5 quick, easy and healthy breakfast ideas

Hack

You’ve probably heard the saying that ‘breakfast is the most important meal of the day’ - it gives us energy to start our day, makes sure we are getting essential nutrients, and is, of course, delicious! Unfortunately, many people find themselves running out of time and rushing out the door without brekky. Here’s 5 easy and nutritious breakfast options you can make at home to get your day off to the best possible start.

5 quick, easy and healthy breakfast ideas

1. Eggs on Toast

Eggs are a great option for breakfast as they are high in protein and can keep you full throughout the morning. They can easily be paired with wholegrain toast, or, if you’re feeling fancy you could add smashed avocado, or cooked spinach or mushrooms - see our recipe. To save time, you could try boiling eggs at the start of the week and storing them in fridge, or you can easily make them in under 10 minutes in the microwave - check out our microwavable scrambled eggs and microwaveable poached eggs

2. Smoothies

Smoothies are super quick and easy to make in the morning when you’re in a rush - plus, you can easily put them in a container to drink them on the go! They are a great way to get in an extra serve of fruit or veg early in the day, plus you can easily prepare the ingredients the night before. Check out our recipes page for some inspo!

3. Yoghurt, fruit and muesli

A bowl of yoghurt, fruit and muesli is super quick and easy to put together in the morning. It’s also a great source of protein, calcium, fibre and complex carbs. Frozen fruit is a great option for this breakfast as its super affordable and won’t spoil too soon. You could also add nuts and seeds for an added boost of fibre and healthy fats. Check out our recipe here.

5. Baked beans

Baked beans for breakfast are a great source of protein, complex carbs, fibre PLUS they’re also considered a vegetable! While it might sound time consuming to cook up baked beans in the morning, making a batch at the start of the week takes less than half an hour, and then can be easily reheated and served with some toast! For some cooking inspiration, check out our recipe for home-made baked beans here.

What is healthy eating?

Eating healthy is making sure you enjoy a wide variety of foods from each of the five major food groups daily, in the amounts recommended. The five major food groups as recommended by the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating are:

  1. vegetables and legumes/bean
  2. fruit
  3. lean meats and poultry, fish, eggs, tofu, nuts and seeds, legumes/beans
  4. grain (cereal) foods, mostly wholegrain and/or high cereal fibre varieties
  5. milk, yoghurt, cheese and/or alternatives, mostly reduced fat.

Foods are grouped together because they provide similar amounts of key nutrients and eating a variety of foods from the list above helps to promote good health and reduce the risk of disease.

Is my diet healthy?

Dietary habits are different between people. Some people choose to follow a particular diet (i.e., Keto diet or vegan diet) while some have to make changes due to certain food restrictions or health conditions. If you want to know if what you usually eat is healthy, then do the Healthy Eating Quiz today to give you the answers in less than 10 minutes.

Why is healthy eating important?

Your HEQ score and personalised feedback report is based on the frequency and variety of healthy core foods you usually eat. This is important because no single food contains all the nutrients we need to stay healthy. Some foods are higher in nutrients than others and people who have a lot of variety in the foods they eat are more likely to be healthy and to stay healthy. In other words, if you can eat a large variety of vegetables as opposed to only 2-3 types of vegetables, the benefits are much greater. This type of diet also helps you to feel better, think better and perform better during your usual daily activities.
