Fast Breakfast Foods:
- Egg-white omelet – Make it with last night’s leftover vegetables (mushrooms, peppers, onions, zucchini, squash or broccoli) and low-fat cheddar cheese. Feel free to experiment with different combinations. Top your omelet with raw diced tomato because it is loaded with lycopene… a powerful antioxidant.
- Boiled egg with 2 slices of wheat toast. Save yourself time in the morning by boiling the eggs the night before.
- Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie – If you let bananas get too ripe, don’t throw them away! Instead… peel the banana and put in the freezer to use in smoothies. Blend 1 frozen banana, 2 tablespoons natural peanut butter, 1 cup of almond milk (which keeps longer in the fridge than regular milk), and a few ice cubes. (Add a scoop of your favorite chocolate or vanilla protein powder for an extra protein boost!)
- Low-fat bran muffin – add a side of yogurt with fresh or frozen fruit stirred in
- Microwave Eggs – There are special dishes for microwaving eggs in under 2 minutes. Make it a healthy version of the Egg McMuffin Sandwich by adding a slice of Canadian bacon, a slice of tomato and low-fat cheese and placing on a whole wheat English muffin.
- Oatmeal mixed with cranberries, 1/2 chopped apple, cinnamon and pecans.
- Cheesy oatmeal – cook oatmeal, then stir in a dash of red pepper flakes (or chipotle pepper flakes) and shredded cheddar cheese
