From energizing high-protein breakfasts to easy, overnight oatmeals perfect for on-the-go breakfast, these recipes (and some healthy brunch options, too!) will…
Ideally, a good healthy breakfast will generally contain three or four food groups—carbs/starches, protein, fat, and fruit/veggies. This provides you with a balanced mix of nutrients to help you power through the morning. If you’re looking for some healthy breakfast foods to start your day with, here are 22 of them—along with recipes for ideas on how to enjoy each food as part of a tasty and well-rounded meal.

Oatmeal has a reputation for being boring, but it's far from it. Oats are plain on their own, but that's exactly what makes them such a perfect canvas to experiment on. Try this high-protein, healthy gingerbread egg white oatmeal. It has ingredients like molasses, pumpkin pie spice, and grated ginger—perfect to spice up your chilly mornings. Here, find this easy recipe for a delicious egg white oatmeal with winter.
A balanced morning meal is a great way to kickstart a healthy day, and getting enough protein is an important part of that balance.

Try adding them to oatmeal, using them for easy French toast, or combining them with Greek yogurt and oats (or flour) for amped-up pancakes. Here are 27 healthy and high-protein breakfast recipes that are easy to make!
The key to making mornings delicious and relaxing, though, is choosing breakfast recipes that can either be made ahead of time, or only take a few minutes to throw together.
