Quick Breakfast Ideas

Healthier Breakfast Options For You and Your Family!

 

Breakfast on the go is very common - or even if you’re home breakfast in a hurry is common too.  There's nothing wrong with something quick, but if we can try to be more careful in our choices, it could made a world of difference in the energy you bring to you day.

 

Here’s a video I watched that kinda had this idea to gather up some quick and healthy options.  Bonus, if you use the same nutrition plan I use, Portion Fix, most of these have the measumrents listed for you in the link and I’ve also added them to the list for ease.

I LOVE breakfast so it’s hard for me to narrow down my favorites, and by NO means am I saying I’m perfect, but here’s 5 options, maybe try one or two next week and get back to me about what you tried and what you thought.  

 

 

 

Shake/Smoothie

 

If you follow me on social, ya'll know how much I love a super quick smoothie or shake.  I typically with use Daily Sunshine, Shakeology or Vega.  

 

Shakeology is daily for my vitamins and to give me a mid afternoon pick me up, but I know some people who love it first thing in the morning.  My top recipes can be found in this file (shh I normally only give this to my clients who’ve joined my private community, but alas, it’s yours too!)

 

Daily Sunshine or Vega are go to’s for me since I stopped eating a little less animal protein.  My daughter LOVES Daily Sunshine, which in Chocolate or Strawberry Banana flavors, it mixes awesome with just 8-10 oz of unsweetened almond milk (or milk of choice)

Vega is what I use along with my Energize, sweet potato and spinach as my pre-workout meal, I use Vega Greens Almond Berry flavor and really like it w/ 5 oz each of water and almond milk.

Eggs  

  • Sweet Potato Egg Cups (1R 1Y 1/2 tsp):  https://www.beachbodyondemand.com/blog/sweet-potato-egg-cups

  • Veggie Egg Cups (1R 1/2G):  https://www.beachbodyondemand.com/blog/mini-vegetable-egg-cups

  • Veggie & Egg Tacos (1G 1R 1Y 1tsp from oil used/oil in the mushroom mix)- this is a favorite of mine that I make EVERY day almost - I used 1/2 a cup of each Trader Joe’s brand Frozen Mushroom Medley and Frozen Roasted Onion & Pepper - put it in a skillet on medium and cook until done.  I then cook two eggs - sometimes I put them in a bowl, mix them up, combine in my veggies after they are cooked, and toss it back onto the skillet for about 3 minutes covered, flip and cook another minute (pending on your pan, you may need to add 1/2-1tsp coconut oil or butte to keep from sticking.  I also just cook the eggs over medium or scramble them into the pan with the veggies still in the pan after the veggies have cooked.  I will have them taco style with 2 small corn tortillas. Portions 1G 1R 1Y 1tsp (from oil used/oil in the mushroom mix)

    • Full disclosure I also just make a two egg omelet for my girls many mornings. I will give them a little freshly shredded cheese and I sometimes add sauté spinach in there if I chop it really fine.  I personally don’t think it takes long to make an omelet but I’ve also done it for  so long so I’m practiced at it.

 

 

Bars

When going for a breakfast bar, I like the RX Bars or Beachbars Here’s how the top bars rank up

 

 

These are the Beachbars and they are really good - moist without being sticky, and just enough to keep you satisfied with a cup of coffee on the side <3
