55 cheap and healthy breakfast recipes


Doughnuts, and eggs, and quinoa  bakes, oh my! At breakfast time, it's essential to fuel up with nutrient-packed ingredients to give you energy throughout the day (and may even prevent overeating and help with weight regulation). A healthy dose of fiber (think whole-grains and fruits and veggies) and protein (eggs, greek yogurt, lean meat) is generally a good way to start the day, since both help to keep you full for a longer period of time (compared to things like simple carbs — hello, bagels!). Below, we've split these meal ideasinto our sweet and savory options — scroll down to take a look!
