{Hearty GF Breakfast}

There are days when I am so bored with my breakfast.  Believe me, there are many options for delicious GF and Vegan breakfasts. Yet, somehow I can still get in a rut.  Are you with me or am I the only one running out of ideas at the break of dawn? Probably not, so today I am going to share some of my little breakfast ideas with you.  As I push myself to think outside the box and get creative in the days to come perhaps we can avoid that rut all together!

I have always preferred to start my day with a hearty meal, so cereal just doesn't cut it.  A simple, quick, nutritious and filling breakfast can provide the foundation for a marvelous day, full of energy and mental sharpness.  Consequently, it's worth it to dive in and get creative with your first meal of the day.   If you're new to GF or just wondering what all these options are let me share a few ideas with you:

1. GF Oatmeal - top with nuts, dried fruit or fresh fruit; sweeten with vanilla or regular stevia, agave, honey or pure maple syrup. Mix and match!

2. Coconut Yogurt or Kefir with GF Granola - I prefer plain with stevia and cinnamon granola. Add your favorite granola and/or toppings (see oatmeal).

3. GF Crepe with Vegan Daiya Cheddar Cheese and Caramelized Onion Filling - Yes, it's AMAZING. See BabyCakes new cookbook.

4. GF English Muffin topped with Vegan Daiya Cheese, Tomato and Avocado Slices.

5. GF Bread toasted and spread with Raw Almond Butter.  Topped with a dust of Cinnamon or Sea Salt and a drizzle of Honey.

6. Smoothies!

7. GF Muffins paired with a spoonful of Raw Almond Butter!

 *If these aren't enough check out my recipes under "breakfast".

Finally a very savory and protein filled breakfast -

{Fresh Beans with Wild Smoked Alaskan Salmon, slices of Ripe Avocado and Himalayan Sea Salt}

1 Cup Fresh Cooked Beans (warm or cool)
2-6 oz of Wild Smoked Alaskan Salmon
Fresh Lemon Slice
1/4 Organic Hass Avocado
Dash of Pink Himalayan Sea Salt
Any other Spices you might enjoy!

*For variety, reduce Beans to 1/2 Cup and use a slice of toasted GF and Vegan Bread for your base!

A very different breakfast than you are accustomed to I am sure, but wait till you try it! I use my fresh seasoned homemade Beans as the base.  I tear small pieces of the tasty Salmon and place them on top of the Beans.  A squeeze of fresh Lemon Juice over the Salmon is always a nice addition.   I am obsessed with Avocado, so I can be a bit picky about quality and texture.  Make sure you get a ripe organic Avocado for best flavor. Slice it and fan across the Salmon. Finally sprinkle with Sea Salt and other Spices.  Enjoy!
