I’ve gotten quite a few comments from folks about how they either don’t like eggs, or they can’t eat them, as well as the fact that some of you are intolerant to gluten, so…..
Who said we ever had to eat breakfast foods at breakfast?
It seems to me that really, it’s an American tradition to eat eggs and sausage, or cereal, or pancakes in the morning. Your options are much broader. Here are a few suggestions to get you thinking:
- Grilling steak for dinner? Why not grill up an extra one for in the morning? Pair it up with some potatoes and maybe a piece of fruit.
- Eat a granola bar and fruit.
- Have leftover grilled chicken? Toss it into a tortilla shell with some lettuce and veggies for a yummy wrap.
- Make up some sweet potato rolls or some spiced pumpkin rolls.
- Like spicy? Make up a burrito or pack a tortilla shell with seasoned rice, cheese, and leftover meat.
- Make yourself a sandwich. Choose a meat for protein and pack it full of veggies and/or cheese. Or snag a peanut butter and banana sandwich. (and use whole wheat bread!)
- Smoothies don’t need to need made with dairy! Try a fruit or veggie juice along with frozen fruit.
- Like hamburgers? Make one!
- Try a fruit salad or regular veggie salad for that matter.
- Leftover pizza? Make sure it’s a whole wheat crust and topped with plenty of good stuff and it’s not the worst thing for you. (and let’s not indulge everyday shall we?)
- Want something warm and don’t care for oatmeal? Try a hot bowl of soup or even chili.
Just get past the fact that you don’t like the “normal American breakfast”, and eat what you enjoy! By making sure you eat a bit of protein and a bit of fat along with some fruits or veggies, you’ll have your nutritional bases covered and can go about your day knowing you provided your body with a great start!
