Topic: Healthy breakfast food ideas?
November 14, 2019 / By Griffith Question:
I've been trying to eat healthy lately but I'm getting sick of eating the same things every day! What are some healthy meals for breakfast that are filling and will last me until lunch? Any ideas are helpful including: drinks, breakfast on the go, ways to get more fiber, super energy foods etc. Thank you! :)

For a drink with breakfast you could try green tea or water with lemon :) Both are great for you. For fiber things like oatmeal, whole grain high fiber cereals (low in sugar), whole grain breads, ground flax seed, fruits, etc. Fiber and protein can help you stay full till lunch time.
If you can go for natural organic foods.
Here are some healthy breakfast ideas :)
Topping ideas: berries/fruit, nut butter, nuts, seeds, dried fruit, cinnamon, natural jam, honey, agave nectar, milk or non-dairy milk or greek yogurt or organic unsweetened fruit sauce, etc.
* Non-dairy milk like - almond, soy, rice or coconut milk.
~ Healthy cereal (such as Kashi or Nature's Path Organic cereals - high in fiber low in sugar) with milk, non-dairy milk or greek yogurt. You can also add in some fresh fruit like berries, banana slices, peach slices, etc.
~ Muesli with yogurt and fruit salad
~ Greek yogurt with fruit or fruit salad. You can also add some nuts, seeds or ground flax seed to the yogurt. Add a hard boiled egg or two if you'd like to make it a more filling breakfast
~ Omelet with lots of veggies and a little cheese (such as goat cheese). Paired with whole grain toast or fresh fruit with yogurt.
~ Whole grain tortilla spread lightly with cream cheese, filled with egg whites & baby spinach with fresh fruit
~ Toasted whole grain english muffin spread with cream cheese, with a poached or boiled egg, baby spinach, sliced tomato, slice of cheese and fruit
~ Whole grain toast with nut butter and natural jam or slices of banana. Paired with a yogurt or a hard boiled egg
~ Cottage cheese with one or two eggs (boiled, scrambled, etc.). With whole grain toast and fruit.
~ Cottage cheese with fruit - for example sliced peach, pineapple chunks or berries. You could pair this with nuts like almonds or hard boiled eggs.
~ Smoothie: blending milk of your choice, yogurt, berries/fruit and add ground flax seed to if you want. To make this more filling you could pair the smoothie with almonds or multigrain toast with nut butter or a bowl of oatmeal.
~ Buckwheat or whole grain waffle or pancake - topped with greek yogurt and fruit or nut butter and natural jam or slices of banana.
~ Parfait made with greek yogurt, berries, organic granola or muesli - you could also add in some almonds or walnuts or sprinkle on cinnamon and ground flax seed, for example
~ Whole grain bagel with cream cheese, hard boiled eggs, fruit salad
~ Rye bread with avocado and hard boiled eggs
I hope this helps :)

