If you like it, save it!

Save and organize all of the stuff you love in one place.

Got it!

If you like something…

Click the heart, it's called favoriting. Favorite the stuff you like.

Got it!

What if we told you... that you could learn to make this? Or this? That you could make pasta dough like a chef, and then eat it while sipping a fine cocktail from a fine glass set on a fine tablecloth? That you could dabble in squid ink and fermentation, keep a SCOBY alive? Brew beer? That you could achieve immense kitchen success... just like us?

The secret to our success: Breakfast! Everybody knows it's the most important meal of the day. And while we can't promise that any of the recommended meals below will give you the power (or the desire) to stuff a squash inside a squash, as we ingeniously did, they might just give you the boost you're looking for.

Bowl of yogurt (whole milk or coconut) with fruit.

The ultimate in why-didn't-i-think-of-that healthful breakfast options.

Option to incorporate breakfast into your morning yoga routine, saving you time: Choose a shallow bowl (hand-crafted recommended) and position it between your shoulder-width-apart hands. Proceed with surya namaskara, lapping the yogurt from your chaturanga before sliding into upward-facing dog. Added fruit recommended for advanced yogis only.

$200 smoothie.

Think of it as an investment in the day. (Besides, you have to spend money to make money, right?) We've heard there's a great recipe on this website! Alternatively, this kale one, by us of course, is pretty good, too.

Those two-ingredient egg-banana pancakes. But waffled!

You're on top of the trends, right? (Success depends on it.) You can waffle anything.

Overnight oats with chia seeds, flax seeds, cashew cream, maca powder, bee pollen.

Make breakfast while you sleep! Plus, fiber is said to help with cognitive health, so why not really pack it in there? Cashew cream means no dairy to weigh you down. A stirred-in teaspoon of expensive, tuber-derived powder said to increase stamina and reduce stress—among other things? Can't hurt. And bee pollen? As the greats put it: Duh.
