4. Pour into 2 bowls

Remember that dinner that was delicious and had a tiny leftover portion? Well, it's perfect for breakfast.
This dinner into breakfast I had a little leftover beet sweet potato medley and sauted broccoli. With a quick reheat and 2 eggs it's the perfect breakfast plate.
First add a drop of coconut oil into a pan and add low heat
Reheat veggies for 1-2 mins
Add two eggs (I like to sprinkle them with fresh herbs and a little sea salt) and cool for 1 min on each side
Plate and enjoy!
Simple as that! Healthy and delicious in under 5 mins. There is always time for a great breakfast to help you kick start the day right.
Every have just a little salmon leftover?
Breakfast tacos are the way to go
1. Warm 2-3 corn tortillas in the oven at 350 degrees
2. Heat up your salmon in a pan with a little coconut oil and two eggs. Add cilantro and jalapeno if you have them.
3. Scramble it all up
4. Serve into your tortillas - add salsa or hot sauce as you wish and voila - breakfast from your dinner and it takes only a few minutes (about 5 to be precise)!

10 raw cashews
1 teaspoon of raw unsweetened cocoa nibs
6-8 oz of almond milk
Blend the almond milk, banana, cocoa nibs, cashews, and coconut on medium for 1 min
Add in the berries and acai and blend for 1 more minute

I talk a lot about the value of eating only naturally occurring sugars so I want to offer a few tips because getting off added sugar cold turkey can be easier with some replacements.
Stevia is a great option because it doesn't spike the blood sugar at all and is all natural and very sweet. Just a tiny drop goes a long long way.
Another wonderful option is raw honey. It will spike the blood sugar a bit but it offers the body lots of digestive enzymes and is great for taming allergies.
Either are lovely in coffee and teas and can be used for baking, smoothies and other yummies like chia seed pudding (one of my personal favorites).
Here's that recipe in case you want to give it a shot. It's perfect for breakfast or dessert.
1 Part chia seeds
3 Parts almond or coconut milk
Combine the chia seeds and almond milk in a large tubberware, stir and place in the fridge for a few hours to let the seeds absorb the liquid. When you're ready to eat, serve a portion in a bowl, add some sliced banana, dash on some cinnamon, drizzle a little honey on top and enjoy!
*I love to add blackberries and pistachios ~ feel free to improvise.
