healthy breakfast in DenverIt can often be a big challenge to eat a healthy breakfast in Denver when you’re constantly rushing to get out the door.  But making the effort will really pay off because it’s the most important meal of the day, after all.  If you’re watching your budget and your weight you might not want to buy your breakfast at cafes or coffee shops.  The money and the calories can definitely add up!  Here are some super easy ideas to start your day with a healthy breakfast in Denver.

Avocado Toast.  This isn’t a new idea but it certainly has been trendy lately.  And for good reason.  The healthy fat in avocado spread onto some multi-grain toast makes for a tasty and healthy breakfast.  For a good dose of protein top it with eggs cooked to your liking or some lean breakfast meat like turkey sausage or Canadian bacon.

Nut Butter Toast with Fruit.  Spread your favorite nut butter onto multi-grain toast and top with sliced bananas or strawberries.  Add a sprinkle of hemp or chia seeds for heart-healthy omega fatty acids.

Smoothie.  There may not be a faster, easier and more portable healthy breakfast!  Add some Greek yogurt for protein and a variety of fruits and veggies for plenty of vitamins and fiber.

Quinoa Salad.  Quinoa is rich in protein and makes a deliciously unexpected breakfast.  You can make it sweet by adding lots of fruit, fresh mint and a little honey and lime juice for a dressing.  Or make it savory with hard boiled eggs, chopped fresh tomatoes, basil and balsamic vinegar.  Make several servings in advance and you have breakfast in a hurry for the week.
