Healthy Breakfast Ideas, Please
Today I’m sharing one of my favorite healthy breakfast ideas with you: Breakfast Guacamole on Toast. For this guacamole, avocados are pumped up with tang and protein from fat-free Greek yogurt (one of my favorite breakfast foods!). I’m also asking you to give me your own healthy breakfast ideas. Head down to the comment section of this post and help me start the day off healthier. Thanks in advance!
I’m on a quest to discover the perfect healthy breakfast idea. Or rather, a bunch of perfect healthy breakfast ideas. Eating the same thing for breakfast everyday is as boring as waiting for a bus in the burbs, don’t you think?
What I’m seeking (beyond variety) are breakfast foods with a blast of lean protein, a serving of vegetables (no fruit. My tongue can’t handle much sweetness in the morning) and a bit of whole grain. Why this combo? My body craves protein and grain in the morning. Without them, a grumbling loud enough to make my toddler giggle undulates from my belly and will not stop for hours (that the grumbles keep happening make her giggle all the more). The veg is because I never satisfy my vegetable requirements for the day and so I want to slam some into my morning.
Other requirements for my breakfast foods: They must taste amazing and cannot take long to throw together.
That’s not asking for too much, is it?
So far, my favorite healthy breakfast idea is this Breakfast Guacamole on Toast.
What I’d really love (what I really *need*) are some great healthy breakfast ideas from you.
Please help me fill my belly with breakfast foods that will power me up and shift me onto a healthy track. I can’t wait to read your healthy breakfast ideas in the comment area below. Feel free to provide links (only one per comment or my spam filter will kick in). Thank you!!!
- 1 slice of multigrain bread
- ½ of a hass avocado
- ¼ cup fat-free Greek yogurt
- 1 tbsp chopped cilantro (I snip it into the mix using kitchen shears)
- a squeeze of lemon
- 2 dashes of salt, divided
- 2 grinds of pepper, divided
- Put the bread in the toaster to toast.
- Scoop the flesh of the avocado into a small bowl. Mash it with a fork. Add the yogurt, lemon, a dash of salt and a grind of pepper and mash it all together.
- Once the toast has toasted, mound the guacamole onto the toast. Sprinkle the top with the second dash of salt and second grind of pepper. Eat. Be satisfied.
Before wrapping up for today, I just want to tell you about something else breakfast-related. From May 5-11, 2013 I’m participating in Food Blogger #BrunchWeek. It’s a huge event with over 30 bloggers, over 100 brunch recipes and so many incredible prizes (I mean it. These prizes are the most amazing things to ever hit my blog. You will not believe it).
It will all start off on May 5th at 9am Eastern with a round of brunch recipe blog posts. Then at 2pm Eastern we have our Opening Ceremony TweetChat where we will officially be announcing all the prizes and amazing sponsors who have donated them. We will also be giving away some wonderful prizes to TweetChat participants. Search for #BrunchWeek to find us tweeting and use the hashtag to enter to win.
Then all week long we’ll be posting our tasty brunch ideas. This is such a wonderful brunch recipe resource, especially with Mother’s Day being right around the corner. I mean, it’s totally brunch season, right?
#BrunchWeek’s Closing Ceremony is a PinChatLive on the #BrunchWeek Pinterest Board at 2pm on May 11th where we’ll be announcing all the week’s prize winners and giving away some more great prizes to anyone who comments on any of the pins during the chat. The only PinChatLive thing to remember is to refresh your screen often so you don’t miss any of the unfolding chat.
O.K., now head down to the comments and give me your healthy breakfast ideas. I am desperate for them. Thanks!!!
