5 New Breakfast Ideas


Change up your breakfast this spring!!



Spring is a great time to change your eating habits. Think lighter, healthier meals especially at breakfast time.








Breakfast Bowl

  • Hard-boiled egg, over a bed of arugula, grape tomatoes cut in half and tossed in a small amount of avocado oil or avocado, cilantro, salt and pepper.

  • My favorite way to make a hard boiled egg. Place 3-4 eggs in a pot and add water to about 1 inch above the eggs. Bring it to a boil, then turn off the burner and let it sit for 5 minutes. Then, rinse with cold water or you can also let them sit in an ice bath for easy peeling.

  • Over cooked hard-bodied eggs typically have a strong sulfur odor. Cooking eggs this way eliminates that smell and tastes delicious!

Non-dairy Cashew Yogurt

  • Add almond butter or almonds, and blueberries

  • Cashew yogurt, coconut yogurt, and almond yogurt are all great substitutions to try, just make sure to buy one with low or no sugar.

  • Dairy can trigger an inflammatory response in the body

Smoothie Bowl

  • 1 cup of organic mixed berries

  • 1 small ripe banana

  • 2-3 tbsp of coconut milk or almond milk (unsweetened)

  • 1 scoop of greens or protein powder

  • Topping options: almond butter, sunbutter, coconut, nuts, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds, chia seeds, sliced strawberries, sliced bananas, healthy granola.

Banana Pancakes

  • Scramble one egg and mix with 1 mashed banana

  • ⅛ tsp vanilla or a pinch of cinnamon

  • Add coconut oil to a pan: make silver dollar sized pancakes. That’s it! So simple.


Brussels Sprouts and Sweet Potato Hash

  • Slice veggies into bite size bites and roast them.

  • Crumble cooked turkey bacon or regular bacon over the veggies.

  • Top with one egg

  • This is a great meal anytime of the day!
