Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but it can get old—fast. And we want to make sure that the food we are eating is guaranteed to help us successfully get through the day. We asked members of The WELL (our experts from EVEN Hotels’ Advisory Board) about their at-home breakfast of choice to get some inspiration. Check out their picks below!
“As a new mom, I’m pretty sleep-deprived, but I also want to avoid excess caffeine! It’s especially important that I stick to foods that give me a boost and avoid those that would sap my energy. My breakfast is usually a mix of high protein with fiber—like 2 hard-boiled eggs, some Greek yogurt and fruit. Interested but pressed for time? Boil 6 eggs on the weekend, leave them in their shell and mark them with a sharpie. When it’s morning time, remove the shell, slice them and the yolk (so it doesn’t explode!) and microwave for about 20-30 seconds.”
“I enjoy kale and eggs with pumpkin seeds and a dash of turmeric and black pepper. I’ve been experimenting with combinations of my favorite nutrient-dense foods that are key for brain health. Eggs have protein plus lots of B-vitamins, kale adds in vitamins A, C, K, plus phytonutrient antioxidants and pumpkin seeds are packed with minerals. Turmeric also stimulates a hormone that helps protect the brain.”
“Back in the day, breakfast was a shot of espresso (which I still love). But now I lean toward whole grains and veggies to get me off to a balanced start. My favorite is millet porridge with squash and tofu. I also add a side of steamed kale. It’s a sweet, satisfying and nourishing way to begin the day. It’s so good, I could eat it every day!”
“When I’m at home and have time to play around in the kitchen, I love to make mini vegetable frittatas with my muffin tin. I basically chop up whatever veggies I have in the fridge, mix them up with a combo of eggs and egg whites, add all sorts of seasonings, distribute them evenly in my muffin pan and pop them in the oven. They’re filling, adorable and the whole family loves them!”
