Start your day with a healthy kick - without sacrificing flavor of course. Here are some breakfast ideas to get you started:


1. Breakfast bowl

Whip up a delicious smoothie bowl for a healthy, well-balanced breakfast. Use a blender to combine your smoothie ingredients, such as bananas, berries, spinach and acai powder. Don't forget to add a liquid of your choice, depending on the consistency you want. Remember that the more liquid you add, the thicker the result will be. Once blended, pour the mixture into a bowl and add your toppings. Berries, chia seeds and honey are some fan favorites.


2. Overnight oats

Skip the ready-made cereal and make your own oatmeal instead. These oats only take a few minutes to make the night before, and they're also an easy way to prep breakfast for the whole week. Simply fill up a container or jar with grains, toppings of your choice and milk or water. Pop it in the fridge and let the flavors fuse together while you sleep for an easy grab-and-go breakfast when the sun comes up. Try these overnight oat combinations from EatThisNotThat!, made with tasty yet healthy ingredients like berries, apples, oranges, nuts, chia seeds, carrots, honey, lemon, thyme and coconut.


3. Superfood toast

Take your toast to the next level by topping it with the superfoods that will boost your energy levels and keep you fuller longer. Of course you'll want to use whole grain brain bread for a nutritious base. Next, spread some nut butter over the slices and top it with banana slices and chia seeds. Avocado also makes a great spread for your morning toast. Simply season it with salt and pepper, or add some additional flavor by combining the avocado with cilantro, lime and chili flakes. If you want an extra protein boost, make some sunny-side up eggs to accompany avocado schmears or slices.
