If you’ve ever wondered what to eat for breakfast, I thought I’d give you some suggestions by sharing what I eat. This might be a good reference. Breakfast is such an important meal, a way to start your day on the right foot, to make sure you have enough energy (physically and mentally) to do whatever you need to do, that you don’t crash midway, and that you’re not tempted to buy some cheap fast food as a quick fix when your body is screaming for nutrients.
Of course, weekend breakfasts are a bit more time-consuming, although it usually only takes 30 minutes or so, but weekdays are fast, easy, yet nutritious. It doesn’t have to be complicated. When you have the right ingredients on hands, it’s just a snap (if you’re wondering why I always use organic ingredients, read this). Remember that your recipes are only as healthy as the ingredients you use. A reason to keep a healthy pantry stocked! 🙂
Every weekend I tend to make either roasted mixed potatoes (white, or yellow with sweet potatoes) to which I might add other vegetables like kale or spinach, and over-easy eggs fried in olive oil with a small glass of freshly squeezed orange juice as a treat (definitely not on an everyday basis!), or multigrain/low-gluten pancakes (dairy-free or vegan) with fresh fruits and organic Quebec maple syrup. We can’t seem to get enough of these 2 options, weekends after weekends, after weekends… haha. Sometimes it might be French toast (dairy-free or vegan), or a quick poached egg and sautéed veggies on toast, or even a bowl of quinoa mixed with nuts and seeds (especially in the winter, very comforting and warming).
During the week, it varies, it can be multigrain toasts (sometimes with homemade bread) with organic almond butter and homemade jam, or a freshly baked wholegrain muffin (like Banana-chocolate chip, or Oat, apple and almond butter, or Cranberry, orange and chocolate chip, or strawberry and maple syrup), or a bowl of fresh strawberries with raw nuts (walnuts are my favourite, but I also use raw pecans, hazelnuts or almonds) and maple syrup, or a bowl of muesli (either store-bought or homemade) with organic Greek yogurt and fresh fruits, or even a quick simple smoothie to go (fresh berries, a banana, some nut milk and chia seeds or hemp seeds, with a dash of raw organic honey or maple syrup)….. It could also be 2 soft-boiled eggs with multigrain toast and a fruit, or a bowl of quick and easy warm oatmeal with raisins, cranberries and apple. I love breakfast!

Oh, and of course, no matter what day of the week it is, it usually starts with a fresh veggie juice before breakfast. 🙂
I hope this has given you some inspiration, and on how quick and easy it can be to have a healthy and nutritious breakfast every day of the week.
