5 Healthy Breakfasts

Breakfast. The most important meal of the day. And yet the most often neglected and skipped meal for busy moms. No matter how busy I am, I always make sure to feed my family a good breakfast. I know it will give us the energy and fuel we need for a great day. So, I share with you some of the breakfasts that I've had in the last week.

Egg Burrito

I kid you not, I make this pretty much every single day for breakfast for Jacob. I can't complain though as it is a well balanced meal. Simply scramble some eggs and fill in with your favorite veggies, salsa and a few slices of avocado. I keep the cheese out of mine (unless it's a treat) and have been sticking to gluten free or sprouted grain tortillas.

Egg Scramble

I am not shy about eating eggs nearly every day. Great source of protein! I try to roast a ton of different veggies at the beginning of the week and then use them for everything from this dish to pasta. I simply stir fry some cut veggies and / or spinach and then add the egg. I put this one on top of a slice of gluten free toast.

Coconut Yogurt Bowl

I have been trying to stay away from dairy as I believe it is a food sensitivity for me. But I missed my morning yogurt. So, I was so happy to find yogurt made from coconut milk! Delicious! I top it with a variety of berries, some low sugar granola and chia seeds!

Egg Panini

I don't make this one too often as I don't need two slices of bread at breakfast. But the kids love it and it is quite tasty. This gluten free bread is actually quite small. Make your egg scramble, add a slice of tomato and turkey and then place between two slices of bread. Put on a panini grill or just press on your nonstick pan with a little bit of oil. Add a piece of fruit to complete your meal!

Green Smoothie

Green smoothies are what I make when I am in a rush. They aren't always green in color but they are always loaded with a ton of greens such as kale and spinach. My base is usually water but sometimes I'll do coconut water or almond milk. If I want something chocolately (that should so be a word), I add a scoop of chocolate protein powder and then add a scoop of peanut or almond butter, a banana and a couple of handfuls of spinach and/or kale. If I want a fruity one, I'll do berry or vanilla protein powder, a variety of berries. Yes, you still throw in the greens! If you have a powerful blender like a Vitamix or a Blendtech, you can thrown in carrots and tomato. Just add more fruit if you don't like the flavor.

Your breakfasts don't have to be fancy and can be the same every day if they are well balanced. Do your best to get your fruits and veggies in to your breakfast and just adjust serving size if you are trying to lose weight. Keep it simple and keep it fun! I can make any of these breakfasts in 10-minutes flat and so can you! What are your favorite healthy breakfasts?
