One of my favorite things to do on the weekend is to take the time to make myself something special in the morning - usually a breakfast that I can sit and enjoy and eat with a fork and knife. I love my green smoothies, but it's nice to switch it up on the weekends, to take the time to actually chew my food.
This "Superhuman" breakfast is my new weekend morning go-to. Created by Laura Hames Franklin (learn more about Laura here - she's an awesome coach and posts videos everyday!), this breakfast packs in protein, greens, healthy fats AND (get ready for it) natural probiotics in the form of sauerkraut.
You may be thinking YUCK - sauerkraut?? For breakfast?? Yup! Sauerkraut and other fermented veggies are some of the best foods for your digestive system. I've mentioned my love for kraut before, and if you follow me on Instagram, you've seen that I usually incorporate it into my meals (like this, this and this). I challenge you to try it out - there are so many different flavors of sauerkraut and fermented veggies out there, so experiment! You will find kraut in the refrigerator section and it should contain veggies, salt, and water, and whatever herbs but NO VINEGAR. If you really don't like the taste, try mashing kraut with avocado (it mellows out the flavor).
Here's the basic formula for the Superhuman Breakfast:
Greens + Root Veggies (sweet potato, squash, etc) + Protein (egg, tempeh for vegans) + Kraut
