Better Breakfast Recipes for the Work Week

The most important meal of the day happens to also be one of the busiest. The solution? Three-ingredient recipes that will reinvent your morning routine. Here are easy — and healthy — ways to enjoy your breakfast basics from English muffins to scrambled eggs.

MONDAY: Leftover steel-cut oatmeal reheats well in the microwave, so make a batch on Sunday and reap its benefits all week. After it’s warm, add a spoonful of peanut butter and several banana slices for a dose of protein, potassium, and flavor.

TUESDAY: Split an English muffin in half. Then, spread either 1/4 cup of low-fat cottage cheese or ricotta cheese on the halves. Finally, top with fresh or frozen blueberries and place in toaster oven on medium-to-high until the berries bubble.

WEDNESDAY: Mash half a ripe avocado on a piece of crusty multi-grain toast and top with two slices of cooked turkey bacon. (Here are fifteen more ways to dress up toast.)

THURSDAY: Transform your plain nonfat Greek yogurt into a breakfast parfait by simply adding one tablespoon of Nutella hazelnut spread and a few slices of strawberries.

FRIDAY: Eat scrambled eggs in a fraction of the time by cooking them in a microwave: Find that recipe, along with other healthy microwaveable breakfast-in-a-mug ideas, right here.)
