Summer Breakfast Ideas You’ll Love

I don’t know about you, but when the seasons change, so do my habits and that includes the way I eat. For one thing, the weather is hotter. I’m usually more active with outdoor workouts, and also it’s hotter out! I tend to want to eat lighter, energizing meals that will keep me satisfied between meals.

It’s good to eat according to the seasons, because whatever happens to be in season will be more readily available and reasonably priced. What I’m loving right now is summer berries and heirloom tomatoes.

kale and berry salad

I’ve created 3 awesome recipes that you can make in just minutes! They recipes are vibrant in color signifying that they are anti-oxidant and nutrient rich. If you happen to try any of the recipes, please let me know!

3 Easy & Healthy Breakfast Ideas

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. When I start the morning with good choices, it is easier to follow throughout the day with more good choices. I’ve created 3 delicious and simple recipes that should suit you if you need something fast, or if you’ve got a little more time to treat yourself in the kitchen. Two out of the three recipes are completely vegan, and one includes eggs and leaves a lot of room for variation for your tastes.

I have created a mini frittata, smoothie, and avocado toast. I hope you will try out the recipes!

Peach Pecan Overnight Oats

Good morning, healthy bunnies! I hope you’re doing well and you had a great weekend. My weekend was action-packed from start to finish! I recorded videos, practiced recipes, exercised, and more. Also, I think I partied a little too hard in the eating department. I blame it on “market research” since I had to make sure the recipes were suitable for you all!

In any case, as I meal prepped last night I made sure to keep things simple, yet hearty. My breakfast this morning was AWESOME. You probably know by now I’m a fan of overnight oats, and this particular combination has no sugar added. Peaches are not in season, so you can use frozen or canned if you have trouble finding good ones.

You will need:

¼ cups diced peaches
½ cup rolled oats
1 tablespoon rough chopped pecans
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup filtered water

Mix all ingredients in a container with a seal, and they are ready to go the next day. They can be eaten cold, or warmed in the microwave for about one minute. I take mine to work and enjoyed them there.

Have a wonderful and fit day!

Overnight Oats with Light Coconut Milk

Last week I posted a short tutorial on making overnight oats from steel cut oats. Many asked for a written recipe, so here it is! Steel cut oats are the better option because they are less processed than the more popular rolled oats. As a result, steel cut oats are far easier to digest causing less discomfort after meals. Usually they take 8 to 10 minutes to cook, but with the overnight option, there is little preparation and less clean up time. It’s really a win-win.

You will need:

1/3 cup light coconut milk
1/4 steel cut oats
bowl
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 cup filtered water
1/8 cup dried blueberries
1/8 chopped walnuts

Add coconut milk and steel cut oats to a bowl and cover in the fridge overnight. After at least 4 hours, oats will have completely absorbed milk. Now add filtered water slowly (stirring occasionally) until they reach desired texture. Mix in cinnamon, blueberries, and chopped walnuts. Enjoy cold, or microwave for 30 seconds.

Strawberry Lemon Cream Smoothie

When my protein intake is too low, or when I work out very intensely, I have protein powder to give me more nutrients. Protein powder is great, because in one small drink I can add 20 or more grams of protein and with very few calories. The drawback though, is that as many powders as I’ve tried– the ones with the lowest sugar, do not taste very good. I’m always looking for healthy ways to mask the flavor. Before this, I never added lemon juice to a smoothie. The lemon was perfect! The flavor of this drink is a cross between strawberry lemonade and cheesecake. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

  • 1/3 cup light coconut milk
  • 1 serving of protein powder
  • 1 and 1/2 cups of crushed ice
  • 1/2 cup of strawberry halves
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tsp honey or alternative sweetener
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

 If you do not have crushed ice, simply add ice cubes to the blender first to crush. Next combine all ingredients and blend on high for 30 to 60 seconds, depending on the blender.

Scrambled Egg Whites: Give Them a Chance!

Me being into egg whites is a very recent thing. I never thought much about cholesterol, and separating the yolks from the whites just seemed like unnecessary,extra work. I know I’m not the only one, because people who have never even had egg whites say they know they won’t like them. It really takes me back to my days of reading Dr. Seuss. Remember Green Eggs and Ham? I hope I’m not ruining the story for anyone, but in the end, the eggs and ham are delicious! The same can be said for my scrambled eggs whites. Trying something new is worth while, especially when there are immediate, healthy benefits. I combine spices in a unique way so that for just 51 calories, nearly 11g of protein are yielded with no cholesterol. The egg whites are great for an omelet, or a more creative scramble mixed with your favorite veggies. The possibilities are endless!

 Ingredients (per serving):

  • 3 egg whites
  • nonstick spray (or oil)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt free seasoning salute
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 crushed red pepper
  • Optional: 1 tablespoon of milk
Separate egg whites and in a small bowl, whisk together spices. Use either nonstick spray or lightly oil the surface and place skillet on medium high. Once heated, add eggs and scramble. To prevent eggs from becoming too dry, remove from heat when about 80 to  90% firm and let them cook the rest of the way on their own.
