Breakfast Ideas

I have eaten a lot of cereal in my life. A. LOT. That was my go-to breakfast for basically my entire life. What's not to love? It's super fast & easy & depending on the cereal you get, moderately delicious.

When I was forced to go gluten free for Doodles, I switched to gluten free cereal. It's fairly easy to find now, with that "GF" plastered on the front of the box somewhere. Not a ton of options, but that's okay. At some point I decided I wanted to have a breakfast that was less processed & a little more nutritious. I struggled with ideas, but I've got a decent selection at this point.

- Apple slices with almond butter (this was my first choice when I stopped eating cereal, but I don't eat it as much anymore)
- Oatmeal with local honey, dried cherries, dried coconut flakes, & cinnamon
- Hard boiled eggs (I keep them ready in the fridge)
- Eggs over medium (I can add to these to make them more filling - avocado slices, pesto, & sometimes a piece of GF toast)
- No Bake Energy Bites (I basically keep a constant supply in the fridge)
- Smoothie using Young Living's Balance Complete protein powder, frozen berries, pineapple, & almond milk

On lazy Saturday mornings, the Hubs will make eggs & delicious uncured bacon. Pretty sure we'll have to start buying two packs of bacon for all of us soon, because everyone scarfs it down.

I'd love suggestions on other healthy breakfast ideas. What do you eat for breakfast?

  1. I like to make a batch of egg muffins on Sunday afternoon to have ready for mornings during the week. You basically scramble eggs in a muffin tin. I spray my pan (really well) with coconut oil, crumble cooked bacon or ham in the bottom of each muffin cup, mix 8 eggs with salt, pepper, garlic, and chives, and pour it over the meat. Bake at 400 for 15ish minutes, til a little brown on top. They refrigerate and reheat really well. It's so easy and yummy!
