Breakfast Recipes

Easy Recipes to shake up your breakfast routine

Breakfast seems to be the forgotten meal when it comes to recipes. Typically we are all feeling rushed and grabbing whatever we can get our hands on to get out the door in the morning.

Real talk though, I love breakfast. Probably more than most people. I could live on breakfast foods. I put a lot of thought into what I eat each morning. I actually think about it before I go to bed at night.

My kids, however, prefer to eat the same exact thing every morning (you can find the recipe for that delicious oatmeal below). And my dear husband skips breakfast all together. Clearly, they are seriously missing out on some delicious fare.

While I try to throw in some smoothie recipes on a regular basis because I feel like I can really throw in a lot of vegetables and share them with my kids. And they also REALLY aid in digestion, which is great. But, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t wake up wanting something a bit more substantial to go with my morning coffee.

Here are a few of my favorite breakfasts lately. Seriously, that grapefruit parfait is amazing and I could bathe in it.
