If you are looking for a few family-friendly Whole30 compliant breakfast recipes, you are in luck! These breakfast recipes are not only delicious and Whole30 compliant, but your family will love them!
If you have been following me for a while, you will remember that I did my very first round of Whole30 back in October. That was a wonderful, eye-opening experience to my relationship with food as well as how my body responds to various food groups. Specifically sugar and grains. My taste buds and brain love the glucose rush they both give me, but the bloated belly, foggy head, and tired eyes tell me that the rest of my body isn’t too keen on them.
I kept sugar and grains out of my diet for the most part after that…until Christmas. Unfortunately, I gave myself a little too much wiggle room through the holiday season and my sweet tooth and dopamine took over and my old, bad habits (such as too much maple syrup on my oatmeal and enjoying pizza night with my family a few too many times during the course of a month) started to sneak back into my life. I can always feel the effects these choices have on my body, as I feel slower, sluggish and not nearly as vibrant as I have become accustomed to feeling. It is clear that it’s time to hit the reset button on my diet. Hello Whole30!
So let’s start with breakfast. It seems like most people find breakfast to be the most difficult meal of the day to add variety to on Whole30. To that I say pffffffttttttt. Breakfast can be whatever you want it to be. . In fact, on Whole30, they encourage you to number your meals 1,2,3 to help you break out of the meal stereotypes and just embrace what feels right to eat.
So let’s do that. Let’s think outside the breakfast box. Even if you aren’t doing Whole30 yourself, perhaps this list of “meal 1” worthy dishes will inspire you to mix up what you eat for the first meal of the day.
