Every now and then you crave some variety in your menu, but if you are coming up short on ideas then this might be the article you need. I really like these ideas and some are fast aproaching my new favorites after finding this video from Mischa Barros on youtube.com. Here are the highlights.
1. Banana, Egg Pancakes with Strawberries
This is an excellent source of vitamins and minerals and is very balance nutritionally. Not to mention they were made in a blender so quick and easy to together in the morning.
Carbs – 33g. Fat – 10g. Protein – 14g. Fiber – 5g.
2. Hard Boiled Egg Filled Pita Wrap With Cream Cheese
This is a healthy savory breakfast that is easy to throw together even more so then the previous one. You will get long lasting energy from this meal
Carbs – 29g. Fat – 16g. Protein – 21g. Fiber – 4g.
3. Greek Yogurt With Granola Banana & Strawberries
This is more along the lines of a sweet breakfast but because of the fat and protein in this dish it can still give you good energy. To keep the processed foods to a minimum I recomend a homemade granola if you have the time, otherwise try to find a good brand that does not contain chemicals.
Carbs – 50g. Fat – 8g. Protein – 11g. Fiber – 7g.
4. Toast With Cream Cheese and Scrambled Eggs
Toast and eggs are a classic so of course this would be on the list. Instead of butter though it has laughing cow cheese for a great source of healthy fats.
Carbs – 38g. Fat – 14g. Protein – 21g. Fiber – 4g.
5. Cereal With Bananas
If you are super pressed for time even though it wouldn’t be ideal you could resort to having a simple bown of cereal. As you can see by looking at the macronutrient breakdown cereal is very carb heavy and you may not feel as satisfied and sustained as you would with some of the other meal options. But keep that in mind and have a good snack with you for when the hunger hits again soon after this meal.
Carbs – 78g. Fat – 4g. Protein – 6g. Fiber – 7g.
6. Oatmeal With Bananas and Strawberries
This is a bit similar to the cereal in regards to balancing your macros. You can always add protein sources to make this a more balanced dish, but I have created the macronutrient breakdown based on the image shown here.
Carbs – 68g. Fat – 20g. Protein – 15g. Fiber – 11g.
7. French Toast With Strawberries
Who doesn’t love french toast. This is a good wholesome breakfast, though on the sweet side if you enjoy syrup as much as I do. Here are the stats…
Carbs – 41g. Fat – 13g. Protein – 22g. Fiber – 6g.
8. Peanut Butter & Banana Toast With Kiwi
I really like this one, it is so creative with the sliced banana on top. I am a fan of peanut butter so this makes it even better in my mind. I am definately going to give this a try. The carbs come out to be very high in this dish, but to offset this it also has a fair amount of protein and fat.
Carbs – 70g. Fat – 35g. Protein – 28g. Fiber – 14g.
9. Avacado Egg Sandwhich With A Homemade Instant Mocha
I really enjoy eggs and especially in the form of a sandwhich. Sadly I am testing my reaction to eggs and I am currently not consuming them, but this is making me question my resolve. I also am very fond of the instant mocha as it is so easy to pull together and doesn’t require any fancy equipment. Note – you would have to watch the video to see how she does this which I will post below…
Carbs – 32g. Fat – 14g. Protein – 17g. Fiber – 7g.
This is an amazing, and creative list of breakfast ideas that I am sure you will find at lease one that you thoroughly enjoy. Please see below for the full video.
