Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. However, choosing sweetened and fortified cereals can put your health at risk. Eating healthy doesn’t have to require hours of preparation. You can whip up a healthy breakfast that’ll boost your metabolism and ensure a happy, healthy, and productive day.
Here are some energy and nutrient-packed recipes you can whip up before you head to the office:
Lemon Yogurt Pancakes
Who said pancakes are only for diners? You don’t need an occasion to devour these sweet towers of joy, and what better way to start the day than with some fresh and light lemon yogurt pancakes?
Made with whole wheat flour and protein-packed with Greek yogurt, these pancakes are the perfect go-to healthy option to kick start your day at work.
Classic French Herbed Omelet
Eggs are synonymous with a heart-healthy breakfast. But eating the same type of egg breakfast every day can get a little boring. Giving your eggs the authentic French treatment can make breakfast the most exciting meal of the day.
This is an excellent choice for people in a rush, since it doesn’t require much thought or prep-time.
Milk, butter, and eggs combined definitely rank #1 on the health scale. Just a little whisk and a dash of herbs will give any omelet a much-needed upgrade. This dish has a soft, custardy texture with a golden brown exterior. Enjoy the buttery goodness on its own or complement the flavors with a side of toasted bread to kick-start your day!

Sweet Green Smoothie
For days when you can’t decide what to pick, a green smoothie will be your go-to option. This smoothie not only gives you an energy boost, but also helps maintain a healthy weight while cleansing your system before the day begins!
Made with leafy greens, fruit, a nutritional liquid base, and protein powder, this smoothie is loaded with antioxidants and tastes delicious. You can make this a night before and let it chill in the fridge overnight. If you’re feeling spontaneous, just pop all the ingredients in the blender, give it a good mix for a minute, and you’ll have a fresh glass of green ready to go! You can top it up with some chia or flax seeds for optimal nutrition.
