Do you like beets? No? Even just a little? If you’re a beet-doubter then I dare you to try this hearty, earthy, eggy breakfast. I have it almost every day nowadays, especially if I’ve worked out in the morning, and I’ve posted it on my Instagram a few times. Several people have asked for the recipe after seeing my (scrumptious, decadent, purple) creation on social media. So here we go.
I love this warm breakfast treat. It’s great for the winter weather. And it’s vegan!
One of my go-to easy meals (a great breakfast, but also a fantastic hearty lunch). If you’re not a fan of spicy foods (Blasphemy!), you can load this up with cheese or simple spices.
When we took up rowing, my friend Sue and I would often have a small bite to eat before practice (at the crack of dawn), and then a larger breakfast when we returned to refuel. “Power Breakfast,” as we affectionately termed it, is a protein-packed meal that goes great with a coffee, an orange juice, and the drive to GO HARD. Inspired by my friend Ally’s taste for yogurt with eggs and my own love affair with sauteed greens, I give you The Breakfast of Champions.
I took my friend’s market share this week while she’s away, and wondered what to do with the two smallest plums I have ever seen in my life (see picture). When I got home they had become mushy, so I decided to make a jam with them. I also used a peach (well, they told me it was a peach, but it looks suspiciously like a nectarine…) that had gone mealy–my least favorite thing about fruit. I had to put the jam on something, so I made some gluten-free oatcakes, too. I had everything this morning for breakfast. Yay breakfast!
This super breakfast smoothie is one of my favorite grab-and-go foods. Good and good for you!
