10 min or Less Breakfast

May 15, 2019

Many people forgo breakfast in a rush to get out the door, however your breakfast does not have to be complicated! Check back on this blog to see the many different quick and easy breakfast recipes you can start incorporating into your morning!

 

There are many different food restrictions to keep in mind when planning your meals, even if something is healthy, doesn't necessarily mean it is right for you.

 

For example, a piece of fruit is a wonderfully healthy breakfast, however if you are a diabetic, if may not be the best choice for you as fruit still raises your blood sugar (keep in mind if your alternative is a fried chicken biscuit or doughnut, always opt for the fruit - diabetes or not :D )

 

Another example is the breakfast plate seen below, this is a quick, easy and healthy breakfast, however if you have high cholesterol, it is best to opt for only egg whites, or eliminate the eggs entirely and choose vegetarian (however even with high cholesterol, this egg breakfast would still be healthier than your sausage biscuit option) :D Is that getting complicated? It can be! Call our office and ask to speak to our nutritionist Alyssa for more information, mention this blog!

 

 

 

WHAT'S ON THE PLATE?

 

  • 1-2 Over Easy, Pasture-Raised Eggs (seasoned with black pepper and garlic powder)

  • Large dollop of non-fat, unsweetened greek yogurt (used similarly to a sour cream replacement)

  • 1/2 avocado, sliced

  • Topped with salsa of choice! :D 

 

WHAT WILL I EAT TOMORROW?

 

Perhaps a bowl of the yogurt used above, topped with some frozen (and thawed) berries!

 

LEFTOVER AVOCADO?

 

Cube it into quarters and place in a container or plastic bag to freeze and use in future smoothies!

 

WHAT WILL I EAT LATER THIS WEEK?

 

Perhaps a breakfast burrito with leftover sauteed veggies from my dinner + some beans (pre-made and frozen in a small sandwich bag so it defrosts quickly in the pan) + the salsa I have! YUM!

 

THE NEXT DAY?

 

A healthy smoothie with an added chunk of that frozen avocado from earlier in the week!

 

THE DAY AFTER THAT?

 

A wheat tortilla (leftover from the burrito's) with healthy peanut butter and healthy jam, rolled up and out the door!

 

 

Please Note: Even if you don't have high cholesterol, it is best to stick to a max intake of around 4 eggs weekly.  As always, moderation is key.
