I'm a big breakfast guy (anyone follow Kaitlyn Bristowe on snapchat haha). But really, breakfast food is my absolute favourite food! It is what gets me up out of bed in the morning. Well, that and Piper, I guess.
I usually teach spin in the morning, so I'll have 2 rice cakes with peanut butter before class. I plan out what I'm going to eat for breakfast as I'm teaching (I told you, big breakfast guy over here), and get straight to business when I get home.
I always make sure to have good protein and fat with my breakfast, otherwise I'm 100x hungrier the rest of the day (especially at night!!), and I struggle feeling satisfied. Below are 10 of my favourite options (in no particular order) that I constantly cycle through. If you're struggling for ideas, I really hope this helps!!
I mentioned how I just bought a cast iron skillet HERE (still supes pumped about it, thanks for asking), and frittatas have been popping out like crazy ever since! I saute tons of veggies on the stove first, then mix eggs and egg whites (to make things fluffier) together, and then add it into the skillet. I cook everything on medium heat for a couple of minutes, and then pop it into the oven (at 350) until it's cooked all the way through.
#2 Egg Sandwich
Cook eggs however you like and layer on sprouted english muffin on top of mashed avocado. Add in tomatoes, spinach, cheese, etc.
#3 Breakfast Burrito
Again, saute tons of veggies on the stove, mix together eggs, and then add to the vegetables. Once everything is cooked through, add to a wrap and viola!
#4 Eggs & Avocado
Toast 2 slices of sprouted bread. Mash 1/2 avocado onto bread. Top with 2 poached eggs.
#5 Acai Bowl
Recipe posted HERE.
Add 1/2 frozen banana, 3 handfuls of spinach, handful of ice, 1 cup almond milk, 1/2 cup frozen berries, and 1 scoop IdealRaw chocolate peanut butter protein (10% off with SWOLE). Blend and enjoy!
#8 Overnight Oats
#9 Protein Pancakes
#10 Overnight Pancakes
Cook 1 serving of Kodiak Pancakes according to package. Place into a container and pour almond milk over the top (about 1/4 - 1/3 cup), sprinkle with chia seeds, and cacao nibs. Store in the fridge overnight. In the morning, top with berries and natural peanut butter. This is one of my FAVOURITE breakfasts. The pancake soaks up the milk overnight and it gets this really yummy cake-like texture.
