Two of Your Dietitian's Favorite Breakfasts

Do you believe that breakfast is the most important meal of the day?

Are you looking for breakfasts that are protein packed, but quick and easy?

Here are two of my favorite breakfasts that will get your work day off on the right foot and keep you satisfied !

  1. One is to prepare a fruit and yogurt parfait with Greek yogurt, fresh berries, and whole grain cereal. Simple, balanced, and tasty.

  2. Another recommendation is to upgrade avocado toast with smoked salmon and sliced tomato. Mash up avocado on whole grain toast and top with smoked salmon and tomato slices. I usually top this with Trader Joe’s Everything But the Bagel seasoning. This breakfast is bursting with flavor.

What to Eat For Breakfast on Mediterranean Diet

Are you following the Mediterranean diet? Here are four breakfast ideas to try:

1)     Fancy avocado toast – Upgrade heart healthy avocado toast by adding smoked salmon to some fiber packed whole grain bread. Drizzle with olive oil for extra flavor and heart healthy monounsaturated fat.

2)     Shakshuka – Fry up some tomatoes, garlic, onions, and herbs in olive oil and poach eggs for a delicious and filling breakfast. Dunk in some fiber rich whole grain bread.

3)     Greek yogurt with fruit and granola – Protein packed with probiotics, this yogurt is tart, but satisfying. Add in some fresh berries and whole grain granola.

4)     Overnight oats – Fiber filled overnight oats are simple, delicious, and make a great on the go breakfast. For additional protein, add in some Greek yogurt, walnuts for heart healthy fat, and sweeten with dates, fresh, frozen, or dried fruit.
