Most mornings, my go-to breakfast is a protein and nutrient dense smoothie. It gives me the nutrients my body needs to get my day started right. But there are some days when I’m in the mood for something hearty like a “cereal” breakfast. My favorite is gluten-free raw muesli which I soak in vanilla coconut milk (unsweetened, of course) overnight to allow the grains to soften and the delicious flavors to develop. It’s an easy breakfast recipe that hits the spot.

Our favorite gluten-free chef Elana Amsterdam has a new cookbook! All 100 recipes in here are free of gluten, dairy, grains and processed foods. I use Elana’s recipes and recommend them to patients at the Eleven Eleven Wellness center all the time for three reasons: 1. They are simple, using minimal ingredients that are easy to find. 2. They are delicious. I have never made one of her recipes that didn’t turn out great! 3. They are paleo, or grain-free.
I love breakfast. I used to be a coffee and muffin girl but over time I have figured out that my breakfast was setting me up to crash and burn. Now on most mornings, I fire up the blender and make a smoothie with protein powder. I find this makes a big difference in my energy, and I have fewer cravings throughout the day. If your current go-to breakfast is a bagel and coffee, you can do better!
