We’ve all heard the importance of having breakfast every morning, but having a delicious, healthy breakfast for Better Breakfast Month, too? That might seem impractical or time-consuming for the lot of us who set the alarm an hour before our departure time but roll out of bed 15 minutes before that. But a little effort and time into putting something together at the beginning of the day can do wonders for your body and mind– not just for the rest of the day, but for days and weeks to come. Think about this:
While you might not be able to roll out cooked eggs with brussels sprout hash like a pro (though you’ll know how by the end of this article), just feeding yourself something wholesome and healthy (sorry, Lucky Charms) can do wonders for your health. Staring at a bowl of cereal might not be enough to get your attention, so here’s a few fun and quirky breakfast ideas to start off the day with a smile!
Oui, oui! The French Toast Bread Stamper takes something boring like sliced bread and creates a tasty masterpiece! The toast stamp works on all bread slices and imprints a French icon for you to butter up or smother with syrup. Your choice.
Bring literal love to a morning meal with a Heart Egg Shaper. The Teflon tool cooks eggs to affection, but it also works with pancakes, cookies, and other baked goods! (Sorry, no cookies for breakfast!)
If you’re more of a coffee person in the morning, try Blast Off! Espresso Cups. That caffeine jolt you crave and the smoke that comes out of your eyes after you take a gulp? Yea, this pair of espresso cups is the vessel that brings it all together.
But even coffee is not enough to get you going in the morning; your body needs food! Good food, preferably! Here’s a few easy breakfast recipes you might consider making if you can get up early enough or can make the night before and simply zap to warmth in the morning!
One of my personal favorites! Baked Gruyere and Sausage Omelet sounds mighty fancy, but we wouldn’t ask you to make something that’s suited for celebrity chefs, now would we? Smoky Gruyere cheese mixes with eggs, parsley, red bell pepper, and turkey sausage. All the ingredients are popped in the oven and come out with crusty perfection (an oxymoron, yes?).
Similar to the above breakfast recipe, Chard and Chorizo Frittata cooks in an oven but with more of a spicy kick. The Spanish chorizo offers a bit more heat while it cooks with eggs, chard, hash browns, and Parmesan cheese. Don’t forget your cast iron skillet for this one!
Another personal favorite! Brussels Sprout and Potato Hash might not sound so appetizing when you recall memories of having to be force-fed brussels sprouts. But their nuttiness along with frozen hash browns and a little onion and spices creates a hash that’s more complex than the few ingredients might suggest. Top with an egg cooked in simmering water to help keep calories in check!
Whether you choose to have a big healthy breakfast or just peanut butter on toast that’s stamped with an Eiffel Tower, Better Breakfast Month reminds us all that how we start our day is a good indicator of how the rest of our day will play out. So it makes sense to spend a little time setting up good karma for ourselves, yes? Thought so. Tell us about your easy, peasy breakfast ideas and recipes!
