5 Breakfast Ideas to fill & Fuel you!

Breakfast is one of my favorite meals of the day, maybe because I get to pair it with some coffee or matcha but also because this food is how I kick off my day!


I'm a big believer in breakfast because it helps give your body the energy to kick start the day. For some people, fasting is a better option. If fasting works for your body, then that's great! But if you are finding yourself getting the shakes at 10am because all you have had is coffee, you feel foggy-headed, or have low energy you might want to try incorporating some more rounded breakfast ideas into the start of your day.


Having a protein-packed breakfast is a great way to fuel your body up for the day ahead, while also incorporating some dietary fasts and fiber too! Not to mention it supports healthy blood sugar balance & regulating hormones. Here are some of my go-to ideas!

 

Decked-Out Toast!


You can get all the fixings for your toast and make it however you want right in your own kitchen. My favorite avocado toast pairing recently has been some Food for Life Ezekiel Bread toasted, add mashed avocado, sprinkle with some Everything Bagel seasoning (I got a huge one from Costco!!), Microgreens, with 2 over-medium eggs!


Having bread for breakfast is okay, carbs are our main source of energy, but it is important to pay attention to what kind. I love Food for Life because it is flourless & sprouted grain which still gives you the energy but without the spike in your blood sugar.


Eggs provide a great source of protein, A & B vitamins, and support healthy cholesterol to support reduced insulin resistance.


Adding in the microgreens also just adds a ton of nutrients as microgreens are packed with nourishment. more so than there are more full versions (Broccoli microgreens vs regular broccoli).

 

Protein Smoothie

This is great for those days that you just run out of time or purely don't feel like cooking (don't worry, we all have them!!) but to still get fueled up for the day.


Smoothies are a great way to get a ton of stuff into your body, but making sure you get enough of what will hold you over is key. Incorporating enough protein from a good quality protein powder is what keeps you full! And then adding in some healthy fats (avocado, nut butter, MCT oil etc) is what helps keep you satisfied after the smoothie! Fiber to also support healthy digestion can come from sources like flax and chia seeds.


Blend it all together for an easy, on-the-go breakfast that doesn't leave you missing out.






 

Protein-Packed Oat Bowl


Oatmeal is a nourishing meal when intentionally made. They often have a reputation for spiking your blood sugar, which is true when they are often consumed on their own. But just like anything, the balance of protein, fat, and fiber can help make your oatmeal bowl stretch your blood sugar curve and keep you full.


Add in a scoop of your favorite protein powder (I have done unflavored & Chocolate before which both work great!) along with a spoon full of nut butter, flax seeds, hemp seeds, and some shredded coconut this bowl becomes even more enticing. And any other favorites you have!


You can also make this the night before adding some yogurt for more of an overnight oat cold breakfast in the morning!





 

Eggs, your way!


You already know how healthy eggs are and there are so many ways you can prepare them. This can help keep them interesting for your taste buds.


If you have busy mornings, maybe prepping some egg cups to keep in the fridge or freezer is what you need. Or if you have a little more time, an egg scramble or egg casserole might be more up your alley. You can add in your favorite veggies or some chicken apple sausage maybe for some extra protein.


I recommend buying pasture-raised eggs when you can as this helps add more nutrient-packed benefits to your meal!







 

Breakfast Sammy

Who doesn't love a good breakfast sandwich?! These are also great to take on the go and can be prepped in advance if need be. They are so tasty and can be so fun to build.


You can use again regular bread, or even get some of your favorite buns. Food for Life also has English Muffins which are my favorites for breakfast sandwiches. You can go with meat-based options like bacon, sausage, or ham, pairing with your favorite egg (scrambled, over-easy, fried) with some cheese (DF or without also work great!).




Pro tip: I also love to add greens in when I can so sauteeing some kale or spinach or adding microgreens to a sandwich.



What is your favorite breakfast staple? If you try any of these be sure to comment or share on IG what your favorite it!
