(two) Clean Eating Breakfasts

Hello ladies! I'm bringing you two 'clean' breakfasts today - both recipes are super delish, healthy, and (best of all) quick. I can whip up either of these in less than 10 minutes, which is way better than grabbing a granola bar (most of which are actually NOT healthy). I am a fan of both savory and sweet breakfasts, so I decided to post one of each. 

Mexican Egg & Rice Bowl 

- 1/2 cup brown rice
- 2 Tbs salsa
- 5 egg whites (or 1/2 cup if you use prepackaged egg whites)
- pinch of salt 
- pepper to taste
- avocado 

- prepare brown rice
- while rice is cooking, combine egg whites and salsa
- pour the mixture of egg/salsa into pan, mixing until cooked to liking
- serve eggs over rice, and top with avocado, then sprinkle with salt and pepper 

Protein Pancakes

- 1 scoop whey protein powder (I use vanilla, purchased from Whole Foods)
- 2 egg whites
- 1/2 banana
- 1/4 cup oats (old fashioned kind)
- 1 tablespoon milk (of any kind)
- 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 
- strawberries
- blue agave 

- combine all ingredients in blender, and blend until smooth (do not over-blend)
- let mixture set for a few minutes
- spray pan with cooking oil (I use spray coconut oil) 
- pour mix into pan and cook for 2 minutes on each side (medium -high heat)
- flip cake when you see bubbles throughout entire cake (but be sure not to let it burn) ;) 
- top with strawberries and blue agave 

Another current favorite is overnight oats - SO good. Do you have any 'clean' recipes? Please share! 


  1. Those both look so good! I am so curious about clean eating but have not done my homework. I think I eat pretty clean?! Well, chased down with a diet coke that is:) Thanks for the recipes!

  3. These look so good! I will have to try them!!


  4. I've been eating clean as well (most of the time), going to try both of these!

  5. Will definitely be trying these! :)
