Super Simple Breakfast Equation

I find that when it comes to healthy eating, people tend to complicate things (actually, people tend to complicate things when it comes to most areas of life, but that's a topic for another day).

Keeping things simple was my biggest lesson learned in 2012. When I look back at some of the challenges I had throughout the year, most of them were because I (yes, me) overcomplicated the situation for no reason.

Breakfast

Today, I am going to show you how to make starting your day with a healthy breakfast super SIMPLE and not overly complicated at all. The reason I want to focus on breakfast is I find that people who start their day off on the right foot, STAY on the right foot for the rest of the day. The opposite is also true. Those people who start their day off with a junkie breakfast, have a hard time reeling it in and choosing a healthy lunch and dinner later that day.

So, today we will take a lesson on keeping breakfast simple from my 2 kiddos, Christian and Marcos, who both wake up with appetites larger than most men 10 x’s their size.

Since the morning routine around my house can be pretty crazy and hectic, things MUST be simple, otherwise, someone is going to end up screaming, and that usually will be me.

Here is the super easy equation I use when preparing everyone’s breakfast (and you’ll notice they are all easy and fast).

PROTEIN + FRUIT + GOOD FAT = BREAKFAST

If you just remember this simple equation, you can create a long list of easy to make breakfasts that should take you 5 minutes or less to put together.

Christian's Breakfast

Here is Christian’s breakfast from this morning:

  • 2 scrambled eggs (protein)
  • cooked in coconut oil (fat)
  • with strawberries and blueberries (fruit)

There is also zucchini bread on his plate (made with almond flour), but you could skip that and still have a complete delicious breakfast.

Kids Eating Breakfast

Here's another pic...this one is of my kids actually eating (and enjoying) their breakfasts.

They're eating...

  • eggs (protein)
  • cooked in butter (fat)
  • along with a bowl of homemade applesauce (fruit)

Here are some other great ideas for easy breakfast options that fit the Super Simple Breakfast Equation. (*Note: Nuts and nut butters count as a protein in your Beyond Diet plan but are also a great source of healthy fat.)

  1. Greek yogurt (protein), blueberries (fruit), and walnuts (fat)
  2. Cottage cheese (protein), strawberries (fruit), and almond butter (protein and fat)
  3. Almond butter (protein and fat) on 1 banana (fruit)
  4. 2 hard-boiled eggs (protein) with 1/2 avocado (fat and also a fruit) and sliced tomato (fruit)
  5. 2 scrambled eggs (protein) in butter (fat) with salsa (fruit and veggies)...ok, this one deviated a bit with the veggies in there
