21 Healthier Breakfasts You'll Want To Wake Up With

Nobody should have to start the day with deprivation.

1. French Toast With Berries

Looks and tastes decadent, but the whole grain bread, cottage cheese, and fresh berries mean you're doing more than just your taste buds a favor. (Pro tip: Using freshly baked bread instead of the processed, packaged kind makes all the difference.) Recipe here.


12. Paleo Sausage Egg McMuffin

Even if you're not Paleo, without the nutrient poor, white flour English muffin and highly processed cheese, this recipe is a way healthier alternative to anything you can get at a drive thru window. Recipe here.


19. Balsamic Onion and Potato Frittata

You don't need a recipe to make a frittata, but this one proves you also don't need cheese. (BTW, dsp stands for "dessertspoon" and 1 is the equivalent of 2 teaspoons.) If you want something cheesy but still healthy, try a goat cheese frittata — goat cheese is delicious and creamy but not as high in calories or fat as hard cheeses.

20. One-Minute, Single Serving Coffee Cake

This recipe uses oil or applesauce instead of butter and just a little bit of sugar, but what really makes it healthy is that you make only one serving at a time. Built-in binge barrier. Recipe here.
