A Week of Breakfast (Quick, Easy and Delish Ones!)

A Week of Healthy

Eating well has to start first thing in the morning.  I always start my day with 20 oz of water, usually with lemon, and a cup of black coffee with a huge, healthy breakfast.  Mornings tend to be tight between getting my workout in and getting the kids dressed, fed, and ready for the day, so my breakfasts need to be quick and simple.  Here is one week of my favorite breakfasts:

 

My Go-To Scramble
3/4 Cup Egg Whites
2 oz Lean Ham
1 Cup Steamed Broccoli
1/4 Cup Lowfat Cheese.

Country Breakfast
2 Fried Eggs
1 Cup Sauteed Spinach and Mushrooms
4 oz Sweet Potato (measured cooked)

 

Sweet and Savory Morning

1 TBSP Peanut Butter
1 Medium Apple, Chopped

Blueberry Smoothie
1 Scoop Vanilla Protein
1/2 Cup Frozen Spinach
1/2 Cup Blueberries
1 TBSP Ground Flax
A Sprinkle of Cinnamon

 

 

Gluten Free Breakfast Sammie
2 Toasted Gluten Free Waffles
1/2 Cup Liquid Egg Whites
1 Slice 2% Cheese
2 Turkey Sausage Links (serve sausage, cheese, and eggs between waffles)

 

Chia Oatmeal muesli-750365_1920
1/3 cup Oats (measured raw, add water to cook)
1 TBSP Chia Seeds
1 Scoop Protein Powder
A Sprinkle of Cinnamon.

 

Cottage Cheese Mix Up
3/4 Cup 1% Cottage Cheese
1/2 cup Blackberries
A Sprinkle of Cinnamon
1/2 ounce Raw Almonds

You will see a few things happening here: 1. There are five ingredients or less.  I can’t think in the morning so less is more for me.  2.  There is always a protein source.  Always.  Every damn day.  It is that important.  3.  There is a protein, carb, and fat in each meal.  Start balanced like this and you have a base for the rest of the day!  What are your favorite breakfast meals?

Bonus Tip:  In a hurry?  Running late?  Blend a scoop pf protein powder in your coffee for a delicious latte-like breakfast that is high in protein (and caffeine!)
