Posted on 05/12/22

Join us every other Tuesday on Facebook Live for Back to Basics Health & Wellness webinars with Coach SheriAnne.

On Tuesday, May 10, Coach SheriAnne discussed five of her go-to healthy breakfasts -- the recipes for which are below:

Fruit and Yogurt/Cottage Cheese Bowl

Yogurt & Granola.jpg
  • 3/4 cup of Greek Yogurt (can add a little honey or preferred sweetener to sweeten)
  • 3/4 cup of Cottage Cheese (I do full fat)
  • Handful of Blueberries, Raspberries, Sliced Strawberries, and a full Kiwi (you can use any berries, I strongly recommend berries for their antioxidants (using frozen is fine)
  • Sprinkle 1/4 cup of grain free granola on top.

    Power Bowl - Vegetarian option

    Lentil & Grain Bowl.jpg
    • 3/4 cup of lentil & grain mixture
    • Surrounded by a mixture of veggies, I used heirloom tomatoes, 1/2 avocado, mixed greens, and carrots.  Focus on different colors. Topped with an olive oil vinaigrette.

      Avocado Toast

      • Start with a slice of Hearty Grain Bread, I use either Ezekial or Dave's Killer Seed Bread. Lightly toast it.
      • Mash half to a full avocado with salt, pepper, and garlic, then spread on the toast. Top with arugula or mixed green.
      • Then top that with 1 (or 2) sunny side up egg(s) 

        Egg Bites

        • You can make these ahead as they are easy to reheat.
        • I mix 8 eggs, a handful of shredded cheese, half a bell pepper finely chopped, 4 pieces of bacon cooked crisp to crumble into bacon bits.
        • Spray your mini muffin pan with Olive Oil.
        • Preheat oven 400 degrees and cook for 10-12min.
        • This yields 24 Egg Bites (3 egg bites is 1 egg)

          Overnight Oats

          • 1/2 cup oats (I prefer Steel Cut but you can use Old Fashion)
          • 1/2 cup milk of choice
          • 1 Tbsp of Chia seeds
          • 1 Tbsp choice of sweetener (I use agave syrup, can use honey, maple syrup)
          • Mix overnight in a pint mason jar
          • The next morning you can add whatever toppings you'd like. I add frozen berries and slivered almonds or sliced apples and peanut butter.
