Mornings can be crazy, am I right? Maybe you missed your alarm, took too long getting ready or the kids weren’t cooperating (or let’s face it, all three), which means making a healthy breakfast is out of the question.  I am right there with you, and sometimes I don’t want to take the time to make breakfast when buying something or pouring a bowl of my favorite sugary cereal is so much easier. And that’s also why I’m here to help! I think making a wholesome, filling breakfast shouldn’t take more than a few minutes to prepare, which is why I am such a fan of smoothies (and smoothie bowls!) and my yummy protein pancakes. Today I decided to share another one of my favorite quick and easy breakfasts- toast! Who knew there could be so many types?

For the bread, I used Ezekiel Bread, which you can find in the freezer section of your local grocery store. I have been able to find at in Target, Kroger and Sprouts! Just pop it in the toaster while you prepare the toppings, and your breakfast will be put together in no time at all.

    Avocado toast is one of my favourite quick breakfasts. I’m going to have to experiment with it more and try your version with strawberries and honey.

    These sound really good–I would have definitely never thought of an avocado/strawberry pairing, but i’m intrigued!

    Love these. I am a huge fan of the banana and peanut butter on toast. I will definitely be adding chia seeds next time. And avocado and strawberries? I wouldn’t think to do that but I make smoothies out of that so imagine it’s just as good.

  24. Rebecca @ Happily the Hicks

    September 21st, 2016 at 9:13 pm

    I love adding the chia seeds. Gives it a little superfood burst that’s awesome. And giiirrlll the avocado and strawberries is amazing! I don’t know how it works so well together, but it does! You need to try it :)

  25. Valerie Vanderheiden-Rath

    September 15th, 2016 at 11:53 am

    Yum! These all look so good. But I would have to say that Avocado Salsa Verde and Fried Egg would have to be the one I would be most inclined to try.

  26. Rebecca @ Happily the Hicks

    September 21st, 2016 at 9:13 pm

    Thanks Valerie! That one is totally my favorite too. I make it ALL the time for breakfast, especially when I’m craving something salty. :)
