By now, you’re probably aware that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Yes, we admit it.

For something better, here are 5 nutritious, easy, fast breakfast foods you should definitely make.
Gourmet breakfasts aren’t realistic everyday goals. But that doesn’t mean you should settle for a sugar rush first thing in the morning. Plus, those kinds of food leave you a little sad and hungry a complete 30 minutes later.
5 Nutritious, Easy, Fast Breakfast Foods
With these nutritious, easy, fast breakfast foods, you’d be surprised at how many healthy breakfast meals you can make without too much effort and with just a tiny bit of practice.
#1 Eggs Baked in Avocado
A combination of these two can never go wrong. You mostly make these in ovens, but to do it quicker, you can cook them in a pan over a stove. It’s perhaps one of the easiest elegant looking breakfast foods that every family member would be more than pleased to eat. The basic ingredients you’ll need are pretty darn obvious — avocados and eggs.
#2 Peanut Butter and Banana Overnight Oats
This is a breakfast item, but it’s a simple overnight oats recipe that tastes more like amazing dessert rather than a protein-packed breakfast. So if you’re into sweets, then you’ll really love this. The best part is that you can make this with just 5 ingredients. Prepare it during the night, stick it in the fridge, and have it for breakfast the next morning.
#3 Paleo Pancakes
Nothing says breakfast like the smell and the taste of pancakes. Ah, sweet, soft paleo pancakes — created from 3 healthy ingredients. It’s a cozy but nutritious breakfast for those of us who are on a grain-free and/or dairy-free diet.
If you’re on a diet that doesn’t let you eat food with dairy in it, you can use this to replace the classic pancake recipe that you know so well.
#4 Sausage and Egg Muffins
To be honest, these egg and sausage muffins are so simple, you actually don’t need a complicated recipe for them. These muffins are so versatile.
Of course, if you want to keep it vegan, you can just leave out the sausage and add in some bell peppers or mushrooms. The other great thing is you don’t have to use sausage all the time. You can put in bacon or chorizo.
One muffin has almost 9 grams of protein; which means, you can be full all morning!
#5 Vegetable Frittata
You want breakfast that’s the epitome of healthy eating? Look no further than this delicious and healthy vegetable frittata. Frittatas are basically Italian versions of omelets. It’s full of fresh flavors and takes less than 30 minutes to put together.
