Hello! Welcome and congrats!
Breakfast has become one of my favorite meals of the day since I started eating healthy! I have a goal of 300 calories and 20 grams of protein for each breakfast (part of my daily guidelines from my nutritionist). In the summer I liked to have light, less dense breakfasts that involve fruit and usually dairy as my protein source.
Last week I was all about the "Quaker Oatmeal Instant Weight Loss" packets, which contain 160 calories and 7 grams of protein (and 6 grams of fiber?). I added warm milk to these, as well as measured portions of fruits like strawberries, blueberries, or cherries. I also added 9 grams of walnuts.
This week I'm in love with Greek Yogurt. I take 1 Chobani nonfat vanilla (120 calories and 16 grams of protein; nonfat plain is even better: 100 calories and 18 grams). To this I add 3 to 4 packets of Splenda (big sweet tooth), my fruit portions, as well as the walnuts and 2 chopped up squares of dark chocolate. 327 calories and 20 grams of protein!
Soooo yummy, the greek yogurt with the Splenda looks and tastes like a rich, creamy ice cream that doesn't even melt at room temperature. Today I used an idea from the website and melted the chocolate first, and then mixed it in. It was like having a very light chocolate ice cream with fruit and nuts for breakfast. But it was healthy, with no need to feel guilty about it!
As you can see, the possibilities, even just for breakfast, are endless, fascinating, and delicious.
