5 Quick and Healthy Breakfast Ideas
Whether you’d consider yourself an athlete, an on-the-go professional, a busy parent, or all of the above, preparing and eating a healthy breakfast can seem close to impossible. Finding the perfect combination between tasty, nutritious, and quick food is one of our goals at Fuel For Fire so we understand this struggle. If you’re looking for protein-packed breakfasts that won’t take up your morning, check out these five quick and healthy ideas!
- Berry Acai smoothie
- Blueberries (or your choice of berries)
Simple and customizable, Acai Bowls are a great nutritious breakfast. Using the Fuel For Fire smoothie as a base, either blend the smoothie with the berries or squeeze the smoothie into a bowl. From there it’s up to you on how you’d like to top it! Adding bananas and strawberries provides some key vitamins, while granola adds some crunch, fiber, and protein. Our Berry Acai smoothie is completely vegan, which means you can create your own completely vegan breakfast depending on how you choose to customize it.
- Your choice of Fuel For Fire smoothie
- Your choice of protein powder
- Banana or other fruit
All you need is a blender for this quick portable breakfast. Start by mixing a Fuel For Fire smoothie with protein powder. Our smoothies already contain 10-12g of protein each, but adding protein powder makes it even better, especially if you’re eating right after a morning workout. Then add some fruit to add thickness to the smoothie, as well as some extra nutrients. Add ice to keep it cold and you have the perfect protein shake! You can also add an ingredient like chia seeds to add some additional fiber and calcium.
- Rolled oats
- Your choice of milk
- Banana Cocoa smoothie
- Sliced banana
Overnight oats are perfect for busy people looking for a healthy meal to wake up to. The night before, combine rolled oats and milk, and then top with a banana cocoa smoothie and sliced banana. This filling breakfast provides protein, calcium, potassium, and more. In addition to the banana and Fuel For Fire Smoothie, you can also add other toppings like nut butter or yogurt. If you’re not in as much of a rush, you can add the banana in the morning if the topping seems to be getting too mushy.
Coffee & Peanut Butter Protein Cookies
- 1/2 of a Coffee smoothie
- 1/4 cup of Peanut Butter (or any kind of nut butter)
- 1/4 cup light brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 large egg
- 1 large egg white
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 tablespoons coconut flour
Sure, cookies aren’t normal breakfast food, but on-the-go (or with a smoothie), they can make for a great supplemental treat. These ones are healthy, too! Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and combine the peanut butter, salt, egg, egg white, smoothie, and sugar into a bowl. Add the baking soda on top and then mix in the flour. Then, portion out the cookies onto parchment paper on a baking sheet. Bake for about 5-6 minutes until they have seemed to harden. Let them cool and then you’re ready to enjoy!
If you’re enjoying these after a workout, add protein powder to the dough to thicken the batter, as well as give you some extra protein.
Sweet Potato Apple Paleo Muffins
