I feel like mornings are generally pretty crazy for everyone, right? Either you're rushing off to school or work, or you're at home taking care of little ones who need 100 different things all at once. Breakfast food is my absolute favourite kind of food, and going out to breakfast is one of my favourite things to do (I live an exciting life haha), so there's no way I'll skip it! BUT it's so common for people to get busy with the day, and forget to eat first thing, so I want to share some super quick, and easy breakfast options!
EGGS & AVOCADO TOAST
This combination is the BEST (besides peanut butter and chocolate, obviously)! I use Chino Valley Ranchers organic eggs because they're hens live on free-range farms and are fed organic ingredients, and I typically scramble or poach them, and put them on top of the avocado. If you're short on time, boil a bunch of Chino Valley Ranchers eggs for the week, and in the morning just toast some bread, mash 1/2 avocado on top, and then mash a boiled egg over that. SO easy, and it's packed with healthy fats which stabilizes blood sugar levels, hormones, and curbs cravings. Easy.
This one is so cliche, but it's for a reason. Overnight oats can be put together quickly, there are tons of different combinations, and they're filling! My go-to recipe is 1/2 cup oats, 1 cup almond milk, 1 tbsp ground flaxseed, and 1 scoop IdealRaw protein powder (use SWOLE for 10% off). I mix it all together, and store it overnight, and then throw on berries, peanut butter, and seeds (like hemp seeds or chia seeds) in the morning, and I'm all set! **I eat mine in a bowl, because I'm at home, but when I'm on the run, I store the oats in mason jars take those with me. Easy.
I like preparing individual smoothies ahead of time by storing all the frozen ingredients in separate bags. That way, in the morning, I can just grab a bag, dump it in the freezer, add some liquid and ice, and call it good! My favourite smoothie recipe is 3 handfuls of spinach, 1/2 cup frozen zucchini (you can't taste it at all - promise!), 1/2 frozen banana, 1/2 cup frozen berries, 1 scoop IdealRaw protein powder (use SWOLE for 10% off any of their products!), a handful of ice, and some water. Easy.
Yogurt bowls are where it's at! You get to add whatever toppings your feeling, like oatmeal bowls, but you don't have to prepare anything ahead of time. I like using Siggis yogurt, or just plain greek yogurt as the base, and then topping it with natural peanut butter, fruit, seeds, and sometimes a bar of some sort, if I'm feeling wild.
