It’s official, back to school season is literally around the corner! So I’ve put together a list of some awesome ideas for breakfast to get you prepped and ready to hit the books. It’s not a secret that breakfast is my favourite meal of the day so of course I had to start off the back to school series with some super easy healthy breakfast recipes to keep you and your tummy happy. Eating a healthy breakfast will make the biggest difference in your mood, concentration and will keep you awake and energized in those uncomfortable desks, all lecture long.
I’m sure some of you love school, others can do without. But learning, whether you do it in a work environment, or a school environment, is always going to help you push further, and reach whatever goals you have for yourself. I love HealthNut Nutrition, it’s my passion and it allows to me learn and create new things every single day! And I would love to go back to school to study Nutrition. It would only increase my love for food and health and help me, help you, be even fitter, healthier and happier!
On that note, I’m going to be sharing my three favourite back to school breakfast recipes that you can make the night before so you don’t have to think about it in the morning, just grab and go. I’m also partnering up with the lovely peeps over at Manitoba Harvest to show you one of my favourite super foods, Hemp Hearts! My goal is to show you how easy it is to combine Hemp Hearts into different breakfast options so you can get the nutritional benefits from them like plant-based proteins and omega 3 & 6 fatty acids. Plus they’re Canadian so that makes them even cooler, haha!
My first healthy back to school breakfast option is my Mini Spinach and Mushroom Egg omelette. These are perfect to make at the beginning of the week to then store in the fridge for breakfast throughout the week. There’s protein from the egg, healthy fats from the coconut milk and lots of veggie power from the mushrooms and spinach. For all those savoury breakfast lovers, this one’s for you. These also work great as an afternoon snack when you get home feeling hungry, and want to keep it healthy. It happens to the best of us.
Next we’ve got a smoothie ‘cause you know I love me some blended veggies and fruit, sounds appetizing right? But seriously you can pack in so many nutrients into a single mason jar by blending it all up and drinking it first thing in the morning.
I love this Mango Berry Hemp Smoothie because it’s creamy, sweet and super energizing. Plus, the addition of Hemp Hearts gives you some plant protein – a great alternative to protein powders, which I know some people don’t like. Hemp Hearts add a creamy texture and work amazing in smoothies like this one. This next one has kind of been a new obsession of mine. My Peaches and Cream Overnight Oats has been a go-to lately when I know I’m going to be rushing the next morning, which happens a lot.. surprise surprise.
I made this with coconut milk yogurt and Hemp Hearts so it’s not only vegan but packed with plant-based protein to keep you full. There’s nothing worse than eating breakfast to then only be hungry in 30 min when you actually sit down for class. You’re going to love this one, trust me.
Whether you’re a parent, student or teacher, I hope these healthy ideas for breakfast help you stay on track for healthy, less hectic mornings and get you ready for the month of back to school.
