Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and I always make sure to fit it in! Whether it’s early or even mid-morning, it’s a meal I do not want to miss. I have always eaten mostly healthy but have changed a few of my eating habits since last December when I became a Beachbody Coach. So, I wanted to share with you some of my breakfast favorites. All of the recipes are easy to prepare and even easier to eat!! I have gotten pretty creative with my meals, and I will say: they are super yummy and healthy to boot!
1. Let’s start with eggs. We all know they pretty great: there’s many ways to cook eggs, they are packed with protein, and are low in sodium. (If you’re worried about cholesterol, just go for the egg whites!) Here are some of my favorite recipes!
Scrambled, but not just scrambled! (I take 3-4 eggs generally that way I have leftovers.) Chop up one tomato, add a can of green chilis, a half can of drained black beans, and a tablespoon of mozzarella cheese. I usually cook the eggs until almost done and then add the rest of the ingredients. I also sometimes mix in mushrooms or spinach too. So many varieties!
Hard-boiled eggs and avocado. I love these two mixed together–amazing! They are great on a piece of toast to make an egg-vocado sandwich.
2. Greek Yogurt with Fruit and Granola. I prefer to use Pumpkin Flax Granola because it’s all natural and has pumpkin seeds in it. I am also a big fan of the Coconut Chia Granola. Both can be found at Aldi. Choose any fruit you love and add it with the yogurt and granola. I love adding pears or blueberries!
3. Pancakes, but not your typical pancakes. Mix the ingredients seen in the picture–one banana, two eggs, and cinnamon to taste–and cook like a traditional pancake. Cook for just a few minutes on each side. Add almond butter or peanut butter on top!
4. Steel Cut Oats with Blueberries. I love this recipe for cooler mornings or when I want something warm. I love oatmeal because it’s filling and you can add whatever fruit you want. I prefer fresh fruit but also love to mix in a few dried cranberries. And of course I added just a sprinkle of granola for a crunch! Another idea is to add peanut butter to the oatmeal and/or a banana.
