New Year, New Resolutions, New Healthy Habits

Yohana Franco

We are officially in 2021 and we’re all looking forward to this new year! If I’m being honest, it felt like 2020 just flew by, don’t get me wrong it was a rough year, but despite being in lockdown, my days of binge watching Netflix shows still seemed short. By the time I paid attention to my Google calendar again, it was already time for me to take my finals.

Despite that, I am so glad that we are into this new year, and with that also comes all the new year’s resolutions. I will not lie, I am one of those that says I’m going to start eating healthier at the beginning of every year, but after this past year, I think it’s time to actually stick to this resolution. I know I am not the only one that has this on my 2021 goals list, so I have compiled a list of my top healthy breakfast ideas that I will be trying to make this year.

Avocado Toast with Egg

Avocado toast is one of my favorite breakfast meals ever since I moved into my own apartment back in 2018. I used to watch YouTubers make this all the time during their weight loss journeys and I always wanted to try it, but I was too lazy. Now it is one of my go-to breakfast items because it is simple yet so good and I love that I get my protein in. All you need is toasted whole wheat bread, an avocado, a sunny-side up egg. Lastly, just top it off with salt and pepper.

Berry Parfait

This has to be one of my favorite on-the-go breakfast ideas. It is seriously super quick and easy to make yet so healthy and filling. You just need to grab your mason jar, pour some light vanilla greek yogurt, your choice of berries, and some granola. You then repeat this process until you get to the top of the mason jar. It does not get any better than this.

Smoothie Bowls

I used to see my roommates making smoothie bowls all the time and I never really thought to try them out until recently. Now I find myself craving these all the time because of how quick and delicious they are, not to mention that the presentation is 10/10. All you really need is to throw your choice of frozen fruits into a blender with your choice of milk and your favorite toppings. You’ll probably spend more time making it look pretty then eating it because of how good it is!

Chia Pudding

Ahh yes, the famous chia pudding that we always hear about. I have been wanting to try this breakfast idea for a very long time now, but I have yet to actually make it. After seeing recipes for chia pudding all over Tik Tok, I think it is time to give it a try. You only need five small ingredients to make this – chia seeds, vanilla extract, honey, and your choice of milk, plus your choice of toppings. You will for sure find me making these and leaving them in my fridge overnight for the next morning.
