Today I will show you breakfast ideas and how to make, it takes only 5 minutes, so there really are no excuses when it comes to having a wholesome breakfast in the morning.
And you can enjoy this at home or you can take it on the road with you.
For me, this was enough for both my breakfast as well as for my morning snack. I will show you what I mean.
Let’s get started.
We’re going to start by making this deconstructed yogurt granola and fruit parfait.
I just started by cutting up some kiwi, and I also used some fresh raspberries, but you can use whatever fruit you have on hand or whatever fruit you enjoy.
And then on the side, I poured in some soy yogurt, I didn’t want to mix it together because I didn’t want it to get soggy, but you can use any yogurt you like.
Then I also included this roasted pecan and cranberry granola that is so delicious. I always like to sprinkle on some ground flax seeds as well as some Chia seed, just because of the healthy omega fats that these offers. I also included some coconut flakes. It’s easy to make this deconstructed parfait. Then mix it all together when you ready to eat it.
On to my morning snack.
It’s pretty much just a peanut butter and banana sandwich, except for instead of bread I use these whole-grain crackers. That I cut in half and then spread on a generous amount of peanut butter. Then using a ripe banana, cut it into very thick slices to place on top. And just a little bit of peanut butter on the other side to help it all stick together and so that it doesn’t come apart in my lunchbox. Then served it with some fresh oranges on the side.
So to make this mashed bean and avocado sandwich, we’re going to start by using half a cup of pinto beans, then a tablespoon of salsa, half a teaspoon of ground cumin, 1/4 teaspoon of paprika, and then we mash it together until it’s all well combined.
And then on two pieces of whole-grain bread, I put on some baby spinach and then distributed that mashed bean mixture that we just created. Now if you don’t have pinto beans, any beans that you have on hand will do. Then I put some chives, some tomato slices, as well as some ripe avocado, then I drizzled on some Sriracha hot sauce. Sprinkled on a little bit of freshly ground pepper, and that’s it to make that sandwich. I also served it with some fresh strawberries on the side. And that was my breakfast on this day.
As for my morning snack, this is another orange that I sliced up this time.
And then I also had this with some roasted peanuts and dried cranberries, to kind of make my own homemade trail mix, as well as these dried figs. And to be honest, this was a bit much for me just as a morning snack, so it trailed off into being my afternoon snack as well. That’s it for breakfast number two. Super super easy.
For the final, breakfast number three.
This is a chunky monkey banana sandwich, or whatever you want to call it.
So to make this you’re going to need two slices of whole-grain bread, and then spread on a generous amount of almond butter or whatever nut butter you’ve got on hand.
Then sprinkled on some chia seeds again, for those healthy omega fats that it offers, and then another ripe banana cut into thick chunks.
Now, what makes this incredibly delicious are these roasted coconuts. That I made just by dry roasting some regular coconuts on medium-high heat until it became fragrant and golden.
And then using Canadian pure maple syrup, I use just about half a teaspoon to drizzle on top, and it made so absolutely delicious and sweet.
So that’s it to make this sandwich, which is kind of a fun twist on the traditional nut butter and banana sandwich.
On the side, I just served it with some fresh grapes.
And that was my breakfast on this third morning.
As for the morning snack, it really doesn’t get easier than this.
It’s just two pieces of rice cakes, as well as the leftover salsa and avocado from yesterday’s breakfast, that I then mix together and it kind of makes this faux kind of salsa guacamole dip for those rice crackers.
Then on the side, I put in some mixed greens, to enjoy the leftover salsa with once the rice cakes were done, and some fresh basil as well.
And that’s it for breakfast number three.
