Ehh!! Let’s celebrate some food!
I’ve put together some pretty cool breakfasts recently, so I’m here to share them with you. Hope you get some inspiration!
I’ve been trying to stretch my taste buds. Partly for the creative aspect, partly for the curious aspect, and partly because I havn’t really been craving much of anything lately and have been feeling a lack of excitement in the food department.
I’ve only had these on my “to make” list for, er, years… but every time I go to make them I forget that they call for cauliflower. D’oh. But that also means you are getting three different veggies in one patty: sweet potato, cauliflower and spinach. They are gluten free and can be as cheeeeeeesy as you want them.
My favorite way to enjoy them has been topped with plain full fat yogurt (unpictured) and strawberries.
2) Avocado + Cheese + Tomato + Toast
This little snack plate is definitely my favorite combination at the moment. My favorite oat bread spread with grass fed butter, then smothered with smashed avocado, old white cheddar, tomato and a generous sprinkling of salt. The perfect bite.
3) Good ol’ yogurt bowls
Especially after a few solid days of cafe baking, a plain healthy yogurt bowl is what my body asks for.
My favorite way to eat oats right now is to quick soak them in the morning – putting them in water (along with cinnamon, vanilla, salt and a spoon of yogurt), turning the water to boil, and then taking the pot off the element and letting it sit for an hour or more. I love the resulting consistency and the soaking method makes all the nutrients easier to digest. Adding in a spoon of yogurt at the beginning adds in some probiotics to increase the break down of phytic acid even more. Then all I need is to top them with some plain grass fed yogurt, banana, and my favorite of the B Happy Peanut Butters: Go Lucky.
5) Breaded Butternut Squash + Fried Eggs + Greens
Yep. Some deep fried tater-tot like breaded butternut squash and some perfectly fried farmers eggs. Fresh farmers eggs have so many benefits, but one is definitely the fact that they cook up so much better than cheap eggs. Plus some greens on the side as some days recently have been quite lacking in the veggie department.
Topped with a dollop of plain yogurt, a drizzle of pure maple syrup and a hefty dose of peanut butter. Fruit on the side and smushed up all together onto my fork and into my belly. Mmmm.
6) Assorted Buns + Nut Butters Plate
I picked up a sample bag of different types of buns at the farmers market last week, so I’ve been “sampling” them out on snack-y breakfast plates. This day’s was one beet roll, half a sweet potato roll, and one – I think – challah roll? This one was actually my favorite. Spread with almond butter and cashew butter, side of strawberries.Five Fun Recent Breakfasts! Pancakes, Cheese, Avocado and Waffles! #breakfast #eeeeeats #foodporn Click To Tweet

Not a hugely exciting week. But I did get a few nice things…
