As the first and most important meal of the day, breakfast should ideally be something you look forward to, but in the rush to get everyone up, organised and out the door on time for work or school, there’s rarely time for anything more exotic than a piece of toast. Boring, isn’t it?!
Get your day off to a better start by trying some of these six healthy breakfast ideas that taste great, look appetising and take just five minutes to prepare:
1. Greek Yogurt and Blueberries

It’s simple, tasty, refreshing and healthy – what’s not to like?!
For a bit of variety, try switching the blueberries for strawberries, raspberries or a sliced banana. SCI MX is available to buy instore now.
2. Vegan Avocado Spread
Often described as a ‘superfood’, avocados are a natural source of more than 20 different minerals and vitamins and they’re also packed with fats that are good for your heart.
Flexitarian recommend mashing them up with a few other healthy ingredients and spreading them on a toasted bagel. Yum.
3. Raspberry and Mango Smoothie with Chia Seeds
If you really are pressed for time in the mornings then don’t skip a healthy breakfast, take it with you!
