Breakfast is the “most important meal of the day”. I am sharing 3 easy breakfasts to make on News 4 Jacksonville.
Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal
First, we have apple cinnamon baked oatmeal. Combine oats, chia seeds, cinnamon, milk and 2 packets of the Brainiac Foods chocolate Almond Brain Butters which you can find at whole foods, amazon and brainiacfoods.com – these are packed with essential brain nutrients included omega 3 fatty acids and choline. There is also honey almond, honey peanut and chocolate peanut all with 4-7 grams of protein. Then add 1 chopped apple – these are the Yes! Apples sweet tango Apples. Yes! Apples is a woman-owned, sustainably driven business that works with family farms all over New York state to grow the best tasting, highest quality apples. Find them at Walmart and Sprouts. Transfer to a baking dish top with 1 cup of chopped pecans for crunch. Pecans are the lowest carb snack nut and highest in antioxidants per serving, even more than blueberries. I love these single serve packs for a healthy grab and go snack. You can find these varieties by Pecan Nation at Winn Dixie. Bake for 35 min at 350 F.
2-ingredient breakfast skillets
I started with a base of Fresh Cravings refrigerated salsa which you can find chilled in the produce section at Walmart and the organic at Publix – It’s made with a short list of high-quality whole food ingredients and comes in a range of heat levels and flavor varieties. Crack the eggs in, cover and cook for 5 minutes or until the eggs are set. You can even add a dollop of fresh cravings hummus for additional protein, flavor and creaminess – also available at Walmart in a range of flavors including everything bagel and honey jalapeno.
Satsuma immunity smoothie
For busy mornings, try an immunity smoothie. Starting with 2 juicy brand Satsuma mandarins which are farmed here in North Florida and South Georgia. Because they are harvested fresh and rarely stored these are only available for a few months each winter. You can find them exclusively at Publix. Add 1 small banana for creaminess, ½ cup riced cauliflower, ¼ cup plain Greek yogurt for protein and 1 cup of milk.
