3 Ideas for a Simple, Healthy Breakfast

You’ve heard it before – breakfast is the most important meal of the day!  While I’m not sure you can really rank meals, it is certainly important to properly fuel your body in the morning so that you are prepared for the day!  We love a good, healthy breakfast.  Here are some of our favorites: 

Pico Breakfast Bowls

Serves: 1

¼ cup corn
¼ cup black beans
1 cup homemade pico
2 eggs

In a pan over medium heat, warm up corn and beans.  
Once corn and beans are heated through, add two eggs, scrambling them in the pan.
Once eggs are cook through, add them to a bowl and top with pico.

Why we love it: The protein in the eggs and beans will help keep you full til lunch time. The carbs are just enough to give you some energy, but not enough for your body to crash.  We especially love the addition of vegetables that help you mentally prepare yourself for a day of healthy eating!

Pro tip:  At the start of the week, put measured out pico in a mason jar.  Top with ¼ cup corn and ¼ cup black beans. You can create a mason jar for each day and grab and go!

Bell Pepper Breakfast Tacos

Serves: 1

½ bell pepper, sliced
¼ cup onion, sliced
2 corn tortillas
One egg
2 slices of turkey bacon (or regular bacon)
Optional: Hot sauce. We love the Mango Habanero Hot Sauce we found at Aldi!

-Cook 2 slices of bacon in a pan. Set aside.
-Saute onion and peppers in a pan.
-In a small bowl, scramble an egg.  Add to pan and cook through.
-Optional: add a splash of hot sauce

To Serve:
Warm corn tortillas in microwave for 15-30 seconds.
Top each tortilla with one slice of bacon, then top with half the egg mixture. Repeat with the second tortilla. Serve immediately.

Why we love it: Tacos. Enough said. Also, the protein in this is amazing. We LOVE to SPICE up our breakfast with this flavorful dish!

Pro tip:  Cook bacon in a pan at the beginning of the week AND saute your onions and peppers ahead of time. That way, all you have to do is reheat and add eggs in the morning!

Dessert for Breakfast

Serves: 1

4 oz water
1-2 cups of ice
1 banana
1 tbsp peanut butter (no sugar added)
0.5-1 cup spinach
1 scoop of your favorite flavor of Shakeology (don’t know what that is? Contact us and we will hook you up!)

Directions: Add all ingredients together and blend.  Drink immediately or freeze for 1-2 hours until it has a more frozen-yogurt type consistency.

Why we love it: It tastes like ice cream for breakfast, but is actually a crazy-good-for-you, healthy breakfast, and will keep you full and satisfied. This breakfast is also makes for a great grab-and-go option! 

Pro tip: A mason jar fits on a normal blender AND works as a cup!
