I used to be skeptical of breakfasts that look like this, but I finally broke down and tried it.... and I was impressed! It was refreshing, tasted good, and kept me going all morning = I am a convert!
To ensure I don't go overboard, I use a small salad plate to help with portion control. Measuring works if you have that level of motivation in the morning, but I find the smaller plate is just easier. This is so straight forward that it is hard to call it a recipe, but I'm going to anyway.
Amy's Get up and Go Breakfast!
-Get a small salad plate
-Fill 1/3 of the plate with fresh organic sliced strawberries (cut the night before to save time in the morning! And btw Aldi has great prices on organics!)
-Add 1/2 Avocado, sliced
-Add a dollop of whole milk plain Greek yogurt to the plate
-Top yogurt with some roasted pumpkin seeds
This will fill you with good nutritious stuff: protein, antioxidants, fiber, and good fats, and will energize you for the day ahead without the heavy feeling a carb loaded breakfast tends to do (bagels, toast, donuts, muffins, I am looking at you!)
*In case you didn't know: Pumpkin seeds are "a rich source of protein, unsaturated fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals that reduce risk factors of chronic diseases, including cancer."
