Sorry I’ve been MIA, between work and taking care of my health my free time has been less and less. Thankfully this is my last week of work and although I will miss the girls so much it will be nice to focus on my health. Since I’ve been working it’s been challenging to find time to relax and focus on me. I also have not worked out at all the past few weeks and that is a big no no for me. Not only do I feel better when I work out, the doctors want me to workout. I start Lauren Gleisberg fall challenge next week and I could not be more excited. I bought a home gym bench and have my workout area ready to go.
Anyway, for today’s Wellness Wednesday post I’m posting my go-to breakfast I have been loving. Not only is it healthy, it seriously taste like dessert and is so easy to make.
Combine a pack of instant plain oatmeal with 1/4 C water and 1/2 C. strawberries
Mix ingredients together
Cook in microwave for total of 3 minutes stopping every 45 seconds to mix.
Girls I’m so in love with this breakfast, plus it’s giving me all the fall vibes. 🍁
Another week, another wellness wednesday post for ya! I don’t know about you but breakfast is my absolute favorite meal of the day. I could honestly eat it 3 meals out of the day haha I never get tired of it! Today I want to share my top 5 easy and healthy breakfast ideas with y’all! I probably have at least 10 favorite breakfasts I rotate between…but today I’ll keep the list to 5, and maybe do a part two down the road! These are all healthy breakfast ideas you can make SUPER fast, and will keep you feeling fueled and filled up for the day!
Healthy breakfast idea #1: Hard boiled egg on avocado toast
I love to boil a whole dozen eggs at the beginning of the week, to either use at breakfast or for a snack! I love this breakfast because it doesn’t require any pots or pans and tastes so good. I just get a piece of bread (I love Dave’s Killer bread!), toast it…mash up an avocado [I usually use half of an avocado], add salt and pepper, and then add the hard boiled egg! Sometimes I’ll do two eggs on the toast, and I always have this with fruit!
Healthy breakfast idea #2: My go-to green smoothie
I love making this green smoothie for breakfast because it’s easy, it fills me up, and allows me to get in some greens first thing in the morning! Here is my go-to green smoothie recipe:
a handful of blueberries or grapes (whatever I have in the fridge at the time, both work well!)
two cups of spinach
1/4 cup of greek yogurt (I love the Fage 0% fat, but you can use whatever you want!)
1/2 teaspoon of mace powder
2 tbsp PB powder
1 tbsp ground flax seed
splash of almond milk
3-5 ice cubes (yes, that’s insanely specific lol trust me)
Healthy breakfast idea #3: Egg scramble
If you can’t tell, I’m obsessed with eggs haha. This is another breakfast idea that will help you get your veggies in early in the day! I love to saute spinach and bell pepper and sometimes onion depending on my level of laziness that morning lol…and then scramble two eggs and add it to the pan. Top this scramble off with avocado and add a side of fruit and you’ve got a colorful and healthy breakfast! If we happen to have bacon, I’ll have a side of bacon with this as well. Gimme all the protein!
Healthy breakfast idea #4: Oats!
I LOVE oatmeal y’all! Especially on a cold morning, but year round I think it’s such a comfort food. Not to mention SO good for you and really filling! Purely Elizabeth is my favorite brand of oats – I love the apple cinnamon flavor! I love Purely Elizabeth oatmeal because it has organic quinoa, amaranth and flax…so this superfood blend packs 8g of protein and 6g of fiber! I usually just make this with water, and add some RX bar nut butter for a healthy fat!
Healthy breakfast idea #5: Greek yogurt parfait
I love greek yogurt because it is PACKED with protein, so it keeps me feeling really full! One of my favorite healthy breakfast ideas is half a cup of plain (full fat!) greek yogurt, add in lots of fruit – raspberries and blueberries are my fave with this, and then I add in some Purely Elizabeth granola! I love this breakfast because it’s one you can throw together in 60 seconds, and not have to use any pans…so easy clean up! This is also an idea you could make ahead of time and bring to work with you!
