Since it’s the most important meal of the day, we’ve decided to kick off our Fresh Start Recipe Contests with Breakfast. We’re giving away a box of Skin & Total Body Supplements for the best Perricone-inspired healthy breakfast. Remember to ‘like’, ‘pin’, or ‘tweet’ the recipes you like best to help vote.
This innovative, Start-Fresh inspired breakfast comes to us from Ashley B.
Prep Time: 5 Minutes Cooking Time: 15-20 Minutes Serves: 2
Quinoa Cake Ingredients:
- 1/3 cup organic white quinoa (makes about 1 1/4 cups)
- 2 organic omega 3 eggs, beaten
- A handful of organic spinach
- A handful of organic kale, de-stemmed and chopped
- 2-3 organic broccoli florets, chopped
- A chunk of organic red onion, diced
- A pinch of pink Himalayan salt, freshly ground pepper, curry powder and kelp seasoning (or a seasoning blend of your liking)
Italian Chutney Ingredients:
- 1 cup organic basil, loosely packed, chopped
- 1 cup organic cherry tomatoes, sliced
- 1/2 cup Daiya Shredded “Mozzarella”, organic Pecorino-Romano cheese or organic feta cheese
- 1-2 organic garlic cloves, smashed and minced
- Organic, virgin coconut oil for sautéing and spreading on quinoa cake
Note: Preparing quinoa ahead of time should cut cooking time in half.
- Cook quinoa for 10 minutes or until fluffy
- Add all of the quinoa cake ingredients into the pot and mix
- Spread the ingredients into a sauté pan and cover with a lid, cooking until cake binding eggs are firm (you can also split the mix into 2 cakes)
- While the quinoa cake is cooking, prepare the chutney by sautéing the ingredients, garlic first, in the coconut oil until desired doneness and/or cheese is melted
- Spread a bit of coconut oil on cake and top with chutney, enjoy!
Dr. Perricone fans know that he recommends an antioxidant and protein-rich breakfast such as:
- An egg white and fresh vegetable omelet or a serving of grilled salmon.
- Low-fat Greek Yogurt
- Cantaloupe, apples, pears, berries, grapefruit or honeydew slices.
- Slow-cooked (not-instant) oatmeal with berries and cinnamon.
And since it’s the most important meal of the day, we’ve decided to kick off our Fresh Start Recipe Contests with Breakfast. We’re giving away a box of Skin & Total Body Supplements for the best Perricone-inspired healthy breakfast.

A big thanks to all who participated in our Healthier Holiday Pinterest Contest. The recipes, healthy cooking tips and food substitution pins were creative and inspirational. We were particularly inspired by one winner, Katie S. of Tampa, FL, the wife of an active-duty Army Officer who credits Perricone MD products with “making her skin look fabulous when he returns from his deployments.”
