Create A Well-Rounded, Healthy Breakfast
Breakfast is such an important part of a your morning ritual – it sets the mood for the rest of your day! So take a little time to plan out well-rounded breakfasts packed with tasty, nutritious ingredients (aka. meals that will get you excited to wake up in the morning). Here’s a few things to keep in mind while planning your list of breakfast ideas:
Create protein-packed meals to fuel you for the day. While eggs are the most common protein option, don’t forget about the power of chia seeds, hemp seeds, oatmeal, nuts, and nut butters.
Sneak in greens where you can – it’s easy! I always say, the more greens the better! Meals such as scrambles, hashes, egg muffins, or casseroles make it easy to add leafy greens and *all* the veggies.
Mix up sweet and savory options throughout the week. For those mornings when you don’t want something savory, it is possible to have better-for-you sweet options that don’t come in a cereal box. Make a batch of chia pudding, creamy overnight oats, or yogurt to enjoy throughout the week!
Eggs For Breakfast, But Better
A fried or poached egg is truly a blank canvas. Dress it up with colorful proteins and veggies such as spiralized sweet potato or sautéed greens.
Garlic Sautéed Spinach: This is not as common, but I personally love sautéed spinach with a side of fried eggs and bacon for extra easy greens!
Breakfast Ideas with Nuts, Oats & Chia Seeds
Need a break from eggs? Pantry staples like oats and chia seeds make for some of the easiest healthy breakfast ideas. And this is where you can have extra fun with sweet and savory flavors and toppings!
Easy Oatmeal Recipe: Nothing’s more cozy than a bowl of creamy, fluffy oatmeal. It’s easy, healthy, and the toppings are endless.
Chia Seed Pudding: These little seeds are packed with antioxidants and nutrients that gel up beautifully into a deliciously creamy pudding.
Peanut Butter And Jelly Chia Pudding: One way to dress up chia pudding is layering almond butter, blueberry puree, blackberries, and crushed pistachios for added crunch. My personal fave!
Skip the long lines and enjoy brunch with friends and family right at home! These hashes and frittatas will have your guests swooning. And the best part? They’re easy to make and look extra fancy on the table.
Shakshuka For Breakfast? Yes Please!
Nothing beats a hot pan of shakshuka for breakfast. But if you can’t eat tomatoes, I’ve got some veggie-heavy options to add to your list of breakfast ideas. Besides, variety is fun!
Shakshuka: This simple combo of simmering tomatoes, onions, garlic, spices and poached eggs is always a win. Especially since it only takes 30 minutes to make.
Green Shakshuka: For the ultimate greens spin, fill your shakshuka base with shaved Brussels sprouts, spinach, zucchini, and spices.
Orange Shakshuka: Once fall hits, turn roasted butternut squash into the most delicious and vibrant shakshuka!
Feel-Good Breakfast Pancakes & Waffles
While these might be considered weekend brunch favorites, you can also freeze them to easily reheat on weekday mornings! Just pop them into a toaster or microwave, drizzle a little syrup or jam, and breakfast is done.
Paleo Pancakes: My signature paleo pancakes are unbelievably pillowy, and will surely put a smile on your face.
Paleo Apple Cinnamon Pancakes: Come Fall, satisfy your cinnamon apple cravings with these cinnamon-y pancakes doused with a cozy maple apple topping.
Superseed Buckwheat Waffles: Amp up your waffles with superfoods such as sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds and layers of fresh fruit on top.
Paleo Chocolate Waffles: For a treat-yourself kind of morning, make a batch of these rich and decadent waffles drizzled with homemade chocolate syrup. You deserve it!
Paleo Pumpkin Pancakes: When pumpkin season hits, these pumpkin pancakes drizzled with maple ginger syrup will make the best of your canned pumpkin puree.
For those days where you’re craving warm, fluffy bread, these recipes are incredibly easy to make. And whether you’re a single person or four person household, whip up a second batch anyways. It’ll help cover a few days worth of breakfast.
Paleo Blueberry Muffins: These moist and fluffy muffins dotted with fresh blueberries are a sweet and juicy way to start your morning.
Paleo Zucchini Bread: With how good and moist this bread is, you won’t even know there’s sneaky zucchini in there.
