash that follows? Why not try topping your waffles with some peanut butter as well? Add peanut butter and a dash of raisins or chia seeds, or, make a grab-and-go waffle sandwich by layering the peanut butter mixture between two waffles.
As you can see, it’s easy to eat healthy, even if you’re short on time. Don’t let your lack of time hold you back from a nutritious breakfast. Try some of these deliciously quick meals and get start your day off in a great way!
