Healthy Breakfast Menu

Updated on July 3, 2012
Source

When people ask me how I make healthy choices, or how I lost weight, I always tell them about my secret weapon. Breakfast. So many people skip the most important meal of the day, and it saddens me because breakfast is my favorite! My theory is that when I start the day fresh and healthy, I'm more likely to end the day fresh and healthy. If I take the time to make conscientiously good decisions from the get-go, I am more likely to follow through with my eating choices later. I will never skip breakfast. It helps get your metabolism going, it gives you energy, and if you want those carbs, eat them in the morning so you can burn them off all day. Here is my menu of breakfast awesomeness.

A Week of Healthy Breakfast!

Always eat something. I'm never terribly starving in the mornings, but I eat a light breakfast daily. These are some of my choices! Like I said, starting early in the day with healthy choices helps to lead to healthier choices during the rest of the day!

Meal Option 1

  • 1 cup of cereal (something that is high in fiber) and Skim Milk. I always stick to the serving sizes with cereal. If not, I could seriously eat an entire box by myself. I'm not afraid to admit it! And high fiber cereals help keep you regular :)
  • 1 cup super low fat vanilla yogurt with blueberries. Yay antioxidants!
  • 1 cup of coffee, BLACK. (It took awhile for me to get used to, but it's one of the healthiest ways to drink it, and in moderation it helps boost your metabolism!)
  • 1 BIG glass of water

Meal Option 2

  • Egg whites on wheat toast (2 pieces)
  • 1 apple
  • 1 cup of coffee, Black
  • 1 cup of yogurt with fruit
  • 1 BIG glass of water

Meal Option 3

  • 1 cup of oatmeal with cinnamon. (Stick with the real stuff w/o all the extra stuff added)
  • 1 banana
  • 1 piece of toast with butter (I use real butter that's made with olive oil. I go with whole food over anything I can't pronounce any day of the week. I Can't Believe it's Not Butter doesn't cut it. Read up on your food. It's important to know what actually goes in your body!)
  • 1 cup coffee
  • 1 BIG glass of water

Meal Option 4

  • 1 lowfat, multi grain bagel with fruit preserves or honey
  • 1 cup yogurt with fruit/berries
  • 1 cup cereal with skim milk
  • 1 cup coffee
  • 1 BIG glass of water

Meal Option 5

  • Fruit salad
  • HEALTHY Granola Bar (Choose wisely.)
  • Egg whites with Salsa
  • 1 cup of coffee
  • 1 BIG glass of water

Meal Option 6

  • Turkey Bacon (recommended serving size only)
  • Egg White Omelet (Veggies only, no cheese)
  • Mango or other fruit
  • 1 cup of coffee
  • 1 BIG glass of water

Meal Option 7

  • Low-fat Blueberry pancakes (3, no syrup, no eggs. I use the heart healthy Bisquick mix! & I use extra berries and make a puree to put on top. Add blueberries and a little honey over the stove)
  • 1 piece of fruit
  • 1 cup of coffee
  • 1 BIG glass of water

      These are very good ideas for breakfast time! I have eaten breakfast all my life, taught by my so smart grandmother! I would need to make some small changes to adapt to your ideas, but I really liked them! Congratulations and welcome to HubPages. Voted up, useful and interesting.

      How about filling out your profile? There's no personal information on yours and I missed it!

      I really don't skip breakfast, but sometimes have to rush to work. Anything you eat at breakfast is better than going hungry. These are some great options to have a fast breakfast. Thanks for sharing these ideas. Rated up and useful.
