Breakfast, can you really have it all?

Isn’t this picture just lovely? You may be thinking, “Okay, I could eat like that if I chained myself to the stove.” I understand; I’m busy, too. While I love cooking and creating, I really don’t have that much time to actually do it. I run a business, I run after a toddler, I raise my hand for any PTA event they can conjure, and I occasionally do the laundry, call the plumber, pay the bills…. you get the picture. Life is busy for me and you and everyone else. But I really like to eat, and I really need to eat a good breakfast, so I rely on breakfast that I can get to the table in 10 minutes or less. Here are four fast, healthy recipes to kick off your day.

  1. The breakfast egg muffin. These are great to make on a Sunday night because they keep for most of the work week and are a portable way to pack in the protein. This recipe is great for those of you that like recipes or just to give you a general guide, but please don’t feel hemmed in. While I’m not eating eggs now, I did make these every week for at least a year. During that year, I mixed whatever diced veggies and spices I wanted with the number of eggs I wanted for that week. Have fun experimenting!

 

  1. Chi seed pudding. Easy to make and it taste like dessert without a bunch of sugar. The only difference between the bowl below and the recipe from Oh She Glows is that I used only one banana to reduce sugar. I also just take whatever nuts and seeds I have on hand and soak them overnight in a jar with water in the fridge.image
  2. Quinoa and veggie bowls: Protein, vegetables, and fat in one little bowl in as little as three minutes. imageDoes it get any better than that? I think not.  Seriously all you need is leftover quinoa, leftover vegetables or pre-washed spinach, and beans or pre-cooked sausage in a bowl. Heat it up and then top with avocado, hempseed, nuts, seeds, or anything else you can think to top it with. Just remember to soak your seeds and nuts!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. Poached eggs with sweet potato and greens. This one does actually require the stove, but it’s fast and uses up  leftover sweet potatoes or roasted squash. Just add the leftover sweet potatoes, chopped up greens (chard, kale, etc),  and spices of your choice in a skillet (I like a pinch of cayenne and salt) until the greens are soft. Break one or two eggs over the veggiesSkillet eggs and add about 1/3 cup water to the skillet. Cover until the eggs are poached to your liking. Enjoy!

 

 

 

As always, I’m hoping this post inspires you to try some of these ideas or create your own quick, delicious meals to nourishes your body.

My passion is to help you stop feeling held back by your body and start enjoying your life, your body, and your awesomeness. I know what it’s like to live without energy, to feel that your body is working against you, and to worry what your future will look like if you feel this bad now. I did not want to be a forty-year-old in the body of an eighty-year-old, but really who does? I’ve been there, and I never want to feel that way again. And I don’t want you to feel that way either. As a holistic health coach, I help you look past the fog of poor health to identify clear and concise goals and equip you with the tools to meet them. This isn’t a plan so you can quickly lose weight and this isn’t a gimmicky program to give you a quick shot of energy. This is a transformative process that will restore the lost connection between you and your body so that you can set off for a lifetime of health. Interested?
