11 Filling Breakfasts to Fuel Your Day

August 10, 2017

School is starting up soon and kids (and parents) need fuel to perform the best they can. As you can imagine, the sugary cereal our kids love also lead to sugar crashes later in the day. Here are some of my family’s favorite healthy and filling breakfasts to start your day off right. To get the recipes, click on the title.

1. Overnight ‘No-cook’ Oatmeal

In a hurry and looking for something quick and filling? Prepare this the night before and voilà, a tasty, filling, healthy meal you can eat at home or eat on the go.


2. Healthy Egg Bake Muffins

Here is a healthy on the go breakfast that will give you energy all morning.


3. Healthy Oatmeal Bars

Looking for a way to cut out those sugary cereals and start your day off right? This recipe has no added sugar, it’s easy and filling.


4. Avocado Egg Toast

Have a little time to sit down to breakfast for once? This breakfast will give you the brain boost you need to start the day off right.


5. Fruity Protein Smoothie

My favorite post work out drink or in a hurry meal. Make a big batch so you can freeze anything you won’t drink right away in individual cups or bottles to take with you on the go in the future.


6. Breakfast Burrito

Here is a recipe that will leave you satisfied. This healthy protein and fiber packed breakfast is a great way to spice up a bland breakfast.


7. Cottage Cheese Paired With Fruit

Such an easy, balanced meal. Cottage cheese packs a protein punch. Cut up some fruit in advance and spritz with a little lemon juice to keep it fresh and appetizing.


8. Greek Yogurt Parfait 

Greek yogurt has 2-3 times the amount of protein found in regular yogurt and is a creamier, richer option. Mix in some healthy granola and fruit of your choice and you have a creamy treat.


9. Pancakes

There are millions of pancake recipes out there but try mine and you won’t be disappointed. Double the batch and make them on the weekend when you have time on your hands. The leftovers freeze well for later or can be eaten as a quick breakfast the rest of the week. Even find a recipe for veggie pancakes and sneak some vegetables into your kid’s day without them knowing.


10. Peanut Butter Banana Wrap

A twist on classic peanut butter toast, I’ve eaten this since I was a kid and now my kids love them. Spread natural creamy peanut butter onto a whole wheat tortilla. Place a whole, peeled banana down the middle of the tortilla and wrap like a burrito. Wrap it in aluminum foil and take it with you for an easy breakfast or snack.


11. Peanut Butter Zucchini Bread

This bread is so delicious and filling your kids will beg for more. Plus you are getting a serving of vegetables before the day even starts.
