You want to be that wake-up-feeling-happy-refreshed-and-energized-every-morning person. You want to be that gets-up-early-to-fit-in-a-workout-shower-grooming-breakfast-and-quiet-coffee-ritual person. You want to be that breakfast-is-the-most-important-meal-of-my-day person. You want to be that leaves-my-home-every-morning-in-a-state-of-serene-smiling-calm-and-ready-to-start-my-day person.

Sometimes, maybe you are that person. Other times…strictly speaking hypothetically here…perhaps you’re not. And on those “alleged” mornings, it’s vital that you don’t fall back on those quick grab-n-go convenience breakfasts full of sugar and fat that send your energy levels crashing, your mood nose-diving and your appetite raging just a few mid-morning hours later – a.k.a. all the breakfast foods that trigger a day of overeating and weight gain.

Time to rethink those “healthy” breakfast foods that are actually keeping you fat. For mornings that are rushed and hectic, having a few quick and easy healthy breakfasts already planned and prepped can make a huge difference on your entire day, your waist-line and you’re a.m. stress levels. And taking 5 minutes before you go to bed to pre-chop or soak foods you’ll be using the next day for breakfast will help mornings go even more smoothly.

These breakfast ideas are a great and delicious place to start.

Open-faced Egg, Tomato, Spinach & Avocado Toast

2 eggs

1 handful baby spinach

2 tomato slices

2 Tbsp alfalfa sprouts

¼ ripe avocado

1 slice sourdough rye bread

Pinch sea salt and cracked black pepper

While the bread is toasting, fry two eggs sunny-side up or over-easy in a skillet. Place the toasted bread on a plate and spread on the avocado with a butter knife (if it’s not yet ripe enough for easy spreading, simply cut the avocado into thin slices and place these on top of the bread). Top this with spinach, alfalfa sprouts and tomato slices. When the eggs are finished frying, layer them on top of your sandwich. Sprinkle over with a pinch of salt and pepper.
