A No-Sugar Breakfast Of Champions

These days, the saying “breakfast of champions” isn't exactly a brag – instead, it's often used in jest, as a tongue-in-cheek admittance to eating something epically terrible in the morning (like a plate of donuts, birthday cake, left-over pizza … ugh, yes, we've all been there). But the fact remains that true “breakfasts of champions” do exist: ones that are so energizing, so clean, so packed with nutrients, and so empoweringly satisfying, they really do make you feel like a superhero. These qualities are the epitome of superfood breakfasts!

Of course, superfood breakfasts come in all shapes, sizes, and flavors, and actively pursue nutrient density and balance. And with such a broad group of our friends trying to reduce their sugar content, we wanted to create a savory breakfast that removed sugar from the equation entirely.

But we didn't stop there.

Also added to the checklist was for the dish to be free of common allergens, crave-ably delicious, plant-based and easy to digest, and able to be dressed up or down with all kinds of nuts, seeds, and whatever vegetables you may have lying around. You know ... champion-worthy.

We picked some of our favorite ingredients, and this is what we came up with. (It's so easy, and SO good.)
