7 Recipes To Greet Each Day As A Gift
THESE BREAKFAST DISHES ARE FILLED WITH LIFE-BOOSTING INGREDIENTS FOR TRUE NOURISHMENT
The Persian poet and scholar Rumi once wrote, “Lovely days don’t come to you, you should walk to them.” An apt message during a time when it can feel that the little things we do have no impact. But just the opposite is true. Each decision we make throughout the day has significance in our lives, the lives around us, and for the planet we share. That’s why the morning is a fitting time to both recognize and harness the power in our choices—be it a simple breathing meditation or eating life-giving plants that allow our bodies, hearts, and minds to thrive.
Below, some favorite ways to feed ourselves each morning. Any of them allow us to walk into our day feeling truly nourished and nurtured.
A Powerful Start That Feels Like Dessert (Featuring Metabolism Super Powder)

A Skin Genius’s Preferred Breakfast

Garnish with compote, mint, banana, or cacao nibs.

A Comfort Food With A Healthy Boost
This soul-soothing loaf is a plant-based, gluten-free, dairy-free version that trades processed flour and sugar for protein-dense oats, almond meal, coconut palm sugar, and raw honey, plus chopped nuts for textural delight.
A Warming Cuppa That Is A Blessing To Our Skin
