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.
1) Stewed Apples and Almond Butter
- 1/2 cup water
- 6 granny smith apples
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 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).
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!
3) Superfood Banana Pancakes
- love this go-to with a side of green juice.
- 2 medium ripe banana.
- 2 medium eggs.
- ghee or coconut oil, for the pan.
- 2-3 tablespoons almond meal.
- 1 tablespoon cocoa powder or protein powder.
- ¼ teaspoon vanilla.
- ¼ cup chocolate chips or fresh blueberries
- pinch of cinnamon
- ½ tsp. astragalus
