Beginning the day with a solid breakfast is important for blood sugar balance, learning, focus and attention, but far too many of us reach for sweet convenience items first thing in the morning like pastries, bagels, cereal, instant oatmeal and lattes. These sweet breakfasts set us up for blood sugar spikes throughout the morning and can lead to hormone imbalances, mood swings, and other unpleasant health effects. Often, when we choose savory breakfast recipes, we end up eating more vegetables, fibre, healthy fats and protein – all of which will set us up for blood sugar stability and provide us with valuable vitamins and minerals to support our wellbeing.
And so, instead of grabbing a bowl of cereal, try one of these 20 Best Savory Breakfast Recipes. Many of these savory breakfast ideas are easy to batch cook and prep in advance, which will make your mornings easier and a lot more delicious!
