Four Quick Breakfasts

Here are four quick, super simple breakfasts we like at my house, with practically no recipe required. Each meal also has a nice balance of carbs and protein, which is great for after a workout. I have to admit, I don’t personally like yogurt much, but my husband does and he eats the yogurt options often (he doubles the amount I eat). I figured I should add something besides just egg options. ;)

A couple of the breakfasts reference homemade turkey sausage. Check out our previous blog for the recipe.

3 Eggs, 1/4 cup quick oatmeal made with 1/2 cup 2% milk & 1tsp butter, 1/2 cup strawberries

Banana overnight oats topped with 2 teaspoons of sliced almonds, 2 homemade turkey sausage patties.

We make the Banana chocolate chip recipe from this site with no chocolate and no sweetener. The recipe makes two servings if you’re smaller person and one if you’re not.

Muesli with Grapes and Walnuts, 2 turkey sausage patties (or 2 eggs)

Mix 1/4 cup 1-minute oatmeal with 1 - 5.3oz container of Siggi’s Iceland Yogurt Vanilla and 1/2 cup grapes. Top with 1 tablespoon walnuts.

Iceland yogurt has just a ton a protein for yogurt, however, the vanilla flavored yogurt does contain sweetener in the form of agave nectar. You could use plain yogurt if you do not want that added sweetener. I would probably add more fruit to sweeten it up if you do this though. Bananas are good too.

Scrambled eggs (2 whole eggs & 2 egg white), 1/4 avocado, 1 piece whole grain toast, 1/4 cup of blueberries

I use All-Whites 100% Liquid Egg Whites for my egg whites. I can’t bring myself to waste a yolk out of a real egg. :)
