Is your morning breakfast ritual depleting your energy? Try these delicious, energizing Body Ecology healthy breakfast ideas!
So you've started eating better and want healthy breakfast ideas?
Breakfast is one of the most neglected meals of the day when it comes to our health. With busy lives and long commutes to work, convenient processed foods like Pop Tarts, donuts and fast food have become par for the course.
Add a little coffee or orange juice and you have the typical American breakfast.
Full of sugar...acid producing...energy draining. The first meal of the day has become one of the most harmful for your health and it's no better if you skip it.
The Body Ecology Program was created to build your energy and vitality, while healing your digestive system so that you can achieve and maintain vibrant health. But what happens when you can no longer grab breakfast from a vending machine or fast food window?
Body Ecology has many healthy breakfast ideas that are quick and easy to prepare. This article will outline some tips for a healthy breakfast along with menu suggestions that will have you enjoying the most important meal of the day.
Planning your menu in advance will also allow you to soak your nuts, seeds or Body Ecology grain-like seeds the night before, so you are ready to prepare them for the next day.
In fact, we recommend that 80% of each meal is made up of vegetables. Vegetables meet all of the criteria for healthy breakfast tips: they are alkaline, provide hydration and are balanced from an acid/alkaline perspective.
Unfortunately, eating vegetables for breakfast seems very foreign to most people. It's certainly quite different from that all-carb processed-food meal full of sugar so popular today.
You'll see that there are plenty of healthy breakfast ideas that will have you eating your vegetables with delight each morning! Even more so when you see your energy soar!
My favorite morning wake up call consists of 3 super stars on the healthy breakfast ideas menu. If you are a light eater in the morning, one or all of these may satisfy you.
If you are more active or have a bigger appetite, you could start your day with these three hydrating "meals" and have something more substantial mid-morning. Try them for yourself:
Vitality SuperGreen is our alkalizing green food blended with nutrients and probiotics to nourish and heal your intestines. Just add filtered water and it can give you a quick energy boost that replaces your need for acid- producing coffee.
This is how I often prepare my Vitality SuperGreen:
You can get the benefits of fruit by adding these fruit juices to your Young Coconut Kefir or the probiotic liquids, CocoBiotic or Dong Quai, in the morning. Add a little stevia for sweetness and you have an excellent energy booster that is full of vitamins and minerals.
These meals include concentrated, contracting food, so they may be better for mid-day than for breakfast. However, they are a great choice for creating energy if you have very active mornings:
Combine these meals with lightly steamed vegetables and/or cultured vegetables. Having a glass of CocoBiotic with unsweetened cranberry or black currant juice sweetened with Stevia and taken one half hour before you eat your animal protein meal will keep you from feeling too contracted.
Milk Kefir - Kefir means "feel good" in Turkish and has been used for centuries to create energy and health. A wonderful alkalizing meal, milk kefir should be added only when your intestines lining is not inflamed so that the casein protein will not "leak" through the wounded gut lining. We introduce it during stage 2 of the Body Ecology program.
Blend these ingredients together.
This smoothie is excellent for children and adults alike who need a quick breakfast before they rush off to school or work in the morning. We have been told by many parents that the calming nutrients in raw milk kefir has helped their children with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). Kefir can curb cravings for sugar and improve bowel function. We recommend drinking milk kefir on an empty stomach, making it an ideal breakfast meal.
Body Ecology Grain-like Seeds - Since most of us are used to having grains for breakfast, these meals may be a good transition for your healthy Body Ecology breakfasts. Simply select one of our 4 gluten free Body Ecology grain-like seeds and cook them with either sweet or savory flavorings.
The convenient & economical Cocobiotic probiotic liquid is an excellent way to help start your day. It has a special blend of acidophilus and Saccharomyces boulardii (an amazing beneficial yeast) that helps heal your gut, among many other benefits!

Here are some ideas.
You can also add raw butter, ghee or organic unrefined coconut oil, but skip the milk!
Remember to balance your grain with vegetables, cultured vegetables or ocean vegetables. If you've had a green smoothie and Vitality SuperGreen before your grain dish, you won't need to have so many vegetables with your grain meal.
Cook it under pressure for about 30 minutes.
With just a few changes in your habits and armed with healthy breakfast ideas, you'll soon break free from processed foods to enjoy a high-energy day.
Nothing tastes better than your good health!
