Ah, breakfast…how we love to neglect you.
I tend to think that breakfast is a pretty important meal. While I’m not a hardcore “everyone MUST eat breakfast” kind of guy, and I realize that there are some advanced nutritional tactics people can use that may avoid eating breakfast, I AM of the belief that if you don’t have the discipline to eat breakfast daily, you don’t have the discipline to try any kind of advanced tactics.
Simply, this means most people should be eating breakfast.
Let’s quickly touch on that pesky little excuse of “I don’t have any time in the mornings.”
Sorry, but I don’t ever, EVER buy this one. You have time, you’re just spending it doing things that you find more important.
OK, now that my incredible logic has you convinced that you have time and you will now be making yourself breakfast every morning, the questions is “what do I eat?”
This question always makes me laugh a little on the inside. It pretty amazing how challenging something as simple and natural as making breakfast can become when it’s totally foreign.
Making breakfast can be incredibly simple and easy…oh, and quick too.
Here are 3 delicious breakfast recipes that I think you will enjoy.
(You can adjust quantities of food based on your preference. These amounts are what I personally use.)
-1 med. yam (washed, peeled and grated)
-4 turkey sausages (sliced)
-¼ cup diced onion, peppers
-1 Tbsp. olive oil
Ahead of time (like the night before), heat skillet over medium heat. Add olive oil and grated yam. Cook, stirring occasionally until tender. (Approx. 20-30 minutes) Once tender, add onions and peppers and cook for 2-3 minutes. Let cool and place in fridge.
In the morning, place ½ of the yashbrown mixture in a microwave safe bowl (save the other half for another breakfast), add eggs and sliced turkey sausages. Stir. Cook on high in the microwave until eggs reach desired doneness, stirring occasionally. (2-3 minutes)
-1 container strawberry Greek yogurt (I prefer Chobani)
-1 scoop vanilla protein powder
-small handful blueberries
-1 Tbsp flaxseed
-2 slices whole grain bread
-2 Tbsp. natural peanut butter
-sliced fruit (banana, apple, strawberries)
Make like a normal PB&J, replacing jelly with fruit.
Wasn’t that easy?
