Get Fit 2014: Choose A Healthy Breakfast!

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day!  And if you're always late like me and choose an easy sugary option, it can mess up your eating habits for the entire day.  If I start the day off with a bad breakfast...I might as well chalk it up to a screwy eating day altogether.  So I try to avoid the donuts, Pop Tarts and chocolate chip waffles at all costs.  These are my favorite healthy options to replace those popular [so dang yummy] calorie loaded breakfasts. 

Replace French Toast with Ezekiel Bread French Toast

2 Slices Cinnamon Raisin Ezekiel Bread
1/2 C. All White Egg Whites
Tsp Cinnamon
Dash Nutmeg
Sugar Free Syrup
Sugar Free Cool Whip

Beat together Egg Whites, Cinnamon and Nutmeg.  Coat Ezekiel Bread in Mixture.  Brown both sides on nonstick griddle over medium heat.  Top with sugar free syrup, berries and sugar free cool whip! 

Replace pancakes and syrup with Banana Walnut Protein Pancakes and Sugar Free Syrup
[No photo because I can't get these to turn out pretty to save my life, but they do taste yummy]

1 Egg
2 Egg Whites
1 Mashed Banana
1/3 Cup Plain Oats
2 tbsp Whey Concentrate
1/2 tsp Baking Powder (sodium free)
2 Packets of Stevia
1 Tbsp Syntha 6 Vanilla Ice Cream Protein Powder
Bit of Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk (To achieve preferred pancake mix consistency)

Mix all ingredients and cook on a nonstick griddle! 
Top with Sugar Free Syrup and Chopped Walnuts [Optional]

Replace Instant Flavored Oatmeal with Baked Pear Apple Oats

1 Small Pear
1 Small Apple
1/3 Cup Oats
1 Egg White or Liquid Egg Whites Equivalent
Cinnamon (desired amount)
Stevia (2 Packets)

Core and dice pear and apple into small pieces.  Combine all ingredients, sprinkle with water to moisten oats and bake in a baking dish at 200 degrees for 20 minutes!
