Healthy Breakfast Recipes
You probably know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Unfortunately for most people, the morning is also the busiest time of the day. And often that means nutrition gets ignored.
But starting your day with a bowl of cereal, a donut or a sugar-laden muffin will put you on the fast track to weight gain and poor health.
The reason? Typical breakfast foods – even the so-called “healthy” ones – are little more than processed carbohydrates, unhealthy, inflammatory fats (including trans fat and omega 6 fats) and gluten. So while these grab-and-go breakfasts may satisfy your immediate need for putting something in your stomach, they will send your blood sugar and insulin levels soaring.
The result? In the short term you’re lethargic and hungry again within a short period of time after eating. But in the long run, eating like this sets the stage for poor health, obesity and chronic disease.
But there is a solution. And enjoying a healthy breakfast doesn’t have to mean spending a lot of time in the kitchen or adding more stress to your day.

With a little planning, you can enjoy nourishing breakfasts every day of the week that will power your body with superfood nutrients – including healthy fats and clean sources of protein – in the same amount of time it takes to pour a bowl of cereal or drive thru for that donut!
In fact, once you make the commitment to change your habits, you’ll find that there are plenty of options for eating a healthy meal in the morning. Try our Paleo Protein Donuts, savory Mexican Beef, Salsa & Jalapeno Cheese Breakfast Muffins or a hearty slice of protein-packed, low-carb, gluten-free Zuchhini Nut Bread for filling breakfasts that can be made ahead for the week.
Or how about freezer-friendly waffles and Paleo Buttermilk Pancakes you can pop in the toaster oven, top with grass-fed butter and organic berries… or a simple protein-packed Chocolate Almond Butter Smoothie for a healthy on-the-run breakfast.

When it comes to your health, there's probably nothing WORSE than a donut.
