Protein, Fiber and Nutrient-Dense Breakfast Recipes

Throughout the month of August, members of the Wellpower Method community participated in a month-long challenge to stir up some tasty balanced breakfasts every morning. 

The main goal of this challenge was to encourage people to make balanced breakfasts and show that healthy breakfasts can be tasty, yet nutrient rich! And simpler to make than one may think.

If you ever find yourself struggling to wrap up a healthy balanced breakfast in the mornings, just know that all you need is a fruit or veggie, whole grain or starchy veggie, healthy fat, and a source of protein. Read into my blog The Real Reason You Should be Prioritizing Breakfast for more details into why breakfast is the most important meal of the day!

Tons of recipes were shared and posted on to the Facebook community group and Instagram by tagging @wellbygabrielle and #balancedbreakfastchallenge. 

This blog has all the inspiration, healthy, and delicious recipes you need created by our wonderful and creative breakfast challenge participants!
