3 of My Favorite Nutritious Breakfast Recipes

Updated: May 11, 2021


Overnight Oats


Overnight oats are an easy way to get fiber and carbs into your diet. I love oats to keep me fueled when I am on a regular exercise schedule. They keep me full and curb my sweet tooth. I like my oats mixed in with a bunch of different yummies additives



Easy Recipe

  • oats: my personal favorite gluten-free brand is Seven Sundays but you can use something as simple as steel cut oats, you can follow the recipe on the box or I just eyeballl a 1-1 ratio with a little extra dash of plant-based milk

  • milk: I prefer plant-based milk (macadamia, oat, and flax are my favorites), again just a 1-1 ratio with the oats plus a small extra dash (~2-3 tbsp extra)

  • extra flavor: vanilla extract (1 tsp)

  • mix and let sit in a container in the refrigerator over night, add toppings in the morning


Additional Toppings

  • chia seeds/chia seed pudding (see recipe below)

  • plant-based yogurt

  • gluten free granola

  • flax seed

  • dried coconut

  • honey, stevia, or maple syrup sweetener

  • sunflower seeds or other seeds/nuts

  • nut butter

  • fresh berries

  • dried goji berries

  • cacao nibs

  • cinnamon




Chia Seed Pudding


I love chia seed pudding! It is so easy to make, high in fiber, yummy, and overall really good for you! I love to make a bunch of it all at once for about 3-4 servings throughout the week. If the consistency becomes too thick or thin throughout the week, you can always adjust it.



Easy Recipe

  • chia seeds: make sure to buy organic, a good rule of thumb is for every 2 tbsp of chia seeds add a half cup of milk

  • milk: I prefer plant-based milk (macadamia, oat, and flax are my favorites), again just add half a cup of milk for every 2 tbsp of chia seeds

  • extra flavor: consider mixing in one of the following: matcha powder, vanilla extract, cinnamon, honey, nutmeg

  • mix and let sit in a container in the refrigerator over night, add toppings in the morning


Additional Toppings

  • chia seeds/chia seed pudding (see recipe below)

  • pumpkin puree

  • plant-based yogurt

  • gluten free granola

  • flax seed

  • dried coconut

  • honey, stevia, or maple syrup sweetener

  • sunflower seeds or other seeds/nuts

  • nut butter

  • fresh berries

  • dried goji berries

  • cacao nibs

  • cinnamon



Easy Egg Frittata


This recipe is great if you’re more of a savory morning breakfast person. I again like to make more than just 1 serving at a time so that I don’t have to prepare something daily. This easy recipe is filling and high in protein!


Easy Recipe

  • preheat oven to 400 degrees

  • eggs: a good rule of thumb is 2 eggs for every 1/2 cup of vegetables, I like to use 8-10 eggs and fill a baking dish that can make 6-8 servings, whisk eggs until they are fluffy

  • chop up vegetables: my go-to vegetables are broccoli, green onions, asparagus, spinach, onions, garlic, mushrooms

  • sauté vegetables: the length of time sautéing depends on the vegetable (green onions and chickpeas do not need to be sautéd) but anywhere from 5-10 minutes

  • side note: I am extra lazy and actually don’t sauté ANY of my vegetables and it still tastes great to me!

  • pour vegetables into greased or non-stick baking dish, disperse evenly, pour whisked eggs over veggies and gently shake dish until all ingredients are dispersed evenly

  • add spices: I keep mine real simple, adding just a big 3-finger pinch of himalayan sea salt, pepper, and sometimes cumin or red chili flakes

  • bake for 15-25 minutes (depending on how many eggs you use) or until top is golden brown

  • top with cheese or green onions


Additional Ingredients and Toppings

  • cheese

  • nut cheese

  • cilantro

  • green onions

  • chick peas

  • bell peppers

  • avocado

  • tomatoes

  • plant based sour cream
