Simple, Healthy Breakfast Recipes That’ll Leave Your Mouth Watering

On a chilly fall morning, the last thing you may want to do is crawl out from under your warm covers. And the thought of stepping into your cold kitchen to prepare a full breakfast? Forget it!

But we’re taking the dread out of your morning meal prep with three simple, nourishing breakfasts from the talented cooks at LiveEatLearn.com and we added some extra autumn-inspired deliciousness to warm you up and fill your belly when it’s chilly outside.

1. Crockpot Steel Cut Oats & Butternut Squash

Nothing says cozy like a crockpot meal! This recipe will not only fill your home with the wonderful smells of fall but even better, it'll do all the work while you're sleeping.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of organic butternut squash (peeled, reseeded, and chopped)
  • 1 cup of organic, non-GMO steel cut oats
  • 1/4 cup of organic maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. Celtic Sea Salt
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp. ground ginger
  • 3 cups water
  • Optional toppings: Pecans, almonds, full-fat coconut milk

Add all the ingredients, except the optional toppings, into your slow cooker. Give it a quick stir. Then, cook it on low for 6 to 8 hours, or on high for 5 to 7 hours. The recipe is done once the oats are soft and the butternut squash is tender.

Once done, use a large spatula to mash up the butternut squash. Then give it one final stir before serving with your toppings.

Tip: The butternut squash will provide a natural sweetness, so feel free to adjust or leave out the maple syrup.

2. Sweet Potato and Spinach Breakfast Skillet

This veggie-packed breakfast is perfect if you need a quick fill-up while on the go. Prep the ingredients the night before, so you can whip up this hearty breakfast in less than 30 minutes!

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 sweet potato, diced
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 1 bell pepper, diced (you can use any color!)
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 cup of spinach
  • 1/2 cup of uncooked quinoa
  • 1 cup of vegetable broth
  • 4 eggs prepared in your favorite way

Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-level heat. Add in all the veggies, except the spinach. Toss, cover, and cook for about 10 minutes (or until the sweet potatoes are a smidge soft). If you like your food a bit more spicy, you can toss in a poblano chili!

Then, add the spinach and cook until it’s wilted down. This will take just a minute or two. Stir in the quinoa, add in the broth, and start to simmer. Cover and cook for about 10-15 minutes, or until the quinoa is cooked.

Top the veggie skillet with your eggs and sprinkle with a little salt and pepper!

Tip: Throw in a sliced avocado for an extra creamy touch!

3. Oh My Pumpkin Smoothie

As you know, pumpkin is the humble mascot for the fall season! This healthy smoothie recipe is jam-packed with all of your fall favorites. Plus, the added jolt of coffee will give you an extra pep in your step.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup of pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup of raw milk or your favorite nut milk
  • 1/2 cup of coffee
  • 1 frozen and chopped banana
  • 2 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 tsp. of pumpkin pie spice

Blend all the ingredients until it’s smooth and creamy. If you want a more intense pumpkin or spice flavor, add in more pumpkin pie spice or throw in an extra dash of cinnamon.

Tip: If you didn’t freeze your banana beforehand, that’s okay! Just add 1/2 cup of ice.

Patient Testimonials

Dr Don Sharnowski is a doctor who is above and beyond all other doctors! Probably his most outstanding quality is that he LISTENS to what his patients say. He is willing to explain things to his patients in terms they can understand. Dr Don treats his patients with wisdom, understanding, gentleness, care, encouragement and he is willing to "go the extra mile" to give his patients the proper treatment they need. He does not treat patients like they were on an assembly line or like he is rushing them out the door. Dr Don has fixed many of the problems I had at my first visit, one of which I had endured for 3 years. Dr Don was able to fix that problem in 2 weeks when others had not. Dr Don has also helped me loose 40 lbs so far. My total recovery is still an ongoing process, but should be a cinch with Dr Don's expert help! Thank you, Dr Don! You are an awesome answer to prayers!

Super Awesome Doctor in Overland Park, Kansas!! He really knows his stuff love his Holistic approach. Wish I lived closer so I could see him on the regular, at least we can chat on the regular! Very informative in all aspects of health! Five years ago this man took our health and turned it around 360 degrees. My son got ear infections very often. Both my boys have respiratory issues. My husband asthma and overweight. Myself aches and pains, specifically on my left side and joints. Well needless to say no more ear infections respiratory not nearly as often my husband is 80lbs less and never uses his inhaler . My sons ear infections...What ear infections...They are no longer! Thanks Dr. Don for all you do and have done!!

Lots of Love from The Stevens

Dr Don Sharnowski is truly an amazing Doctor. He listens to his patients and treats in a very complete way. He is very knowledgeable because he never stops learning. He is a great communicator and will help you learn better ways to be healthy if you will actually do what he teaches.

Don (Dr Sharnowski) is truly one of a kind. He is warm, inviting and incredibly generous with his time, but also really knowledgeable about the body and everything within. You won't find crystal balls here. You'll find a super nice guy in sneakers who also sells farm fresh eggs at the counter. I went in expecting to get adjusted (and was scared, because I'd never seen a chiro before). Instead, what I experienced was someone who actually sat down and listened to my history, connected the dots between several ailments (instead of jumping to prescribe one drug apiece to treat each one), and explained things that no one had ever taken the time to do. I was there about my back specifically, but we talked about my whole health. Instead of just prescribing an anti inflammatory (which is what my other doc did), he explained why we get inflammation in our bodies, and how to help reduce it with what we eat. I've also been on thyroid medication for over 10 years, and he actually explained what the thyroid is, and what the drug I take is, and what it does. But not in a defensive or overly crunchy way. He just openly explained in a way that I could understand it. I highly recommend Don to anyone with a body who wants to feel better. His approach is approachably holistic. Just common sense, whole body-centered treatment.
