Healthy Breakfast Ideas
Oh breakfast, the meal of all meals. Breakfast is something that I’ve always been a lover of. I’m not going to lie, as a child, I was a HUGE cereal fan and I still am. However, I remember going crazy with the Cocoa Puffs and…my all-time favorite, HoneyComb!
There’s just something about sweet, crunchy cereal that makes me want to eat it until all of the milk in my bowl is completely gone.
Today we’re talking all things healthy breakfast! We have hundreds of healthy breakfast options here on Fit Foodie Finds and we’re rounding up all the fan favs. PS: most of these are great for meal prep and require less than 10-ingredients!
What is a Balanced Breakfast?
We know sometimes it’s easier to just grab a bar and go instead of taking the time to make a breakfast, but there really isn’t anything better than a homemade balanced breakfast from your own kitchen.
We are all about balance here at Fit Foodie Finds. This means eating healthy when you can and not feeling bad about it if you can’t! When it comes to breakfast, we strive to get a little bit of everything: whole grains, protein, fruit, veggies, and fiber in our breakfast!
Here’s what you should strive for when looking for healthy breakfast options:
Whole Grains (complex carbs): whole grains are not only good for energy but also for…pooping! That’s right, they help speed up digestion. Some of our favorite whole grains to eat in the morning include oatmeal, sprouted bread, and whole grain English muffins.
Protein: Protein in the morning is great for keeping you fuller longer. Some of our favorite breakfast protein sources include eggs, nut butter, bacon, turkey sausage, and hard cheeses.
Fruit/Veggies: When is it not good to eat fruit and veggies?! A good rule of thumb is to try and get in at least 1 fruit and (or) veggie in during breakfast. This will help set you up for success later in the day!
Fiber: Fiber is another great thing to load up on in the morning. Fibers aids in keeping you fuller longer and going #2. Some of our favorite fibrous foods include whole grains, bananas, berries, potatoes, and chia seeds.
Healthy Fats: Don’t be afraid to eat fat! We love eating healthy fats in the morning such as avocado, olive oil, chia seeds, and nuts.

Healthy Oatmeal Recipes
Featured Healthy Breakfast: Stovetop Steel Cut Oatmeal
Steel-cut oats are essentially whole oat groats cut into 3 or 4 pieces to create smaller oat groats. They feel like thick pieces of rice when uncooked and their cooked texture has a chewy bite to it.
Below we’re sharing our favorite basic steel cut oats recipe made on the stovetop. It only calls for 2 ingredients – steel cut oats and a liquid. You can always add in fruit, maple syrup, and spices to add variation. Enjoy!
- 1 cup steel cut oats
- 3 cups unsweetened almond milk (any kind of milk or water work too.)
- Place 1 cup steel-cut oats and 3 cups liquid into a medium pot.
- Bring to a boil over high heat while continuously stirring.
- Then, reduce heat to low and let simmer, uncovered, for 20-30 minutes, stirring every so often.
- Cook until steel-cut oats are thick and creamy.
