4 Delicious & Healthy Winter Breakfast Ideas
Want to stay healthy this winter while enjoying the most important meal of the day? To help you prepare for the rest of the cold season, we’ve put together some ideas for healthy (and delicious!) winter breakfast ideas to keep you warm and cozy while staying in your best shape.
Typically we think of pancakes as a bit of a comfort breakfast; they’re delicious but not exactly the most nutritious option in the morning! However, with certain variations of traditional box pancakes, you can make a very healthy and protein-packed meal! These banana pancakes mimic the typical texture and flavor of a regular pancake, with just a fraction of the ingredients and a unique flavor. Find the recipe here and then add your favorite fruits and sugar-free syrup to top! Yum!
Another delicious and healthy option is avocado toast. Our favorite thing about this one is that it’s so easy to make, whatever types of bread or toppings you have at home. This meal also only takes a matter of minutes to make so it’s perfect for getting out of the house in a rush or when you’re just too tired to cook. There’s a good amount of healthy fats in avocado to keep you full until lunch, and a great addition is a fried egg on top to add more protein and flavor. Top with your favorite hot sauce, honey, or seasonings and you’ve got a delicious, healthy breakfast.
Oatmeal is a pretty healthy breakfast option to begin with, however these power oats are even better for you and give you an extra boost of energy and protein for the day. You can start off with your own typical oatmeal recipe, and add berries, peanut butter, honey, coconut flakes, cacao nibs, or whatever toppings you prefer. It can be ready in a matter of minutes, and keep you full for hours! We’ve included a quick and easy Protein Powder Oatmeal recipe for some inspiration!
A warm and extremely popular winter breakfast idea is a homemade omelet! For the winter mornings that make you want to cuddle up with a nice warm meal and some coffee, an omelet is a perfect choice. There are many different variations of this meal, but the general idea is the same: mix some eggs in a pan, and throw in your favorite vegetables, protein, and cheese, and fold the eggs over to create a delicious morning meal. For a low-calorie option, swap out regular eggs for egg whites, use turkey or chicken instead of bacon or ham, and include vegetables such as broccoli, peppers, or tomatoes. We’ve included a comprehensive recipe for a Half-Moon Browned Omelet for you to follow next time you want to enjoy this delicious dish!
