Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, right?  For many of us, it definitely can be.  Eating a healthy breakfast can improve focus, boost metabolism, and keep our blood sugar levels in check.

Skipping breakfast can sap your energy, lead to mood swings, brain fog, and overeating later in the day.  To activate your body early, choose a breakfast full of fiber and protein.

Planning ahead can make eating a healthy breakfast much easier. Each recipe provides enough breakfast for three days and are easy to grab as an alternative to sugary cereals and bars.

Savory

Simple Baked Eggs

  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup chopped spinach
  • 1/2 cup mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup diced onion
  • 1/2 cup diced bell pepper
  • any other chopped veggies you like!
  • seasonings: sea salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, etc.

Coat muffin tin with cooking spray. Crack and wisk one egg at a time in a small bowl. Add one egg to each of the 6 muffin cups. Portion the veggies and seasonings across the six eggs. Mix ingredients carefully in cups. Bake in 400 degree oven for 20-25 minutes. Egg bakes are done when tops become springy. Store in air tight container in refrigerator. Grab two for breakfast. The protein in the eggs and fiber in the veggies are a great combination.

Sweet

Overnight Oats

  • 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 cups milk of choice (I prefer unsweetened almond milk)
  • 1 T chia seeds
  • 3 T chopped walnuts
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen berries

Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Portion ingredients into three air tight containers. Refrigerate overnight. Breakfast is ready. No cooking required. The nuts and seeds offer protein, healthy fats, and the oats and fruit provide fiber to sustain blood sugar levels to provide energy.
