Here's my three favorite breakfasts right now…

Pancakes
1/2 cup egg whites
1 banana OR 1/2 cup cooked sweet potato or pumpkin
2 tbsp ground flax
1/2 scoop whey protein (~2 tbsp/10 grams)
1 tbsp chia seeds
flavorings…a little cinnamon and/or vanilla extract
other additions…1 tbsp cocoa powder or cocoa nibs

put everything in a blender and blend until smooth.  cook like a pancake (or put in waffle maker). makes one big one or two small.  top with some peanut butter or almond butter and raspberries, blueberries, or strawberries.  


Eggs and Avocado
1 whole egg + 3 whites (~1/3 cup)
1/2 avocado
fresh lemon or lime juice
salt and pepper
salsa (optional)

scramble eggs in a lightly oiled fry pan.  cut up avocado, juice lemon over top, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  top with scrambled eggs.  add some salsa if you like.  serve with a small starch if you desire, like a piece of whole grain bread or a muffin.  


Soaked Oats
1/3 cup plain rolled oats
3/4 cup kefir OR 1/2 cup plain non-fat Greek yogurt + 1/4 cup almond milk
1 tbsp honey or maple syrup 
1 tbsp peanut or almond butter
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp cocoa nibs (optional) 
1 tbsp dried fruit, I used Goji berries here

mix everything together the night before, put in fridge, and enjoy in the morning.
