I love breakfast. I could eat “breakfast foods” morning, noon, and night. (Sometimes I do!).
Like all meals, I can get stuck in a rut of scrambled eggs, cereal, and oatmeal. So I decided to up the ante and scope out a few special breakfast recipe ideas – the key was they still had to be healthy!
This month, I partnered with United Healthcare and the We Dare You to Share challenge series for this sponsored post to bring you a round up of healthy breakfast recipes! After all, it’s how we start out that can steer the entire day!
The focus of the We Dare You To Share challenge is on breakfast this March, with three challenges for you (win gift cards for participating – $400 monthly grand prize, $25 weekly prize for EACH contest!!):
- Share a photo of a healthy breakfast (yum!)
- Take a nutrition quiz (you’ll ace it!)
- Watch a video on nutrition labels (super important!)
I asked my fellow bloggers to share their best healthy breakfast recipe ideas, and I plan to try these out very, very soon! (All recipes and photos are the property of the bloggers mentioned and are shared here with permission).
Remember, if a recipe calls for something you don’t eat, you can always make it healthier by switching to a different sweetener or using plainer ingredients. These recipes are a great starting point for a healthful morning!
