Tip 1: Build your breakfast around protein for staying power.
My first tip is to build your breakfast around protein so I shared my 5-minute egg breakfast sandwiches. Start with whole grain bread, then add your Three Bridges egg bites. They have over 16 grams of protein per serving, come in four varieties and are ready in 90 seconds – super convenient!
Another protein option is homemade granola yogurt parfaits. For your granola, start with whole grain oats, add protein-rich nuts and seeds and then instead of refined sugar, I use Pure Maple Syrup from Canada in sweet and savory recipe applications because it contains vitamins, minerals and more than 67 different polyphenols, 9 of which are unique to pure maple syrup – so it really is a sweetener with benefits!
Tip 2: Build your breakfast around carbohydrates for energy.
Next, build your breakfast around energizing carbohydrates. I shared my 5-minute sweet and savory crispbreads. Start with your Wasa Multigrain or gluten free crispbread crackers – they have only 35-50 calories per slice and are made with wholesome grains like rye, barley and amaranth that give it a signature crunch. Top with your protein and produce toppings.
Fruit spreads are another easy carbohydrate source.Most fruit spreads contain about 65% sugar – the ones by Crofter’s Organic have 33% less, are non-GMO and made with high quality organic fruit ingredients sourced from around the world.
Tip 3: Build your breakfast around probiotic-rich foods for gut health
Finally incorporate probiotics, which are beneficial bacteria that support digestion and immunity. I shared organic probiotic beverages with 20 billion probiotic cultures by GoodBelly. They come in PlusShots, No Added Sugar JuiceDrinks and sparkling beverages. I found them in the juice and yogurt section at Jewel and Meijer.
