Two Superfood-packed Breakfasts

 

Breakfast is one of my favorite meals of the day, even though I truly believe that all meals are equally important. What makes breakfast so special is that it sets the tone for the rest of the day. There is nothing better than starting the day with a nutritious meal that holds you over until lunch and makes you choose the right foods for the rest of the day with no sugar spikes or crashes.

I also believe that having 2-3 different breakfasts and alternating them during the week goes a long way. It helps to avoid getting bored and to enjoy a wide variety of nutritious foods. Here I just mention a couple, but feel free to add others to your repertoire.

Delicious Protein Shake: easy to make in a blender (manual, nutribullet or similar). You can even prepare the dry ingredients the night before, add the rest in the morning and blend it all! Tons of superfoods in this one: protein, antioxidants, fat, seeds, spices, fiber, veggies…a powerhouse of nutrition!! Easy to eat when you don’t have a ton of time.

Ingredients:

1 cup of unsweetened almond milk
1-3 scoops (it depends on the type of protein) of Vegan Protein Powder (I like rice or pea, no sugar) OR Collage Protein
1 handful of organic blueberries
1 handful of raw spinach
1-2 TBSP of Ground Flaxseeds
1 tsp of Maca
1 tsp of Cinnamon
1 tsp of Coconut Oil (optional, for additional fat content)
1 cup of organic coffee (optional, for an additional twist!)

Gluten Free Oatmeal with nutritious toppings: super easy to prepare on the spot! You can heat on the stove or microwave. Plenty of protein, antioxidants, spices, seeds, GF whole grains that won’t spike your blood sugar as much. It really feels like you are feeding your body the most nutritious food in the planet! Very filling.

Ingredients:

1 cup of unsweetened almond milk
1 cup (or instant bag content) of GF Oatmeal. I like the one at Whole Foods
1 handful of organic blueberries
1 tsp of cinnamon
1 TBSP of Ground Flaxseeds (optional, it depends on the desired consistency)
