Hey Y’all! Well, you guys asked for more quick and easy recipe ideas that are super healthy, so I’m delivering 😉
In today’s video, I’m sharing 4 Breakfast Recipes that are perfect for weekdays, especially if you’re always on-the-go. Be sure to watch the video above to see how I make each recipe.
All four recipes are gluten free, dairy free, paleo friendly, and low carb. So, it doesn’t get much healthier… unless, of course, you just eat greens all day, which ain’t gonna happen!
Recipe #1 – Low Carb Almond Butter Chia Pudding
There’s really only one thing that should sell you on this recipe, and that is the fact that my boyfriend literally begged me to make him one every day this week (and one for his best friend at work…Lol!).
But, seriously, if you’ve ever had the basic chia pudding recipe, then just think of this one as an upgraded chia pudding because the added almond butter, cinnamon, and low carb sweetener really takes it to the next level.
The cool thing about chia pudding is that it actually gets better the longer it marinates, so feel free to prep several servings at a time.
Recipe #2 – Hearty Avocado Egg Toast
When I first went gluten free years ago, one of the things I missed the most was – TOAST!
I used to eat peanut butter & honey toast every single morning with scrambled eggs. So, giving up my morning toast was like losing a boyfriend of 10+ years… yep, sad day.
But, luckily, we have substitutions. No, they’re not quite as good as real bread (just being honest). But, they definitely taste delicious, and don’t come with belly aches and bloating.
Today, I’m using the Julian Bakery Paleo Bread make with almond flour. I’m topping it with mashed avocado and a fried egg. This meal is the perfect balance of protein, healthy fats, and just enough carbs to keep you full and energized all morning long.
Recipe #3 – Low Carb Paleo Egg Muffins
These muffins are best made in advance and reheated throughout the week when needed. For this particular recipe, I loaded it up with fresh veggies to ensure we get in enough nutrition & fiber. Plus, the pastured eggs and bacon will provide your healthy fats and protein to keep you full for hours.
Egg muffins are so easy to make and are the perfect on-the-go breakfast option. You can also add organic cheese to this recipe if you’re not strict paleo.
Recipe #4 – Low Carb Brain Boosting Iced Latte
If you’ve ever heard of or tried Bulletproof Coffee, this is similar to it but more “latte” style. If you haven’t heard of it, then I highly recommend reading an article I wrote about the benefits of Bulletproof Coffee, specifically for fat loss.
Anyway, this latte is filled with healthy fats to keep your brain powered for hours & to keep your hunger signals off. And, because it’s low carb, your body will stay in fat-burning mode until your first “real” meal of the day.
Items I Use in these Recipes:
Bulletproof Coffee Beans (mold-free; no headaches)
Brain Octane Oil (great for mental clarity)
Grass-fed Ghee (great source of fat-soluble vitamins)
Hemp Seeds (high in omega fatty acids)
Birch Xylitol (a low carb sweetener derived from birch bark… if it doesn’t say birch, then it’s probably derived from GMO corn)
