Real Food Breakfasts - Intentional By Grace
Breakfast is the first meal of the day, and as we all know, it is arguably the most important meal of the day.

However, if your family is like mine, we struggle to get going in the morning. Not to mention, we have hungry little vultures birdies screaming chirping at our feet begging for food, food, food from the instant their little feet hit the floor (and always before I’ve even had my first sip of coffee).

Breakfast in our house must be easy but nourishing. Protein packed but quick. Tasty but child-friendly.

And since I like to have fresh new ideas in list format that I can pull from, I thought perhaps I wasn’t alone. Therefore, below are 40+ real food breakfast ideas to make your mornings run a little more smoothly while nourishing little (and big) hungry bellies.

I’m particularly partial to the freezer-friendly section!

  1. Thanks for including a couple of my recipes! This is a great list and one I’m sure I will reference a lot. Breakfast is an important meal for us too. I especially feel the effects if I don’t start my day with some sort of protein.
