Breakfast Ideas

Untitled design (2)Breakfast ideas are something that I’m asked for often.  It seems to be one of the most challenging meals to keep healthy but fix in a hurry!

Three of our favorite healthy breakfast recipes are included below.

 

Overnight Oats

While this recipe takes a little bit of forethought the night before, it only takes about 1 minute to mix up and makes a tasty and filling breakfast.

Ingredients for one serving:

1/2 cup old fashioned oats

1/2 milk or unsweetened almond milk

Optional add-ins – amounts are only suggestions and can be altered to fit your tastes.

a handful of berries

freeze-dried fruit

dried cranberries, blueberries or raisins

1/8 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp chia seeds

1 Tbsp of powered peanut butter

2 tsp. cocoa powder

Raw local honey, to taste

Maple syrup, to taste

Directions:

The night before, mix 1/2 cup of oats and 1/2 cup of milk  in a small mason jar or container with a lid.  Place in the refrigerator overnight.

In the morning, add any of the optional add-ins and heat in the microwave or enjoy cold.

ENJOY!

 

Egg Muffin Cups

A great recipe for a quick healthy breakfast full of protein are Egg Muffin Cups.  I make these in advance and store them in the freezer.  I pop them into the microwave to heat and have a delicious breakfast.

Ingredients:

12 large eggs

sea salt and pepper to taste

Optional fillings – use any combination

chopped mushrooms

chopped bell peppers

sliced green onions

chopped broccoli

shredded carrots

spinach leaves

cooked breakfast meat – bacon, sausage, ham

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray.
  3. Fill muffin cups with desired vegetables from above.
  4. Whisk eggs, salt and pepper in a large bowl.
  5. Pour the egg mixture over the vegetables, filling slightly less than the cup will hold.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes or until egg is cooked through.
  7. Enjoy!
