Recently I’ve realized that my best days start when I not only have a healthy, delicious breakfast, but also when that breakfast looks as amazing as it tastes. Waking up to a big bowl of beautiful puts a much needed early morning smile on my face, especially since I’ve been waking extra early for morning yoga! I wanted to share some of my most recent breakfast creations, I hope they start your day with energy, nutrition, and a positive outlook too!

I try to alternate my breakfast each day between granola inspired yogurt bowls and big fruity green smoothies. Sometimes though, when I’m in a hurry, breakfast bars, mini muffins, and other make ahead baked goods are my go-to’s! You can get more pictures of my breakfasts, lunches, quick snacks, and more (including my adorable kitten!) on my instagram: piecesinprogress.

Oh and like me, all of these recipes are gluten free!

This week’s fruit prep. There were absolutely amazing sales on berries this week (finally!) so I might have gone a bit overboard haha! I have 2 jumbo packs of raspberries, 1 jumbo pack of strawberries, 2 twelve oz packs of blackberries, 2 mangoes peeled & chopped and 4 peaches. There will be so many colorful yogurt parfaits, snack bowls, salads and of course some ulgy-smoothie-happy-tummy green smoothies with all these berries!

I hope your fridge is looking as fresh and colorful as mine this week! :)
