Growing up, my family had a tradition of cinnamon rolls for Christmas breakfast. I started noticing feeling a bit sluggish and sick on Christmas morning once I became an adult – a huge blood sugar spike first thing in the morning does not make for a very nice Christmas! Then, after having a child diagnosed with Celiac Disease and subsequently finding and loving the Trim Healthy Mama way of eating, I started making something savory for Christmas breakfast. I mix up the ingredients the night before and put the food in the oven before we get started with the festivities (and with five kids, the festivities take awhile!). That way I can enjoy time with the family instead of being stuck in the kitchen.
I put together a quick list of some great, healthy breakfasts for Christmas morning that will please the whole family AND be kind to your waistline, while providing good fuel and energy for the whole day. I also have a full Christmas Day menu collection here if you need more ideas! Merry Christmas!
