Breakfast & Lunch Ideas

I’ve had a lot of people ask for some breakfast and lunch ideas, and understandably, as these can be more difficult meals to adjust to making out of real food. Bagels are fast, but some of these ideas are just as fast, and healthier too!

Healthy Breakfast Ideas

Homemade Energy Bars (Easy and Delicious!)

Easy Breakfast Egg Muffins

Coconut Flour Protein Waffles

Protein “Brain Power” Smoothie

Easy Oven Omelet (AKA Leftover Omelet)

Veggie and Egg Stir Fry– Just take some leftover or frozen veggies and scramble with butter. When they are cooked/hot add a few eggs and scramble. Simple and fast!

Hard Boiled Eggs with Berries and Cream– Whip some heavy cream with vanilla and dollop on berries. Serve with a couple pre-boiled eggs from the fridge.

Egg, Avocado, and Bacon Salad- (recipe to follow) Simple version: boil eggs and chop, chop an avocado, and chop some cooked bacon. Mix together and eat.

Pre-make a Quiche or Frittata– Cook some veggies/meat or use leftovers, put in the bottom of a buttered pie pan. Top with beaten eggs and shredded cheese.
