5 healthy breakfast options

5 Healthy Breakfast Options!

My favorite good for you breakfast foods!


1. 2 Ingredient Flour-less Banana Pancakes

This is perfect if you have ripe bananas! 1 mashed banana and two eggs. Mix together for your "pancake" batter! I always add some cinnamon for extra flavor. This breakfast has 261 calories and is a great pre-workout meal!

2. Chocolate Peanut Butter Overnight Oats

This is my go-to breakfast meal prep. Super easy to make, really tasty and can be tailored to anyone's cravings! Oats, chia seeds, PB2 powder, chocolate flavored greens powder, and almond milk. You can always omit the chia seeds. Sub out the PB and chocolate, replace with fruits, nuts, coconut flakes. The options are endless and my recipe has a caloric value of 255 per serving.

3. Kodiak Cake Double Chocolate Waffle/Pancakes

This box mix is my new favorite and I am completely okay with eating it every day for the rest of my life. When mixed with eggs and almond milk instead of water, this batter has 21 grams of protein. Best served, for me, with fresh sliced strawberries and drizzled honey. When I prepped this, it yielded 9 waffles bringing 162 calories per waffle!

Veggie Egg Scrambles 

Some days I don't have anything prepped and those days I usually go for eggs. I love started with any veggies I have. chopped and added to a skillet. Onions, peppers, asparagus, spinach, sweet potatoes are all really good options. Once the veggies are cooked down I add the eggs and scramble. You can do egg whites or the whole egg, but both are great choices.

5. Protein Shakes

Most Monday mornings are busy for me and protein shakes are a savior. My favorite is chocolate, plant-based, 100 calories per serving and has 15g of protein! I usually add frozen bananas or strawberries to make it more like a milkshake!

A Tribute To Dads Everywhere: Happy Father's Day

It's a love without end, Amen.


It's Father's Day season everybody, a time to thank our fathers, and to take special time to remember and honor the fathers no longer here with us as well. I'd like to give a huge shoutout to all the Dads out there: you are loved and appreciated more than you know! Happy Father's Day to you.

As I have grown up and matured, my relationship with my own Dad has changed tremendously. There is one thing that hasn't changed, though, and that's his ceaseless support of me and all of my endeavors, no matter how crazy he thinks they are. He's the one person I am certain will always be my biggest fan. (And you too of course, Mom!) That's what Dads do; they never fail to cheer you on.

You see, my Dad has never sat back on the sidelines. He's always wanted to be involved in whatever it was I was dealing with, from school to athletics to situations I wouldn't necessarily want to include him in (A.K.A., boy situations). Despite the latter, you gotta love 'em. That's what Dads do; they insert themselves into your lives, for they know what's best for you (or at least they think they do).

On a little aside, thank you Dad, for always being on my side, even when Mom was not. That's what Dads do; they help you stick up to the real boss. (Sorry, Mom!)

Without fail, my Dad is the guy up at the crack of dawn on a Saturday morning, revving up the lawn mower or banging a hammer somewhere, coercing my siblings and I out of bed to help him with his unending list of things to be done around the house. That's what Dads do; they teach you to work hard and do the most with the short time we have here on earth.

My Dad is the greatest advice-giver. He strives to lead a simple life, and I never really understood why until I got a little older. I've learned the best of life lessons from him over the years. After all, in the words of first Zac Brown, and then my father, "Life's too easy to be so damn complicated". There have been countless times that I've looked back and realized that my old man was right after all. They know what they're talking about. That's what Dads do; they share the most valuable life advice.

I can honestly say that my Dad is my absolute, hands-down, favorite person to drink a beer with. There's no one I have more fun with simply chillin' on the pier, sippin' Miller Lite and shootin' the breeze. I can honestly say he's one of my best friends. That's what Dads do; they're the most genuine pals you'll find in this life.

All in all, Father's Day, along with all the other 364 days in a year, is the perfect time to take a moment and appreciate all that your father has done for you, and continues to do. Above all, spend time with your Dad. Take him to a baseball game. Bring him to the bar with you. Ask him to take the boat for a cruise sometime. Time is so valuable. Trust me, it'll mean the world to him.
