Finding Healthy New Recipes

I am all about breakfast. It has always unfathomable to me that some people do not eat breakfast. I couldn’t do it, I don’t know how they live without morning fuel.

My breakfast sets the tone for the whole day so I try to make sure that it is healthy and filling. I used to eat Greek yogurt with fresh berries for breakfast every morning, but the yogurt started to upset my stomach so I switched to my old favorite of oatmeal.

In my morning oatmeal I have half a cup of oats, a tablespoon of almond butter, and

 

then some fresh fruit on top. I like to have strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries, but I’ve seen some people add apple, peach, or pear and that is a hit too. While I love my oatmeal, I am starting to get a little sick of it and want to try something new.

That is when I stumbled on the recipe for these egg nests, they are basically egg muffins with veggies. I first saw a tutorial on Instagram on Inspiralized that gave me the idea to look for Zoodle Egg Muffin recipes that I could complete in my own kitchen.

I found this recipe that I cannot wait to try this weekend. I love that these little muffins pack in protein and veggies, which is often missing from my morning routine. I can’t wait to have these for breakfast with a side of delicious fruit.

Five Foods I Can’t Go a Day Without

Oatmeal

I am obsessed with oatmeal.  I might be the only person in the world who craves oatmeal.  I adore it.  It is the perfect meal or the perfect snack and I can’t go a day without it.  I alternate between oatmeal and one egg over easy for breakfast every morning.

But, oatmeal is my true love.  My favorites include banana cinnamon oatmeal and blueberry cinnamon oatmeal.  I also like to throw in crushed almonds for some extra texture.

 

Almonds

Almonds are my go-to snack during the day.  If I’m running to class or need a little pick-me-up before dinner or before I hit the gym they are the perfect treat.  I keep a bag in my closet at all times.

 

Apples

I love green apples.  There is nothing better than biting into a nice crisp and tart green apple when I’m craving something sweet.  I love them because I can eat them on the go and I never feel guilty about enjoying such a healthy treat.

 

Greek Yogurt

Greek yogurt is one of my favorite things to eat for lunch.  I love to buy plain, nonfat greek yogurt and load it up with all of my favorite berries.  Blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, and blackberries are my favorite toppers.  It is the perfect blend between sweet and bitter.

 

Bananas

Bananas are one of my favorite foods to eat after I workout or if I need a little something to keep me going.  I also love to eat one at the end of dinner just to get the little bit of sugar I’m craving.
