The Best 40 Healthy Breakfasts To Get You Going On A Busy Morning

I know you probably hear it all the time, but breakfast truly is the most important meal of the day.

It might seem convenient to skip breakfast when you are running late, but that’s a bad idea. Skipping breakfast leads to powerful food cravings later which typically results in weight gain.

Plus, you just won’t feel your best running on empty.

Instead of forgoing breakfast use these quick, satisfying recipes that are perfect for when you’re on-the-go. You can easily prepare many of these in advance (such as the night before).

Experiment with these 40 healthy breakfast recipes for busy mornings to see which ones you like best and which ones are easiest for you. Then pick a few to have as staples!
