A hearty breakfast sets the mood for your day, after all, the quote, breakfast like a king/queen holds some weight! The first meal holds such significance because the body gets to load nutrients after fasting for 8 to 10 hours.
So, it’s important you watch what you eat. Creating a balance is vital as what you eat will nourish your body. To include multiple food groups into one meal can be tricky. Not, if you have smaller portions and include at least 20 gm protein for breakfast (more if you are male or very active), fiber and fat to stay full.
And breakfast will never be a struggle to make with these healthy and delicious breakfast options we’ve put together for you.
Nutrient-dense and tasty, just as you like it!
When trying to improve your eating habits it’s best not to go too hard too fast, but rather to focus on small, sustainable changes that you can commit to doing for life. I have said it a million times – consistency and patience are more important than perfection.
Starting your day with a warm and healthy breakfast will fire up digestive power (agni) and give you a headstart for the day. Our recommendation is to pair this with coffee made for your particular body type (dosha).
What better way to gain the strength and energy to carry you through a hectic morning schedule than with a steaming bowl of freshly cooked oatmeal. Oats are harvested in the fall but are available throughout the year and can add extra nutrition to a variety of healthy dishes.
This is the perfect time of year to add some extra-energizing breakfasts to your morning routine. This raw muesli will leave you feeling satiated and satisfied all morning (it will also give you a ton of energy, unlike the dreaded doughnut breakfast).
This recipe has the goodness of pumpkin, banana, almond milk and chia seeds. A perfect mix to jump start your mornings. Make sure you use organic ingredients and avoid any substitutes for fresh pumpkin.
We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but sometimes it can be tough. Toast, fruit and oatmeal get boring and a full blown breakfast is high in calories as well as time consuming. But, with my vegan protein brownie recipe, a grab-and-go breakfast treat has never been so quick and healthy!
I recently visited General Mills’ headquarters in Minneapolis, MN. As part of my visit, I was given the opportunity to create any recipe of my choosing (using cereal as one ingredient) in the Betty Crocker test kitchens – which are immaculate and filled with every cooking tool and ingredient you can imagine. Since Cascadian Farm Organic is one of General Mills’ brands, and I decided “Purely O’s” would be a perfect ingredient in a healthy breakfast cookie recipe, since I’ve been wanting to make one for a while.
I love the energy and excitement brought forth by a new start. January 1st, is one of my favorite times to pause, reflect and start new. With the start of this new year, I am continuing with my quest to be as clean, green and natural as possible, both inside and out. Instead of beginning each day with a breakfast meal, I’ve started drinking breakfast smoothies.
Some say it’s the breakfast that’s the most important meal of the day, while there are those who believe that it’s the dinner which is the most important. Anyway, frankly speaking, all meals are important and it also depends on the kind of body, medical background and more.
Want to make a delicious smoothie? Just tried this one and it is a winner for sure! We used Manuka Honey in this recipe to make it extra sweet. Treat yourself to the taste of the tropics with this nutritious, filling breakfast smoothie.
The question of what to eat for breakfast is a tough one for many. My husband often says, with a smile, that I’ve done a horrible job finding him suitable healthy breakfast recipes for his lifestyle. So much of the food that is marketed as standard, quick breakfast food is nutrient depleted. And while I wouldn’t go so far as to say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, I would say that eating a good breakfast will do wonders for your energy level and your waistline.
