OK so it is super cold here in FL. Well, its 60 degrees, but that’s freezing as far as i’m concerned!

What’s super yummy on a cold day? SOUP!

Recently I saw one of those ridiculously delicious viral Facebook videos, where you see the entire recipe unfold before you. Then you see the finished product, and most of the time say to yourself “I need that NOW.”

Well that happened with a stupid, creamy potato soup. So how can you make something so delicious, but not screw up your 21 DF meal plan?! Try this….

21 Day Fix Breakfast Ideas

I NEED variety. I cannot eat the same thing all the time. But with the 21 Day Fix it’s super easy to switch things up. I also LOVE breakfast. So to keep breakfast interesting, I’ve tried these recipes, and all are amazing! Check them out…

1. Whole wheat toast w/ peanut butter. (You could also use sun butter, or almond butter-both equally amazing)

I also like to add some fruit like bananas or strawberries, or both!

2. Steel cut oats w/ fruit

3. Eggs (or egg whites) and turkey bacon

You could add some extra veggies to your eggs as well. I like to add some peppers!

4. Whole wheat waffle w/ fruit

And of course, Shake-o! Probably the best thing you could ave for breakfast.

It’s easy to add different things to your shake-o or just drink it with water! I prefer unsweetened vanilla almond milk.
