Healthy Breakfast Ideas

Feeling stuck in a breakfast rut? Don’t want to wait until school starts to get yourself and your family started on a healthy morning eating routine? Tired of the same old boring thing you have been eating for breakfast for years? The banana and coffee while you do your hair and make up just not hitting the spot anymore? In this week’s newsletter I wanted to share my favorite creative Breakfast ideas that are both low in sugar, full of nutrients, complex carbohydrates and protein! We all know that cereal and milk is not the best way for the kids or YOU to start the day but what can you eat that is both healthy and easy? With a little prepping and an organized kitchen, you can get creative and make a delicious healthy breakfast. I hope that you find these helpful and delicious!


Healthy Breakfast Ideas

Baked Apple and Yogurt Parfait

Ingredients: 2 small apples (my kids love Gala apples) 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1 1/2 tablespoons water 1/3 cup gluten-free oats 1/2 tablespoon melted coconut oil 1 tablespoon unsweetened shredded coconut 1/3 cup plantbased yogurt 1 tablespoon chopped pecans

Preparation: Core the apples and cut them into small, bite-sized pieces. Place the chopped apples into a bowl and stir in brown sugar, cinnamon and water. Microwave for approximately 1 to 1 ½ minutes until the apple is tender. Remove from the microwave and allow to cool.

In a bowl, mix together the oats, shredded coconut and melted coconut oil. In a clean mason jar, place a layer of oats and on top of that, layer the stewed apples and yogurt. Repeat until the jar is almost completely filled (leave approximately 1/2 an inch from the top.) Sprinkle with chopped pecans. This can be stored in the fridge for up to three days.

PB& Banana Oatmeal

Simply make rolled oats (NOT instant oats or anything with added sugar) on the stove with water (1 cup oats to 2 cups water) by heating on medium for 10 minutes then changing it to the low setting for another 5 minutes. This makes it nice and creamy and thick. Then add sliced banana, cinnamon, 1 to 2 tablespoons of peanut butter depending on the size and calorie needs of whoever is eating it and mix it up! My kids love to add raisins or goji berries to it as well.
