Healthy, Sweet & Savory Breakfast Ideas!

Hey Guys!

BREAKFAST! It’s pretty much everyone’s fave meal of the day. It gets your metabolism going first thing, fuels a.m. workouts and stabilizes your blood sugar after a night of fasting. But things can get tricky on the 28 Day Reset because most of the grab-and-go breakfasts you’re used to may not be the most nutritious options!

That’s why I just had to come up with a few new Reset-friendly ideas for you, because I hate the thought of you dreading the mornings just because breakfast has become a bit more complicated. There are two sweet and one savory, so there’s something for everyone!

Here’s the low down on what we’re making:

Healthy Eggs Benedict: Looks fancy, but it’s easy to make! I’m super excited to share my new favorite thing with you: polenta! You can buy organic tubed polenta from the grocery store and it gives you all the satisfaction of bread, but without the gluten or too many carbs. It’s SO GOOD!

Cherry Almond Pudding: It is basically a blended overnight oats recipe and ends up with a pudding-like texture. You could experiment with all type of flavor profiles on this one too!

Simple Apple Pancakes: Can’t do a breakfast video without pancakes, can I? These can be made in bulk and refrigerated, if you like. Skip the syrup and use cinnamon and nut butter, or top with a little applesauce to keep these Reset-approved.

Let’s get into it!
