If you’re gonna do breakfast, do breakfast right! What does that mean you ask? It means cereals, sweet muffins, donuts, pastries and sugary instant oatmeals are the worse breakfast options and in my opinion, you’re better off skipping breakfast if those really are your only options. And, I’m willing to bet they are not.
Don’t get me wrong. I believe there is a time and place for sweet treats, but they are meant for special occasions. It’s very easy to tell yourself every day or every week is a special occasion and eat those things more regularly than you should. Being honest with yourself is half the battle.
In my February 14 day reset challenge, the group gained an understanding of how breakfast can change the way they feel the entire day, and effect or not effect sugar cravings throughout the day.
The group was surprised with how drastically their sugar cravings reduced when they did breakfast the right way. I’m telling you. It makes a difference.
Doing breakfast right, to me, also means making it a big one. Hearty, filling and satisfying like this Tater Tot Breakfast Bake!
Originally, I made this recipe for the guy because he struggles big time with breakfast. Captain Crunch is usually his go to. And he wonders why he has inflammation and tummy issues? But he loves tater tots and he generally likes eggs so I thought this Tater Tot Breakfast Bake would motivate him to do breakfast the right way. The only problem? It was too good, I didn’t share it with him!
For this recipe, I used tater tots from Sprouts. I also made it a second time using Alexia sweet potato tots. SO good! The recipe makes a ton of food so this one is not only great for meal prepping for a quick breakfast during the week, but also for a weekend get together or brunch.
If you make it, tag me on Instagram. I love seeing your masterpieces!
