Better Breakfast Month Recipes

September is Better Breakfast Month and to celebrate, we share all sorts of breakfast recipes for you to enjoy. There’s been a lot of talk lately about breakfast, and if it is still the most important meal of the day. The recent study I saw leads me to believe that more research is necessary.

To keep up with the times, I pack my breakfast every day and take a break at about 11 am and eat at that time.

In one of the more comprehensive studies to date, it’s recently been proven that eggs (yolks) are not the best choice for breakfast. In this recent study, it is believed that egg yolks raise cholesterol and increase chances for heart disease. So we’ll limit eggs to one per serving, if-at-all for now. Until the next study.

What to drink for breakfast

Let’s start with an iced latte for a change of scenery. This recipe is so simple but just beautiful. I find that in the summer months this is all I need to get my day started.

Iced Latte

This Iced Latte is delicious. I swapped out dairy milk and you wouldn't know. The transition away from dairy milk with plant-based milk has not been a difficult transition over here.

Without honeybees, there would be far fewer greens, use as many as you wish to make this drink better and better with each addition. You can AVOID sugar-y fruits in this smoothie altogether.

To be honest, I wasn’t always a fan of oatmeal. This changed by the time I was an adult, and now I can’t get enough of the stuff! I wouldn’t exactly call this recipe “oatmeal,” since it’s a blend of several grains. That’s why we call this Power Porridge. It’s packed with so many heart-healthy ingredients, and it keeps you full all morning until lunch.
