snowflake8 :  No eggs when pregnant or just has to be cooked through? (im not preg but TTC).

I usually eat 1 egg cooked in coconut oil, add cilantro leaves, thinly sliced flavorful, sweet tomatoes, sriracha, pepper (no salt, im sutting back) and I wrap it all up in a brown Rice paper wrap. Super healthy, fast and really tasty. I just  got finished eating one 5 minutes ago!

SweetBeets :  I believe it just must be cooked through. So scrambled or hard boiled (like in egg salad) and omlettes should be fine πŸ™‚

snowflake8 :  probably not healthy at all… but I am pregnant and ALL I crave is carbs, carbs, carbs. I know people say to eat healthy, a lot of protein, etc, but I think pregnancy is one of only times when we can get away with eating junk. So my breakfast is a cup of decaf latte and donuts (I am trying all new flavors at Dunkin Donuts on my way to work).

lori85 :  I am personally not a fan…to me if I want something “unhelthy”, it has to have flour, eggs, dairy, butter and sugar in it. lol

I have the most delicious green smoothie I make in my nutribullet. Tastes like a chocolate milk shake πŸ™‚

Man, I love breakfast! I rotate depending on my mood and whether I worked out that morning. Always included is brewed coffee or a home-made cappuccino. Here are a few staples.

  • Oatmeal, chocolate whey protein, egg white, and spinach smoothie (post work-out)
  • Over-easy egg on avocado toast
  • Greek yogurt, spinach, and berry smoothie
  • Oatmeal with peanut butter and strawberries
  • Toast with almond butter

solnishko1186 :  haha ok – but just so you know a ton of people in my office who have your view point love these muffins and ask me when I am going tobring them in some more. They don’t taste healthy – they are really good πŸ™‚

But fair enough if you want a donut – you go get a donut girl!

SweetBeets :  of course! πŸ™‚

 2 ripe bananas

1 and 1/2 cup of almond flour  (if your local grocers doesn’t have it you can also just make your own if you have raw dry almonds and a food processor)

1tsp baking soda

1 tsp cinnamon -I add a 1/2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice too just because I love the extra spiciness of the nutmeg and cloves etc

1 tsp Vanilla

pinch of salt

 

2 eggs whisked

 

1/4 cup coconut oil melted

1/3 cup pecans or walnuts chopped

1-2 tbsps honey, depending on how ripe your bananas are and how sweet you like your muffins- I also use maple syrup sometimes instead of honey

1/2 cup dark mini chocolate chips – I use regular size chips and it works fine

in a small bowl smash the bananas

Next add the eggs, vanilla, coconut oil and honey to the bananas and stir until combined

In a larger bowl, combine all the dry ingredients (almond flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry mixture bowl – stir into a batter

next add the chocolate chips and chopped nuts and stir well (save a couple of tablespoons of the nuts to top the muffins)

Pour batter into a muffin tin lined with baking cups – fill each cup about 3/4 full

Sprinkle remaining nuts on top of muffins and place in oven

Bake at 350º F for about 22-25 minutes (oven times and temperatures will vary – test doneness by inserting a toothpick, if it comes out clean, they’re done)

Store covered in fridge, or you can freeze these to enjoy later

Side note: I have also replaced the banana with 1 regular sized can of pumpkin puree and added in some oranage zest and the juice of hlaf an orange and then replaced the choc chips with craisins and voila, you have seasonal pumpkin muffins πŸ™‚ They are also super moist and delicious.

Great thing is you can have one for brekafast and be guilt free about it because everything you are puting into your body is good for you and clean. Lots of protein in them and the dark choc is an antioxidant.

They’re great too for a snack about 1-2 hours before a workout or a run πŸ™‚

My breakfasts rotate. Sometimes I get on a green smoothie kick, sometimes it’s half of a papaya with passionfruit on top, sometimes it’s half of a watermelon, sometimes it’s a couple pomegranates. Okay so it always involves fruit. I have fruit for breakfast. Hahaha

Usually oatmeal and berries with almond milk. Sometimes a whole grain English muffin with PB or hard boiled eggs and fruit. Once in a blue moon a bagel, but I try not to indulge that.
