8 Healthy Breakfast Recipes
We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but most of us eat whatever comes into our hands, just to fill our stomachs up. Eating a healthy breakfast, rather than an unhealthy one, means taking in necessary nutrients and just enough calories to get you through to lunch and supply you with energy. A healthy breakfast is the best basis of a good day, and healthy lunch and dinner. If you start your day by eating junk food, you’re likely to continue in that manner for the rest of the day. On the other hand, making it a habit to have a healthy breakfast every morning will promote your overall health and you’ll establish discipline in your diet. If you’d like to have healthy breakfasts each morning, but you don’t have an idea how to start, here are 8 recipes to help you with that.
1. Apple-nut-oat bran muffins
Apples as well as oat bran are packed with fiber and slow-releasing carbohydrates that keep your energy levels stabile for hours while a half of a handful of almonds, walnuts or hazelnuts will provide you with good amounts of protein and healthy fat.
Preheat the oven to 365 degrees Fahrenheit. Crack two eggs into a blender glass, add one and a half Granny Smith apple (chopped), 6 tablespoons of oat bran, a half of a handful of chopped nuts, half a teaspoon of cinnamon and a half a sachet of baking soda (you can also put a little honey if you want). Then add half a cup of water and blend until you see that the mixture has become homogenous. While the dough is blending, you can place muffin baking cups or papers into the muffin tray, and then pour the dough straight from the blending cup into the papers/cups. You can fill them up to the top as they won’t grow much. You will get 6-7 muffins from this amount. Put the muffin tray into the oven and bake for around 20 minutes. Eat no more than 2 muffins per day, as otherwise you’d eat too much fiber.
