Warming Winter Breakfasts

 

If you're anything like me you're probably having a hard time getting excited by your morning smoothie or breakfast bowl during this chilly weather. Not wanting to freeze, and still needing to eat, I've started to get creative with a few go-to warm and quick winter weather breakfast options.

 

 

Stewed Apples and Almond Butter

1)     Stewed Apples and Almond Butter 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 6 granny smith apples
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon 

 

Directions:

  • Peel and chop apples into small, fairly uniform pieces. Turn the skillet onto medium-low heat and add water. Add apples and cinnamon to taste, stirring and cooking until apples are softened, about 6-10 minutes. If all of the water evaporates, add a little more water as the apples cook.
  • Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

 

Once drained put back in warm pot and drizzle almond butter over top the apples. I like to put the lid on and leave it for a minute or two so the almond butter gets nice and warm. Add to a bowl and top with your favorite superfoods (chia seeds, goji berries, cinnamon, bee pollen etc). 

 

Sauteed Turmeric Veggies


2) Sautéed Turmeric Veggies 

- Chop up your favorite veggies (peppers, mushrooms, zucchini, onions) and add them to a warm pan of coconut oil. Sautee for a few minutes. Sprinkle on 1/4 teaspoon of Turmeric Powder. Add a handful of fresh spinach for the last minute of cooking. 

For those of you who eat eggs feel free to add one of those!

 

 

  

Superfood Banana Pancakes

- love this go-to with a side of green juice. 

 

Ingredients:

  1. 2 medium ripe banana.
  2. 2 medium eggs.
  3. ghee or coconut oil, for the pan.

  1. 2-3 tablespoons almond meal.
