A fruit smoothie. Just be careful not to add too much sugar, to keep it healthy. Hide some greens in there too.
Oatmeal with fruit & cacao.
I love mixed berries & keep a huge bag in the freezer. Make a serving of oatmeal, stir in 1 tbsp organic cacao powder & 1 tsp maple syrup or honey. Top with about a 1/2 cup of thawed berries & a few tsp of cacao nibs. Sometimes I'll add chia, hemp seeds, or toasted coconut flakes.
1- mash one banana in a bowl
2- add 1/4 cup milk and 1 egg to your banana (add 1/2 tsp vanilla extract too)
3- whisk these ingredients until smooth
4- add 1/2 cup of flour ( I usually remove 2 tblsp of flour from the 1/2 cup) and 1 tsp of baking powder
5- mix well
6- butter a pan and use a 1/4 measuring cup to put in the batter
7- I usually wait 30 seconds between each side but it all depends on your heater!
8- Enjoy ❤️
1. 1egg, 1/2 cup of milk, 3 spoons of cinnamon, toast, butter
2. Mix the milk, eggs and cinnamon in a bowl and soak the toast in the mixture.
3. Put some butter in the pan and spread it, throw the toast in and wait till it's ready then you can put any toppings you want.
Super healthy and sweet!
What I have for breakfast is 11% Greek yogurt (fat, protein), 1 cup blueberries (sweet), a handful of walnuts (fat, protein) and a handful of granola (sweet and some fat, protein). You can sub in any fruit for the blueberries, bananas are good and sweet. I find this is a perfect balance of tastes and textures. You can also try making pancakes (yes with chocolate chips). Spread peanut butter over a cooled pancake and pop an egg in the middle, sandwich another pancake spread with pb on top.
Eventually you’ll get bored but just come back to the rule of thumb: eat sweet with protein…and add in some fat cuz it’s good too. I’m 5’6” and I weigh 112 lbs…this is what I eat. I barely exercise. I intermittently fast (16:8)…just so you have an idea of who’s writing this.
Ideally…you should limit the amount of sugar in the morning. Fruit also has sugar, thought it is healthier than some of the other forms of sugar.
Sugar gives you highs and lows with energy, and it's also very taxing on your insulin response.
Stevia is a good sugar substitute. It comes from a plant. Agave nectar is also a good sugar substitute…and can also be a syrup substitute.
- Why is it wrong to skip breakfast? I know people who skip breakfast and actually feel better after skipping breakfast.
- I can eat in the morning, but I’m having a hard time eating before going to work because no matter what time I wake up I feel like I’m always running late. I want to eat before I get to work because I want to eat breakfast within an hour of waking up to start my day off right. How do you do it?
- Is eating breakfast the first or last part of your morning routine?
- How do I start remembering things better and feel comfortable with it?
- What are some yummy add-ins that you like to put in your overnight oats?
- Is caffeine okay, or not recommended?
- What do you have for breakfast as a healthy option?
- I have to get two kids (2 and 3) ready every morning and don’t ever feel like I have time to cook eggs for breakfast. What are some very healthy going-out-the-door recipes that take minimal prep?
- Is it good to run before or after breakfast?
- Any small meals that are filling? I’m not very hungry in the morning and don’t know what to eat.
