The Best Meal of the Day

Breakfast of course! I don't know about you but I LOVE breakfast. In fact, tonight I had breakfast for dinner!



Since I love breakfast so much I make sure to eat it every single day. Here are a few of the breakfasts that I eat on a regular basis.

Omelet
2 egg whites
1 egg
Large handful of spinach
Splash of milk
Sprinkle of cheese

It took me several tries to master the omelet but I finally got it.

Here's a recipe that I found on pinterest. They actually taste like pancakes, I have no idea how it works!

Banana "Pancakes"
2 eggs beaten
1 mashed banana
Splash of vanilla
Sprinkle of cinnamon
*Tonight I added a couple of spoonfuls of canned pumpkin and it was really good!

Mix all the ingredients together and cook like pancakes. Top with maple syrup and some walnuts if you'd like.

I'm telling you, they're delicious! More importantly, they're less than 300 calories for the whole batch and they have 14 grams of protein!


Mine are never this pretty but they're still delicious. 

Since I often eat breakfast once I've left the house, I developed a recipe for some breakfast muffins. The ingredients are pretty flexible, this week I made fall muffins:

Fall Muffins
1/2 C canned pumpkin
2 tbsp. coconut oil
1/4 C. sunflower seeds
1/4 C. walnuts
1/4 C/ chopped pitted dates
1/3 C. ground flax seeds
1/2 C. chopped dried apples
1 tbsp. chia seeds
1 egg
1/2 C. pumpkin seeds
1/4 C. Light maple syrup
cinnamon, vanilla and pumpkin pie spice to taste

Mix all the ingredients together and bake in a greased muffin tin at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes. You could substitute lots of different types of dried fruits and nuts if you want to mix it up.

If these recipes seem slightly strange to you it's because I try to follow a paleo diet (no grains or processed sugars). I'm not gluten intolerant or anything like that, I just do it for health purposes so I'm relatively lenient about it. That being said, when I make meals for myself I try to avoid grains.

They look kind of like this, but again, not as pretty.
Sorry for the bad photos today.
Still, all of these recipes are high in protein and fiber and will give your day a kick start. And of course no breakfast is complete without a cup of coffee!

What's your favorite breakfast food?
