Savory Oatmeal With an Egg
Take oatmeal to a whole new level by making it savory. Prepare as usual with milk or water, but add a pinch of salt and pepper instead of any cinnamon or sugar. Then top with an over-easy or poached egg and sprinkle on a little cheese for an extra tasty kick.
Quinoa Fruit Salad
Spice up a plain old fruit cup with a scoop of quinoa. Toss the whole shebang around until the quinoa is evenly distributed. Add a dressing of honey, lime, and basil for a little extra body.
Avocado Toast With Egg
Sometimes simple is just better. Top two lightly toasted slices of whole-grain bread with smashed avocado and a sprinkling of salt and pepper. Layer on two sunny-side up eggs for a healthy dose of protein, and you’ve got a well-rounded breakfast. Stack ’em in a Tupperware container for easy transport or cook the yolks a bit more and make the whole thing into a sandwich.
Zucchini Bread Oatmeal
Turn a classic baked loaf into oatmeal with this recipe. Adding shredded zucchini is a great way to fit in an extra serving of veggies. Throw on a handful of toasted walnuts for some added crunch.
Egg Breakfast Muffins
Finally, a muffin without allllll the sugar. These guys are simple to make ahead of time, and last all week. Blend or whisk eggs with spinach, bacon, and cheese, then pour the mixture into muffin tins. Bake for 15-20 minutes before serving or storing in the refrigerator for later.
PB&J Waffle Sandwich
Try this sweet take on a classic breakfast sandwich the next time you’re eating on the go. Prepare a whole-grain toaster waffle and slice in half. Spread with 2 tablespoons nut butter and jelly of your choice, and layer sliced strawberries on top.
