Quick, Energizing Breakfast Ideas to Help Jumpstart Your Day
Why Breakfast Matters
Starting your day with a nutritious breakfast is essential for maintaining energy levels and staying focused throughout the day. But as a busy parent, sometimes it’s hard to find the time. You need a breakfast that is quick, easy, AND packed with nutrients to fuel your body and help you tackle the demands of the day. We get it. It’s a challenge. On the other hand though, studies have suggested that skipping breakfast can lead to things like increased inflammation, reduced cognitive skills (brain fog, ugh) and insulin resistance over time. Plus, skipping breakfast often leads to poor food choices later in the day due to increased hunger. Read on for some of our favorite easy, healthy breakfasts that always help us to start our day on the right foot – and that always pair really well with a nice, cold glass of Pureboost!
Don’t overthink it! Avocado toast is a simple yet nutritious breakfast choice. We like whole-grain toast with ripe avocado spread on top. Sprinkle it with salt, pepper, and a squeeze of lemon juice for added flavor. You can also add yummy toppings like sliced tomatoes, feta cheese, or a poached egg for extra protein. Pairs best with Citrus Sunrise!
Overnight Chia Pudding
Prepare a delightful and convenient breakfast by making chia pudding the night before. In a small container, combine 2 tbsp chia seeds, cacao powder, cinnamon, banana, and ½ cup milk of your choice (we love mixing almond milk and coconut milk for this). You can also add a scoop of protein powder if you’d like! Now you have a breakfast loaded with protein, healthy fats, and filling fiber, providing sustained energy throughout the morning. We love to enjoy ours with Tropical Spark.
Just like the ones you order at Starbucks, but wayyyy better. Egg bites are a fantastic make-ahead breakfast option. Simply crack six to twelve eggs into a bowl and mix in cheese and your favorite veggies like spinach, onions, peppers, broccoli, and mushrooms. Pour the mixture into muffin tins and bake for 15 to 18 minutes. Goes wonderfully with a nice, cold glass of Green Mojo!
Banana pancakes are a perfect quick and portable breakfast option that even the kids will love! Mix an egg with half a mashed banana, a quarter cup of oats, and a teaspoon of chia seeds. Sprinkle in cinnamon and vanilla extract. Cook the mixture in an oiled pan, creating two to three mini pancakes or double the recipe for more! These pancakes are rich in fiber and protein and are so satisfying. Best enjoyed with our new perfectly crisp & subtly sweet ACV Cider Crush blend. Something about the apples with the cinnamon and vanilla…. mmmm
For a portable and nutritious breakfast option, create a breakfast wrap! Scramble eggs with your choice of veggies, add some cheese or your favorite breakfast meat. Wrap it all up in a whole-grain tortilla and enjoy it on the go. Protein and fiber, on the go! Don’t forget your Tangerine Spark Pureboost!
And don’t forget to hydrate!
In addition to a nutritious breakfast, it's crucial to prioritize hydration in the morning. After hours of sleep, your body needs to replenish its fluid levels. For a hydration & energy boost all in one, simply start your day by mixing a packet of your favorite Pureboost with a glass of cold water. You’ll get a surge of vitamins and electrolytes plus a crash-free, jitter-free energy boost to help you make the most of your day. And if you’re running late, just throw a packet in your bag! They travel well.
Life can be busy, but that doesn’t mean you should skip your breakfast! In order to be energized and present all day long, your body is going to need fuel. By incorporating these delicious and easy-to-prepare breakfast options into your morning routine, you can start your day off right. Enjoy together with your favorite Pureboost for an added hydration, vitamin & energy boost. Now, you’re ready to tackle your day with vitality and focus, no matter what’s in store. Go get ‘em!
