Start your day right with these easy healthy breakfast ideas that take around 5 minutes, can help you lose weight and feel amazing.
Breakfast. They say it’s the most important meal of the day.
For me breakfast has always been something for the rich folks. For spoiled people. People who have time to prep eggs and pancakes and stuff and don’t hate their mornings and their work (or school).
Well. Last year I did some research and found out, yeah you do need breakfast to maintain a healthy weight and not feel hungry all the time. And not just any kind. Since then I became also an annoying breakfast eater, who actually likes mornings, and now I’m gonna share this joy with you.
(Yes, today I’m overflowing with positivity.)

5 Easy Healthy Breakfast Ideas To Help You Lose Weight
#1. Overnight oats
I am late for a lot of things, and making overnight oats is one of them. But better late than never. This is my favorite breakfast because it’s:
- super filling
- incredibly delicious
- very, very easy
- ready to go in the morning
- a jar or a tupperware to prep this
- chia seeds
- water/milk (I recommend dairy-free)
- yogurt (optional)
- berries or other fruit you like
- nuts (like almonds or walnuts)
- nut butter (optional)
You can find the exact recipe here.
The evening before, you mix oats, some milk (dairy or non-dairy, even water works) or yogurt, chia seeds – put that whole thing in the fridge and let it soak well overnight. Then the magic happens. In the morning you get something that’s creamy, delicious, healthy and tastes like a super good dessert. You top this with whatever you want – I like berries, nuts and nut butter. Then you’re ready to go.
The good thing about this breakfast is that you can take it anywhere and it stays good for hours. I would put some frozen berries and let them melt and then I have cold and delicious overnight oats even for lunch or whenever I’m hungry.
#2. Avocado Toast
Right next to overnight oats is my other favorite thing – avocado toast. It’s a great healthy savory breakfast.
- a toaster
- sliced whole grain bread
- toppings (like sliced hard boiled egg, tomatoes or just veggies).
Some people even put fruit on this.
I like more the savory type.
You can find the exact recipe for my favorite avocado toast here.
It tastes like pizza and takes 5 minutes to make. You just mash and spread the avocado on top of the toast and then top with whatever you enjoy.
#3. Yogurt with berries and nuts
This healthy breakfast is super easy and it’s great if you’ve forgotten to prep anything. You’ll get it done in less than 3 minutes.
- probiotic yogurt
- berries (or other fruit you like)
- walnuts or almonds
- a bowl
- nut butter
All you’ve got to do is put the yogurt in a bowl, top with berries and nuts and perhaps some nut butter. It’s very refreshing and tasty.
If you need a recipe, you can find the exact it here.
#4. Smoothie or smoothie bowl
I’ve never been the type to actually enjoy a smoothie or a smoothie bowl for breakfast.
Nevertheless I still have a smoothie every once in a while for breakfast.
My favorite smoothie for breakfast is an oatmeal and banana smoothie, because it’s very filling and tasty.
You can find the exact recipe here. For a filling healthy breakfast smoothie or smoothie bowl, you need:
- soaked oats or nuts
- optional: yogurt
- blender or a hand blender
#5. Flourless Banana & Oats Waffles
Now if you’re in the mood for something more pancake or waffle like – you can make flourless waffles using banana and oats.
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1 banana
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- coffee/nut grinder to grind the oats
- waffle maker
Sooo, last few months I became an aunt for the first time in my life and made these banana oatmeal waffles, topped with the darkest chocolate you can find. Good times 😄 Kinda-Recipe: Makes 2 1 egg 1 banana 1tbsp coconut oil 1/2 cup oats (ground in a food processor or nut grinder, not very sure about this one) 1/2 tsp baking powder Chopped dark chocolate to top with Mix it all together and put it in the waffle maker. When done top with chocolate while still hot. Believe me – unfortunately it doesn’t work without the egg. #beautybites #waffles #recipe
All you need to do is mix the egg, ground oats, coconut oil, baking powder and a mashed banana in a mixing bowl and then put this whole thing in a waffle maker. I shared the recipe on Instagram (that I haven’t visited for a month now), but here you go. This breakfast takes longest – about 6-8 minutes.
And that is it, now you’re ready to start your day with a healthy breakfast without spending more than 10 minutes or standing in line.
