"I never skip breakfast and love making a big brunch. On weekends, I love eggs over easy with gluten-free toast, since I’m celiac, and tons of veggies in some kind of a salad, with black coffee. I also love making my healthy spin on huevos rancheros, using greek yogurt instead of sour cream, corn tortillas and a spicy homemade salsa that’s lower sodium than the store-bought stuff, and way more tasty.
On weekdays, I’m more rushed. These days, it’s 2 percent Greek yogurt with a tablespoon of chia seeds and whatever frozen berries I have on hand, along with a green juice a few days a week and, always, coffee -- black."

"I like to start my day with some kick. This spicy veggie scramble is high in protein and filling, I simply take whatever veggies I have in the fridge (cabbage, carrots, peppers, kale, etc.) and sautée them in a little coconut oil. I scramble two eggs and a couple of egg whites in the pan until cooked and then drizzle -- or smother -- with sriracha. Paired with a cup of coffee and half of a grapefruit, and I'm fueled for my day!"
-- Jennipher Walters, CEO/Co-Founder, Fit Bottomed Girls
"This is my version of a power breakfast -- and any day that starts with avocado is going to be a good one. On the plate: Heart-healthy avocado toast (spread 1/2 avocado on toasted whole wheat bread, drizzle lemon juice over avocado and then sprinkle a touch of sea salt and red pepper flakes on top), a few scoops of cottage cheese for a protein fix and a pile of berries for an antioxidant boost. This meals keeps me full, energized and focused throughout a busy morning!"
--Abigail Cuffey, Health Director, Woman's Day
"Oatmeal with 1 percent milk, frozen mixed berries and drizzle of maple syrup when I'm feeling fancy."
-- Sarah Klein, Associate Editor, HuffPost Healthy Living
"My daily breakfast includes a glass of green juice (a blend of spinach, celery, parsley, pineapple and freshly-squeezed orange juice) and a hard-boiled egg. The green juice is not only delicious and refreshing, the benefits of drinking it include combating cholesterol, helping clean the kidneys and intestines, balancing blood sugar levels and giving a much-needed dose of Vitamin C and potassium."
-- Kimberly Castro, Managing Editor, Health & Wellness, U.S. News
"I went for a double-b'fast, because I ended up doubling down on workouts. The first one was pre-spin, the second, post-bootcamp.
6AM: Small banana and a spoonful of the BEST peanut butter ever, Peanut Butter & Co's Cinnamon Raisin Swirl.
10:30AM: Starbucks spinach egg-white feta wrap. It may not look appetizing here, but I promise, it's delicious."
-- Marissa Stephenson, Fitness Editor, SELF Magazine
"Late in the week, my fridge is starting to look a little ransacked. This morning, I ate my last farmer's market egg, boiled over red pepper hummus on crusty whole grain bread.
Not pictured: The organic gala apple slices I scarfed down before my morning run and the big coffee with soy milk I enjoyed on my subway ride into the office."
-- Meredith Melnick, Senior Editor, HuffPost Healthy Living
"Nonfat Greek yogurt, fresh berries and granola. I also have a cup of coffee most mornings. I also make a lot of breakfast smoothies. If I have a morning workout planned, I eat a heartier breakfast -- usually oatmeal with fruit, flax, maple syrup and nuts."
-- Michele Foley, Editor, POPSUGAR Fitness
"I make breakfast smoothies as often as I can. The ingredients vary depending on what I have in my fridge, but I try to always include greens, a protein source and healthy fats. This one has a big handful of organic spinach, a big scoop of natural peanut butter (I also use almond butter a lot) for protein, flaxseed meal for omega 3s (chia seeds are my other favorite) and frozen organic raspberries, strawberries and blackberries for an antioxidant boost. I use unsweetened almond milk as the base."
-- Lisa Elaine Held, Senior Staff Writer, Well+Good NYC
"I'm a creature of habit and have this melange almost every morning. In the mix: 2 percent Greek yogurt with frozen raspberries and cinnamon, a soft boiled egg and a handful of spinach."
-- Kate Bratskeir, GPS for the Soul Associate Editor, HuffPost Healthy Living
"My breakfast is a Greek yogurt, flavored with peach and passion fruit. It has 130 calories and 11 grams of protein. I only eat it frozen -- I pop it in the freezer and then pull it out in the morning."
-- Angela Haupt, Senior Editor, Health & Wellness, U.S. News
"Usually I just have cereal and today I already scarfed down my cinnamon bun -- both of which are probably not model health editor breakfasts -- but here's a photo of what else I'm eating this a.m.:
Greek yogurt with honey, an apple with peanut butter and coffee."
-- Amanda Chan, News Editor, HuffPost Healthy Living
"My breakfast smoothie: mango, banana, spinach, kale, vegan protein powder, chia seeds, almond milk, coconut oil."
-- Patricia Fitzgerald, Wellness Editor, HuffPost Healthy Living
"Snacking on the fresh fruit in the office kitchen every morning, and an occasional oatmeal for those hungrier days, can really get the creative juices flowing and start the day off right."
-- Brett Spiegel, Editor, Everyday Health
"Oatmeal (made with steel cut oats) with almond milk, cinnamon, flaxseed and some organic raisons. Sometimes I have Greek yogurt with pomegranate seeds."
- Lily Avnet, Intern, HuffPost Healthy Living
"Studies show coffee can lower one's risk for breast cancer, Type 2 diabetes, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease, improve your cognitive function -- and help you get through deadlines."
-- Jessica Firgir, Reporter and Editor, Everyday Health
"I'm an unabashed fan of Starbucks. And since they've added steel cut oatmeal with fresh blueberries (I add a bit of cinnamon, too), it's probably embarrassing how many on-the-go breakfasts I've eaten there. My mind's very much blown by how they're able to keep blueberries fresh and ready all year round, but I'm terrified of starting to ask too many questions since, you know, no reason to ruin a great thing!"
