Revive Your Breakfast for Spring! 🍳🌸

If I took a poll of our readers, friends, and family what percent of them do you think would call themselves “morning people?” It’s becoming a rarity these days to find those who wake up easily in the mornings, love to arise with the sun and get moving in preparation for the day ahead!  One word: BREAKFASTEveryone may know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but that, unfortunately, does not mean that everyone takes the time to sit down to a solid meal before jetting off to work or school. According to the NPD Group, approximately 31 MILLION Americans skip breakfast. The same survey also found that many males ages 18-34 as well as teenagers (as opposed to younger children) do not eat breakfast. Women ages 55 and older were the most likely to eat a morning meal. What were the common reasons for skipping? People weren’t hungry, they didn’t feel like eating, or they were too busy or running late. 

Despite whether you are hungry or not, busy or not, you NEED to make time for eating breakfast. Breakfast consumption can increase the feeling of fullness, and high-protein breakfasts can help regulate appetite throughout the day. Breakfast is also good for your overall mood, metabolism, and overall health.

Kick-start your day with some new Spring recipes below! These are simple to prepare the day of, or, if you still think you will be rushed in the morning, these can easily be prepared the night or weekend before! You are worth a few extra minutes to have breakfast! 

Don’t stop, however, at simply eating breakfast. The morning meal is the perfect opportunity to insert some family time and inspiration into your day. A wonderful tradition to start with your kids is to do a simple devotional or bible verse first thing in the morning. It not only gets your kids’ minds jump-started, but it also has them (and YOU) putting your mind and focus on important things first thing in the morning. You can even stick those bible verses or quotes into your little ones’ or loved one's lunchboxes!

Here are some of our favorite breakfast recipes you can add to your mornings!

We are a huge fan of "Make ahead" anything so these 2 breakfast recipes are great to try for this Christmas Holiday!! Both are super easy & delicious!!! Enjoy!


Baked French Toast

Thankfully there is such a thing as healthy French toast. The Sprouted Cinnamon Raisin Bread eliminates refined flours and extra sugars, and the eggs add an additional protein boost that is welcome in any of my breakfasts. 

- 4 servings

  • 8 slices Sprouted Cinnamon Raisin Bread (or try whole wheat bread & sprinkled it w kids don’t care for raisins)
  • 1 1/2 cup almond milk (I use no sugar, vanilla)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup + extra for drizzling
  • 6 eggs
  • cinnamon

Cube bread into 1- 8 inch square pan

Whisk together almond milk, eggs and maple syrup.

Pour egg mixture over bread cubes, sprinkle with cinnamon and let soak for about 3 hours or overnight.

Bake at 375° for about 35-40 minutes, until eggs are set.

Cut into 4 pieces, drizzle with maple syrup and serve.

The portion size is huge and there are about 313 calories and 19 grams of protein per serving.

Back to School Breakfast On The Go!

How many times can I say, " Breakfast is the most important meal of the day?" Then why is still so easy for so many of us to neglect ourselves and skip breakfast? A number of studies show that people who successfully maintain significant weight loss eat breakfast just about every day. And exactly what you choose to eat for breakfast makes a big difference for your health. A variety of fruits can bring you near the minimum number of five daily fruit and vegetable servings recommended for lower cancer risk. Or, once in a while try a medley of vegetables in an omelet or smoothie! After fasting all night, breakfast can kick-start your energy level. If you choose healthful, slow-burning foods, like whole grains and fruits, you should be able to control your appetite until midday. Eating breakfast increases the metabolic rate which helps you to have more energy and weight control will be easier.

Back to School Breakfast On the Go!  Healthy Recipes for Kids and Adults!

1. A nonfat or low-fat yogurt parfait layered with fresh fruit and cereal, nuts or raisins. Here is my new quick granola recipe.


Quick and Easy Granola

Preheat Oven 450. Spray pan with Coconut Oil Spray

 2 Cups Whole Grain Oats 1 Cup of crushed Nuts (Almonds, Walnuts, Pecans, or Mix) ¼ Cup Ground Flax Seed 1 Tbsp Cinnamon ½ Tsp Salt 2 Tbsp Coconut Oil 2 Tbsp Honey or Maple Syrup 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract

 Mix first 5 ingredients in large bowl and spread over baking sheet. Bake on 450 for 3 min (stirring each minute). Mix together next 3 ingredients and pour over the toasted mixture. Bake another 2-3 minutes or until crispy! Makes 8-10 servings. Enjoy!

2. Low fat yogurt or protein powder mixed with fresh fruit in a blender for a vitamin-rich smoothie

peach smoothie

Peach Perfection Smoothie

1 Cup Almond Milk (optional: add in 2 Tbsp Orange juice) 1 frozen Banana 1 peach (with skin) 1 serving Protein Powder or 1 Cup Lowfat Greek Yogurt 1 serving Ground flax-seed ½ Cup crushed ice

Blend until smooth in blender! Enjoy!

3. Oatmeal or whole grain cold cereal with raisins or fresh fruit and dairy

 Maple Apple Walnut Oatmeal


 Prep time: 5 min. Cook time: 10 min.

 ½ cup water ½ cup low-fat milk ½ old fashioned large flake oats ½ tsp cinnamon ½ apple (cored and cut into small pieces) ¼ cup crushed walnuts 1 Tbsp 100% pure maple syrup ¼ cup water 1 scoop vanilla whey protein (equal to 20g protein)

 Bring ½ cup of water and milk to a boil in a small pot on medium heat (or in microwave). Add the oats and cinnamon. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until liquid is absorbed (approximately 7-10 minutes), stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and mix in apples, walnuts and maple syrup. Combine ¼ cup of water with whey protein in a separate bowl. Mix with a fork until protein is dissolved. For a smoother consistency, pour protein mixture into a blender or food processor and blend until protein is dissolved. Pour protein mixture over oatmeal and serve.

4. Breakfast bars are great for adults and kids -  I made these last night experimenting with just the right amount of honey, "O"s, and oats... so delicious and  I tasted one too many! Perfect balance of whole grains and protein in this homemade bar!

"O"utrageous Breakfast Bars

Outrageous Breakfast Bars

1/2 cup smooth or crunchy peanut butter 1/2 cup honey (local if possible) 1 tsp vanilla 1 tsp cinnamon 2 cups Whole Grain CheeriOs 1 &1/2 cups rolled Oats (or more if needed) 1/4 cup chopped/crushed almonds ¼ cup raisins (optional)

Heat the peanut butter and honey on the stove (or microwave) until almost boiling. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla & cinnamon. Add the oats, cereal, raisins and almonds. Press the mixture into a shallow, 9-inch pan lined with parchment paper (spray with coconut oil if necessary). Allow to cool, then cut into bars.

--In our busy lifestyles, take time on Sunday to prepare for the week. Double pancakes, waffles,or muffins you make on the weekend and freeze. Plan ahead and stock up on homemade, healthy items that you can just grab and eat on busy mornings.