Some good breakfast ideas are: 1. Fruit and Cheese
A balanced, easy-to-assemble make-ahead morning meal: Grab an apple, wrap 1 to 2 ounces of Cheddar in plastic, and toss ¼ cup of fiber- and protein-rich walnuts into a resealable plastic bag.
2. Peanut Butter Waffle
Instead of dousing a whole-grain or bran toaster waffle in syrup, cut the sugar and boost the protein and fiber by spreading it with 2 tablespoons of peanut butter. You can also sprinkle on 1 tablespoon of raisins, sesame seeds, or extra peanuts for even more fiber, which helps deliver the meal's nutrients slowly and steadily. 3. donut and chocolate milk
A plain cake-style doughnut is usually a better choice than a bakery muffin. At Dunkin' Donuts, for instance, an old-fashioned doughnut has 280 calories, while a corn muffin has 510 calories. Add fiber by eating ¼ cup of almonds or dried fruit. Instead of coffee, try 8 ounces of low-fat chocolate milk. 4. strawberry shake
In a cocktail shaker, combine a packet of vanilla or strawberry instant-breakfast powder (look for the no-sugar-added kind, such as Carnation) and 1 cup of low-fat strawberry cow's milk or soy milk. (You can also mix this the night before.) If you have time, use a blender to add strawberries or a frozen banana, for extra fiber, and a scoop of protein powder, such as GeniSoy Natural.
You could have a slice of last night's pizza (it's preferable to filling up on sugar or skipping breakfast). Or you could try a more sophisticated spin: Take a slice of crusty bread, spread it with 3 tablespoons of low-fat ricotta, and add tomatoes. Finish with a drizzle of olive oil (about 1 teaspoon) and a little salt and pepper. Broiling is optional.
6. Energy Bars
To substitute for a meal, an energy bar should have at least 3 to 5 grams of fiber and 10 grams of protein. Odwalla, Kashi GoLean, and TruSoy are all good options. Because cereal bars rarely have more than 2 grams of protein, kids might be better off adding a stick of Go-Gurt! and a sleeve of peanuts.
Yes, you read that right. If you must eat fast food in the morning, get an Egg McMuffin at McDonald's. At 300 calories, it's not an outrageous meal. Plus it has a good amount of lean protein from the egg and the Canadian bacon. To trim empty calories, remove the top half of the muffin. For additional fiber, add a fresh orange.
A bowl of fiber-rich bran flakes (about 1½ cups) with 8 ounces of low-fat milk is nearly the perfect breakfast. Make it portable by replacing the milk with lemon or vanilla yogurt and mixing it in a to-go container. Increase the fiber and vitamins by adding ¼ cup of nuts or fresh or dried fruit, such as chopped pecans or blueberries.
One of the most portable proteins is a hard-cooked egg, but it has no fiber or carbohydrates. So slice it, then roll it in an 8-inch whole-wheat tortilla with a piece of Canadian bacon or lean ham and, if you like, a ½-ounce slice of cheese. Add a tablespoon of salsa for a shot of flavor and a smidgen of vitamin C. These are only some of the great healthy breakfast ideas.

Try whole grain cereals-much more filling. If you can do dairy other than milk, yogurt and low fat cream cheese are good items. Fruit is very filling (yes you can eat fruit other than grapefruit at breakfast!). There's no reason you can't eat leftovers from dinner for breakfast if that appeals. Think outside the egg.
Believe it or not eggs are very healthy. Most people know that they have high cholesterol. However, what most people don't know is that it is good cholesterol. Obviously you would want to avoid bacon, but anything in moderation couldn't be THAT bad. My mother used to always make bell pepper salad and that worked miracles. For that you would need to dice three orange, red, and yellow. Add a quarter cup of extra virgin olive oil and a cup of garlic bread croutons. Let it sit for a good ten minutes after the oil drizzle and it tastes good anytime of the day.
Porridge with fruit,bran with fruit, scrambled eggs, toast with avocado, Cereal and fruit,plus slice of toast, scrambled eggs with bacon, that's a few to add to your diet.

Take half a large plain or raisin bagel, spread it with 1 or 2 tablespoons of peanut butter, then press the peanut butter side into any dry cereal made of small pieces. If you don't want the added fat of the peanut butter, do the same with a jam or jelly, although it will have much less protein.
A banana or apple and some peanut butter is great - if you have time, have a piece of whole wheat toast along with it.
No one says you can't have a half-sandwich for breakfast, nothing wrong with it. If you want to make it a breakfast sandwich - use a chilled, cooked sausage patty left over from the day before, as the meat in it.
20 minutes is ample time to scramble an egg or two, toss some veggies in with it. If you have to eat on the go, put the scrambled eggs between two pieces of bread and take it with you.
Leftovers! If it was good for your body at 7 PM, it is still good for your body at 7 AM. And don't feel you have to heat it up. Meatloaf is great cold, and can be put between bread, English muffin or bagels. Many casseroles are great cold, too. I don't know of anyone who hasn't had cold pizza!
Most traditional breakfasts (fried eggs, bacon, sausage, oatmeal, grits, etc) all are non-dairy but you have the 20 minute factor. So think about making some the meat ahead of time (if you are making beef the night before, brown some sausage patties at the same time and stick them in the fridge) and either eating it cold or reheated the next day.
I hope that helps.
