As Seen On WTNH: Breakfast Ideas For Busy Mornings


This morning I was up and out early! By 6:45am I was in the studio at WTNH setting up for a segment on Good Morning CT Weekend. At that early hour, it was appropriate that host Stephanie Simoni and I were scheduled to chat about breakfast ideas for busy mornings.

I may not be a morning person, but I always eat breakfast. I think of it as fuel to start my day, so it’s important that I get going with something delicious but also healthy.

A good grab-n-go idea: Egg Muffins. They are protein packed and easy to customize it with whatever meat, veggies and/or cheese you like. The best part is that you can make a few dozen ahead of time, then in the morning all you need to do is give them a quick reheat and off you go. To make a dozen full-sized egg muffins use about 10 eggs, or to whip up a dozen mini ones use 8 eggs.

Of course, I had to talk about smoothies and smoothie bowls. I brought along a Chocolate Avocado Smoothie Bowl that I’ve dubbed “breakfast pudding.” After all, who wouldn’t want “pudding” for breakfast? All you need to do is toss a frozen banana, avocado, and some chocolate almond milk into a blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Then, the fun part is that you can top it any way you like. I love toppings like berries, nuts/seeds/hemp hearts, and flaked coconut.

Another great go-to recipe, that sounds like dessert but is still healthy enough for breakfast, is my recipe for an Apple Pie Smoothie.

Or, make a batch of Three Seed Granola ahead of time, then in the morning top a scoop of greek yogurt with it.

Whether you’re just trying to get yourself out of the house in the morning or your entire family, I hope these ideas help get your day started on a healthy note.

I very big thank you to WTNH and Good Morning CT Weekend for having me on the show. I will be sure to share the segment as soon as it’s posted online.

Have questions or want to share your healthy breakfast ideas, let me know in the comments.
