3 renewing breakkie recipes

It’s no secret that I am the biggest advocate of breakfast. I have this love for starting my morning intentionally, with the purpose of nourishing my body well, and giving it the things it needs to start strong and sustain the demands of the day. As with every new year, this one has come with the desire to renew, refresh, and restart my wellness routine. I love the idea of renewal as a theme for January. It’s a month to begin again, and these three breakfast recipes are great (and super easy) go-to’s for anyone looking to revamp their morning rituals.

My first go to… matcha! Matcha is an antioxidant powerhouse- a green tea extract that is known to be mood-enhancing, can aid in weightloss, and has a high caffeine content that releases slowly so no spiking and crashing the way that coffee elicits. This makes it a great morning fix. I like adding matcha powder to smoothies, and it is especially delicious in this morning matcha chia pudding.

Chia Puddings are one of my most favorite breakkie go-to’s, mostly because they are so easy. Literally- SO easy. And they’re versatile. Because chia is pretty flavorless, you can experiment with any flavors you love! Vanilla nut, banana, mixed berry, chocolate and coconut- the options are endless. Plus! You can make it the night before and it’s ready to go with you out the door in the morning.

Add Matcha and you’ve got a perfectly healthy {caffeine included} breakfast.

Matcha Chia Pudding

  • ¼ cup chia seeds
  • 1½ cups almond milk (or milk of choice!)
  • ½ tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons matcha green tea powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a bowl, combine your chia, milk, honey and vanilla. In a small cup, whisk your matcha in a splash of warm water. Then add the matcha mixture to the chia! Pour into serving cups and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes, but preferably overnight. Top with your favorite toppings like granola, berries, coconut, and mint.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Next up: my everyday easy favorite, a poached egg with kale + quinoa.

This breakfast is one that I make at least once a week. It’s loaded with protein, full of flavor, and packed with fiber and nutrients that keep you full all morning. I like to make a batch of quinoa at the beginning of each week and use it throughout my week’s recipes.

This breakfast is quick and also one of those ones you can make however you like! Add in avocado, sriracha, sunflower seeds, or fresh herbs to switch up the flavor. I’ve recently been drizzling mine with truffle oil because it is THE BEST.

Poached Egg with Kale + Quinoa

  • 1 egg
  • 1½ cups kale
  • ½ tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup cooked quinoa

In a large bowl, combine your kale and quinoa. Top with salt and olive oil, and massage the oil into the kale for about 1 minute. In a shallow saucepan, bring your water to a boil and poach your egg (Instructions here!). Pour your kale mixture into a shallow bowl, top with your egg, and sprinkle with salt and pepper!

And lastly! This is my spin on a no-grain lox fix!

It also is SUPER easy- but full of protein and Omega 3’s, so you’re guaranteed to feel great and satisfied all morning long.

Lox + Avocado Plate

  • 2-4 oz smoked salmon
  • ½ avocado
  • ½ tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon hummus
  • 1 cup arugula
  • A lemon wedge

Grab a plate, then slice your avocado. Layer it with smoked salmon and hummus. Arrange your arugula on the side, then drizzle the whole plate with lemon, salt, olive oil, and pepper!
