Start Your Day with an Energizing Breakfast

January 04, 2018

While working on a stress problem, it’s important to start your day off with a nutritious, energizing breakfast.

Chronic stress increases your body’s nutritional needs and also leads to fatigue.

Here are four healthy recipes to try…

Power Smoothie Bowl with Apple Slices

A smoothie bowl takes advantage of the energizing properties of fresh fruit, and the grounding activity of whole grains and protein.

It’s the perfect breakfast food, especially if you need a break from regular smoothie drinks.

I like to make my smoothie bowls with a base of organic oatmeal, layer on my smoothie mix, and add my choice of healthy toppings.


1. Make a bowl of slightly thick, organic oatmeal.

2. Create your smoothie layer by blending:

  • 1 cup organic yogurt
  • 2 tbsp honey or agave

3. Layer a few scoops of smoothie on your oatmeal and top with:

  • peeled, organic apple slices
  • fresh berries (if desired)
  • a few pinches of cinnamon and cloves to taste
  • your favorite nuts, seeds, or granola.

Organic Eggs with Avocado and Sweet Potato Hash

This is a power meal if you like a big breakfast. Pair it with some matcha or yerba mate tea, and you’re set until lunchtime.


1. Prepare the sweet potato hash:


  • 1 cup peeled, cubed sweet potato
  • 2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup chopped onion – red or yellow
  • ¼ cup chopped bell pepper- red or green
  • 1 tbsp. minced garlic
  • A few pinches kosher salt, pepper and parsley to taste

First, add sweet potato to a saucepan of boiling, salted water. Simmer until tender, then drain and dry with paper towels. Once dry, add the sweet potato to a skillet with 2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil. Blend in chopped onion, minced garlic, bell pepper, kosher salt, pepper and parsley. Saute until slightly golden (about 8 minutes). Keep warm and set aside.

2. Next, cook 2 organic eggs over easy in a little coconut oil. Season with kosher salt and pepper to taste.

3. Top eggs with avocado slices. Serve with the sweet potato hash.

Nut Butter on Toasted, Sprouted Bread with a Side of Organic Berries

The key with this dish is using sprouted, whole grain bread and organic berries. This keeps it healthy and flavorful.



  • slices of sprouted, whole grain bread (Dave’s Killer Bread is a good choice)
  • a few tbsp. of nut butter (almond or sunflower seed are good)
  • a few drizzles of raw honey or agave
  • mixed organic berries (blueberries, blackberries, strawberries or acai berry)
  • toasted coconut flakes
  • chia seeds

Toast your bread to your desired crispiness. Spread on high quality, nut butter. Add a few drizzles of raw honey or agave. Serve open faced with a bowl of fresh, organic berries topped with toasted coconut flakes and/or chia seeds.

Savory Breakfast Rice with Beans and Veggies

This recipe follows the basic principles of a macrobiotic diet. It’s a great breakfast if you’re cleansing, recovering from illness, or want a break from typical breakfast foods.

It’s also a good choice for vegans, vegetarians, or people working on general body balance.


1. Make a blend of cooked brown rice and quinoa (about 1/4 cup of each). Season with kosher salt and pepper.

2. Top with :

  • ½ cup cooked black beans (drained and rinsed)
  • steamed vegetables of your choice
  • a little shredded kale or spinach
  • a few pinches garlic or ginger powder
  • lemon juice, tamari, or liquid aminos to taste

Garnish with sunflower or sesame seeds.
