Some of us are morning people that jump out of bed and are ready to take on whatever the day has in store for us, while others, maybe need a little more motivation to get out of bed. Whichever type of morning person you are a beautiful breakfast can fuel you and also mentally get you ready to take on the day. Beets are not often classified as a superfood but they absolutely should be. Their gorgeous red-violet pigment comes from phytonutrients known as Betacyanins. Betalains are known to have powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory molecules. Beets are also heart healthy thanks to being rich in folate and vitamin B’s, which also support cellular metabolism. Beets are a good source of fiber and 1 cup of cooked beets has only 75 calories.
I dared to ask the question, “can I healthify that greasy diner skillet?”. I set out and after a few failed attempts I have 4 Healthy Breakfast Skillet recipes for you that balance nutrition and taste. From the loaded veggie skillet to the cleaned-up meat-lovers skills, or the quick and easy Turkey Skillet for weekday morning to a gut-loving greens skillet which supports digestive functioning thanks to the fermented sauerkraut. There is something for everyone.
Granola. There is something so satisfying and versatile about a good granola mixture. Granola can be a healthy breakfast option in a bowl with milk and fruit, sprinkled on top of greek yogurt, or even as a baked topping on your breakfast muffins. Granola can also be a high protein, high energy snack that you can take on a hike with you or as a 3 pm snack. Granola can even elevate your dessert by adding a crunchy topping to your roasted stone-fruit and whipped cream. Clearly, I am a fan of yogurt.
Do you feel like you never have time for breakfast? You are busy rushing around and getting ready for the day that your only chance for breakfast is hitting a drive-thru for a sugary latte and pastry? If so, you are not alone! 51 Million people in North America skip breakfast and those that do eat breakfast, research shows they typically consume our entire days worth of sugar unkowingly in prepackage breakfast foods.
