Start your day with a bowl of fresh, healthy and affordable breakfast, full of nutrients and beneficial compounds and get enough energy that will last throughout the day.
We all know that breakfast is an essential part of our everyday living, even so, we tend to choose eating unhealthy breakfast which in the end affects our overall eating regime.
For example, cereals are one of the most favorite categories of foods for many people. Unfortunately, many times, cereals are packed with artificial colors, processed sugars, preservatives, and taste boosters. All these ingredients lead to weight gain, instead of keeping our physique lean and healthy.
If you want to avoid this from happening, try focusing on a nutrition rich in protein, healthy fats and fiber. What’s more, just by making these seemingly drastic but favorable changes in your diet, you will let your body get rid of the everyday feeling of tiredness, hunger, irritability and weight gain.
Here are 10 fabulous, healthy breakfast recipes to get you on the right track of eating healthy and staying fit:
1. Overnight oats
Overnight oats are one of the easiest things to make, and the choices available nowadays are so numerous that you will eat different kinds every day. You can combine them with Greek yogurt, but coconut yogurt can get you better results, since it is dairy-free. To make it even better you can add some protein powder.
2. Chia pudding
Chia pudding is a whole meal that is even better solution than overnight oats. Chia pudding is grain-free, low-carb and it will help you control the blood sugar levels.
Here are the ingredients you will need:

3. No-grain pancakes

Add the cinnamon, chopped apple or pear, and coconut oil and leave it to boil. Simmer the mixture until you get the desired thickness.
