Make eating whole easy
One of the best aspects of following the Whole30 program is that Whole30 breakfast recipes are actually pretty easy. A quick Whole30-compliant breakfast can be as simple as a soft-boiled egg with some sautéed spinach if you want something savory, or an apple with almond butter for a breakfast that's a little sweet. But those healthy, Whole30 breakfasts can get a little bit repetitive day after day. (As anyone who's completed a Whole30 program can tell you: Egg boredom is a real thing.) So sometimes, you need to make yourself something a little different to stick with the plan—but you don't necessarily want to do any extra work in the kitchen. That's where these fast Whole30 breakfast recipes come in.
If you're unfamiliar with this program, or just want a refresher, the Whole30 rules are fairly straightforward: no added sugar, no booze, no grains, no legumes, no dairy. You can eat all the vegetables and fruit and meat that you want, though, and even if you're not following the Whole30 program, these quick and easy breakfast recipes are a great way to kickstart your morning with a healthy meal.
So whether you need a little inspiration to combat your egg boredom or just want a quick and easy breakfast recipe that will fill you up without making you feel ill, here are seven Whole30 breakfast recipes to make in 25 minutes or less.
Sweet Potato Toast
To make this sweet potato toast from Family Food on the Table, all you have to do is slice a sweet potato and then stick it in the toaster. (They recommend toasting it twice to make sure it's fully cooked and toasted.) The beauty of this sweet potato toast is that you can add whatever Whole30-compliant toppings you want, like almond butter and banana for a sweet breakfast or a fried egg for something savory.
Banana Almond Chia Pudding
You have to prep this banana almond chia pudding from Grits and Chopsticks the night before so it has enough time to "cook" in your fridge, but it only takes five minutes to put all five of the ingredients together in a jar. So when you wake up in the morning, all you have to do is grab your jar of chia pudding and head out the door.
Chicken and Apple Breakfast Sausage
If you've got 20 minutes to spare, you can make your own Whole30-compliant breakfast sausage with chicken and apple. These sausages from Paleo Running Momma can be baked in the oven or lightly fried on the stovetop—but no matter you how you cook them, they're sure to be a new favorite.
Banana Coconut Breakfast Bowl
If you've been looking for a Whole30-compliant substitute for a steaming bowl of oatmeal in the morning (since oats are definitely not compliant), try this warm banana coconut breakfast bowl from Fast Paleo. The recipe only takes two minutes to cook on the stove, and you only need five ingredients. It really couldn't be easier.
Eggs, Spinach, and Mushroom Skillet
When you're trying Whole30, you really can't go wrong with eating simple, whole foods, like eggs, spinach, and mushrooms—in this recipe from Manila Spoon, cooked in a single skillet for minimal clean-up and maximum flavor.
Cinnamon Apple Sweet Potato Waffles
Make the most of your sweet potatoes in the morning with this recipe for cinnamon apple sweet potato waffles from That Oven Feelin'. All you need to make this slightly savory, slightly sweet breakfast is an apple, a sweet potato, an egg, some cinnamon, and, of course, a waffle iron.
