Often at the lake, a breakfast needs to serve as a great source of energy while being super quick but also healthy. For a fast paced lake lifestyle, our plan is usually that during the week we try to keep it quick, but make wholesome substitutes in normal recipes to cut calories, fat, and sugars, and other BAD things from our diets so there is less guilt to splurge a little on the weekends for BBQs with friends and neighbors and not fret the expected s'mores around the fire pit. So, below, find a couple of GO TO options for a quick healthy breakfast option.
Start with coffee! Trader Joes and Aldi have excellent selections of coffee, either ground or whole bean which can be fresh ground in the store or at home. Skip the cream and sugar, and try lightening up your beverage with some almond or coconut milk instead, or even better, learn to love a great coffee black - naked with no additives, which can help you learn to appreciate the actual test of a really good coffee.
Organic or whole foods are always the best, but try to make choices that align with a pre-planned budget. The following is a great easy recipe for those mornings when everyone just wants to get out the door and onto the lake.
2 eggs (either whole or whites)
¼ cup of milk
1 oz shredded cheese mix (try Sargento's mixes)
¼ cup of spinach leaves (Publix in Cullman AL has a great selection)
1 Tortilla (we used Mission)
Add your choice of bacon, deli meat, or breakfast sausage for a little more protein. A couple of slices of avocado, to top it off, makes this burrito fast, wholesome and packs enough energy to get you through a hectic morning.
ENJOY ...and see ya Lakeside!
