I realized with my breakfast talk yesterday I forgot to mention one of my favorite things to eat and that is either turkey sausage or turkey bacon. They both give you that small taste of an un healthy/greasy breakfast without all of the calories and fat.
Here is something that I love that I do eat on occasion on the weekends when we have turkey sausage:
1 high fiber english muffin, they are 100 cals and like 8 grams of fiber and 5 grams protein
1 turkey sausage patty (or you could replace this with turk bacon)
1 slice 2% cheese
1 whole egg cooked over easy. (of course you could cook your egg however you prefer)
Can we say...HEALTHY FAST FOOD BREAKFAST EQUIVALENT!! YUM!
Another heatlhy alternative and something you can totally cook up a head of time and have ready to grab and go are breakfast burritos with eggs, cheese, turkey meat product, and veggies if you want in a low carb/high fiber tortilla. LOVE THOSE TOO!
I wanted to share a few of the suggetions that others made in my comments suggestions about their favorite breakfasts. They all sound so good.
Lindsay at Protein Cake said:
1/4 cup of oats cooked in water w/ 1/4 c banana whipped into it while it is cooking. When done add in whey protein powder and cinnamon.
It must be good b/c she says she dreams about it at night and can't wait to eat it. Hmmm, might need to give this a try.
She loves her oatmeal with almond milk and 1 tbsp of bee pollen with packet of truvia and splash of Davinici Gourmet SF syrups.
She said these syrups are AWESOME and they come in 40 flavors like Toasted Marshmallow, German Chocolate Cake, Dulce Leche.
YUM!! I have heard of these Davinici syrups before and I might need to give them a try too. You get them here: http://www.davincigourmet.com/products/sugar_free_flavored_syrups/
Natalie at Normal to Natalie said: (this is actually one of my personal favorites, love me some protein pancakes!)
1/2 cup dry reg oatmeal1
1/2 cup ff cottage cheese
1/2 cup egg whites
1/2 cup egg beaters (because they are thicker than the egg whites and with much experimenting this is the best consistancy)
Blend in magic bullet and cook on griddle just like you would pancakes. yum! also, lately I've been adding a small handful of baby spinach leaves before blending. adds some vitamins and fiber and doesn't change the flavor any just turns them green.
Side note from Dawn: Great idea to add the spinach. I make a green monster as some refer to it with 1 scoop of protien powder and a large handful of spinach and blend up and it is a great way to get in your healthy greens without having to eat them. I am just not a big fan of them in regular consistency but I love them blended up.
Oh and if you do not have a magic bullet I HIGHLY recommend this as a purchase. In fact this is what one looks like when you are blending a green monster.
