Breakfast. Most important meal of the day.

img_4329I get so tired of thinking of what to eat for breakfast.  I always start out with a banana and water before I workout. But then what?  I need post workout fuel for the rest of the morning.  I’ve done all manner of eggs – hard boiled, cooked all different ways, egg muffins, and whatever to go along with it – coffee, smoothie, more water.  And of course, oatmeal  – I can also do oatmeal six ways til Sunday.  Right now I’m stuck on stove-cooked oatmeal with cinnamon, sliced almonds, and a dab of honey.  But back to the egg thing.  Here’s one recipe that (like egg muffins) you can make ahead of time (like Sunday) and it will probably last you all week.  If you live alone, then maybe freeze half.

Fast and Fabulous Egg Casserole – of course, change out what you need to.  I often substitute the flour with coconut flour, and use jalapeno peppers and chile peppers instead of canned chile peppers, but do it how it works for you.

What is your go-to healthy breakfast?  Share some ideas please!

Sunday morning brunch: coffee with coconut creamer, an omelet with tomato & bacon, and a chunky monkey muffin.   Special treat.  Weekday breakfast? Banana, oatmeal with local honey & cinnamon, omelet with salsa & guacamole, coffee.

Remember, most of us Americans have it backwards: we need to eat big in the mornings, and less in the evenings…

One more thing: DAIRY!  I wanted to reiterate that you may have small amounts of heavy cream or cheese BECAUSE your body does not process these like carbs, and most people who are lactose intolerant can handle these two in small amounts just fine.  All other dairy is off the table this week. How are you doing with that?
