    • Clean Eating Breakfast Ideas — Great Recipes I’ve Tested for You I’m always on the hunt for great Eating Clean recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. My criteria is that they all have to share the same attributes:    simple ingredients easy to prepare, and no more than 30 minutes to make Let’s start with the Best 5 Eating Clean Breakfast Recipes Breakfast is one of the most important meals because it sets the tone for the day ahead. Do you get bored with your options? Do you want something that will light up the eyes of your family when they stumble to the breakfast table?
    • We all struggle to keep enthusiastic — especially when you know you need clean eating breakfast idea that will pass the kids test. I decided to surf the web for inspiration and now I’m going to surprise and inspire you with you my finds. We all know that granola, smoothies, oatmeal, and scrambled eggs are great for breakfast. There is nothing wrong with those, but sometimes it’s fun to add variety. As always, use only the best and organic ingredients. I made all these recipes, tasted them, and reviewed them with my personal comments. I also experimented with different ingredients. Be creative and use ingredients that you love. Let’s get started. I have to say that I was very excited to see an “Eating Clean” crepe recipe. I love crepes and was very anxious to try it. LEGENDARY Whole Wheat Crepes Makes 2 crepes Total Time: 30 minutes Ingredients: 1 cup almond milk 1 tbsp honey 1/4 tsp salt 1 tsp vanilla 3 eggs 1 cup whole wheat flour 3/4 cup water 1 tbsp melted butter Directions: 1. Mix all ingredients in a blender. 2. Optional: melt a pat of butter on the pan. 3. Pour some batter into a pan, immediately swirl it around the pan so it evenly covers the whole pan. 4. Right away, gently put your spatula under the edges of the crepe, gently loosening it and creating the edges in preparation to flip them. 5. After the edges of the crepe begin to bubble, edge your spatula underneath the corners and check to see if it’s turning golden brown. If so, proceed to flip the crepe. Cook the other side until golden brownish. Cook the rest of the batter. Ideas for Clean Crepe Fillings: Almond Butter + Fruit Homemade Cashew Cream + Veggies Greek Yogurt + Apples + Cinnamon + Honey
    • My Review These crepes are definitely tasty and delicious. Mixing all the ingredients in a blender makes it easy and quick. My Comments For “Eating Clean”, I like to use only egg whites. My basic rule to replace 1 whole egg is: 2 organic egg whites + 1 teaspoon of organic grape seed oil. Therefore, I made this recipe with 6 organic egg whites + 3 teaspoons of organic grape seed oil. I did not use any butter at all. Also, all ingredients should be organic and at its raw state. In this recipe, raw honey is important. As for the fillings, you can go bananas! Literally. If you are a Nutella fan, why not mixing organic raw cocoa with some almond butter and raw honey to your taste. Spread this cocoa almond butter on the crepe and add chopped bananas or strawberries for a decadent “Eating Clean” crepe. Bon Appetit!

So, on my quest to find new breakfast ideas, I tumbled on this recipe. I felt adventurous enough to try it. Chia Pudding with Rolled Oats Makes 1 serving Total Time: 15 minutes Ingredients 1/4 cup whole chia seeds 3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk 1/2 scoop vanilla brown rice protein powder (Sun Warrior is my fav) 1 T rolled oats 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 3 to 4 drops of liquid stevia, or other natural sweetener
    • 1/2 sliced banana 1/8 cup blueberries Directions In a bowl, mix together all ingredients except the banana and blueberries. You’ll need to stir quite a bit because the protein powder clumps and resists dissolving into the milk. Once everything is well combined, let the mixture sit on the counter or in the fridge for 8-10 minutes. Stir in the banana, top with blueberries and enjoy! If you’re pressed for time in the morning, you could make it the night before, store it in the fridge and have it for breakfast in the morning, similar to overnight oats. My Review If you love Chia seeds, you will love this recipe. It’s crunchy and gooey. The vanilla and cinnamon add a lot of flavor. My Comments Because the author of the recipe said that the protein powder clumps, I added all the ingredients in a blender. Once well blended, I transferred the mixture to a bowl. I also replaced the stevia with 2 teaspoons of raw honey.

    • Directions 1. Bring rinsed quinoa, water and nectar to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cover. Let cook until all liquid is absorbed, about 10-15 minutes. 2. Remove from heat and let cool. Once quinoa is completely cool, toss with diced apples, blueberries, and chopped walnuts. Top with yogurt just before serving. My Review I love the idea of cooking the quinoa in the nectar. It gives a nice flavor and a little sweetness. A true “Eating Clean” recipe. My Comments I used organic mango nectar instead of apricot and I swapped the walnuts for pecans. Instead of blueberries, I used strawberries and raspberries because that’s what I had on hand. Once again, because I like it sweet, I drizzled some organic maple syrup. You can use raw honey as well. The variations are endless. Use the fruits that you love.

Makes 4 small pancakes Total Time: 10 minutes Ingredients 1/2 Banana 2 Egg Whites 1/2 Cup of Quick Cooking Oats 1/2 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract (avoid HFCS) Directions 1. Blend all ingredients in a blender (we use a Blendtec)
    • 2. Spray griddle with olive oil (we use a olive oil mister) 3. Once the griddle is warm add the pancake batter 4. Cook approx 2 minutes on each side, until done Topping Options: Real Maple Syrup, Honey, Fruit…or just enjoy them plain! My Review These are really easy and quick to do. Once again, it is done in a blender, my favorite tool in the kitchen. These pancakes really taste like banana bread. When you want pancakes, give this recipe a try. My Comments I added ¼ teaspoon of cinnamon and I use pure almond extract instead of vanilla the second time I made it. I also froze some pancakes for next week. You can reheat them in your toaster oven or oven at 350° for about 5 to 10 minutes. External Link: http://www.heandsheeatclean.com/2013/04/clean-eat-recipe-fouringredient.html I have to say that it has been a real challenge to find the last non-cereal breakfast recipe as most of the “Eating Clean” recipes are smoothies, scrambled eggs, and oatmeal. You already know about those. I was happy to find a “French Toast” recipe. Clean Eating Coconut French Toast Makes 4 servings Total time: 15 minutes Ingredients 3 egg whites 1/2 cup light coconut milk 1 tsp. vanilla extract 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon 4 slices clean, whole grain bread such as Ezekiel bread 1/4 cup dry coconut flakes Honey for topping Directions Step 1 – In a medium size mixing bowl, whisk together the egg whites, coconut milk, vanilla
    • extract and cinnamon. Step 2 – Submerge the bread in to the mixture, being sure to turn it several times to get all sides coated and wet. Step 3 – Using a non-sick pan and a very light coat of olive oil from a sprayer, cook on medium heat until the bread is cooked through, paying special attention to being sure that the egg and the middle of the bread slices are cooked through. Step 4 – Put the toast on a plate and sprinkle each piece with 1 tbsp. of the coconut flakes. Step 5 – Add a little honey to taste and serve. My Review I found these French toasts to be easy to do. They are light, airy, and delicious. The light coconut milk adds a nice subtle flavor. My Comments If you’re not a big coconut fan, instead of sprinkling the toasts with the coconut flakes, add fruits. I tried it with blueberries and strawberries. I also used maple syrup instead of the honey. I even made it with 2 teaspoons of cocoa powder mixed with the cinnamon. It was delicious!
