As many of you know, eggs for breakfast can get old quickly. But so can feeling like you need to take a nap two hours after you wake up and eat!

Here’s one of my go-to recipes that my kids love…


  • Half a boiled/steamed sweet potato; OR roughly half a cup of butternut, acorn or kabocha squash; OR 1-2 bananas
  • 3-4 pastured eggs
  • 1 heaping tablespoon of nut butter; OR 2 tbsp hemp seeds, flax seeds, and/or sesame seeds


  • Blend and spoon silver-dollar size dollops into medium heat coconut oil. They cook quickly!
  • Top with ghee and berries, cinnamon, and a dash of maple syrup.

This serves one adult and two kiddos, but the recipe is very forgiving, so don’t worry too much about the precision of the measurements.Enjoy!
