7 Easy, Quick, Healthy and Delicious Breakfasts

  1. 1. 7 Easy, Quick, Healthy and Delicious Breakfasts by Agnieszka Weiner @ Tastes of Health
  2. 2. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day; any nutritionist will tell you that. It should supply us with sufficient good quality energy not only to start a new day well, but also to help us experience it with energy and enthusiasm. Breakfast, in truth, could be the biggest meal of the day as our body will have many hours to digest everything before we go to sleep again. This means we can be sure that whatever we have for breakfast (providing it is a healthy and well-balanced) will give us that energy and not that extra weight. Furthermore, as research shows, having breakfast every morning helps maintain a healthy weight as well as stay concentrated throughout the day. Although majority of us probably know or at least have heard about these facts, still lots of us skip breakfast very often. There are different reasons for different people of doing it but lack of time in the morning is a common excuse. But it shouldn’t be since breakfast can be prepared in minutes, and I am not talking here about reaching for a doughnut but having a good quality, nutritious meal. The breakfast recipes that I have included here are just like EQHD: Easy – no special cooking skills are required, Quick – almost all of them can be prepared in less than 10 minutes (some in less than 5!), pre-preparation in the evening can even save time in the morning, Healthy – they all include lots of health beneficial ingredients, Delicious – who wouldn’t like to have chocolate mousse for breakfast?! I am pretty sure that once you try them, you will never skip your breakfast again. For more, tasty and healthy recipes please visit .
