4 Nourishing Real Food Breakfast Ideas

4 Real Food Breakfast Ideas—Soulful Skin | Real food breakfasts that are easy to prepare and great for the whole family.

Whether you are making breakfast for yourself or the kids, it is important to start the day well with a nourishing breakfast. By including good amounts of protein and fat you kick start your metabolism, stabilize blood sugar levels and provide sustained energy and focus.

We eat a lot of eggs for breakfast, they are highly nutritious and filling, but we thought it was about time to trial other breakfast ideas! Both my daughters favour high protein breakfasts—egg and salmon patties, mince on toast or organic sausages— so they go to school satiated and avoid mid-morning crashes.

If you are looking for inspiration here are four real-food breakfast ideas to help you and your family to start the day full of energy.

Yoghurt Parfait

This is a quick and easy breakfast. Simply layer a smoothie glass or jar with any of the following; greek yoghurt/coconut milk yoghurt, unsweetened gluten-free granola/oats, fruit, nuts and seeds.

Overnight Berry Oats

The night before soak 1 cup of gluten-free oats in 1 cup of warm water mixed with 2 tablespoons of lemon juice. This is an important step that makes the oats more digestible and deactivates harmful anti-nutrients like phytic acid. In the morning cook the oats over a low heat with your favourite full fat milk. Add cinnamon or shredded coconut. Serve warm topped with mixed berries. Makes two servings.

Basil and Wild Salmon Breakfast Patties

Wild-caught salmon is a wonderful food to include at breakfast, it is full of healthy Omega-3 fats, provides the body with selenium and is a good source of calcium (when eaten with the bones in). We often make this recipe here.

Mince and Greens on Toast

Organic grass-fed beef is rich in Omega-3 fats, vitamin E, beta-carotene, and CLA (a beneficial fatty acid). For kids, the great thing about eating mince on toast for breakfast is that you can easily hide finely chopped kale, spinach or other greens in the tomato sauce. Serve the mince on gluten-free or sourdough toast.
