A lot of my clients come to me with nutritional questions, and I always start with breakfast. I believe that a great breakfast gets your day started right, and can set the tone for your nutritional choices to come. However, not all breakfasts are created equal so these are a few of the ideas I have come up with over time for great breakfasts.
1.) Take a coffee mug and brush the inside with olive oil. add two eggs, cheese, and chopped veggies. mix and microwave for 1-2 min. enjoy.
2.) In a blender combine, 1 serving plain greek yogurt, 1 tbs peanut butter, 1/2 cup frozen berries, 1 cup spinach (you won’t taste it), and water to desired thickness. Blend and enjoy.
3.) Plain greek yogurt and fruit
4.) Whole wheat toast with nut butter.
Not as Quick Breakfasts
1.) The night before, boil 1.5 cups water. Add 1/2 cup steel cut oats and boil for one min. Turn off heat and cover. In the morning the oats will be cooked and you can reheat in the microwave and add your choice of toppings. No sugar though!
2.)Dice 1 apple and 2 stalks of celery and enjoy with nut butter.
3.) Combine plain greek yogurt, oats, nuts, and dried fruit and let sit overnight in the fridge.
Remember, that breakfast can make or break your day. Enjoy any of these recipes with black coffee or unsweetened green tea and a multivitamin to round it out. Hope these motivate you to get up and eat in the morning!
