Breakfast is arguably the best meal of the day. What other meal do we sometimes eat twice in one day (breakfast for dinner = best thing ever) and gets to set the tone on a daily basis for the rest of our day? Here are three healthy breakfast recipes that are easy to make and will keep you fueled all morning long.

Overnight Chia Pudding Parfait

Make this one before bed and it’s ready for you to grab on the go in the morning.

Ingredients:

  • 1 mason jar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk

  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

  • ½ tsp sweetener (if desired, can use honey, maple syrup, agave, stevia etc.)

Directions: Mix the chia seeds into the milk in jar and stir for about 2 minutes until the mixture begins to thicken. Then stir in everything else, continuing to mix for about another minute or so. Put in the fridge and let sit for at least 4 hours, overnight is best though.

Add-ins: Options are limitless. This pudding can be used as a great base for granola and fruit parfait, can be eaten alone, can be used as a dessert base (chocolate chia pudding anyone? Just add a tablespoon of raw cacao!) One of my go-to favorite topping combos is half a banana, a tablespoon of almond butter and a handful of raspberries (fresh or frozen).

Sweet Omelette

Inspired by Amy at The Holistic Ingredient.

Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • ¼ tsp honey

  • 1 Tbsp unsweetened almond milk

  • 1 tsp coconut oil

Filling:


  • ¼ cup unsweetened almond milk

  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds

  • ¼ teaspoon honey (or maple syrup, stevia, agave, etc.)

  • Optional add-ins: 
  • ½ mashed banana 
  • cinnamon
  • ¼ frozen raspberries (will make an amazing raspberry jam-like filling once warmed and stirred)

Directions: Mix up the chia filling first, placing the milk and chia in a small bowl. Mix for about a minute or so, until the mixture starts to thicken, and place in the microwave for about a minute and half. Take it out, and add in any additional sweetener or fruit that you’d like, mix, and put back in the microwave for another minute and half or so, stir, cover, and let sit while you mix up your omelet.

For the omelet: Whisk just eggs for about 2 minutes, or until super fluffy. Heat oil in a small skillet on medium. Add in remaining sweetener, spices, and milk and whisk a bit more. Pour eggs into pan and cook for about 2 minutes, or until the edges are firm, and swirl the runny stuff in the middle out to the edges, cooking a bit more until flip-able (about 30 seconds). Cook for about a minute on the other side.

Put your warm chia jam and any fresh berries or fruits in the omelet, fold over, and enjoy!

You can also omit the chia jam for those dairy loving folks and use a dollop of greek yogurt in it's place.

Overnight Oats, Summer Edition  

A great grab and go hearty breakfast that can be eaten cold in summer months or warmed up in the winter months. 

Base:


  • 1 medium-sized mason jar
  • 1 cup unsweetened nut milk of choice (I prefer almond or hemp
)
  • 1/3 cup oats (g-free oats for those with gluten intolerance)
  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds or ground flax seed


Optional add-Ins:

  • 1 heaping teaspoon of cinnamon, ground ginger, nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice, etc.

  • 1 teaspoon sweetener of choice (maple syrup, honey, agave, stevia, etc.)

Toppings: Banana, cherries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, almond/peanut/cashew butter…etc

Directions: In mason jar, mix the milk, oats, and chia/flax until well combined. Then add in cinnamon and sweetener. Stir for about 2 minutes, or until all mixed up. (A great shortcut if you have a blender is putting milk, sweetener, and spice in blender, blending until well combined, then placing that mixture in jar and adding oats and chia/flax). Put in fridge and let sit overnight (at least 8 hours is recommended). You can add any fruit you wish to put in either at night, or throw it on top in the morning before you jet out.
