These breakfast recipes I'm about to share will answer most common “breakfast queries” below...
What makes a good healthy breakfast?
What is the best thing to eat for breakfast?
What is the healthiest fast food breakfast?
First of all, breakfast essentially means “break fast” so it really doesn’t have to mean it has to be taken in the A.M.. Yes, most people probably break fast right after they rise. But to some who practice intermittent fasting (for more detailed explanation on intermittent fasting) for example, may only break their fast at 12pm. Not to rattle on too much about the term breakfast, and that's okay. That's their breakfast! I just wanted to get that in due to many misconception about breakfast being the most important meal of the day. It is important, but breakfast doesn't necessarily mean it has to be taken before 12pm, it just means the first meal of the day! 😊
Breakfast recipes are aplenty. But, I would like to share with you today recipes that are quick and low-glycemic (think sprouted bread, rolled oats, berries, cinnamon) at the same time, making them ideal for busy people out there to manage blood sugar level, reduce possibility of cravings throughout the day, and to basically set your day up for a productive one.
“I’ve repeated many of the same ingredients, making it easy for you to switch it up and spice up your breakfast everyday!”
