My Typical Breakfast

health recipes Mar 02, 2021

I think I am the same as most where I want my breakfasts to be healthy, but needs to be quick. 

Two things I do that help:

  • I do eat the same foods almost every morning, except Sundays where my husband or myself make flour-free waffles or pancakes. 
  • I prep on the weekends

We need protein in the morning to help keep us full until lunch so my breakfast protein staple is ground chicken/turkey muffins (recipe here). We make these over the weekend and both my husband and I have one every morning. 

Using ground turkey: 172cal, 7.9g fat, 6.5g carb, 18.7g protein

Because I am super active throughout the day, I need a bit of carbs. I usually make a bowl of quick oatmeal. 

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup GF Quick Oats
  • 1/8 cup raisins
  • pinch ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp nuts or seeds
  • 1/2 cup hot water

I mix the above ingredients and I am good to go! No cooking required :)

Oatmeal bowl: 262cal, 6.5g fat, 48.1g carb, 6.5g protein

Sometimes, like this morning, we ran out of chicken/turkey muffins, so I quickly made scrambled eggs (3 whole eggs plus 1/2 cup egg whites.) Done in five minutes (the worst part is having to wash the pan!)

Scramble Eggs: 277cal, 15g fat, 3g carb, 31.3g protein

I am full and ready to start the day with the nutrients I need to feel strong and energized :)
