Now that we are all “Stuck” at home, It’s more important than ever to stay healthy. An easy healthy breakfast is just what you need to give you energy for the day to come and keep your wondering eyes out of the pantry. I know we’ve all seen the memes – ” We’re saving the world by staying home and eating Cheetos in our pajamas – Don’t screw it up!” and the hashtags #Quarantine15 (Like the #Freshman15… you get it).
We officially have access to snacks 24/7 !! and the best way to get through this, is to keep our fridge and pantry stocked with healthy food and healthy snacks. Granted, that is not always easy when you have kids in the house, of any age really, and I have a weak chocolate moment once in a while as well.
But if you start the day with a filling, easy, healthy breakfast, you might not feel the need to snack until lunch. According to WebMD, breakfast really is the most important meal of the day – it kicks starts your metabolism and help you burn calories through out the day.So one step at a time folks. I actually have several go to breakfasts that I absolutely love, one I posted a while ago about my Oatmeal Bowls which I’ll update soon, another is this little magical breakfast combination!
2 Eggs sunny side up
1 Avocado chopped with a sprinkle of salt &pepper
1 Bagel (Any savory or plain – this one was spinach), lightly covered with a dairy free butter spread
Smoked Salmon, enough to cover the bagel
That’s all I need to hold me off till, well at least 10 O’clock! Bagel with lox and capers and cream cheese used to be my favorite breakfast, hands down. Since I went dairy free after the birth of my son, I’ve had to learn to modify my diet a little bit. So no 1/2 inch layer of cream cheese, I either don’t put anything on or lightly cover to the bagel with dairy free butter.
The ingredients it takes to put together a delicious meal, really doesn’t have to be a mile long. Just a few basic ingredients that come together to form a delicious bite and feed your body full of nutrients that will keep your energy levels up through out the day and keep your belly full of goodness and out of the snack drawer. Or in my case, a snack pantry.
