A healthy breakfast doesn’t have to be time-consuming or complicated. If you’ve got into the habit of eating breakfast every day, you may once have experience how tasking it’s to get things done within a short time while you catch up with your daily routine. Then you can pass up the low-nutrient-density snack foods that may come your way throughout the morning.

Many of these five 5 breakfast recipes included here can be put together quickly or even prepared the night before. Combine fresh in-season fruits or frozen fruits with raw nuts and seeds, or have whole-grain oatmeal topped with a variety of fruits, raw nuts, seeds, and cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice.
