Bon Appetit - breakfast ideas! :)

Today I am going to do a post about what to have for breakfast! Everyone knows breakfast is the most important meal of the day because it gives you lots of energy. These are just so healthy ideas to have in the morning. I am going to go by the days of the week. So on Saturday and Sunday you will have more complicated breakfasts and it will take more time then on the weekday when time isn't always on your side. 

Sunday - yummy french toast 
to make 2 slices of french toast here is what you will need:
- 1 egg
- 2 pieces of bread (I prefer whole wheat but you can use whatever kind you want) 
- cinnamon to taste
- 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract 
- Pam or any non-stick spray
- milk (you can use nonfat skim milk as an alternative to the normal milk)  
- frozen or fresh fruit
- maple syrup 
- icing sugar 
1) Heat up your frying pan and put the non-stick spray on it. I suggest having it at medium heat.
2) Whisk your egg, vanilla extract, cinnamon and milk (use your judgement, I like to have it when it like to have mine looking foamy). Soak your bread in the mixture.
3) Put your bread on the frying pan. Cook until it is golden brown on each side. 
4) When it is cooking, microwave your frozen berries for a few seconds. 
5) Put your french toast on a plate. Put the berries on top with maple syrup and some icing sugar. 
If you have a lot of extra egg mixture you can just cook them up like scrambled eggs and have it as a side to your french toast! 
Monday - Oatmeal and Berries! 
- instant oatmeal (I like the maple and brown sugar one, but you can always get original and add brown sugar)
- frozen berries
1) Cook your oatmeal as directed on the package.
2) When it is cooking (or after) microwave your berries 
3) Put it on top! Now you have a filling and healthy breakfast :)
Tuesday - English Muffin
- whole wheat english muffin 
- cream cheese or jam or peanut butter
1) Toast your english muffin
2) Put your favourite spread! Like peanut butter and jam, or just jam or cream cheese.
Wednesday - Scrambled egg whites and toast 
- 1 egg
- 2 egg whites (you can google how to crack and egg to just get the egg whites, it just takes practice!) 
- salt and pepper
- 2 slices of bread (whatever kind you prefer)
- fruit (like grapes or something)
1) Heat up your frying pan on medium heat 
2) Whip your egg and egg whites together, add salt and pepper to taste 
3) Put it on the frying pan a scramble it 
4) Cook your toast, when it pops put butter or jam 
5) Put your scrambled egg whites on your plate with toast and side of fruit! 
Thursday - Yogurt, granola and fruit!
- Yogurt (I like vanilla the best, but you can use whatever kind you want)
- Granola 
- Fruit (like strawberry, blueberry, ect.)
Mix your yogurt, fruit and granola together! 
Friday - A tasty treat! 
- your favourite cereal (like lucky charms or you can have a healthy cereal)
- milk (you can have skim milk as an alternative)
- a piece of fruit (like an apple)
Put the cereal in a bowl with the milk (complicated stuff) and have the piece of fruit on the side 
Saturday - Pancakes and turkey bacon! 
- pancake mix, or how ever you make pancakes at home
- fruit (if you want blueberries in your pancake or as a topping)
- turkey bacon 
1) heat up your frying pan & add your turkey bacon (I suggest medium heat)
2) Cook it for 10 min on each side, or until or however you like it (crispy or not). The package might also have cooking times. 
3) Once it is cooked put it in the oven on low, this will just keep it warm when cooking your pancakes 
4) Mix your pancake batter and add blueberries if you want.
5) Heat up your frying pan and add cooking spray to it (on medium heat)
6) When pancake starts to bubble a lot on the one side flip it, and then wait until it is golden brown. 
7) Put pancakes and turkey bacon on a plate and add fruit if you want and maple syrup 

So those are my breakfast recipes for the week. I hope you enjoyed this post and let me know if you tried any of these out! :) Talk to you later! (and bon appetit)
