Simple, Healthy Breakfast Recipes That’ll Leave Your Mouth Watering

On a chilly fall morning, the last thing you may want to do is crawl out from under your warm covers. And the thought of stepping into your cold kitchen to prepare a full breakfast? Forget it!

But we’re taking the dread out of your morning meal prep with three simple, nourishing breakfasts from the talented cooks at and we added some extra autumn-inspired deliciousness to warm you up and fill your belly when it’s chilly outside.

1. Crockpot Steel Cut Oats & Butternut Squash

Nothing says cozy like a crockpot meal! This recipe will not only fill your home with the wonderful smells of fall but even better, it'll do all the work while you're sleeping.


  • 2 cups of organic butternut squash (peeled, reseeded, and chopped)
  • 1 cup of organic, non-GMO steel cut oats
  • 1/4 cup of organic maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. Celtic Sea Salt
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp. ground ginger
  • 3 cups water
  • Optional toppings: Pecans, almonds, full-fat coconut milk

Add all the ingredients, except the optional toppings, into your slow cooker. Give it a quick stir. Then, cook it on low for 6 to 8 hours, or on high for 5 to 7 hours. The recipe is done once the oats are soft and the butternut squash is tender.

Once done, use a large spatula to mash up the butternut squash. Then give it one final stir before serving with your toppings.

Tip: The butternut squash will provide a natural sweetness, so feel free to adjust or leave out the maple syrup.

2. Sweet Potato and Spinach Breakfast Skillet

This veggie-packed breakfast is perfect if you need a quick fill-up while on the go. Prep the ingredients the night before, so you can whip up this hearty breakfast in less than 30 minutes!


  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 sweet potato, diced
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 1 bell pepper, diced (you can use any color!)
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 cup of spinach
  • 1/2 cup of uncooked quinoa
  • 1 cup of vegetable broth
  • 4 eggs prepared in your favorite way

Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-level heat. Add in all the veggies, except the spinach. Toss, cover, and cook for about 10 minutes (or until the sweet potatoes are a smidge soft). If you like your food a bit more spicy, you can toss in a poblano chili!

Then, add the spinach and cook until it’s wilted down. This will take just a minute or two. Stir in the quinoa, add in the broth, and start to simmer. Cover and cook for about 10-15 minutes, or until the quinoa is cooked.

Top the veggie skillet with your eggs and sprinkle with a little salt and pepper!

Tip: Throw in a sliced avocado for an extra creamy touch!

3. Oh My Pumpkin Smoothie

As you know, pumpkin is the humble mascot for the fall season! This healthy smoothie recipe is jam-packed with all of your fall favorites. Plus, the added jolt of coffee will give you an extra pep in your step.


  • 1/2 cup of pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup of raw milk or your favorite nut milk
  • 1/2 cup of coffee
  • 1 frozen and chopped banana
  • 2 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 tsp. of pumpkin pie spice

Blend all the ingredients until it’s smooth and creamy. If you want a more intense pumpkin or spice flavor, add in more pumpkin pie spice or throw in an extra dash of cinnamon.

Tip: If you didn’t freeze your banana beforehand, that’s okay! Just add 1/2 cup of ice.

Happy Patients

I have had back issues most of my life. Since starting treatments with Dr Greg I have had no more issues. It's such a relief to be able to be physical at the high level I want to be. I am able to maintain wellness by seeing Dr Greg on a regular basis. Thank you Dr Greg!!

Hello! I just want to say that you are truly a healer! After leaving your office last Monday, I was more able to breathe, truly breathe - after having suffered all weekend to take a deep breath due to a "rib out of place" OK - if you say so....all I know is that, though I continued to have a bit of pain in my upper back and neck for a day or two, I could take wonderful, glorious deep breaths thanks to your treatment. Thanks again for all you do! Even if I do make many sound affects while you are treating me - "OUCH!!! Hmmmph!! Ughhh!! Really???" I truly appreciate your healing touch....


I have had Parkinson's Disease for 8 years.  I have developed arthritis in my back and hips. The stiffness of the Parkinson's and the arthritis has caused me a lot of pain. Because of that unrelenting pain I was unable to exercise. Exercise is an important part of pain management for Parkinson's.  Since I have been seeing Dr. Krapf I am feeling much better and his care has allowed me to begin exercising again, which has improved my overall well being. In the past I have been treated by physical therapists and orthopedists. Dr. Krapf's chiropractic manipulations have had an amazing impact on my health and happiness. I highly recommend Dr. Krapf to anyone who needs excellent chiropractic care and the many alternative therapies he offers. I would say he is magical!

When my friend received excellent care from Dr. Krapf, she recommended him to me. I have had gastrointestinal problems for nearly 50 years that have recently been diagnosed with celiac disease with lactose intolerance. All that, including unrelieved stress had made me unhappy and unhealthy. Today I am a different person with the help of Dr. Greg. The Gastro issues are practically nonexistent, my stress levels have plummeted, and my body is changing. I am so grateful for Dr. Greg and his healing hands.

Our family have been patients of Krapf chiropractic for a few decades. We have several success stories archived. The most recent event involves our youngest son who is completing his senior year of high school. He has been a patient of Krapf Chiropractic (KCA) since birth. He has been an avid soccer player since the age of four and has sustained numerous injuries over the years. Dr. Krapf has successfully assisted in every recovery.

Most recently, he began complaining of his feet hurting while playing soccer. Both feet hurt - particularly the balls of his feet while running and cutting. He came to Dr. Greg with his complaint as this was seriously affecting his game. Dr. Greg evaluated the situation and decided a foot scan should be done. The finding was dropped arches. My son was fitted for orthotics. They arrived within days and he wore these as directed. Within a few short weeks he is now playing full games pain free.


I first called Krapf Chiropractic when my back was so bad that I couldn't get up off the floor. It's been a blessing to have Dr. Greg help me with my overall wellness and health! I find this to be a place where you are not a number and everyone cares. Mollie is always cheerful and reminds me to come. Erin is always smiling and helps relax me when I'm in pain. I would not be functioning if I did not have Krapf Chiropractic to keep me going. As I get older my appreciation deepens, especially when I see people around me who are suffering with back problems. If they only knew how helpful this is. I believe Dr. Greg treats the person not the symptoms. Thank you

I've been lucky to have exceptional health care from the beginning. At the beginning, seventy-six-plus years ago, Hugh Rodgers brought me into the world in mother and dad's second-floor bedroom in our dairy farm home. Hugh's son, Hugh, Jr., practiced with his dad and beyond caring for my parents, he, also, cared for hundreds of others and me. Roughly forty years ago, a friend suggested I make an appointment with Richard Krapf for help with back-pain. Richard treated the pain that, often, was debilitating, and on Richard's death, his son, Greg became the second second generation to help me from one place to another. I'm grateful to Hugh, Hugh, Richard and, perhaps, most of all, to Greg.
