My Fave Breakfast Recipes


You probably already know that I’m not a morning person.
Never been. Never will.
I know that the way you start your morning off sets the tone for the entire day, but I’m not one of those persons who wakes up energized, refreshed, charged up, and ready to take on the world.
I, instead, wake up feeling grumpy and grouchy. I push the snooze button at least a hundred times. Seriously.

The only thing I love about mornings is breakfast.
Breakfast may be my favorite meal to cook because there’s nothing fussy about it.
Most of the time, I start my day with a fantastic smoothie (such as my awesome Immune-Boosting Blueberry Smoothie); sometimes I just want some solid food (apple + almond butter).
But then there those time when I want breakfast to be — you know — awesome, when that happens I turn to one of these ten recipes and start my day in the most legit way possible!

1. (Paleo) Coconut Lemon Chia Seed Muffins — These are muffins with an edge that I KNOW you’re going to love!

  8. Hehe snooze is a MUST for me. I feel the same - sometimes I just want a smoothie, but other times I want it all: sweet, savory, filling!

  9. I usually start my day with a smoothie too, but I definitely agree, sometimes you need a real breakfast and that sweet potato hash in particular looks amazing!

  10. Honestly, I think that the "morning" type of people don't really exist - or they don't have a snooze button ;)
    I love breakfast, but I'm not fan of the sweet morning dishes, so my favorite recipe from your list is definitely nr. 4 Spinach and Cheddar Egg Muffins. It looks perfect...

    1. I agree with you, those who label themselves as "morning persons" are total liars. HA!

  11. So...think I'm coming over to your house for breakfast, Mike! At least on those mornings you are feeling like more than a smoothie - because this here is some good good eats!

  12. You're not a morning person, Mike? Say what? I thought you were one of those guys who wakes up at 5am and runs 14 miles every day. Crazy talk! But I definitely share your love of breakfast. I could eat breakfast for morning, noon and night...and I'd still want more. Love this roundup! #WolfpackEarlyBirdGetsTheWormClub

  14. I can say I am a morning person - I quite easily wake up even if I have a 4-5 hours sleep (like most of the times). Well, I still feel grumpy quite often though. And what a geat collection, Mike. I really need to try these sweet potato waffles. But wait. There's your favorite frittata in this list? I think it could be a great breakfast as well!

  16. Glad I'm not the only one who struggles in the morning. I keep reading blog pots about how to be a morning person and I'm gonna be honest, no matter how hard I try, it ain't happening!!
