Considering the fact that breakfast has been proclaimed as the most important meal of the day, it only makes sense that it should be high in protein, fiber, and fat, for the purpose of keeping us satisfied, vivacious and helping us regulate our weight.
Thus, say goodbye to all of the bagels, cereals, and toasts, filled with refined carbs, and deficient in nutrients and fiber, and turn to one of these healthy alternatives:
Consume eggs prepared in all possible ways, as an omelet, boiled, scrambled and combined with some herbs.
Green protein smoothie
This is a tasty and mobile breakfast. Simply mix products high in protein and some green veggies, and boost the taste with oats, seeds or nuts.
This happens to be an easy and rich breakfast, which will provide the body with the required nutrients. It’s optional, but some protein powder will optimize its powers. Greek yogurt can be replaced with a coconut one.
This is an incredible formula, whose most important ingredients are a banana and eggs.
- 1 large banana
- 4 eggs
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- ½ cup almond meal
Blend all of the ingredients and pour a couple tbsp of the mixture over a previously greased skillet. When it begins to bubble, turn it on the other side.
It can be classified as a low-carb, grain-free meal, that controls the levels of blood sugar, and is a great start of the day. Simply combine non-dairy milk, maple syrup, and chia seeds, leave it sit until the next morning and when you wake up just add toppings such as vanilla extract, nuts, seeds, cinnamon, or blueberries.
Egg and avocado
Chop up some avocado and boiled eggs, and just add some pepper and sea salt. The avocado contains vitamin B5 which is known to deal with stress, as well as providing you with fiber, fat, and protein.
We recommend these easy to make recipes:
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1 cup water or nut milk (almond, coconut)
- 1/2 apple or pear chopped into small pieces
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
Fill a saucepan with a cup of water or nut milk, and the pour the cinnamon, coconut oil, and sliced pear or apple in it. Boil the ingredients, and then let them simmer for a while. After it’s done, simply add nuts, maple syrup, coconut flakes, nut butter, or ground flax.
Grain-Free Banana Bread
Heat up the banana bread, and spread some nut butter over it or consume it with a topping of your choice.
All you need is a scoop of vegan vanilla protein powder, coconut yogurt and whatever you choose to top it with, whether it is sunflower, pumpkin seeds, banana slices, hemp or berries.
This is in fact a mixture of chia, buckwheat grouts soaked in some hot water or non-dairy milk.
