Breakfast Inspiration - 3 Quick & Easy Recipes

Posted by

Are you sick of having the same thing for breakfast every morning?

It’s easy to get stuck in a rut when it comes to breakfast… we usually gravitate to whatever we know is delicious and easy, but this can lead to a lack of variety over time. We absolutely need variety in our diet; it’s a great way to ensure that we are getting an assortment of nutrients and it also decreases the chance of developing a sensitivity to certain foods.

Now that we are transitioning from winter to spring (if it ever stops snowing, that is!), it is a great time to take a look at your breakfast routine and overhaul it a little! Our bodies need different types of food depending on which season we are in, and with spring coming, it’s all about switching back to fresh foods! We’re not at the point where fresh food is abundant quite yet, but it is still a good time to change up our meals.

Need some inspiration? Here are a few of my personal favourite breakfast ideas…


Granola Parfait

1/2 cup yogurt (either cow’s milk or coconut milk – always plain & unsweetened)
1/3 cup Sonder granola
1/2 cup blueberries
1 tbsp ground flax seeds

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and enjoy!

Have you tried Sonder granola yet? It’s not your typical store-bought granola… it is made with the highest quality ingredients available, with a focus on organic and local whenever possible! It is also slow baked at a low temperature in order to keep all of the beneficial nutrients and oils intact, and there are three options available for those with food sensitivities (Classic, Without Nuts, and Without Grains). Find more information here.

Kick Start Elixir

1-2 cups dandelion root tea
1 tbsp Kick Start elixir mix
1 tbsp MCT oil
1 tsp honey (or 1 Medjool date if you have a high-powered blender)
1 scoop collagen powder

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and frothy.

Greens, Eggs & Sweets

2 eggs
1 cup diced oven roasted sweet potato (tip: prepare these ahead of time & simply warm up)
1 tsp olive oil
2 cups chopped kale or spinach
1/2 tsp Bragg’s sprinkle seasoning
1 tbsp sauerkraut (or fermented veggies of your choice)
sea salt & black pepper, to taste

Poach eggs until whites are cooked through but yolks are still runny. Meanwhile, sauté kale or spinach in a small pan with olive oil and Bragg’s sprinkle seasoning until greens are wilted.

Serve by topping warm sweet potatoes with greens, poached eggs, and sauerkraut. Add sea salt & pepper to taste. Enjoy!

All 3 of these meals are packed with a variety of nutrients, as well as healthy fats and fiber, which will both help to keep you feeling satiated until lunch. Of course there are tons of substitutions that can be made with these as well; swap out the flax for chia in the granola parfait; try a different elixir powder if Kick Start isn't your thing; or add extra veggies into the greens, eggs, & sweets! Getting experimental in the kitchen is the best way to find new combinations and meal ideas that you love... and to help you get started, we are offering a deal on any of the ingredients mentioned in this blog post!
