Top 5 Healthy Breakfast Ideas: How to Think Outside the Cereal Box

2. Breakfast wraps

Sometimes your hectic morning schedule calls for a meal on the go. Breakfast wraps made with brown rice tortillas or coconut Paleo wraps are a quick, nutritious option without energy-crashing sugar and gluten.

For savory wraps, try pairing scrambled eggs and guacamole (if no egg intolerance) or make a classic BLT with nitrite-free bacon. Want a sweeter wrap? Layer thinly sliced apples with unsweetened coconut yogurt and walnuts, or go with fresh berries and almond butter. Easy to grab-and-go, and so yummy that leftovers won’t be a problem!

3. Protein shakes

Protein shakes are the ultimate in breakfast convenience! They have the valuable nutrients you and your family need, and the flavor combinations are endless. Use a high-quality, dairy- and soy-free protein powder for adults and older kids. For toddlers, freshly ground flaxseed or chia seeds provide plenty of protein.

Protein shakes are also the perfect chance to sneak in leafy greens, plus tasty fiber from berries, unsweetened shredded coconut, or cacao nibs. Just be sure to leave out dairy (a frequent source of food intolerances) and fruit juice (as much sugar as cola) and use almond or coconut milk instead.
