Eat Clean 2016: 5 Healthy Breakfasts

Eat Clean 2016...my every year goal lol which is often harder to achieve then I thought. I am on a train of terrible eating... I do eat healthily, but then I also eat a lot of other junk I should not. I.am.a.cookie.monster #sorryimnotsorry I LOVE cookies, I kinda feel entitled to at least one a day...but its when I add in a few chips, popcorn, or chocolate covered gummy bears as well that I feel like garbage. Who am I kidding I have also been eating a lot of bacon lately...as a once vegetarian, 2010 Alexandra is disgusted with 2016 Alexandra.

This is kinda my motto (which makes eating clean a lofty goal).



I am not trying to loose weight, but I want to feel good and be strong and healthy. I am not sure if I should do a elimination "diet" or just cut the crap out...but I already don't want to. In an effort to start on the right track I have been tracking my breakfasts to share fun recipes with you and ensure I think twice about my meals. Although my real problem is snacks...so next next I will come back to you with some fun healthy snacks *cue the pinterest searching*


Here are this week's breakfasts:

Lemon Blueberry Chia Pudding

Combine:

- 3 tbsp of chia seeds

- zest and juice of half a lemon
Stir and leave in fridge overnight. In the morning stir again and add 1/2 cup of blueberries. Can also top with nuts.

Make oatmeal as usual but before it is fully cooked stir in 1 granny smith apple, peeled and finely diced and cinnamon. Once it is done top with a little brown sugar or maple syrup, more cinnamon, and nuts.

  1. Mmm, that all looks delicious. You may need to open up a B&B. I love a good poached egg on toast with avocado. Also, toast with natural peanut butter and topped with fresh berries (blueberries, strawberries or raspberries). My fav smoothie is water, lemon juice, fresh spinach, pineapple and frozen blueberries. Blend it together and then I add a tbsp of flax.
    Also, I've been starting each day with hot water and the juice from half a lemon and it's glorious. I drink it on an empty stomach, first thing (well, after I brush my teeth). Enjoy! Gen xo
