In a time when our home and work life has become one, taking the time to make and eat healthy meals is needed now more than ever. Here are some of our favorite breakfasts to make:
Protein Pancakes Starting your day with pancakes is a great idea! This protein-packed recipe will help you feel energized without the crash later on. A fun thing about this recipe is that you can make it your own with a few swaps. Try adding warming spices like cinnamon or nutmeg, if you enjoy fruit add small pieces of banana or berries into the batter. Another tip, this recipe can be used in a waffle maker too!
Overnight Oats A recipe that has gained a lot of popularity over the last few years is overnight oats. This breakfast option is one of the easiest breakfasts you can make, especially because most of the work is done the night before. With tons of flavor options, you can make your oats exactly to your liking. Nut butters, fruits, and spices are yummy add-ins! Also, if you are looking to up your protein intake, add a scoop of protein powder in as well.
Egg Muffins Another recipe that the majority of the prep work is done beforehand, egg muffins are a great way to start your day and get your daily dose of veggies in. There are so many delicious combinations to try, some of our favorites include broccoli and cheese, sundried tomato and oregano, and Greek-style with feta and olives. Make sure to reheat the egg muffins in the microwave for 20 to 30 seconds before eating.
