Sunday Thoughts (20 recipes)
We've all been fed a bit of a lie.
And I used the word "fed" on purpose.
I'm talking about breakfast. Because for years how many times have you had cereal or pancakes? Or a big waffle with syrup. Mmm.
Don't get me wrong, I love these foods. But if you're trying to lose weight… they're not the best.
Instead, I've got a list of breakfast ideas that are not only delicious… but healthy too!
So here we go… here are 20 breakfast recipes I think you'll love (so will your waistline):
- Overnight Oats
Overnight oats require little to no prep time, making it the perfect dish for a crazy morning.
- Breakfast Burrito Bowl
This is a delicious way to start your day. Use well-cooked, seasoned brown rice for its base, and add your preferred toppings.
- Greek Yogurt and Berries
Top off this simple, protein-filled yogurt with berries of your pick. Strawberries, blueberries, or cranberries all pair nicely with the dish.
- Avocado Toast With Carrot Juice
While avocado contains fats, you can pair it with something like whole-grain toast and carrot juice. The carbs and fats of avocado toast perfectly complement carrot juice's protein and fibers to create a well-balanced meal.
- Breakfast Egg Wrap
You can get creative with your breakfast egg wrap. Fill it up with your favorite vegetables & seasonings of your choice!
- Quinoa Egg Salad
A quick breakfast for busy days, the quinoa egg salad serves both your taste buds and your health. Toss your quinoa and top it off with chopped boiled eggs for best results.

Oatmeal and chia seeds combine to create the most healthy porridge. It'll keep you full for hours.

Vegan breakfast tacos are another tasty way to begin your day. Fill your whole-grain tortillas with some tossed tofu, eggs, and vegetables to make mouth-watering tacos.
- Hash Browns With a Side of Protein
Include starch for extra energy in your meal with potato hash browns. Complete the dish with a side of eggs for protein. In the end, what you have is a perfect pre-workout meal.
- Muesli and Almond Milk
This meal is one of the quickest dishes on our list yet one of the healthiest. Add muesli to some warm almond milk for a protein-packed, low-fat breakfast.
- Brown Rice Breakfast Bowl
Make this sweet-tasting brown rice bowl with three healthy ingredients. Just add almond vanilla milk and maple syrup to a bowl of well-cooked brown rice.
- Almond Butter Banana Oats
Add a twist to your plain oatmeal. Banana slices add a sweet flavor to your oatmeal, while almond butter gives it a smooth texture and flavor.
- Chickpea Hash With Broccoli
Add chickpeas and broccoli to frozen hash browns to make a healthy meal.
- Zucchini Pizza
Pizza for breakfast is untraditional but not impossible. Use zucchini crust for a healthy pizza base!
- Hummus and Quinoa
You can make a breakfast bowl using your favorite hummus. Adding quinoa makes the meal even healthier.
- Herb Omelet and Cherry Tomatoes
Make a high-protein omelet and garnish with cherry tomatoes. (Tip: I like to saute my cherry tomatoes with garlic and basil.)
- Scrambled Eggs and Turkey Bacon
This meal is a healthier substitute for classic bacon and eggs. Saute vegetables and turkey, garnishing them with scrambled eggs.
- Mixed Fruit Breakfast Bowl
This bowl is full of assorted fruits for a quick and effortless breakfast. Add kiwi, grapes, banana slices… or any fruits you have available.
- Quinoa Lentil Salad
Another simple salad bowl, quinoa lentil salad, is healthy and easy. Just add quinoa, lentils, and chopped cilantro to a bowl and toss to coat the dressing before you serve.
Mmm. There are a lot more staples in there than you'd think. Like eggs, bacon, fruit, and even wraps. See you don't have to sacrifice taste for health. You can have both. Also, remember this famous quote… "even moderation in moderation." So start off small, then work up to make these meals more of a common thing for your breakfast.
Hope you get to try one of these recipes this week. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.
