There are some mornings when all we can do is will ourselves out of bed and grab a fistful of cereal or a granola bar on our way out the door. A gourmet breakfast isn’t a realistic everyday goal. But that doesn’t mean we should settle for a sugar rush that’ll leave us sad and hungry a half-hour later. You’d be surprised how many healthy breakfast ideas require very little effort when put into practice. Check some of them out below:

Avocado on whole grain toast
All you need to make this breakfast is a few slices of whole grain bread, avocado and a toaster. The fibre, complex carbs and healthy fats help to keep you full and satisfied until your next meal.
Avocado Toast With Egg
Sometimes simple is just better. Top two lightly toasted slices of whole-grain bread with smashed avocado and a sprinkling of salt and pepper. Layer on two sunny-side up eggs for a healthy dose of protein and you’ve got a well-rounded breakfast.
Berry and Yoghurt Smoothie
Here’s a simple and delicious smoothie for the morning rush. It takes less than five minutes to blend fresh or frozen fruit (banana and berries work well) with Greek yogurt and a liquid of your choice (milk, juice, coconut water — whatever you like). This recipe makes two servings, so freeze one overnight and let it thaw throughout the day to enjoy in the afternoon.
Berry Breakfast Parfait
One of the easiest, healthiest, and tastiest breakfasts out there is a classic fruit and yogurt parfait. The best part? It can be made with any toppings you like. Choose fruits that are in season to get the best flavor. But in a pinch, (thawed) frozen will do.
Blueberry Overnight Oats
This is the ultimate busy-bee breakfast. Combine oats, chia seeds, blueberries, vanilla, almond milk, and syrup in a sealed container and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, top with slivered almonds and half a sliced banana and you’re ready for breakfast. If you’re in the mood for something warm, heat in the microwave for 1–2 minutes.
