Healthy Breakfast Ideas

1. Loaded Blueberry Muffins – These gluten free muffins have some hidden veggies tucked away for a nutrient boost!

2. Green Smoothies – Check out our beginner guide to green smoothies to get started!

3. Overnight Oats – Steel cut oats are super healthy but time-consuming to make. This overnight method makes them easy peasy!

4. Pumpkin Oatmeal – If rolled oats are more your speed, dress them up with a little pumpkin power for extra vitamins and deliciousness.

5. Homemade Granola Bars – Granola bars make a great grab-and-go breakfast, and this homemade granola bar recipe skips all of the gross mystery ingredients in many store-bought varieties.

Wow!!!! I will try as soon as my exams finish and I'll have more time!!! My favourite healthy things are : porridge in the morning,not using sugar at all but stevia -not Dietor!not liquid!- and I am very lucky because my dad grows our own animals,so that I am sure I am eating anything transformed,or grown with who-knows-what (excluding the fish unluckily but...we can't also have our own lake or sea to fish xD) and also he cultivates our own vegetables,of every possible kind,very few are excluded. I will use them for sure to prepare these recipes ;)
