Deciding what to eat for breakfast in the morning can seem like solving a complex mathematical equation at times. We are often still half asleep as we make our way into the kitchen looking for some nourishment. We get stuck in a rut and usually end up eating something that leaves us feeling uninspired.

I recommend that when thinking about the week ahead of you, come up with 3 different breakfast options that you can rotate your way through. This alleviates trying to re-invent the wheel everyday and makes your morning routine a whole lot easier. One of my favourite breakfasts is a breakfast sandwich. It checks off all my boxes for deliciousness, balance as well as ease.

1 slice whole grain or sprouted grain bread, lightly toasted
1-2 tbsp hummus
1 slice of tomato
1 free range egg, hard boiled & sliced or over-easy
1/2 sliced avocado
drizzle of balsamic vinegar
crumbled feta, optional

Place toast on plate. Spread hummus in place of butter. Place tomato slice on bottom, followed by egg and then avocado. Drizzle the balsamic vinegar and sprinkle with feta. Use a fork & knife to eat, unless you are incredibly skilled and not making a mess. Enjoy.
