Breakfast is an important meal in our house. The kids need it to get off to a good start to their day and be energized for school. I need it because I exercise early in the morning before everyone wakes up and I need to refuel after my workout.

Sometimes for myself, I’ll just make a smoothie but I’ll still need something else.

The kids and I love chia pudding for breakfast. I have made this breakfast so many times and it only takes about five minutes to prepare the night before. In the morning I just add some sliced bananas and it’s ready to eat. Our favourites are Vanilla Chia Pudding and Chocolate Chia Pudding.
*Tip – To save time, put all the ingredients in a mason jar, put the lid on and shake, shake, shake until it’s combined.

  1. Yummy! These are great breakfast ideas and tasty, too. I recently attended a vegan cooking class. I was surprised just how good everything tasted, considering it was all gluten-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free. Whatever sweetener was in the food was naturally occurring. I just wish I had more time to cook these dishes.

  2. All I can say is yum. I mainly have porridge for breakfast, today I had eggs, not very exciting. I have made a pact with myself to eat better and to try new recipes. This is a very timely post for me. Chia is really versatile and I use it a lot.

  3. OMG what can I say… Ugghh.. I am drooling over each and everyone of your 11 suggestions. OMG and for number 7 looks totally yummy!

    But I totally agree that setting serious goals like to help eating right and balance is a huge must. This is one of my biggest problems too. But like you shared, even if we prepare the breakfast the night before, at least it’s done so when the morning comes, it’s no stress or worries about eating especially for moms like yourself and I that are always on the go!

    Thanks again for sharing, I LOVE THIS!!!


  4. Easy breakfast ideas that are also delicious. No cook oats have been a staple for me growing up as a child in Jamaica. You just soak your oats in water, add milk to sweeten and we were good to go. As I grew older, adding fruits and a pinch or cinnamon or raisins to it became normal, but I have never seen it or had it with yogurt, so I will be trying this variation.

  5. I’m noticing a theme: this winter it’s bananas, this past summer it was watermelon. Seems like you are good at picking out a fruit each season and then coming up with yummy recipes that one can make with that fruit. Is that intentional, or just how your muse strikes you?

  6. Great post! i am in an huge breakfast rut! i have being doing bagel thins and nut butter for over a year straight! It has not gotten old but I feel like I need to jazz things up with this!
