What’s on the Menu? Breakfast Edition

Welcome to a new series I’m doing to help you plan your menu for each meal of the day (and snacks!). I hear people all the time needing help putting some variety into their nutrition but struggling with how.

Eating the same things day in and day out is helpful to consistently staying on your nutrition plan, but it can get boring–and fast. And boredom is usually one of the main reasons why we stray from what we know is good for us.

I’m a bit of a creature of habit myself, but I’ve been working hard at mixing it up and trying new things. Here are just a few of the breakfast options to choose from.

Hot Breakfast

We don’t always have time to cook, but it’s SO good when we do!

  • Two scrambled eggs, one cup of wilted spinach and a piece of toast
  • Kale or spinach sauteed with mushrooms, asparagus and turkey bacon
  • Old fashioned oats with a cup of fruit
  • Veggie scramble (see recipe)
  • Avocado toast topped with an over easy egg and chili flakes
  • Banana, eggs and cinnamon pancakes

Cold Breakfast

Cold breakfasts don’t need to be cereal or plain yogurt. Mix it up! And who says that breakfasts have to be traditional breakfast foods?

  • 3 cups of fruit and a side of raw almonds
  • Veggies with hummus
  • Overnight oats with fruit
  • Acai bowl with blueberries, granola and coconut

What will you have for breakfast tomorrow, with all these options?
