“Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper”
Or so the saying goes, but many do the opposite (us included!). Breakfast is a hurried affair, and dinner is a rich feast. But it doesn’t have to be! Breakfast should give us the energy and strength we need for a full day. I hope that my post with 16 nourishing breakfast ideas gives some new inspiration for breakfast.
And I can’t wait to hear your ideas, recipes and tips!
I would love to hear what recipes work for you, how you deal with the time crunch, and how you get your children fed nourishing food in the morning. Remember to keep the food “real” and nourishing!

A Nourished Start: A Breakfast Carnival
I will start us off with 16 different nourishing breakfast ideas, they range from familiar, traditional, nourishing ideas, to some exciting new recipe links!
At Kitchen Stewardship, Katie shares how to make the “fluffiest” scrambled egg. Go on over for to find out her secrets!
At Frugal Home Cooking, you will find a delicious recipe for Maple Almond Breakfast Cake. Sounds great!
And Sarah from Sarah’s Musings, shares a wealth of links to nourishing breakfast recipes, including “15 minute” recipes. Thanks Sarah!
Cheeseslave adds a recipe for Healthy Banana Bread that uses maple syrup for a sweetener and sprouted flour. Mouthwatering as I type!
At Stocking the Pantry, you will find a lovely recipe for a soaked, Movenpick Inspired Muesli. She describes it well. “This version is different from every muesli recipe I could find on the Internet because it is not a dry cereal, but a wet, yogurt-based muesli. Imagine a dry oat based cereal combined with yogurt and fruit and left overnight for the flavours to meld and the oats to become soft, almost like a cooked oatmeal. The red berries give it a lovely pink colour.”
Doesn’t that sound amazing?
Next, at Local Nourishment, hop on over to find a whole grain, soaked coffee cake! It’s a nourishing redo of a family favorite!
At Living on Love, we find another delicious, soaked baked good! An Oatmeal Blueberry Muffin. Sounds wonderful. I personally love muffins for breakfast.
For a dairy free/gluten free option, at Hadley Holistics, a Warming Quinoa Porridge is shared. A great oat free option too, for those sensitive.
Kimberly, from Hartke is online, shares about her adventures making Nourishing Traditions soaked pancakes. She says, “The pancakes were light and fluffy and delicious.”
At Life in Cincinnati, we get a SOAKED Whole Wheat Blueberry Scone recipe! (Plus a link to some yummy sausages!). Wouldn’t that make a killer breakfast?
Carrie, a fellow Real Food Media blogger from Organic and Thrifty shares a recipe for a grain free pancake! She uses coconut flour in it. She shares her many “flops” with grain free pancakes, but says that these ones really are great!. Thanks Carrie!
Speaking of grain free, over at Nourishing Days, you will find more grain free breakfast ideas! Loving it.
At Green in a Pink World, a delicious gluten free recipe is shared for a Roasted Beet and Cheese Pie! It looks amazing, and uses a millet crust, so it’s safe for the gluten free cooks.
At the Hospitality Haven, you will find a whole wheat, honey/rapadura sweetened Dutch Breakfast Bread. Yummy!
Michelle, from Find your Balance shares two recipes with us today. One for Carrot Cake Breakfast Cookies (only sweetened with fruit and carrots!) and for Buckwheat Crispies. Thanks, Michelle!
At Vehement Flame, a <a href=”http://vehementflame.blogspot.com/2009/04/nourished-start-breakfast-carnival.html”>Maple Oat Breakfast Pie</a> is shared! It boasts a barley crust and a maple syrup and maple sugar laden filling. Sounds like a delicious way to start the day!
At Chiot’s Run, you will find a new “Breakfast of Champions”, soaked oat groats! Her pictures are beautiful! I love her tip for cooking up a large amount once a week and reheating small amounts.
And Stacy, at Completely Edible (What a great blog name), shares her favorite standby’s for breakfast.
You will find a soaked allergy friendly breakfast at Bean Town Baby, in the form of quinoa porridge with fruit! While there, also check out her yummy smoothie directions.
Also, from Vika at Small Steps Backwards, you will find two yummy blueberry recipes, one for a soaked muffin recipe, and another for a blueberry smoothie. Doesn’t that sound good!
Stephanie from, Keeper of the Home, shares with us two delicious recipes. Peanut Butter Smoothies (isn’t that unique! It sounds like a great way to get protein in!), and a soaked baked oatmeal recipe!
