Its not always smoothies for breakfast
Oh sure, I did the smoothie thing for a while, when I first became aware of nutrition and I thought I was magnifying my nutrients by combining them all into one glass. I think I stayed with that for 2 to 3 years, and I do think it was beneficial. Much better and more nutritious than a donut and a coffee or a fast food breakfast grabbed on the go.
Now I take the time to enjoy my breakfast. There are so many cereals available; my favorite is oats. Old fashioned oatmeal, steel cut oatmeal, overnight oatmeal; all with fruits or seeds I may feel like adding at the time. Also good for breakfast are any pancake or muffin or biscuit you make yourself without chemicals or preservatives, and following your own guidelines about what is right for you, such as no dairy, added fats, sugars, salt or white flours… so many recipes, so many possibilities.
Another breakfast possibility is anything you may have leftover from a previous meal. Throw out the strict rule book that tells you “no soup or veggies for breakfast”, make your own rules. Potatoes sweet or otherwise, are always good for breakfast; hash browns, boiled, or baked, again, anyway you like them. Scrambled tofu makes a very satisfying breakfast as does an omelet or frittata made with chick pea flour and any veggie you’d like to accompany with it.
Take the time to nourish your body and nourish your soul with a satisfying, nutrient packed breakfast, enjoyed with the beverage of your choice and and a few moments of quiet to take the chance to focus and prepare yourself mentally for your day.
