I have slowly been changing the way I eat over the last 3 years since my cancer diagnosis. I have embraced what is called Nutritarianism and I have LOVED every minute of figuring out how to eat this way. I love food and I do not feel deprived at all as a Nutritarian…it is the opposite. I feel like I am experiencing a variety of foods and have developed a taste for wholesome, healthy food!
What is a Nutritarian?
Breakfast is a great way to get nutrients. Many breakfast foods are naturally high in nutrients. It is my favorite meal of the day.
My 5 Go To Healthy Breakfasts
Oatmeal Freezer Pucks
These are a staple for me. I always have them in my freezer, whether they are homemade by me or bought from Trader Joes. I always add some frozen berries to the top of mine, then warm it a few more seconds in the microwave. I also add cinnamon as it is surprisingly a very nutritious spice. I eat this breakfast at least 3 times a week. It keeps me full, regular & gives lots of energy.
Oh how we love our chia oats around here! They really don’t need to sit overnight, but you will need at least 15 minutes for the oats to soften and the chia to swell and soak up the milk, which thickens the pudding. We use them as a snack almost more often than breakfast. We have them for breakfast at least once a week. These are incredibly healthy for you, with loads of fiber, protein & omega’s.

This is my new go to breakfast and the one I have been eating most often lately. Talk about easy…2 tablespoons of cereal, top with milk and let sit a few minutes. Stir and eat. It is amazing how sustaining those 2 tablespoons of cereal are. I feel as full as if I ate a huge bowl of oatmeal. It is a bit pricey, but lasts a long time and well worth the health benefits that you get from this. They have a few flavors…the Cranberry Vanilla Qia is my new favorite flavor.
Rips Big Bowl
ALL 3 of my girls LOVE this breakfast. It is multiple healthy cereals, oats & chia plus fruit, all in one bowl. Click through to read more about this intriguing breakfast. I think you are going to like it!
Berry Pancake Bites
These are a weekend go to breakfast for us, and a great afternoon snack. It uses a whole grain pancake mix. Make mix according to directions for pancakes, sprinkle top with berries, and bake. Couldn’t be easier, and these are so good my girls have started eating them without syrup, which is a bonus. Saves sugar calories and the grocery budget!
