Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Keep it interesting, delicious and fueling with these simple recipes:

Italian Poached egg: Add a small amount of oil to a skillet pan, or use a nonstick spray. Add 1/4 cup yellow onion, thinly sliced and a pinch of red pepper flakes. Saute for a few minutes, until onion starts to cook down. Add 1/4-1/3 cup spaghetti sauce, crack an egg and add in pan on top of onion and spaghetti sauce. Cook skillet pan with a lid, cook for about 5-7 minutes. Serve with whole wheat toast, pita pocket or enjoy with 1 cup fruit!

Texas scrambled eggs: In a small skillet pan, spray with nonstick spray or use a bit of oil. Saute 1/8 jalapeno pepper, diced and seeds removed, 1/4 cup bell peppers, diced, 2-3 Tbsp. onions and 1/2 tomato, diced. Once vegetables are slightly cooked down, add 2 beaten eggs or 4 egg whites, and scramble. Serve with chopped cilantro and salsa. Serve with corn tortilla.

Bell pepper egg ring: Spray skillet pan with nonstick spray. Slice a large bell pepper ring and place in skillet. Crack a whole egg into the large bell pepper, allow to cook 1-2 minutes and flip. Cook until egg yolk is cooked to your likeness.

  • Enjoy with a corn tortilla, or a slice of whole wheat toast or 1/2 cup brown rice.

Blueberry and Almond Muesli 

1/2 cup dry oats

1/2 cup milk (soy, almond or fat free milk)

1/2 cup blueberries

2 Tbsp. roasted almonds

Combine all dry ingredients. Pour milk over oat mixture and allow to sit for 10-15 minutes or soak overnight. Enjoy!

Carrot Cake Oatmeal

Makes 6 servings

  • 2 1/4 cups dry oats
  • 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded carrots
  • 2 1/2 cups milk (any variety)
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup or agave
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 tsp. grated ginger or 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375F and lightly grease a 10-cup/2.5 qt. casserole dish. I used an 8″ x 11″ rectangular casserole dish.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the rolled oats, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients: shredded carrot, milk, maple syrup, vanilla, and fresh ginger.
  4. Add the wet mixture to dry mixture and stir until combined.
  5. Pour mixture into prepared dish and smooth out with a spoon. Press down on the oatmeal with a spoon (or your hands) so the oats sink into the milk. Sprinkle on the walnuts and raisins and press down lightly again.
  6. Bake, uncovered, for 32-37 minutes (I baked for 35 mins.) until lightly golden along edge. The oatmeal will still look a bit soft or wet in some spots when it comes out of the oven, but it will firm up as it cools.

Banana Breakfast Cookies

* Makes about 8 cookies (2 cookies per serving)

Preheat oven to 350. Pulse 1 cup dry oats in food processor until they resemble a coarse flour. Combine flour with 1/2 cup dry oats, 1 beaten egg, 3/4 cup milk, 1 ripe mashed banana, 1/2 cup raisins, 2 Tbsp. wheat germ or ground flax seeds, 2 Tbsp. chopped walnuts, 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1 tsp. honey, and dash of salt.

Place batter on cooking sheet and bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. Enjoy with 1 cup fruit or small size fruit.
