Last summer, I posted an article as a guest author on another website, listing easy breakfast ideas that you could make from real food.
Some of the points I made were that:
- You should make foods that are familiar and comforting to you. Make a list of what typically sounds good to you in the morning, no matter where you buy it.
- Almost anything “store-bought” can be made (better) at home.
- Most breakfast recipes can be made the day before — when you have more energy.
- Make a menu for breakfast, just like you probably already do for supper.
Included in this post was my recipe for Make-It-the-Night-Before Oatmeal:
Oatmeal is so easy to make with a crockpot! We have a large family, but I place 4 cups oatmeal, 8 cups filtered water, a dash of celtic sea salt, and a spoonful of yogurt into my crockpot. I bought a timer for my crockpot, so that I can program it to turn on in the middle of the night and cook on low for three hours. It shuts off at 7 am, after which I insert 1/2 cup of butter and some “fix-in’s” like sucanat, strawberries, raisins, apples, or maple syrup. We serve it with heavy cream!
I serve this oatmeal to my family several times each week, even though I personally eat fewer carbs. My own breakfast is usually an omelette (filled with fresh salsa, shredded cheddar cheese, or grilled peppers). This is a simple breakfast that gives me long-lasting energy without raising my blood sugar.
I hope this gives you a few fresh ideas for starting your day with the best nutrition.
