And in case you don't have time for any of the recipes below, here are some quick sunrise staples:

- Overnight oats! Raw & oh so good for you. Just fill 1/4 a mason jar with raw oats, fill halfway with almond milk or soy milk, and stuff the rest with any combo of fruits & nuts. I love strawberry coconut as well as peanut butter banana.

- Peanut butter banana toast

- Banana coffee almond milk smoothie. Checks all the boxes. Fiber? check. Protein? check. Caffeine? check.

- Avocado toast + olive oil (+/- egg). Just  smear 1/2 a ripe avocado on toast, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, and sprinkle sea salt on top!

- Acai bowl. Just make sure its unsweetened or else you're packing on the calories. Add granola, banana, coconut yogurt and feel like you're in Rio.

- Fresh herb omelet. Add a little onion & garlic to a hot pan, whisk a couple eggs with unsweetened soy or almond milk, pour in the eggs, and sprinkle on fresh herbs (dill, oregano, basil..)

- Coconut yogurt granola parfait. Use a granola that uses olive oil (no butter) and agave or maple syrup (no sugar).
