Helllllo and good morning!
I don’t know about you, but breakfast has always been my favorite meal of the day.
There’s something so special about waking up and just treating yourself to a comforting, tasty meal. That, and the whole experience itself offers up such a a pleasant ritual that helps me set the tone for a balanced day ahead.
Most mornings you can catch me making one of these four hearty and delicious breakfasts, with coffee in hand of course.
Here are my four easy and delicious make-at-home breakfasts guaranteed to brighten your morning and whole day through.
1. Oatmeal with fruit, spices, and seeds/nuts
My #1 go-to in the morning is oatmeal. I know not everyone finds the mushy meal appetizing, but for me, it’s always been so comforting to enjoy a warm bowl of oats, fruits, and spices. It tends to remind me of fall and winters back home, wrapped under a cozy blanket watching a movie.
There are a few different combinations I particularly enjoy.
- Oats, banana, a scoop of peanut/almond butter, and hemp seeds
- Oats, blueberries, chia seeds, and walnuts
- Oats, chopped apples, cinnamon, raisins
It’s up to you weather you add water or milk to the mix. I tend to just add some water, microwave, and add my toppings after. Literally a solid breakfast ready in just a few minutes.
2. An acai berry smoothie (with/without almond butter)
I love how grocery stores sell frozen packets of acai mixes now, like Amazon Planet. It makes my morning smoothies so quick and easy.
To make a basic acai smoothie, simply mix one acai packet (loosened up under some water for 10 seconds), 1 cup of berries, almond milk, and perhaps a scoop of peanut butter.
Blend up, pour into a mason jar or to-go cup, and you are good to go.
3. Avocado toast on ezekiel bread with a kick
Can we just talk about how avo toast wasn’t a part of my life before a couple years ago? What a tragedy! Ever since having avocado toast at breakfast spots, I decided it was time I started making it at home.

My favorite way to make the meal is to toast up two slices of low-sodium ezekiel bread, slice/mash a medium-sized ripe avocado (with salt, pepper, and cayenne) and use a fork to spread the mixture onto the browned bread. Crunchy, creamy, so fulfilling. I promise this meal will keep you full ’til lunch—or beyond!
4. Egg scramble with veggies
Lastly, one of my breakfast staples is commonly an easy egg scramble with veggies and a bit of cheese. Whether you stick with whole eggs or just egg whites, this is a really protein-packed way to enjoy the start of your day.
Just scramble up some eggs, add a pinch of salt and pepper, a dash of milk, and cook evenly. My favorite veggies to add in are sautéed mushrooms, fresh spinach, red bell peppers, and fresh avocado. Sprinkle in a little sharp cheddar and you’ve got yourself a completely well-rounded breakfast that takes under 10 minutes to create.
Have you ever made yourself breakfasts similar to these faves of mine? If not, what kind of meals do you make at home?
If breakfasts not your thing, I totally get it. But, I’d love it if you tried one of my easy recipes and let me know how you liked it 😉
