Breakfast is a very important meal! The food you eat in the morning can have an impact on how hungry or satisfied you feel later in the day.

And if you choose the right stuff, it can also give you some great energy! All good things.

We asked a bunch of healthy people to share what THEY eat in the mornings. Because it can be good to know that you have more options than that same old bowl of cereal.

These people think about healthy and delicious eating a LOT. We talked to registered dietitians, personal trainers, health editors, book authors, nutritionists, and healthy food writers. Some are legit experts with degrees after their names, and some are more like you and me. Only…a bit more focused on eating green things.

And here’s what they suggested.

1. Baked Egg in Avocado

2. Almond Butter and Salami on Toast, with Fruit

“My husband finds it totally weird, but I’ve recently fallen in love with adding a couple pieces of thinly sliced uncured salami to my whole wheat almond butter toast in the mornings. It adds a bit of savoriness that tastes especially good with some fruit on the side. Hey, you’d eat almonds, salami, and bread together on a cheese plate — this is just the breakfast version.”

3. Greek Yogurt With Protein, Chocolate, and Blood Orange

“I love this breakfast because it has well balanced macronutrients (macros) at 40% carbs, 30% protein and 30% fat. It is high protein Greek yogurt with a scoop of whey protein “pops,” super dark chocolate and blood orange. Who doesn’t love chocolate for breakfast?? It balances my blood sugar to give me stable energy throughout the morning, has tons of protein, and awesome antioxidants in that bright red blood orange.”

4. Eggs and Avocado Toast with Blueberries

“This is one of my all-time favorite breakfasts — Ezekiel toast with smashed avocado and a poached egg, topped with fresh herbs, sea salt, and red pepper flakes. It’s the perfect combo of whole grains and healthy fats. The side of blueberries and the herbs lend a dose of antioxidants. And the capsaicin from the red pepper turns the metabolic fire up a touch.”

5. Flaxseed and Almond Milk Pancakes

“Who doesn’t love pancakes for breakfast? Unfortunately most pancakes aren’t too healthy for you, especially when you top it with sugar-filled syrup. However, when you make them out of flaxseed flour and almond milk, you’ve made a perfectly healthy, delicious morning favorite. Top with some butter and you are set.”

6. Wild Blueberry Ginger Smoothie Bowl

7. Fruit, Veggies, and Sprouted Toast

“Most days of the week I keep it simple for breakfast with a green smoothie (not pictured) and a plateful of fruit with sprouted toast. I like smashed avocado with hemp seeds on half, and almond butter with sunflower seeds on the other.”

8. Vanilla Green Protein Smoothie

“We love these little nuggets. They’re super satisfying and a great breakfast when we’re in a hurry. They’re the perfect on-the-go protein, veggie and fiber combo to start our morning! We easily whip them up and often make them in advance and put them in the fridge or freezer and then grab them on the way out the door with a piece of fruit.”

10. Scrambled Eggs and Arugula

12. Avocado Smoothie


“I’m often rushing around in the morning, and smoothies make a great portable breakfast. My latest favorite is made with 1/2 a small avocado, 1/2 cup plain yogurt, 1/2 cup milk, 1 frozen banana, 3 frozen green figs (sold frozen at Trader Joe’s), 1/2 tsp vanilla and a large handful of baby spinach or kale. You’d never guess something so green would taste so good!”

13. Healthy Pancakes


14. Whipped Banana Oatmeal

15. Kale Smoothie Bowl

“I love powering up my mornings with this simple vegan Kale smoothie bowl. It’s under 300 clean calories and a whopping 10 grams of fiber!

1 Frozen banana
1/2 cup frozen kale
1/3 cup unsweetened almond or coconut milk
1/4 cup Vegan yogurt (Greek yogurt or Kefir works too)
1 TBS chia seeds
1/4 tsp cinnamon

Fiber up and enjoy!”

16. Crustless Spinach Quiche

17. Eggs, Bacon, and Spinach Muffin with Ezekiel Toast; Coffee with Soy Milk

18. Chocolate Brownie Oatmeal

19. Avocado and Salmon Omelette

20. Homemade Soup

“I’m a fan of non-traditional breakfast. Today breakfast is one of my favorites: homemade soup. Turkey bone broth with carrots, celery and noodles is a nice blend of protein, carbs and fiber, and a soothing and nourishing way to start my day.”

21. Ham-Crusted Quiche

22. Avocado Hummus Toast

“Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so I want to eat something that will leave me full and satisfied. This avocado hummus toast is one of my favorite savory breakfast dishes because it is packed with protein and healthy fats that will keep me going for hours!” 

23. PB&J with Fruit

“A healthy breakfast is a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with a side of fruit. Although not a typical breakfast, for me, it is a very filling and satisfying meal. The bread comes from a local bakery, the peanut butter and jelly are both homemade and the fruit comes from our CSA box. It’s simple, but with exceptional ingredients, it feels like a 3-star Michelin meal.”

24. Veggie Frittata

“Here’s a vegetable frittata I made for breakfast recently, using leftover broccoli from the previous night’s dinner and a fresh tomato on top. I love breakfasts that include vegetables because it makes it easier to get those 5 servings in by the end of the day. And there’s always some vegetable in the fridge that needs to be used up.”

25. Baked Oatmeal

“I am by no means a “morning person” so for me, making breakfast ahead of time is crucial. ​I love this recipe for Baked Oatmeal because I can prep it ahead of time, it has only a few ingredients and it’s loaded with fibre to keep me full for the morning. To keep things interesting I switch the type of fruit I add, some times it’s berries, apples or even pumpkin puree.”

26. 3-Ingredient Pancakes

“We love these because they are so easy to make when you have a pancake craving. They are light and fluffy and packed with protein and unlike most pancakes, they aren’t only carbohydrates, so they keep you satiated for hours, preventing cravings and overeating. Each pancake is only 75 calories!” 

27. Egg, Avocado, and Cheese Toast

“My favorite breakfast is without a doubt, avocado toast with a fried egg. Not only is it a great source of protein, healthy fats and whole grains but it keeps me satisfied until lunch! And it’s insanely delicious.” 

28. Ham and Egg Cups

“This dish is SO easy and a great source of protein! Lay a slice of ham in our muffin tin. In a separate bowl, combine 4 eggs, 3/4 cup milk, 1 cup of cheese. Pour mixture into each muffin tin. Bake for 20 min at 350. Done! A great breakfast dish loaded with protein!”
