But research has consistently shown that including protein is the key to feeling full and quelling mid-morning munchies. (Sorry, doughnuts.) Think you’re too busy? Here’s over a week’s worth of healthy and easy breakfast ideas. Just try to avoid these 17 “healthy” breakfast mistakes everyone makes.
Yogurt breakfast drink
This is one of the most convenient easy breakfast ideas because you can sip it while you’re getting ready. The yogurt is also high in protein and will keep you going all day long. Blend peach and vanilla yogurt with orange juice concentrate, milk and ice and you’ll have a nutritious meal to-go. Get the recipe here.
Berry pie oatmeal
Whole-grain oats at breakfast become even healthier in this Blackberry Pie Oatmeal recipe adapted from Oprah magazine. Top a bowl of cooked oats with 1/3 cup blackberries (or your favorite), then add 1 tablespoon chopped walnuts and one crushed graham cracker. One of the most antioxidant-rich fruits, berries are loaded with fiber and vitamin C. Walnuts’ protein and fat help make the oatmeal more satiating.
