3 Breakfasts to Conquer Anxiety and Amp Up Energy
Updated: Dec 12, 2021
Ugh, breakfast AGAIN. It’s like brushing your teeth…HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO DO THIS FOR GOD’S SAKE?
Plus, you wanna snooze 10 more times before you have to ACTUALLY get out of bed, but nooooo, you have to go make breakfast!
So you skip it… UNTIL…
10 am hits and you literally CANNOT comprehend ANYTHING and people are speaking to you and you’re physically there, but words and thoughts just can’t formulate.
But you’re at work!
You gotta perform!
Soooo you scour everything around you for some aggressively unhealthy carbohydrates like a sewer rat and end up shoving down a donut, and THEN feel dizzy counting down the hours until you can go home and go to sleep.
Only 9 more hours left. Not painful at all!
Great use of a day!
The breakfast struggle is SO real.
I’m about to blow your breakfast game right OUT the water and into the most productive days of your LIVES!
These three breakfasts are:
Quick - you can make them all in 5 minutes or less.
Extremely balanced so they help balance your hormones to keep you calm while also providing clean energy to amp you up in a good way!
Have brain foods that help keep your mind sharp and prevent hunger and sweet cravings that make you lethargic and angsty.
Let’s get into it!
Go-Getter Goddess Smoothie
Prep time: 5 minutes.
Ingredients: Spinach leaves, ripe banana, strawberries, ice, choice of nut milk, chia seeds, avocado.
Put it all in a blender, blend, enjoy!
Add a date if you’d like it sweeter. Experiment with Kale instead of spinach. Top it off with Goji berries, or Bee Polen for extra superfood power. Add protein powder if you’re a protein junkie like me.
The Pancake that’s Not a Pancake
Prep time: 5 minutes.
Ingredients: A ripe banana, an egg, a dash of cinnamon, a pinch of salt, almond butter. Optional: hemp seeds.
Mash the banana in a bowl. Crack the egg on top of it. Mix them together to form a batter. Add some cinnamon and a pinch of salt. Pour into a skillet on medium heat. Flip after each side is browned. Add some almond butter while it’s warm so it melts on top. Top with some help seeds for extra omega 3’s, your brain will thank you!
Cake Batter For Breakfast - Really! But not really, but kind of!
Prep time: 5 minutes + Overnight in the fridge.
Ingredients: Quick oats, chocolate protein powder, chia seeds, flax seeds, nut milk of your choice. Optional: Golden raisins, honey crisp apples, sliced almonds.
Make this one the night before. Or prep a bunch for the week.
Pour some quick oats into a mason jar or a bowl that has an airtight covering. Add a little chocolate protein powder, a dash of chia seeds, and a couple of flax seeds. Optional to add some golden raisins and some finely chopped apple chunks.
Then add your favorite nut milk or water, until it’s the consistency of cake batter (it will thicken overnight too). Put in the fridge!
In the morning when you're ready to dig in, top with some crisp sliced almonds, yummmmyyyy!!! You can legit eat this on your commute while listening to my audiobook. Best day ever.

Food is one thing that plays a big role in whether we live in a natural state of anxiety or a natural state of calm.
