5 Secrets To A Best Breakfast: Chickpea Sunflower Bread Recipe

by Megan Telpner

Breakfasts can get tricky. Somewhere in the mix, we seem to have come to a universal industrialized nation decision that the following are okay breakfasts:

  • A donut or muffin and a coffee.
  • Toast or a bagel and cheese.
  • Processed GMO corn converted into flakes and served with antibiotic rich pasteurized cow’s milk.
  • Processed GMO soy powder mixed with a banana, orange juice  and yogurt in a blender.
  • A cocktail of processed goodies in bar form wrapped in plastic.
  • Nothing at all.

These are not breakfasts and will not sustain your energy, brainpower, or health for very long. We want our breakfast, the first drop of oil in the tank to fuel us the whole morning long. Consider your breakfast the basic foundation of your day. You need it to stay strong.

Meghan’s 5 Secrets to A Best Breakfast

  1. It is unquestionably super delicious.
  2. It contains an awesome source of good fats to fuel the brain and nervous system.
  3. It contains a great source of protein to balance the blood sugar (ladies- this will also help keep the testosterone at bay to avoid increased growth of unsightly massive chin hairs)
  4. It contains soluble and insoluble fibre to feed and nourish the cells of your intestinal tract and help you have a super wicked morning poop.
  5. It is eaten with enough time to bite, chew, and swallow. Three separate and distinct actions.

On that note, I created this amazing Chickpea Sunflower Bread. Rich in protein, good fat and fibre, it’s also grain and nut free. Most importantly it’s super delicious and can be ready in 20 minutes.

    This seems like a great recipe for us CrossFit fanatics. It would really help if you had a format for printing the recipes. For now, I have to write them all down by hand. How about a book?

    This sounds great, but just so you know… this recipe is not grain free! corn is a grain. But omit the corn and you’ve got a winner :)
