Hi, I'm Kim


Whether you prefer sweet to spicy, there are a lot of ways to step-up your breakfast game. As someone who gravitates toward convenient breakfast options, it’s all too easy to throw a slice of cold pizza in the microwave or eat leftovers for breakfast. As I’ve grown older, however, I have learned how important it is to fuel my body with nutritional foods.

To start your morning off right, skip the plain bagel or butter and toast for a meal packed with fiber, protein, and healthy fats. If you are truly strapped for time, you can always stock your fridge with a few to-go meals from Urban Remedy. Keep reading for five of my go-to breakfast recipes that are easy, healthy, and delicious. These recipes contain powerhouse superfoods, including avocado, peanut butter, greek yogurt, oatmeal, and berries.

1. Spicy Avocado Toast

Avocado is rich in vitamins C, E, K, and B-6, as well as riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium, and potassium. If you are not a sriracha fan, you can add a fried egg, garlic, or tomatoes on top of the mashed avocado.


  • 1 slice of whole wheat bread, toasted

  • 1/2 of a California Avocado, mashed

  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon of sriracha

  • Squeeze of lemon

  • Fresh cracked black pepper & sea salt


2. Peanut Butter & Banana Toast

As a kid, I grew up eating peanut butter and banana toast nearly every morning. I was never a big fan of eggs, so toast was my best friend. Adding a sprinkle of cinnamon and a drizzle of honey takes this toast to the next level. Peanut butter also has a lot of health benefits. It’s high in protein and rich in potassium, magnesium, Vitamin E, and antioxidants.


  • 1 slice whole-wheat bread, toasted

  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter 

  • 1 small banana, sliced

  • Sprinkle of cinnamon

  • Drizzle of honey


3. Greek Yogurt Parfait

Swap regular yogurt for greek yogurt, then add a cup of fruit, a cup of granola, and a drizzle of honey. Greek yogurt has twice the protein and half the sugar of regular yogurt. It’s also packed with healthy probiotics, as well as calcium, potassium, zinc, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12. 


  • 2 cups Greek yogurt

  • 1 cups blueberries, chopped

  • 1 cup banana, chopped

  • 1 cup granola

  • Drizzle of honey


4. Oatmeal with Banana & Cocoa

Who says oatmeal has to taste bland? Next time you make oatmeal, add slices of banana, cocoa power, vanilla extract, and honey for a little extra sweetness. Oatmeal is filled with fiber and protein to keep you full until lunch. This whole grain is also filled with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.


  • 1/2 cup rolled oats

  • 3/4 cup of water or milk

  • 1 over-ripe banana

  • 1/2 cup blueberries

  • 1 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder

  • 1/8 tsp salt

  • 1/4 tsp of vanilla extract

  • 1/4 tsp chia seeds

  • Drizzle of honey

5. Tri-Berry Tropical Smoothie

You can’t go wrong with a fruit smoothie. Start with your favorite fruit, add a thickener, and choose a liquid. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3. Fresh fruit is filled with fiber, antioxidants, and healthy sugars to keep you fueled.


  • 1/2 cup frozen strawberries

  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberries

  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries

  • 1/2 cup pineapple

  • 1 1/2 cups of orange juice or milk

  • 1/2 c. yogurt
