HEALTHY BREAKFAST RECIPES THAT TASTE GOOD AND KEEP YOU FULL
You guys. I love food. Like I really love food. But I don't love cooking. Or even like cooking if we're being honest 😂I'm always on the hunt for low prep breakfast ideas that are going to taste good, fuel my body well, and keep me full until lunch time. I've really been loving two breakfast "recipes" (we are using the term recipe loosely here) and just had to share them with y'all. So if you're a busy lady (or man) and don't feel like standing in the kitchen for an hour in the morning, but you still want to give your body all the good things in the AM, then here you go!
RECIPE ONE. Loaded Toast
This one takes a little more effort so I figured I'd share it first. You have to prep the boiled eggs ahead of time. I usually boil a dozen eggs and save them in the fridge for my husband and I to grab during the week. This is the way that I boil eggs and so far - foolproof!
I use Dave's Killer Bread (the thin sliced one that comes in the green package - only 60 calories per slice).
I toast the bread then add the following toppings:
On the first slice (left): 1/4 of a mashed avocado, a boiled egg, pink Himalayan sea salt, black pepper, and crushed red pepper
On the second slice (right): 1/4 cup plain greek yogurt mixed with a touch of raw honey, cinnamon, a sprinkle of chia seeds, a few banana slices, and a drizzle of nut butter (my fave is this one from Trader Joe's)
THAT'S IT! SO EASY! SO DELICIOUS! CAN'T LOSE!
RECIPE TWO. Power Blueberry Smoothie
On the days that I have to be out of the house SUPER early for clinicals, I'll usually opt for a smoothie. And my secret? I make them the night before and leave them in the fridge overnight.
To make my smoothies, I use a Vitamix. They are expensive but totally worth it. I use ours every single day and it blends smoothies so....smoothly? Idk, just trust me!
Here's what I put in this one:
2 cups of unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 scoop of a plant-based vanilla protein powder (still on the hunt for my fave)
1/4 cup of frozen bloobs (that's blueberries for those of you who are anti-shorten words)
A sprinkle of maca powder (literally the tiniest amount bc this stuff is no joke)
1 tablespoon of chia seeds
1 tablespoon nut butter OR coconut oil (they're both good but only choose 1)
Top with a sprinkle of raw, unsweetened coconut flakes
As a retired (lol) personal trainer, fueling my body with whole, healthy foods is super important to me. These recipes keep me feeling full and satisfied until lunch time. I am a big fan of incorporating healthy fats into my breakfasts to help with this. You can read about how I feel about eating a good amount of fats (NOT KETO, PPL) in this post. You also need to buy this book because there are approximately 1 million mouth watering smoothie recipes inside (k, not a million but they really are the best smoothie recipes I've ever tried).
And that's it! I hope you L-O-V-E these quick, delish breakfast recipes as much as I do! And if you have any for me to try, leave a comment down below!
