3 Healthy Breakfast in Bed Recipes (perfect for Mother’s Day)

Healthy Breakfast in Bed Recipes

It’s that time of year again. The time when kids all around the world begin crafting their Mother’s Day gifts consisting of construction paper and glitter—the gift that keeps on giving. These are truly gifts only a mother could love. And we do! But, you know what else we love: a delicious and healthy breakfast in bed.

Something else we love is being able to enjoy a cup of coffee—while it is still hot. This is an often-overlooked simple pleasure in life, but one I am quite certain mothers everywhere can appreciate. I honestly believe iced coffee was created by a sleep-deprived mother who decided to forego warming her stale cup of coffee again and just drink it cold.

While dining at a trendy breakfast spot after church last weekend, I couldn’t help but notice there were some new items that had made their way to the menu. The first one being avocado toast. I love avocados. I love toast. Seems like a good combination, but the price tag that accompanied this dish left a bad taste in my mouth: $12.95 for some avocado smashed and spread onto a piece of toast? This seems like highway robbery and something I could easily make at home for a fraction of this cost. So, I set out to make my own version, but with a little extra protein to balance out the meal. With just a little help from Dad, this could easily be a great & healthy breakfast in bed idea for the kids to help with and serve to Mom. With a piping hot cup of coffee. 😉

3 Delicious & Healthy Breakfast in Bed Recipes

Healthy Breakfast in Bed Recipes

1. Sunny-Side Up Avocado Toast


  • 2 eggs
  • 2 slices of Ezekiel bread
  • ½ avocado


  1. Brown/toast 2 slices of Ezekiel bread.
  2. Mash ½ avocado.
  3. Cook 2 eggs, sunny side up (or you could poach them if you prefer).
  4. Layer your ingredients—toast, mashed avocado, cooked egg.
  5. Voila. Breakfast is served.

Chef note: I apologize in advance since it seems like such a waste to have a recipe with half an avocado, since we all know it will turn brown before you can even get the other half into a storage container/bag, so why not whip up some guacamole with the other half for later. This is super simple and only requires some lime juice and maybe a few pieces of chopped tomato and onion.

2. Quinoa Fruit Salad

Quinoa Fruit Salad

Something else on the menu that caught my eye was a seasonal fruit bowl. Now why is this considered out of the ordinary, you may be asking yourself? It isn’t, but it was also combined with quinoa. I really enjoyed this combination and decided to change out the traditional oranges and strawberries with a variety of colorful berries and add a few things to it to kick it up a notch. This is a heartier way to enjoy a side of fruit, as the quinoa really makes it more of a real healthy breakfast in bed meal.


  • 1 cup quinoa, cooked
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1 cup blackberries
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 mango, diced
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp fresh basil, chopped


  1. Cook quinoa per directions.
  2. Rinse and prepare seasonal fruits.
  3. In a small bowl, combine lime juice and honey.
  4. Mix quinoa with fruit in a larger bowl, and drizzle with lime juice/honey mixture.
  5. Garnish with basil.

Chef notes: Using fresh mint would also work as a garnish with this and would create a fresh and flavorful combination.

Momosa Recipe


  • 4 oz champagne or sparkling wine
  • 2 oz fresh-squeezed orange juice


  1. Combine and enjoy!

Chef notes: You may also substitute the orange juice for grapefruit juice, as this will also pack similar health benefits.

Chef notes: For a non-alcoholic version, you could use sparkling cider in lieu of champagne. Or if you don’t have champagne on hand, white wine also works!
