Breakfast Scramble

A satisfying, dense dish reminiscent of scrambled eggs.  The more veggies you add, the lighter it becomes.

Oat-So-Sweet Potato Bake (or Yams)

This sweet and filling savory breakfast is novel but comforting. You can bake a dish on Sunday and have it for breakfast during the week - it stores for up to a week! If can be made gluten-free if you use gluten-free oats, and it's interchangeable (and also just as sweet!) with yams.

Morning Brown Rice Bowl

 

Morning porridge does not have to be oatmeal!  Other grains offer nutritional and taste variety.  Get in the habit of making a big pot of brown rice and use some, freeze some and keep in the fridge up to 4 days for leftovers!

Cook brown rice until very soft, or use leftover brown rice. 

Don't forget to top with fruit!

Breakfast Smoothie

This is a great tool to pack in vegetables and fruits and thus antioxidants and nutrients.  Please note that overall, we are meant to chew our food, allowing enzymes in the mouth to start breaking down carbohydrates, and exercise needed facial muscles.  Souse this gem-of-a-recipe mindfully, and not everyday.

Further, because the blender breaks down fiber, carbohydrate enters the blood stream rapidly, which may not be good for those with metabolic syndrome, glucose or insulin sensitivity, overweight or obesity, or vascular disease.  

Quinoa with Compote

 
A lovely alternative to oatmeal.  Quinoa is a gluten-free grain with a great nutritional profile!

Quick and Easy Oatmeal

Get this recipe down and use it every week!
Use thick rolled oats, or regular.  The compromised fiber in instant allows for the breakdown and absorption of carbohydrate too quickly into sugar and can spike blood sugar or insulin levels.

Raspberry Vinaigrette

This dressing is delicious over a fruity breakfast salad, such as a bed of mesclun greens topped with strawberries and pecans.

Fats - Clearing Up the Confusion

PLANT-BASED PRACTICE:  Find your fat in food – whole, plant food.   Eating a variety of whole food coming from all the different parts of the plant will provide all the fat needed in the right amounts.  From the bottom up this includes root vegetables, green stems and leaves, colorful vegetables and fruits, whole grains and seeds, and legumes – the things in pods.  Oil is not a whole food and the body has no need for it; all the fat that is needed can be found in the unprocessed food
