Let’s talk about breakfast. Are you a quick bite, out-the-door kind of person, or are you all about the full-stack pancakes?
Whatever your brekkie style might be – I’ve got a ton of simple ideas for you to enjoy your first meal and start the day right!
So tell me – “What’s your breakfast style?” Are you a Breakfast Gourmet, Breakfast Blase or Breakfast Quickie?
I’m a Breakfast Gourmet. I wake up thinking about breakfast…
You and me both! Given the choice between snoozing or eating breakfast… you’re already in the kitchen heating up the skillet! Because a leisurely breakfast is a pleasure to make time for.
I’m all about getting up before the kids – putting on a hilarious podcast (have you listened to Mortified?) and very often, cooking up these garlicky sauteed broccoli eggs. It’s simple but amazing. Why not give it a try too!
Garlicky Broccoli + Eggs Recipe
¼ head of broccoli / coconut oil / salt / garlic powder / onion powder / chili powder / egg
- Prep the broccoli by peeling the top layer of the stem with a vegetable peeler
- Cut the broccoli vertically in thin strips from the florets down to the stem, the crumbly pieces are the best part!
- heat up coconut oil in the pan and toss in the broccoli
- season with plenty of garlic, onion, salt and a dash of chili powder
- when the broccoli is browned and getting soft crack an egg right in
- cover the pan for the egg to cook
I’m a Breakfast Blasé. I’m just not hungry in the mornings…
That’s ok! You don’t need to eat right away. How about starting the morning with a drink to kickstart your system?
Sometimes our body is still waking up and it just needs a little boost in the mornings…
A pot of Inspiration Tea would do the trick.
If you’re a coffee drinker, my Cold Brew recipe is a must-try!!
Something this simple can give you renewed energy and more motivation for the day ahead.
Remember, even if you don’t eat right away, you can still prepare yourself a grab-and-go breakfast for when you’re hungry in an hour or two. Try this Sunshine Bowl. It packs well, so you can you take it to go.
Or you can blend up a smoothie and keep it in the fridge for later.
My nutritionist recommends adding a tablespoon of nut-butter or avocado to your smoothies for energy-giving protein. Check out the Green Smoothie Upgrade recipe.
I’m a Breakfast Quickie. I can do toast, or a bowl of cereal…
I get it! Some mornings, I’m not in the mood to cook, but a good breakfast doesn’t mean you need to.
My favorite nutritionist gave me a great tip that I want to share with you – it’s changed the way I think about breakfast…
Last night’s soup, stew, brown rice and roast chicken…. Yes! That would make a far better breakfast for you than a crummy piece of toast – and all you need to do is warm it up.
If you’re part of the breakfast club, I want to know – what are you cooking up in the mornings? What’s your breakfast ritual?
