Need healthy breakfast ideas? Need FAST breakfast ideas? Then I want to share five breakfast recipes you can make in less than five minutes that also promote good health.
Are you always busy and rushing around? Especially in the morning?
What if there was a way to quickly get the fuel you need AND get out the door in time? And what if that food offered consistent energy levels for six or eight hours, increased your focus and clarity of thought, and gave you the ability to tackle even more than you already do?
I want to share with you five healthy breakfast recipes that you can prepare in less than 5 minutes. They’re based on providing the two macronutrients that offer the most fuel and satiety: fat and protein.
Not only will these breakfasts help you perform better, they’ll shrink your waistline because they stabilize your hormones and give your body exactly what it needs while helping you reduce your intake at later meals (unlike these fake healthy breakfast recipes from mainstream sites).
5-Minute Breakfast Idea #1: Eggacados
Load up with healthy fat and protein in less than 5 minutes? Yes, please!
That’s one thing you’re going to notice about these breakfast recipes – they’re all amazing at keeping your blood sugar stable and your energy up. That’s really what makes for a perfect breakfast.
Here’s how to make them…
- Preheat your oven to 425.
- Take two avocados and slice them in half.
- Scoop out a little more than a yolk-sized portion of each avocado.
- Crack an egg into each avocado slice.
- Place the eggacados in a small baking dish and pop into the oven for 15 minutes or until the egg whites set.
“Wait, you said these ideas only take 5 minutes?”
They do…if you don’t sit there and stare at the oven. Go get ready for wherever you need to go or whatever you need to do while the oven does the work.
p.s. With practice, you can get the yolks to drop first and then let the whites cover the top.
5-Minute Breakfast Idea #2: Bulletproof Coffee
Are you a top performer? Do you like feeling like you’re running on rocket fuel?
If so, this is the coffee for you.
It’s like rocket fuel for the first two hours and then diesel fuel for the following four to six hours. With. No. Crash. And it tastes amazing (even though it seems like it wouldn’t).
Here’s how to make it…
- Brew up 16 ounces of coffee.
- Once brewed, pour into a blender and add two to six tablespoons of grass-fed butter (Yes, you heard that right. Don’t worry, it tastes great).
- Add one to three tablespoons of MCT oil (I like this brand).
- Blend, enjoy, and double your previous productivity output.
Are you thinking, “How can this possibly be healthy?”
I don’t blame you – it seems completely contradictory to everything you’ve heard, right?
Before you outright dismiss it, though, read this full post on Bulletproof Coffee. It has all the details you need.
5-Minute Breakfast Idea #3: Rebooted Vanilla-Strawberry Power Smoothie
Honestly, I’m not a big fan of smoothies in the morning. Any time you liquify your food you’re going to cause more of a blood sugar spike which can cause cravings and hunger.
With that said, though, lots of people prefer smoothies and making a healthy smoothie is much better than many of the alternatives people might reach for.
The Rebooted Vanilla-Strawberry Power Smoothie is the official Rebooted Body smoothie — low in sugar with a strong dose of healthy fat and protein.
It’s not only delicious, it will keep you satisfied for hours while feeding your healthy gut flora.
How to make it…
Combine the following in a blender, blend until smooth, and serve…
- 6 ounces Raw milk or Unsweetened Almond Milk
- 2 ounces Unsweetened Kefir
- Grass-fed Vanilla Whey Protein
- Handful Kale
- A Few Strawberries
- 2 Spoonfuls Coconut Oil
- 1 Spoonful Almond Butter
- 1 Serving Prebiotic Fiber
- A few shakes of Cinnamon
Fast and easy!
Note, I’m not a fan of meal replacement shakes in general.
5-Minute Breakfast Idea #4: Leftover Steak and Eggs
Whenever you make steak, make more than you typically eat in one sitting and automatically put the extra in the fridge for the next morning (sliced up and ready to go).
“Wait, steak is healthy?”
Yes, steak is healthy (and nutritious). If you can get your hands on grass-fed steak then it’s even healthier. If you’re eating conventional steak, just go for a super lean cut (don’t eat the fat).
How to prepare it…
- Take the steak out of the fridge.
- Fry up two to four eggs (pastured eggs are preferred) in Kerrygold butter.
- Once the eggs are done (2-3 minutes) put them on a plate and then toss the leftover steak in the pan.
- Heat for 2 minutes and you’re set.
This is a perfect breakfast for those of you experimenting with the Carnivore Diet, too.
5-Minute Breakfast Idea #5: Breakfast Omelet Muffins
Okay, you can’t “make” these in less than 5 minutes, but you can prepare them in less than 5 minutes once they’re made.
And that’s the key here. Ideally, you’d make these on Sunday and have at least two days of the coming week covered for breakfast simply by reheating them. Cool?
Here’s how to make them…
- Blend or whisk eggs with spinach, cooked bacon pieces, bell pepper chunks, and cheese.
- Pour the mixture into muffin tins.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes before serving or storing in the refrigerator for later.
No more slaving over the stove when you’re in a rush to get out the door. Hell, you can even eat these in the car.
You Don’t Need Fancy Breakfast Recipes!
Whenever people set out to “eat healthy,” they invariably download a bunch of intricate recipes as if they have to become a chef at a 5-star restaurant.
Want to know what happens next? They get overwhelmed, complain that cooking healthy is “too hard,” and then they throw in the towel.
You don’t need “recipes” to eat healthy. You just need to cook up some healthy food. The simpler you can do that, the better.
Thankfully, eating real food without a bunch of stupid restrictions like “low fat” or “low sodium” and such, makes this pretty easy, even if you’re a beginner in the kitchen.
Real food is healthy and delicious and only requires simply cooking processes and simple seasoning (like salt and pepper). Overthinking not required!
