Simplicity is not only a thing of beauty it’s also another aspect of staying healthy. Like in this easy-to-assemble breakfast recipe. Prepare 2 slices of whole-grain sliced bread and toast lightly. In each separate slice, spread mashed avocado and sprinkle a little salt and pepper to taste for a flavorful and rich base. Then top each slice of bread with sunny-side-up eggs for a nutritious dose of protein. Now you have a well-rounded morning meal. Stack them in a clean and dry food container for easy transport.
Take your ordinary oatmeal to a whole new height by turning it tasty and savory. Prepare oats mixture as usual with milk or hot oil but instead of adding sugar or cinnamon, give a twist of savory taste by sprinkling a hint of salt and pepper and top with poached or over-easy cook egg then add a little amount of cheese for that extra yumminess.
Sunny-side-up or fried egg is the most preferred and great way of cooking an egg. Yet, how about baking a whole egg with cheese and veggies mix idea while skipping the fatty oil? Put the mixture in the cup. For on-the-go meals, make use of individual silicone molds to make it even more portable.
Just when you thought muffins from the microwave is impossible, think again. You can actually do this healthy breakfast trick by mixing ¼ cup of instant oats, a handful of berries, brown sugar and 1 egg in a mug. Mix and combine all ingredients until evenly done. Put in the microwave for 1 minute in high temperature. After 1 minute, check if the muffin is firm and tender already. If it’s still not in its desirable firmness then continue cooking for half a minute at a time until the muffin gets firm and ready to eat.
Bored of your ordinary bran or whole-grain toaster waffle top with syrup? Why not boost fiber and protein while cutting the sugar by replacing syrup with peanut butter. Spread 2 tablespoons of peanut butter on your waffle to make the twist and add a sprinkle of sesame seeds and raisins about 1 tablespoon and you can also top an extra peanut if you desire for a more delicious and nutritious twist on your morning meal.
This is probably one of the easiest ways to prepare an egg recipe for breakfast that is also less the carbohydrates.

Combine all ingredients and evenly divide the mixture in a lightly-greased muffin tin. Bake at 350F for about 20-25 minutes.
If you want a diversion from bakery muffin, then some plain cake-style donuts will do best for you. To make it more delicious have ¼ cup of dried fruits or almond on the side. And instead of matching it with a cup of coffee, why not settle for a glass of low-fat choco milk.
Sometimes we opt to choose for a lighter and easy on the tummy breakfast like fruit shakes and smoothies. To satisfy this craving, a choice of banana and peanut butter smoothie is one of the tasty smoothies you can easily prepare. Using a power blender, just blend 2 tablespoons natural peanut butter, 1 frozen banana, 1 cup almond or soy milk and a few ice cubes enough to make the smoothie.
