The Most Important Meal + 5 Super Simple Recipes

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Yet most of us skip it regularly (don't lie - we all do it). Instead of skipping it, or just scarfing down some Cheerios and coffee, focus about creating quick, simple, nutrient-dense meals. So I know that sounds completely impossible but I'm here to tell you that not only is it doable - but it's so easy. Promise. And if you don't believe me, try one (or all) of these meals this week! Not only will you be empowered to start eating breakfast again, but you'll stay full until lunch!


Oatmeal with Blueberries

  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats (steel cut is amazing but takes a while to cook)
  • 3/4 cup non-dairy milk (unsweetened!)
  • 1/4 cup frozen blueberries

Heat oats and milk in the microwave for about 2minutes (test out the timing for your own microwave - they're all different)
Toss in blueberries on top - this will not only be delicious and nutritious but will also cool down the oats enough so you don't have to waste time waiting for it to cool #protip


Eggs in a Basket

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 slices of whole grain or gluten-free bread
  • Sprinkle of nutritional yeast
  • Salt & Pepper for taste

Heat skillet on medium with a splash of olive oil (or skip the oil if non-stick)
Cut a circle out of each slice of bread in the middle
Place the bread on the skillet and crack an egg in to the circle of each slice
Cook for about 1-2minutes the flip the bread and put the cut out circle of bread back on top
Cook another 1-2minutes (or longer for firmer eggs)
Top with nutritional yeast, salt & pepper
