Five Unthought of Breakfast Ideas

Few weeks ago, Kati Mora from Around the Plate contributed a post on the benefits of breakfast for weight loss. She wrote,

Research shows that individuals who put in the effort to eat breakfast regularly are the ones who are more likely to achieve and maintain a healthy weight

Kati made the point that breakfast has to be of quality: rich in nutrients from fruits and vegetables.

While the most obvious breakfast with fruits is a bowl of cereal and one with vegetables is an omelet, things can be a little more creative.

Five dietitians (or dietitians to be) I follow had a breakfast challenge this past week and came up with out of the box ideas. They included foods many of us don’t see as breakfast foods. Plus, you can make them ahead of time and grab on the go–when there’s not much time to stop and think of what to eat.

What is your creative breakfast idea?

Have a fun breakfast-eating week!

Nour’s guidance and expertise was the key to dramatically halting our son’s [Crohn’s] disease progression! His pediatric gastroenterologist is now in agreement of our choice to treat solely with diet and supplements. All his labs have improved and his inflammatory markers are so low they are practically nonexistent.

Before working with Nour, I experienced intestinal pain off and on for for 54 years with minimal success on medications. I have benefited 100% from Nour’s program as I am now pain free!

A lot of time and money was wasted on foods that I thought would help my digestive struggles [diarrhea, bloating, hunger], but in fact I was making it worse. The main benefit is getting a handle on what negatively affects my digestive symptom. Doing a total 180 to my eating habits has been pretty amazing.

      Thanks Arlette. I was able to sign in but I don’t see my name under your list though. Can you see me? I sent you an email.

  1. Wow! These are amazing recipes that I can’t wait to try. I blogged about breakfast ideas this very morning myself. Good to see more ideas out there to combat the refined wheat and sugar combos many people grab on the go. Thank you for sharing!
