30 DAY BREAKFAST CHALLENGE

(Right click the image and see "Open image image in new tab" to zoom in to see recipes)

Maybe eating chocolate cereal or pop-tarts every morning isn't the greatest idea? But eating healthy can still be eating delicious! Breakfast is an essential meal of your day. These are quick and easy recipes for breakfast that are healthy too! Hopefully this 30 Day challenge will get you in the habit of eating varied healthy foods for breakfast and hopefully you will discover some recipes that you really love!

If you are seed cycling (Find out more about seed cycling here- https://loveleafco.com/blog/seed-cycling-for-horm... ) then add your seeds into each of these recipes! If you are vegan or doing dairy-free, use a nut based milk or soy milk / yogurt instead. There are plenty of "dairy free dairies" out there.

Some FACTS:

Sugar provides energy for the body (1 gram of sugar provides 4 kilocalories). In the form of glucose, sugar serves as an immediate energy source for the brain. It's getting too much that can be bad. You probably shouldn't eat cake for breakfast all the time. But don't worry about adding a spoonful of brown sugar to your oatmeal or a drizzle of honey on your toast in the morning!

Fruit are important sources of many nutrients, including potassium, fiber, and vitamin C.

Healthy fats are necessary for good health. They help reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke by lowering the 'bad' (LDL) cholesterol in your blood. (Avocados, nuts, seeds, nut butters, coconuts, olives...)
