My Top 3 Go-To Breakfast Recipes November 28 2016, 0 Comments

I'm all about incorporating a healthier diet into my lifestyle aside from having to exercise. I love food more than I love to exercise! (was that too obvious?) Since young, I was never too picky about the food that I eat. But, as I grew older, my food choices were different and I would always choose to eat at a fast food joint than to actually cook up something at home. That itself made me put on weight faster than you can say "ew" to vegetables.

When I was about 16, I then only realized how bad my eating habits were and how badly I wanted to have a better physique. I figured that it was time to switch out my bad eating habits and start eating healthier. With that, I am going to share with you some of my favorite breakfast recipes. They're healthy and really easy to make!

1. Healthy Oat Bowl.

What you'll need:

1/3 cup Organic rolled oats, 2/3 cup Water/Milk, Nuts, Fruits/Berries, Chia seeds, Flaxseeds.

What you'll need to do:

Add your oats and your water/milk together in a bowl. Then, microwave the oats for a minute and 30 seconds. Lastly, add all the other ingredients into your bowl and enjoy!

Note* For every cup of oats you have, add 2x the amount for your liquid. This is based off my own preference so can try it out first then play around with the measurements the next time you make a bowl until you reach your preferred consistency. Also, it will be better if all your ingredients are organic. (*Make sure they are certified organic since some companies are allowed to state that their products are organic even if they aren't)

Oats are a wonderful source of fiber and that also goes to chia seeds and flaxseeds. Fruits and berries are high in antioxidants which can aid in anti-aging. Try this out for yourself!

2. Kimchi Scrambled Eggs.

What you'll need: Kimchi (store bought/homemade), 2 small eggs/1 large egg

What you'll need to do:  

In a small to medium bowl, crack and whisk your eggs until it's mix well. Next, you can either add your kimchi into your egg mix and cook them together or stir fry your kimchi for a few seconds before adding in your egg mixture.

This is one of my all-time favorite go-to's for breakfast. It's really easy and super yummy! Kimchi is rich in probiotics which are really good for your digestive system.You can also find probiotics in your yogurts or cultured milk drinks. On the other hand, eggs are packed with proteins plus who doesn't like eggs?

3. Peanut Butter and Tuna Sandwich

What you'll need: Canned tuna (preferably with olive oil/fresh water), nut butter, whole grain bread

What you'll need to do:  

Take 2 slices of whole grain bread and spread a nut butter of your choice on one slice and spread the tuna on the other slice. Then, toast both of them in an oven toaster and enjoy!

On my lazy days, I would always reach out for this recipe. Tuna is rich in omega-3 fatty acids which aid in cholesterol levels. It is also high in vitamins such as Vitamin A, Vitamin B12, Niacin and minerals such as Selenium, Phosphorus, and Magnesium. As I've stated above, your bread should be whole grain and the reason being that whole grain bread are packed with fiber compared to white bread which is made of refined flour and is higher in carbs instead. Also, peanut butter can be a good source of proteins.
