Although breakfast is not a meal that’s included in every diet, it is the meal that can make or break your day. I personally love breakfast. It’s a delicious opportunity to start off your day right. My breakfast recipes not only give me the energy I need to conquer any tasks on my schedule, but also gives me the focus I need to execute at the top of my game. Unfortunately for others, I see many breakfasts out there that are actually sabotaging your energy levels, including :

Sorry, your breakfast carbs aren’t helping

It might seem like I’m calling out caffeine and carbs – and I am! As tough as this can sound, carbs can be pretty damaging to the body. Health and weight aside, common carbs that are included in breads and pastas tend to have a high glycemic index. That means that your carbohydrate-loaded breakfast will spike your blood sugar levels, and with every high, comes a low. That late morning or lunchtime drowsiness is often caused by your blood sugar dropping from its’ previous high. I hate that feeling, which is why I set out to develop recipes that would allow me to make it through my day without letting my energy levels dip. Hopefully you’ll find something here to help you jump start all your days from today on. I even loved one of these enough to be eating it 365 days a year.

If you want to meal prep to save some time, just grab a couple mason jars and get it done all at once.

Throw oats and chia seeds into a bowl. Give a quick mix if you don’t want the chia seeds to end up stuck together. Pour in enough almond milk to cover the oats. Spoon over a serving of Greek yogurt. Top it off with peach chunks and a generous helping of cinnamon. Mix together and let sit for a few minutes to allow peaches to defrost. For a firmer consistency, use rolled oats.

Prep:

If you want to meal prep to save some time, just grab a couple mason jars and get it done all at once.

Toss your oats, chia seeds, and chocolate chips into a bowl. Fill up with almond milk to cover the oats. Add in peanut butter. Mix ingredients. If you would like to have it hot, throw it in the microwave for 30-45 seconds. This recipe is one of my personal favorites.

Berry Smoothie

I love to start my day off with a smoothie. Not only is it packed with vitamins, the blended drink helps deliver the nutrients to my body much quicker than solid food does, so I can guarantee high energy levels soon after I down it. I would recommend that you have your next meal a little earlier, since I have noticed that my energy levels do tend to drop a little quicker if all I have for breakfast is a smoothie.

Ingredients:
(Quantities vary based off taste preference and diet goals)

Prep:

I like to keep all my ingredients, minus the banana, in the freezer. When I’m ready to have my smoothie, I’ll just throw the veggies, water, and matcha in a blender for a quick blitz. Then I’ll add in the berries and banana in and finish it off.
