I hope your new year is off to a fantabulous start. Shortly after sending out last week’s New Year’s Intentions blog, I received an email from Candace in our Vibrant Living Community, and she wrote: Thank you for your email on intentions, it helps me shape my thinking for these first few days of the new year. Here’s a question: I would love to know what you consider some great breakfast options.” This is a great question. Before we explore it, an important red-hot reminder:

Candace asked about breakfast and I’m going to provide a summary answer in two parts:

1. What are 5 healthy breakfast options, that take 7 minutes or less to prepare?

  • Eggs, any way. Great on sliced avocado. Hard-boiled makes an easy grab-n-go breakfast.
  • Oatmeal. Choose unflavored and then add your own flavor and nutrition with nuts, coconut flakes, butter or coconut oil, a sprinkle of dried fruit or sliced banana, and a drizzle of maple syrup or honey.
  • Coconut yogurt. Unflavored, and add frozen blueberries and chopped pecans or almonds.
  • Avocado toast. Use a nutrient-dense bread like Food for Life’s Ezekiel or Julian Bakery Paleo Bread, toast it, and slather with mashed avocado.
  • Mixed nuts and an apple. This is my go-to “running late” breakfast. I pre-package 1/4 cup of mixed raw nuts (I love pistachios, macadamia, walnuts and pecans combined) in plastic snack bags. I can literally grab one, along with an apple, as I head out the door to eat in my car.

2. Q: How do I stay consistent? A: Make it a habit.

The one and only way to create lasting change in any part of your life is through habits. I love Candace’s question because a great way to improve your health over a year is to choose one small new healthy habit at a time, and commit to it for 30-60 days. Try not to ever miss more than one day, as two consecutive days works to reverse your habit.

Be sure to set up your environment for success! If you’re going to have a health-building breakfast to start your day, you need to have the food in stock, and do any prep work necessary to streamline your morning. So maybe on Sunday you bag nuts and hard boil some eggs, for our breakfast examples above.

And remember, if you’re ready for some healthy-habit boot camp and a new lease on your health to start your year, you’ve still got 24-ish hours to sign up for my 21-Day Cleanse Program!
