First things first, we have a very exciting announcement to make. Over the past week, we’ve been working on our first ever collab with 2 amazing girls, and the product is finally here. In their post, they talk all about summer essentials, so if your looking for some activities/products to go along with your breakfast ideas, make sure to head over there.
Summer Essentials: https://letsjusttalkabouteverything.wordpress.com
To launch right into the post, I agree wholeheartedly with the saying that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Eating healthy and staying fit is something that is incredibly important to both of us, and eating a good breakfast is such an great way to start the day off. I’ve found that if I start feeling healthy and happy about what I’m putting into my body, the day tends to follow in this healthy and happy direction, and I minimize my snacking habits, as well as cravings for junk food.
That being said, we all live very busy lives, and take it from someone who literally wakes up at the last possible second, it’s not always easy to cook something nutritious in the 5 minutes between when you get out of bed and have to run out the door. Don’t worry though, we got you.
Recipe #1: Yogurt Bowl
Yogurt of choice (I usually go with plain, but you really can’t go wrong)
Toppings of choice, of which mine are:
Agave, honey, or maple syrup drizzle
Fruit of choice
Now you’re probably thinking that you already know what yogurt is, and that this isn’t the most original, nor helpful idea. However, while I’m sure you’ve had yogurt, and you probably even have yogurt bowls from time to time, I doubt that you’ve experienced this particular combination of toppings on your yogurt bowl. This is such a huge personal favorite of mine (like I have it every other day favorite of mine) and if you decide to make this and experience the magic for yourself, make sure to let us know what you thought.
Recipe #2: Overnight Oats
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup coconut milk
Fresh fruit toppings
Drizzle of natural sweetener (agave, honey, or maple syrup)
1 tsp chia seeds (opt.)
Almond slices (opt.)
Coconut chips (opt.)
Pour oats and coconut milk (almond, soy, or even normal work as well) into a small mason jar.
Sprinkle chia seeds, sliced almonds, coconut chips, or whatever else your heart desires into mason jar.
Seal, and refrigerate overnight.
In the morning, put fresh fruit over oats, sprinkle with natural sweetener of choice, and enjoy 🙂
Remember a few paragraphs back when I said I eat yogurt bowls every other morning? Well, allow me to present you with the other 50% of the time. Overnight oats have been all over social media for some time, but honestly, I never really got the hype about cold oatmeal in a jar until a few weeks ago. However, in an adventurous moment and an effort to improve my diet, I gave the oats a shot. The addiction was instant. This breakfast is super healthy yet filling, and made for people who hate getting up as much as I do. I’m the first one to say that the idea of “cold oatmeal” doesn’t sound appealing, but I promise, the reality is.
Thanks so much for reading, and if you try and like any of these breakfast ideas, make sure to comment and let us know which ones. We had such a great time with this collab, and are always looking for more collab opportunities if anyone is interested. And of course, if you haven’t made it to our friends post, it’s really a can’t miss, as is the rest of their blog.
Hope to see you saturday! Cheers
