Easy Breakfast Ideas

September 26, 2017

There’s a lot more to breakfast than just bacon and eggs. You’ve heard if from me before… research shows that eating breakfast helps you lose weight and keep it off, plus it’s also associated with a reduced risk of obesity, metabolic syndrome, hypertension and Type 2 diabetes. When you make breakfast a consistent habit, you set the stage for consistent blood sugar levels throughout the day, with fewer cravings, while keeping your hunger under control.

 But, despite all these great reasons to eat breakfast, it’s still easy to fall into the breakfast rut. Here are some fresh, new ideas for healthy breakfasts and low-carb breakfasts on the go.

 Almond and Coconut Muffin in a Minute

Muffins in a Minute (MIM) are a portable and fiber-rich, low-carb Atkins breakfast (or snack) mainstay. This recipe features a tasty almond-coconut twist.

 Blackberry Smoothie

Even when you don’t think you have time for breakfast, you can whip up this low-carb protein-packed smoothie in minutes on the busiest of mornings. You can also swap out frozen blackberries for strawberries, blueberries or a berry blend.

 Breakfast Burrito

Add diced ham, cooked sausage or leftover chopped rotisserie chicken to this recipe for an added boost of protein. Wrap up your burrito in foil and turn it into an on-the-go breakfast you can enjoy once you hit the office.

 Chicken Chorizo Cauliflower Sauté with Cheese and Salsa

Having a hankering for breakfast hash or a cheesy Southwestern skillet? This recipe substitutes cauliflower, which is naturally low in carbs, for potatoes. If you’re craving a heartier breakfast, add a sunny-side up egg on top.

 More Healthy Low-Carb Breakfast Ideas

 You’ve heard of breakfast for dinner? Well, you can never go wrong with leftover dinner for breakfast. Steak, chicken, fish, veggies? Just re-heat and eat up, or add it to scrambled eggs, an omelet or a frittata.
