5 Easy and Healthy Gluten-Free Breakfast Ideas

by Heather DiBiasi MS, RDN

The idea that breakfast is the most important meal of the day may be a little bit of an exaggeration. However, according to many studies and my experience as a dietitian, many people who skip breakfast tend to binge eat later at night. I know we are all busy trying to get kids on the bus or ourselves ready for work in the morning, but don’t make that a habit and risk not getting some good nutrients to start your day.  No matter how you spend your day, you’re going to need the energy to pull through until lunch without getting tired or hangry. So here are my five easy, healthy breakfast ideas to get your day off to a good start!

Smoothies

Smoothies are my go-to option for when I’m in a rush in the morning -- and let's be honest that’s most days!  They are super quick to make, but if you want to speed up the process, you can pre-bag all the ingredients you want to use and stick them in the fridge or freezer. This way, all you have to do it throw them in a blender with some liquid in the morning, and you have yourself a meal. However, please understand that not all smoothies are created equal. Click here to check out my FREE smoothie e-book with the perfect smoothie formula and 10 recipes to help get you started!

Scrambled Eggs

Eggs are a fantastic breakfast in the morning. They are loaded with protein and healthy fats to keep you full, and they only take a few minutes to make. Also, I always say that veggies during breakfast time are an incredibly healthy bonus, so why not add them to boost the nutrition content of your meals? It is so easy to throw some spinach in with your eggs! Alternatively, if you’re feeling fancy, you can add some peppers and onions. Plus, there are also many recipes where you can prep egg muffins ahead of time so all you have to do is microwave them and you’re good to go!

Protein Overnight Oats

If you’re looking for something hearty to start your day, look no further than overnight oats. Overnight oats are so versatile and serve as the ultimate quick and easy breakfast. FYI, most oats get packed in facilities that also process wheat, so make sure your oats are gluten-free certified. To make overnight oats, add uncooked oats and protein powder into a container and cover it with a liquid. I love using unsweetened vanilla almond milk for this! Mix well and place into the fridge overnight so the oats can soak up the liquid. In the morning you can dress it up with toppings and enjoy it warm or cold. The toppings depend on the flavor combination you want to make. Some delicious toppings for overnight oats are nut butter, fruit, seeds or nuts. This Pumpkin Spice Overnight Oats recipe will give you those fall vibes on a busy morning.

Yogurt Bowl

Yogurt can be a great option for breakfast but know there are many options out there, some healthier than others. The most nutritious way to enjoy a yogurt bowl is to get plain greek yogurt and add fresh fruit to sweeten it up. You can also add other mix-ins like nuts, seeds, unsweetened coconut flakes, cacao nibs, cinnamon, extracts, or pumpkin spice for the fall! If you want to add more sweetness, I would recommend a little stevia, monk fruit or a drop of honey or maple syrup. Drizzling peanut butter or whipping it into your yogurt is a delicious way to enjoy it. My favorite combo is plain greek yogurt, flax seeds, cinnamon, vanilla extract, peanut butter, and ½ banana – when it’s all together, it tastes like healthy banana pudding!

2 Hard Boiled Eggs Apple and Peanut Butter

This is an easy makeshift meal that I like to put together for breakfast or lunch when I have nothing prepared. It has all your essentials for a healthy breakfast, which is protein, fat, and fiber. This easy go-to meal should keep you full for hours!
