16 Nutritious Breakfast Options with Extras



Eating breakfast is so important, however if you are like most families, mornings may be quite hectic. Do you ever end up skipping breakfast because you are in a rush? It happens at least once a week here. Getting up at 6:00am for the day and our day typically starts at 7:30am. I make sure we get up earlier so we can have everything done to start the day right. You can always prepare your diced veggies at night time so your morning goes that much quicker. There is also great protein shake options for those of you that like that too. Stay tuned for a whole list of tasty smoothies and shakes in a future post. For now, we are just going to go over a bunch of nutritious meals that we have had on our meal plan before. What are some of you favorite meals for breakfast?

The portions for these meals looked a little like this:
  • 1/2 cup ww oats, splash milk, 1 packet sw n low, 1/2 cup blueberries, 2 sliced strawberries you can serve this with boiled eggs with 1 or none yolks and just the whites or you can even pan fry an 2 egg whites with 1 egg and so on. 
  • Omelet with 1/8 cup reduced fat cheese, and 3/4 cup O'Brien pot with 1 egg + 2 whites
  • 2 slices of Turkey bacon, 1 egg and 2 slices tomato in whole wheat wrap
  • Whole grain oatmeal served with 1/2 cup blueberries, 2 strawberries,  1 oz crushed almonds, splash of milk, 1 packet sw in low.

  • 3 turkey sausages, 1/2 cup of O'Brien potatoes and a tortilla
  • Ham egg whites shredded cheese and a mushroom scramble
  • Egg whites on a whole wheat bagel
  • English muffin with egg, turkey bacon and a slice of tomato 
As you can see I love some spinach..well lots of spinach, it really is my favorite thing to eat. It is so nutritious and besides it makes Popeye happy to see you eat your greens. It can get expensive with a wide range of ingredients, so we tend to stick to just a few key ingredients when doing the meal planning so we do not break the bank just on ingredients for different recipes. We did quite a few replacements and often times I was making breakfast for myself and my kids would eat something slightly altered from mine.  Those are just a handful of great options you can have for breakfast and surely start your day off right. 

Please enjoy a couple recipe cards from me to you! A print friendly button is at the end of the post or you can save the image in your digital recipe files and print it later. What are some of your favorite quick and nutritious recipes? 
What does your breakfasts normally look like? 



I am not sure on the calorie count, but I wouldn't imagine the calorie count is very high with all of the healthy options.
