Ditch the Box and Make a Healthy Breakfast!

Where’s the free toy that used to come in breakfast cereal?

It’s not the only thing missing from the box these days.

We’ve been duped to think that breakfast variety equates to many different colors of cereal boxes festooned with various cartoon characters or health claims.

In reality, all those hundreds of different boxes contain strikingly similar ingredients and probably don’t do much for our bodies in terms of varying our nutritional intake. They certainly don’t give us a leg up on our 5-a-day fruits and vegetables, don’t offer healthy and satiating fats, and often include questionable ingredients that aren’t usually found in an average kitchen or in nature.

If you feel like breakfast from scratch is unattainable, like real food takes too long for your busy lifestyle, like your mornings are forever stuck at Cereal 1.0 – I’ve got an upgrade for you.

Healthy Breakfast Ideas - Grain-free Porridge

Packed with over 50 family-friendly, very doable real food recipes, The Healthy Breakfast Book: Cereal Free Secrets to Starting the Day with Real Food is your solution to processed food mornings and that 10 a.m. energy crash.

The book starts with 10 Secrets to Real Food Breakfast Success, key foundational habits you can put in place today, and the tips to keep your kitchen running smoothly don’t stop until the real food company meal plans and breakfast hosting philosophies 154 pages later.

The well-known Kitchen Stewardship technique of answering all your FAQs before you even need to wonder if something can be substituted in a recipe (and more) will not disappoint.

The recipes are nearly all gluten-free and nut-free and at least two-thirds are either dairy-free, egg-free or grain-free, and the book even includes another 50+ resources online to help you achieve real food independence.

If you are looking for many of the ingredients needed in this book, and not finding them because you don’t have a Whole Foods in your area, definitely check out Thrive Market. They have a huge selection of items like coconut flour and even some yummy soaked granola when you need a quick fix. You get a 30-day free trial but it doesn’t start until you place your first order so you can browse to your heart’s content. When you’re ready you’ll receive 15% off your first order, no coupon required.

What People are Saying

I asked readers to test out recipes for me so I can assure quality and usability in this premium content. Not all the recipes were a hit (and a few were cut from the book after feedback), but some folks had some mighty nice things to say:

on the Homemade Cereal recipe:

“We did the milk test today: Success! My husband, who is a cereal lover and sad because we don’t have it much anymore, said this works well. In fact, he specifically asked me to thank you for this idea, because it means he’ll probably get ‘cereal’ more often now!”

— Rob and Kathy, recipe testers

on the Pumpkin Spice Grain-free Waffles:

“Just made these this morning and I was very impressed! (So was my husband, who is not totally on board with coconut flour products and usually opts to make a traditional white flour version of whatever I’m making, and he doesn’t like cashews, either. He’s pretty critical of his food, so I was surprised, and really happy, that he likes these!)

Very tasty, spices were perfect, and the texture turns out better, I think, than any of the other grain-free waffles I’ve tried. Definitely better than other pumpkin ones which are usually soft.”

–Kimberly, recipe tester

And such a sweet note about the KS eBooks in general:

“You’re the only blogger from whom I buy every single ebook published. Most of the ebooks I have are from bundle sales. Yours are the only ones worth spending the money on to buy separately.”

– Rob C., a reader

What About Allergies?

The Healthy Breakfast Book is very adaptable and fairly allergy-friendly. The official breakdown is:

  • Gluten-free: 49 recipes (82%)
  • Grain-free: 33 recipes (55%)
  • Dairy-free: 37 recipes (62%)
  • Egg-free: 36 recipes (60%)
  • Nut-free: 45 recipes (75%)

Note: Only about 21 of the recipes in the book are also found for free online, less than half, and most of those are updated and enhanced with new options. It’s important to me to make any paid product worth it for my readers, but many of my favorite recipes are already shared for free – so it’s a balance.

Satisfaction Guaranteed

If you are unhappy with The Healthy Breakfast Book for any reason, including allergies that prevent you from making too many recipes, I will provide a full refund, no questions asked.

9 Bites of Conversation So Far

  1. Kathy Hutton says

    Just ate the Tropical Breakfast porridge. (minus a couple of ingredients) The free d/l, it was like eating banana pudding for breakfast! Really good! I had my doubts but I am happy and full now!

  2. says

    I just made the Tropical Breakfast Porridge for breakfast. I pureed 2 apples in my food processor with the bananas and it turned out beautifully. Coconut flour is very filling and I am definitely full! Thank you for a new recipe to add to my breakfast rotation :)

  3. Rachel says

    Your recipe for making cold breakfast cereal out of properly prepared muffins was genius! I took failed zucchini muffins (made with less sugar and I subbed homemade plain yogurt for the milk, which made them extra tart) dehydrated them, as per the instructions in this book, and my kids were gobbling them up! You saved me from throwing food away and my kids got to have veggies for breakfast. Next, I tried making 2 beet-banana breads (1 with cocoa powder) and they were a hit! I am so excited to eat cold cereal again! (We do cereal Sunday, too. With little ones, it is hard to get to church on time, if I cook breakfast.) I can’t wait to try the rest of the recipes – squash everything & leftover mashed potato cakes! This book is definitely great for someone who is trying to make real food breakfasts, on a budget. I highly recommend.
