They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, right? Not only is it the most important meal, it is my favorite meal to have. Having a good, hearty breakfast gives me the energy I need to get through my day. When I plan on having a good breakfast, it makes my mornings just a little more enjoyable. Below are some of the things that I have been loving to eat for my favorite meal of the day. Enjoy!
Scrambled eggs with spinach and a side of Ezekial bread
- This breakfast is very easy and fast. I take 3 eggs whisk them in a bowl and put them in a frying pan. I add a tiny bit of spinach and scramble that all together. On the side, I love having Ezekial bread with some sugar-free raspberry preserves. Ezekial bread is a bread made from whole grains that have been allowed to sprout.
“Jazzed” up oatmeal
- To me, oatmeal is just too plain for me to eat it by itself, and I know I am not alone on that thought. I love “jazzing” up my oatmeal to make it taste good, but still keeping it healthy. All I do is put 1 cup of plain rolled oats in a bowl with about 1/4 cup of water. I microwave that for 2 minutes. I like my oatmeal a bit more “soupy” so I sometimes add a bit more water to mine when it comes out of the microwave. I add about 1 tbsp maple syrup, 1 tbsp peanut butter, granola, and bananas. That is usually what I put in my oatmeal. Sometimes I add some dark chocolate chips as well as some fresh fruit and some almonds!
- This is exactly what it sounds like, toast with avocado on it! I take 2 pieces of Ezekiel bread and toast them. Once they’re toasted I spread a tiny bit of butter on them. I take an avocado and cut it in half, I take one of the halves and spread it out between the 2 slices. I season with some pink Himalayan salt and pepper. I usually don’t put anything else on the toast, but sometimes I will fry 2 eggs and put those on top of the toast. The other half of the avocado I put in the fridge for another day.
Avocado and egg burrito.
- This is something I like to make when I have a little more time on my hands. It doesn’t take that long but it takes a little more work than some of the breakfast listed above. I take some mushrooms, green peppers, and onions and fry those in a pan. I also scramble 2 eggs while the veggies are cooking. Once the veggies and eggs are finished, I take one whole grain tortilla and put the veggies, eggs and some avocado in the tortilla. I fold the tortilla in half and put it in our panini press. It will stay in the panini press for about 5 minutes or until there are nice grill marks on the tortilla. This is a great breakfast for on the go because you can wrap it up in tinfoil and eat in on the way to school, work or once you get to your destination.
