Family-Favorite Oatmeal

When you eat in the morning, you not only give your body energy, nutrition and substance to start the day off right, but also improve your health. Eating breakfast does not necessarily mean that you have to prepare an enormous time consuming meal. Here are some quick and delicious breakfast ideas the whole family will enjoy.

Fruit smoothie
This is great for a quick breakfast on the go. Blend up your favorite fruit and add orange juice, ice or milk to taste. Fruit smoothies will fill you up and are the perfect way to jumpstart your day.

Oatmeal
It’s a simple, healthy and yummy way to start your day. Oatmeal contains a lot of fiber and keeps you satisfied until lunch. If you have five minutes to spare, you can fix the oatmeal on the stove. Otherwise use the microwave for instant oatmeal. Add some nuts, fruit, cinnamon and honey to your morning oatmeal and you have a delicious, nutritious breakfast. 

Wholesome eggs
Eggs are very versatile and enjoyed by people of all ages. Spice up your omelet by adding some ham and cheese or make your scrambled eggs with some tomatoes, onions, maybe red and green bell peppers, black pepper and herbs. It’s simple, quick and incredibly tasty.

Breakfast sandwich
Toast an English muffin, some whole wheat bread or a bagel and top it with poached eggs, peanut butter and sliced bananas, or cream cheese and jelly. It’s always a great breakfast, and can be whipped up in no time.

Cereal
Cereal with milk, sliced fruit and nuts and raisins can be a great quick breakfast. Avoid cereals that contain large amounts of sugar and choose the ones high in fiber, vitamins and minerals.  It’s easy and tastes great.

Breakfast Burrito
Burritos make a fun breakfast and are prepared in next to no time. Simply scramble some eggs and put them in a tortilla together with cheese, sausages, salsa or other favorite toppings. Roll up and it will melt in your mouth. 

Yogurt with granola and fruit
Spruce up your yogurt by adding some granola and fruit. In a small bowl, layer in yogurt, then granola, then your favorite fruit and top everything with a drizzle of honey. This breakfast is not only quick to make, but it’s also super healthy and keeps you from getting hungry later on in the morning.

Breakfast Bar
A breakfast bar is the ideal breakfast choice for the overscheduled to get a nutritious head start of the day. Make up a batch the night before and eat them on the run to school or work. Use honey instead of sugar and include lots of healthy dried fruits and nuts. 

A sweet treat
Breakfast at home can be special without being complicated. Start your day with some pancakes, waffles or French toast topped with fresh fruit and maple or fruit syrup.
