Top 10 quick and easy healthy breakfast recipes

Many breakfasts, like cereal, are high in simple carbs and sugars and not much else, meaning they won't keep hunger at bay for long. Instead, start the day right with reduced-sugar overnight oats or a wholesome bowl of porridge. Best of all, many of these healthy breakfast recipes contribute at least 2 of your 5-a-day, as well as complex carbohydrates for energy and healthy fats to keep you saturated. They also require minimal preparation, plus they can be easily adapted if you're dairy-free by using oat, soya or almond milk.
