From model/chef Chrissy Teigen to actress-turned–holistic health guru Jessica Alba, the stars we love have plenty of ideas to offer when it comes to the most important meal of the day. We've rounded up a hearty lineup of breakfast inspiration to take away from these starlets, so get ready to upgrade your morning routine.

Scroll on to see what our favorite celebrities chow down on in the mornings to kick-start their day.


Chrissy Teigen

Enthusiastic cook and Cravings author Chrissy Teigen has no shortage of breakfast recipes in her arsenal, yet she admits that she and husband John Legend usually stick to the same thing. "We are like robots," the model tells Bon Appétit of her and Legend's breakfast go-to, "I always do two eggs over easy with avocado and turkey bacon—we enjoy the taste of it more than pork. I carve it all up into a bowl so it's like a slop, and I load it with salt and pepper and Cholula."


Gwyneth Paltrow

The bestselling author of cookbooks It's All Good and It's All Easy is all about super-healthy clean eating. When she had Dr. Frank Lipman, board-certified internal medicine specialist and author of Total Renewal: 7 Key Steps to Resilience, Vitality & Long-Term Health, share breakfast options on her lifestyle blog GOOP, he recommended smoked wild salmon, sardines, or sliced avocado topped onto gluten free bread as a "delicious way to start the day, and a great dose of superfoods all in one go."


Kate Hudson

"I wake up and I want coffee and even a green juice, but everybody says you've got to eat something, even if it's just a little," the actress and Fabletics co-founder tells Self. When she does make time for breakfast, Hudson says she loves eggs. "I do a 5-minute soft-boiled egg," she told Glamour, "It's my favorite thing on the planet."


Lea Michele

Lea Michele, Scream Queens star and Glee alum, is dedicated to her health and fitness, which includes eating nutritious, natural meals. One of her morning go-tos is a tofu scramble. "I'll add in salsa and a piece of avocado," she told Women's Health UK.


Lena Dunham

Like Lena Dunham, the writer and star of Girls, says that even though she's "no longer an avowed vegan," she still considers a vegan brunch at Real Food Daily in Los Angeles "to be the height of adult feminine power and luxury."


Julianne Hough

While the triple threat tells Bon Appétit she does green drinks and juices in the morning—"things with a lot of kale, spinach, cucumber, celery, cayenne, lemon, and ginger"—she admits "this breakfast splurge" shown here makes her so happy she "can hardly stand it." We agree it's hard to argue with the Lucky Charm and chia seed pudding combo.


The Kardashians

Kim Kardashian West writes in her book, Selfish, that she'll usually opt for scrambled eggs, oatmeal, or a protein shake with fruit in the morning. Little sister Khloé Kardashian tells People that her morning staple is Kashi GoLean cereal and a cup of coffee.


Reese Witherspoon

America's Sweetheart makes our heart melt with the adorable breakfasts (think waffles and bananas in the shape of sea turtles, and fruit and cinnamon buns in the shape of faces) she concocts for her toddler Tennessee.


Sofia Vergara

With long days on set shooting Modern Family, the actress fuels up on plenty of energy in the morning. "When I'm on set, I usually have egg white omelets with wheat toast and avocado with vegetables," she tells InStyle. "When I'm at home, I usually do yogurts with fruit and granola or oatmeal."


Jessica Alba

The busy actress and Honest Company co-founder tells Shape, "I started making this shake using vegan protein powder, matcha green tea powder, a banana, coconut water, and ice. I drink it before a workout and it doesn't make me feel too full."
