It's time to break up with your beloved cereal. Start your day with these clean eating breakfasts that cut out processed sugar and refined grains, and you won't want to wolf down a chocolate chip muffin at 10 a.m.

1. Roasted Veggie Frittata

Now this is a good egg: A recipe that's pretty to look at and even better to eat! Peppers, zucchini, and onion are the perfect trio for a colorful frittata that will fuel you up without making you feel stuffed. Swap out cooking spray for a dash of olive oil to make sure your eggs don't stick to the pan.

2. Almond Banana Spice Smoothie

Making this smoothie with tofu adds a silky texture, on top of tons of protein, to this clean eating breakfast. Blend with almond butter, almond milk, banana, and a pinch of cinnamon. (If you'd rather skip soy, swap the tofu out for another 1/2 cup of milk).

3. Strawberry Banana and Flax Smoothie

If you haven't pieced it together yet, smoothies are a simple and quick clean eating breakfast option. Ground flaxseed adds a light, nutty flavor to this morning smoothie and will help curb cravings throughout the day. Use organic milk, soy milk, or a nut milk as your base, add flax, and tailor it to your taste and dietary preferences.

4. Blueberry and Toasted Almond Muesli

Overnight oats are so last year. Throw the ingredients in this breakfast bowl together (save the toppings) and then let it sit overnight for a thick, creamy muesli that will power your morning from first bite. Mix in hearty almonds and fresh blueberries for an added crunch that's full of antioxidants.

5. Heavenly Carrot Cake Baked Oatmeal

Wish you could have dessert at 7 a.m.? This clean eating breakfast is the next best thing. Natural sweeteners and whole grains give you the same carrot cake taste without all the additives.

6. No-Bake Granola Bars

Ditch the refined sugar and unsustainable packaging frequently found with store-bought energy bars by making your own clean eating breakfast granola bars. Don't worry, these bites have just the right amount of sweetness, thanks to the coconut palm sugar. 

7. Sweet Potato Waffles

Waffles don't always have to be sweet. This veggie-packed breakfast is chock-full of spices, almond, and coconut flour, so you can dig in without worrying about feeling lethargic and bloated an hour later. BTW, you can also use mashed bananas if you don't have sweet potatoes.

8. Pumpkin Papaya Acai Bowls

To boost your morning mood and energy levels, whip up this clean eating breakfast filled to the brim with superfoods like acai and maca. Customize yours by topping it with your favorite fruit and nuts, or swapping almond milk for homemade cashew milk. 

9. Pumpkin Banana Oat Breakfast Cookies

Some mornings, you just need a cookie (or two). Scratch that itch without derailing your diet with this ultra-nourishing recipe packed with whole grains and fruit. 

10. Mushroom and Spinach Strata

Get the whole gang on a clean-eating spree by serving up this protein-packed dish for your next group brunch. Thanks to the eggs and nutritious spinach, this clean eating breakfast will offset any buzz you get from your mimosa. 

11. Warm Honey Oats

Fair warning, you're going to need a napkin (or two) for this ooey, gooey breakfast bowl. Mix rolled oats with tart pear to help you get your fill of fiber for the day. Then add a drizzle of honey to satisfy your morning sweet tooth. 

12. Baked Eggs 

It's super easy to overeat at breakfast. Baking eggs in pre-portioned ramekins (or in this case, portobello mushrooms) can help you avoid a post-meal food coma. The best part? There's no mixing required.
