I’m constantly trying to think of quick, healthy meals that I can make for breakfast. I want something that is good for me, easy to make or that I can make ahead of time. And it has to taste good too! These two sandwiches fit the bill. They also make a great lunch.
Open Face Avocado & Hummus Sandwich
The title pretty much says it all! I toast a piece of gluten free bread and slather it with my favorite hummus (I love the roasted red pepper) and slices of avocado. Sprinkle with a little sea salt and serve with a side of sliced apples, and you have a delicious sandwich full of healthy fats, protein, and slow releasing carbohydrates. I ate this around 11:30 a.m. (yes, I had a very late breakfast that day!) and it kept me full until dinner at around 5:30 p.m.
- 2 Slices Gluten Free Bread (Toasted)
- 2 Tablespoons favorite Hummus
- 1/2 Avocado (Sliced)
- Pinch Sea Salt
Banana and Nut Butter Wrap
This couldn’t be easier. I just took a gluten free, brown rice tortilla and spread 2 tablespoons of almond butter over it. Then I sprinkled about 1 tablespoon of a flax seed mix (it is so delicious!) over it. I placed one banana in the center and rolled the tortilla around it. The almond butter helps it stick. Yum! So easy, and my kids loved this one too! (Hint: if you warm these tortillas in the microwave for about 20 seconds, they’re much easier to roll).
- 1 Gluten Free, Brown Rice Tortilla
- 2 Tablespoons favorite Nut Butter
- 1 Tablespoon ground flaxseed
- 1 whole Banana (peeled)
Here are some more yummy brunch recipes to add to your healthy repertoire:
Baked Eggs and Spinach (Eggs are full of protein and healthy fat)
Flourless Thumbprint Breakfast Cookies (These are so easy and super yummy!)
Oatmeal with Olive Oil (Sounds Strange but it’s really good!)
Quick ‘n Easy No-Bake Protein Bars (My family gobbles these up whenever I make them.)
Gluten Free Banana Pancakes (Full of fiber and natural sweetness.)
Lemon Blueberry Cooler (Full of protein and a refreshing way to start the day.)
I’d love to hear what you like to eat for breakfast. Let me know your favorites in the comments!
