Life hack #1: 5 easy and healthy breakfast recipes to get you out the door faster.

I don't know about you, but I am in constant search of easy breakfast recipes that (1) take no time to put together, (2) I can grab and go with ease, and (3) are healthy, made from whole foods, and delicious. Sounds like an impossible task, right? Wrong! Here are 5 breakfast recipes that I eat on a regular basis and have helped to streamline the chaos that I call mornings.


1. DL’s Peanut Protein & Energy Bars


Danielle Levy Chocolate peanut energy vegan bars


Have you heard of Danielle Levy? No? Consider your life changed. This Holistic Nutrition Practitioner packs a mean (read: delicious) punch with all of her plant-based, whole food recipes, and these energy bars are no exception. I make these bad boys every weekend and grab one to eat on my way to work. This recipe is extremely versatile - you can sub any nut you like and add extra spices (e.g., cinnamon, ginger) or more nuts/seeds/etc (e.g., pumpkin seeds, hemp hearts) if you want. Plus it's basically desert for breakfast - win win! 

(Side note: if you aren't already soaking dates to use as the source of sweetener in your baking - you need to start! I also like to save the water and add a bit to my smoothies for some no-sugar sweetness. Trust. You will never look back).

2. Oh She Glows- Vegan Overnight Oats

I currently have an obsession with overnight oats. They come together the night before in 3 minutes flat and you can eat them at your desk once you have arrived to work. Add your favourite fruit/berries/nuts/seeds to them and you will be full until noon!

3. Minimalist Baker- Creamy Chocolate Breakfast Shake

Really any green smoothie of your choosing would fit the bill for fast/easy/healthy/delicious breakfasts, but this one from Minimalist Baker is particularly amazing. I love putting cocoa powder into my smoothies to give them a sense of indulgence - living on the edge never looked so wild.

4. Nutritionist in the Kitch - Easy Egg Muffins


Easy egg muffins


Ah the classic egg-breakfast. This recipe needed to be included on the list for the speed in which you can put them together, the ready-to-go nature of the muffins, and the versatility of its ingredients - you can really add any type of vegetable and add/omit cheese/spices (garlic anyone?)/other ingredients as you like. To keep assembly-time short, this recipe calls for the vegetables to be added in raw, but if you prefer your veggies cooked, by all means saute them beforehand.

5. Simply Quinoa - One-Pot Lentils + Quinoa with Spinach

I know what you're thinking - lentils for breakfast? Not what you would typically think of for a "classic" breakfast. But hear me out. I constantly feel like I'm in breakfast Groundhog Day (don't get me wrong - I love the 4 recipes above and eat them all the time) and sometimes just want to try something different/out of the ordinary. This recipe can easily be prepared for supper and brought to work as a wholesome, warming, and filling breakfast. To add a more classic breakfast twist, you could add a poached egg on top and call it brunch.
