We all love eggs and more importantly eggs for breakfast, but there could be a myriad of reasons why you could be looking for a quick and tasty breakfast that doesn't use eggs.
- Recent or long-term vegan?
- Accidentally smashed a whole carton of eggs opening the fridge after your partner left them precariously balanced on a shelf?
- Kids decided to eat them all without letting you know and you find out when your craving?
- Just want to see what else you can eat for breakfast?
These are all valid reasons to go for an egg-free brekkie every now and then.
And after making the decision to forego eggs, some of these extra thoughts could start racing through your head as well.
- I won’t get enough protein now
- I’ll be ravenous before lunch
- I’ll spend so long cooking and cleaning I won’t have time to eat
But if you know what to do, none of these mental obstructions above have to be true and then it becomes easy to find a quick and tasty breakfast that doesn’t use eggs.

Yes we know, pudding for breakfast is a good thing right?
Chia seeds are a great way to get in your fibre, healthy fats, vitamins, minerals and much more.
This is another easy one to prepare in advance or even store in the fridge for when you’re short on time.
Buy the chia puddings already made or learn how make them yourself using our guide below.
- To make the base, add chia seeds to a milk of your choosing (looking to make your own plant milk?)
- Then add what you want on top
- Throw in some cacao nibs or stir in some cacao powder for extra magnesium and all the indulgence of chocolate
- Chop up some nuts for the fatty acids and crunch
- Layer some sliced fruit or a handful of berries on top
Or better yet, you can modify our Super Cubes chia smoothie recipe using these extra steps below.
- Instead of blending the chia seeds add them after blending everything else
- Simply stir them in, then wait at least 10 minutes for them to settle and gelatinise
- This adds a jelly-like quality and a bit of crunch to your chia pudding
There are so many options when it comes to making a healthy and nutritious chia pudding for breakfast.
So experiment a liitle, use what you have available and create a chia masterpiece!
You heard it right.
You know it to be true, avocado is the only one for you!
We’ve seen the avocado to be a great addition to a lot of dishes but did you know it can even be a stand-alone meal or snack?
If you’re game to try it, open up your avo, take out the pip, scoop out some of the flesh to make a well and add in some olive oil, lemon, salt and cracked pepper.
Then sit back and enjoy eating it with a spoon.
Full of healthy fats, fibre and antioxidants this is simultaneously satiating, healthy and really tasty.
Plus, it’s so quick to make and almost no clean up!
