A Healthy Breakfast Idea

Ever wonder what a healthy breakfast looks like? Looking for  healthy breakfast ideas? This is what I had for breakfast this morning.

  • A big bowl of fruit – a peach, 4-5 strawberries, 1 kiwi, a handful of raspberries,
  • A hardboiled egg
  • A latte made at home with 2 T gelatin powder & 1 tsp of real sugar (none of that fake, chemical sweetener BS).


It’s easy. It takes no cooking and little time to prepare. I already had the eggs hard boiled, so all I had to do was cut up the fruit. There’s plenty of healthy carbs, minerals and nutrients in the fruit to stimulate my thyroid and get my brain and body ready for the day, plus the anti-inflamatory protein from the gelatin powder and the egg for a little extra protein to balance the macro-nutrient ratio a bit better. Oh and I also had 1 tsp of coconut oil for a little extra power for my metabolism and thyroid.

NOTE: Those of you who have taken my Sugar Smackdown class (or anyone for that matter) — this is an example of “good” sugar. You want healthy, whole carbs NOT refined, starchy carbs. Do you see what’s missing? No grains! No bread, no muffin, no toast, no oatmeal, no cereal. No thank you!

What did you have for breakfast?

    An exemplary breakfast for an exemplary woman! Sometimes if I’m in a hurry I’ll dump the whole thing into the blender and make a shake (the eggs are raw in the egg version!) Only one tsp of sugar in your coffee? I better get out my measuring spoons! lol

    WOW !!!!! I was actually having my breakfast when I saw your email and was directed to this awesome breakfast capture of your on your blog. I am literally embarassed. I could not take another spoon of my ready to cook “upma” which is an Indian dish made of “sooji” (refined wheat). Turned out my breakfast consisted of two spoons of upma, one apple, two slices of mango and my coffee. Thanks Erin !!! you really caught me in time 🙂

    Substitute maple syrup for the sugar and it’s even healthier, and still delicious!

    I like Lisa’s version with raw eggs in smoothie and do the same thing on busy mornings. I feel Awesome and people look at me as where I got my energy from since I don’t drink coffee

    100% Grain Free and I feel so much better!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Fruit energizes and brain with clarity. Having low blood sugar, i always pair up my fruit with a protein with water shake etc… for sugar balance

    Since some time now I regulary eat my evening disch in the morning, so some brown rice, with steamed veggies, like carrots or haricot-vers. and steamed chicken breast, some fresh orange juice and later on a cup of latte.
    Tomorrow, it will be either spaghetti with pesto and seeds, orrrr a baked egg with baked tomato’s. I noticed it gives a the right amount of power and I feel less hungry troughout the day.

    Melissa, Sucrose is actually a perfect balance of glucose and fructose, making it a healthy sugar that helps to balance blood sugar very well. It’s not the devil that most people say it is (I used to believe the same thing as you probably know!). A teaspoon of organic sugar is perfectly fine and maple syrup isn’t necessarily a better alternative. I’ve learned so much about sugar since I do so much research for my Sugar Smackdown program. What’s important is not consuming too much starchy sugary junk food (especially where it’s combined with rancid vegetable oils) and not consuming too much sugar in relation to protein and carbs.
