Menu Monday: An Autumn-Inspired Breakfast

FALL IN LOVE WITH THIS AUTUMN-INSPIRED BREAKFAST

 

Eating clean is truly about noticing what Mother Nature provides us with seasonally. With Fall’s cooler weather and brightly colored leaves comes cole crops, root vegetables and some tasty tree bearing fruits like apples and pears. Instead of fresh fruit and vegetable summer salads, we begin to crave warm, hearty foods that comfort (and hopefully nourish) the body and soul. That’s exactly why this healthy alternative to a staple cool-weather breakfast is a must try for all of us looking to embrace what the Earth has so graciously given us!
