I could probably eat breakfast foods for every meal of the day. Mornings are busy, I get it. Sometimes its easier to grab something like a muffin or bar, or maybe have nothing but coffee in the morning. Having a good breakfast sets the tone for the rest of the day. A healthy, protein rich breakfast is key to keeping blood sugar levels balanced and energy levels up. It also keeps you from over eating later on in the day. I always opt for something with protein, carbs and fat to keep me full until lunch.
Here are some quick on the go breakfast ideas:
Almond Butter Cup
Peanut Butter and Jelly
1 cup nut milk
1 tbsp coconut butter
1/2 frozen banana
1/2 cup frozen mango
2 tsp hemp hearts
1/4 frozen avocado

2 tbsp chia seeds
1/2 cup nut milk
Mix together and store in the fridge for 15-20 minutes or overnight.
Top with your favourites in the morning. Add a scoop of protein powder, top with nut butter, berries or banana, hemp hearts or cacao nibs for some crunch!
I love to make a bunch of protein pancakes in the morning to have throughout the week or even as a snack with some peanut butter.
Mix all ingredients together in a blender and cook like regular pancakes. Add more or less almond milk to make your pancakes thicker or thinner. Top with good quality maple syrup, fruit or nut butter!
Other easy options:
Seedy bread or whole wheat sourdough with smashed avocado, drizzle of lemon, sea salt and hemp hearts. Add an egg if you would like more protein!
