Quick & Healthy Breakfast Options


Let's cut right to it. When you have early mornings, you want your breakfast to be fast yet filling! All these breakfast options take about 10 - 15 minutes max. We’ll be focusing on food and nutrition all month long so strap in, get your reading glasses ready, or watch our Instagram/YouTube if you’re a more visual person.


Protein Shakes

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup frozen fruit/veggies or ice (banana, berries, spinach, celery, etc.)

  • 1 cup of fruit, not frozen

  • 2–4 servings protein (protein powder, nut butter, seeds, etc.)

  • 1/3 cup – 1 cup of liquid (almond milk, water, apple juice, etc)

  • optional: sweetener (honey, agave)

INSTRUCTIONS

1. First, place your frozen fruit or ice on the bottom of your blender

2. Next, add in your protein sources. You can use protein powder, chia/flaxseed, nut butter, etc. Try using more than one!

3. Add in 1/3 cup of liquid to start and an optional sweetener, if desired.

4. Place the softest fruit closest to the blade.

5. Put the lid on your blender and blend until smooth. If your protein shake isn’t blending easily, add a little more liquid and continue blending.

6. Serve immediately.


Tips: I add in the veggies to make the shake more balanced. Spinach's flavor is a little sweeter and doesn’t make it too strong.


ACAI BOWLS



If you follow me, you know how often I make these!


INGREDIENTS

Add to a high powered blender:

  • 1 packet frozen acai berry packet

  • 1/2 cup apple juice with no added sugar

  • 1 banana

  • 1/2 cup frozen strawberries

  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries


Top your bowl: Add your favorite toppings and add to your desired quantity. These topping suggestions are for one acai bowl

  • 1 tablespoon honey (if you don't add this on top, I recommend adding it to the mixture beforehand)

  • store-bought or homemade granola

  • Fresh fruit sliced thinly or chopped

  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds

  • 1-2 tablespoons coconut

Tips: Feel free to be adventurous with the toppings. Nuts work too!

Using a high-power blender is necessary to help blend the frozen ingredients.


INSTRUCTIONS

1. Add the acai berry packet, apple juice, banana, strawberries, and blueberries to a high-powered blender. Blend until smooth. Pour into a large bowl.

2. Top the bowl with as many of your favorites like granola, fresh fruit, chia seeds, and coconut! I recommend drizzling on about a tablespoon of honey over everything. Enjoy immediately.


OATMEAL

There are a ton of ways to make oatmeal. I'm going to share my personal favorite!


INGREDIENTS

  • ½ cup rolled old fashioned oats

  • ½ cup milk of choice (I use oat milk)

  • ½ cup water

  • Pinch of salt

Maple Brown Sugar Toppings

  • 1 teaspoon packed brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup

  • 2 tablespoons pecans chopped

  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Instructions

1. In a small saucepan, bring the water and milk to a boil.

2. Reduce the heat to low and pour in the oats. Cook, stirring occasionally until the oats are soft and have absorbed most of the liquid, about 5 minutes.

3. Remove from the heat, cover, and let stand for 2-3 minutes.

4. Add your toppings


There you have it! Fast, easy, and YUMMY. These options work for most diets but you can always modify and use these recipes as guidelines.
