Superfood Breakfast

I'm on a quest to add more Superfoods to my diet, so I figure why not start with breakfast. Incorporating them into my 1st meal of the day gets me energized and tends to make me feel like I'm starting the day off on the right foot. We don't usually think of things like Avocado and Kale to eat for breakfast but "why not".


Adding a veggie to breakfast is a great way to meet your daily requirements of vegetables. Pack your Superfood Breakfast in to-go containers or arrange beautifully on a plate. Doesn't beautifully plated food always seem to taste better.
These are my choices for a super healthy breakfast.
  • whole raw almonds (unsalted)
  •  fresh blueberries
  •  fresh raspberries
  • small bunch fresh chopped Kale 
  • 1/4 of avocado
  • 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1/2 tbsp. Hemp seed (sprinkle on yogurt)
  • 1/2 tbsp. Chia seed  (sprinkle on yogurt)
  • 1 hard boiled egg
Here is just a small list of ideas for some additional foods that make great Superfood choices:
  • broccoli
  • spinach
  • pumpkin seeds
  • flax seed
  • walnuts
  • wild salmon
  • strawberries
  • blackberries
  • red peppers
  • tomatoes
  • dark chocolate
  • green tea
