Eat well

Live well

Welcome to my recipe page!  These are some of my favorite breakfast recipes and I love sharing them because they are easy to make, healthy, and delicious.  I hope you enjoy :-)

Oatmeal is one of my absolute favorite foods and I always opt for steel cut oats over rolled oats because they have far more health benefits.  Steel cut oats are high in fiber so they help lower cholesterol and eating them regularly helps with weight loss.  They also help keep your digestive system healthy and functioning properly.  Another reason why I eat steel cut oats is because they are lower on the glycemic index. Eating a bowl of oats for breakfast helps give me energy all morning but without spiking my blood sugar levels.  Other benefits include:

  • high in protein

  • gluten free

  • good source of iron

  • more sustained energy source 

Steel cut oats are less processed than rolled oats so they take longer to cook but you can also find quick cooking steel cut oats in the supermarket and they only take 3 minutes!  My recipes use the slow cooking kind but it's always good to have the quick oats on hand just in case you are in a hurry.

I like to add nuts, berries, and honey to my oats because it tastes amazing!  But my favorite way to eat them is in this recipe.  I sometimes close my eyes while I eat these because...OMG IT TASTES JUST LIKE THE REAL THING!!!

A quick and easy breakfast that's healthy and also delicious?  Yes please!!  Eggs are the perfect healthy breakfast food in my opinion because they are high in protein, vitamins, minerals, omega 3's, and are healthy for our brain, eyes, bones, hair, and nails.  They also help prevent breast cancer and promote weight loss.

But eating breakfast is hard for many people because, like me, they don't have time to cook in the morning.  Too often, we skip breakfast and tend to run out of energy during the day, then are more likely to overeat at lunch time.  This recipe will save your life!  It only takes about 40 minutes to prep a big batch and you just cut into nice pretty squares, and then just grab and go in the morning.  I have also tried cooking them in muffin tins because it cuts the baking time down a bit and then you have these cute little egg muffins which are already portioned.  Either way is fine, just be sure to use a non-stick pan and use cooking spray.  Enjoy :-)
