15 Energizing Breakfasts To Help Kick Start Your Day

Breakfasts are really important. A good breakfast can make your whole day much easier. If breakfasts are important to you, you probably already have a few go-to recipes, however, it can get a bit redundant. Doing the same old breakfasts over and over again – they lose their magic. This list offers a few easy energising breakfasts, which will spice up your day. Some, literally. 

1. Veggie Scramble 

A lot of breakfasts come with scrambled eggs and they are definitely one of my favourite breakfast options. If you want to add a bit of variety, you can try adding some vegetables to your scrambled eggs. It doesn’t even necessarily need to be a breakfast, this recipe would also be great for lunch or dinner, but it’s sure to help kick start your day if you have it in the morning. This particular veggie scramble is with onions, tomatoes and spinach, but you can throw in anything you like.

2. Peanut Butter and Fruit Breakfast Roll 

If you think that breakfasts can be a hassle sometimes, you’ll change your mind once you add this into your routine. Surprisingly, you could actually prepare this the night before and have it waiting for you in the morning. It packs peanut butter, cottage cheese and fruit. The cottage cheese adds some extra nutrition. You can swap it out for cream cheese, ricotta or just do the recipe without it.

This smoothie is packed with healthy vitamins and is sure to wake you up in the morning.

6. Hot Chocolate Porridge 

This is my favourite type of porridge and I often make it when I get bored of my go to honey, cinnamon and walnut recipe. This particular recipe is sugar free, tastes like an amazing, warming hot chocolate and it’s ready in five minutes. It’s high in fibre, antioxidants and protein, which means that it will keep you full and energetic till lunch.

This smoothie tastes like a milkshake, but is better for you and it should keep you filled up till lunchtime. This recipe, or rather list of ingredients that you put in a blender, is inspired by a little coffee shop on the Puerto Rican coast. It’s a smoothie with banana, almond milk, flax, vanilla, cinnamon.

8. Avocado And Egg Flatbread 

Forget avocado on toast. Avocado on flatbread – yum! This recipe does not require you to make the dough yourself, but honestly, making flatbread dough is so easy. It’s literally just flour, water and salt.

Here’s a little recipe for you: You take a few tablespoons of flour (it does depends on how much flatbread you want to make) and add to it some salt, though you can add other spices or herbs such as smoked paprika, coriander, etc. Pour some warm water in a cup and then gently start adding that water to your dough. You add a little bit, mix with the flour, a little bit more, etc. If you add too much water, then add some more flour.

In the end you should get a neat little bowl of dough, which doesn’t stick to your hands. Leave it to rest for 20-30 minutes while you make your avocado and egg. After it’s rested, you can transfer it to a clean, flat surface (if it wasn’t on one already/ e.g. chopping board), pour some olive oil over it, knead it for a minute or so, until it’s covered in oil all over and then use your hands to form a flat, round (or somewhat round) shape.

While you shape your dough, you can already have a pan heating up, it has to be really hot. When you are satisfied with the shape, throw the flatbread on the pan and cook it through. It should bubble up a bit, and slightly change colour, that’s when you know to flip it. You’ll get a bit of char, a warm soft bread and the satisfaction that you made it yourself.
