What’s the best thing to eat for breakfast? All the good things! This roundup of 37 quick and easy, healthy and delicious breakfast ideas will give you all the sustenance and energy you’ll need to keep you going all day long.

When the alarm goes off in the morning, rudely interrupting your peaceful slumber to alert you it’s time to get going, breakfast is likely the last thing on your mind.

Food is fuel, and after being asleep all night, we need a major refill come AM. It’s time to get the energy we need to be alert and power through our day (with a little nudge from our friend caffeine, of course).

Whether we eat breakfast or not, and what that meal might be determines how we’ll feel for the next several hours — dazed and confused, or energized and ready to slay the day. We think we’ll take the latter.

But let’s be real for a minute. We admit, we’re not always on top of our breakfast game, especially on hectic mornings as we wait out traffic. On other frenzied mornings, it becomes something we sacrifice all together for five more minutes of sleep. And as delicious as those few extra z’s may be, they’re nowhere near as delicious as a hearty breakfast burrito or a piping hot bowl of oatmeal with all the fixins.

We know we can do better, we just need a little inspiration and a game plan.

Even if you’re not a morning person, with a bit of planning, it is possible to hit the snooze and have your breakfast, too. And if you’re not a breakfast person, we bet you will be after browsing through these easy, healthy, and totally tempting recipes.

So let’s rise and shine with this list of yummy brekkies!

How to Make an Easy Breakfast On the Go

We all have mornings where we’re lucky if we can get out the door on time, and with matching socks no less. On mornings like those, breakfast tends to get demoted to the bottom of the priority list, or something that escaped our attention entirely.

That’s where these dishes come in.

You can whip them up on the fly, and some can even be prepped the night before, so no matter how early your AM wake up call, you can just grab and go!

Goldilocks-Approved Porridge and Oatmeal

Oats are one of the most nutrient-dense foods out there, boasting an abundance of health benefits, including plenty of vitamins, antioxidants, fiber, and avenanthramides (which have anti-inflammatory effects, and may also help lower blood pressure). These sweet and savory porridges will warm your belly and keep it full well until lunch time!

The Incredible, Edible Egg

We can always count on the nutritious, protein-packed, ever versatile egg to deliver on the breakfast front and help carry us through the day. Be it a casserole, a scramble, or a frittata, there’s no doubt eggs are one of our biggest morning staples.

Bowled Over

We still haven’t grown tired of the “food in bowls” obsession. There’s just something about the care and intentionality of building and layering a colorful meal that ignites our creativity and gets us excited about healthy eating.

Healthy Carby Things

Who says you can’t have a weekend-worthy breakfast on a Monday morning? These lofty pancakes, moist muffins, and the like will satisfy your carb cravings without derailing your diet (they’re high in protein and low in calories and sugar, and some are even refined sugar-free).
