Healthy Breakfasts

When getting healthy and losing weight, eating breakfast is very important to get your body going for the day.

I thought I would share a few of my quick and healthy breakfast ideas.

These are all great alternatives to boring old cereal and toast in the morning.

Purple Milkshakes


Place 20 grams of quick oats, 170 gram tub of low-fat vanilla yoghurt, 200 mls skim milk and 150 grams frozen mixed berries in a blender and whiz for 30 seconds! Magic, breakfast smoothie.

I call them purple milkshakes as they are purple from the blueberries and thats what my daughter calls them when I make them. Delicious.

These are tasty, filling and will easily get you through till lunch.


Beans with Spinach and Tomato


Heat a small can of baked beans in a small pan, add one chopped tomato and a handful of  baby spinach, heat until spinach is wilted and beans are heated through. Serve on a slice of whole grain toast.

This has heaps of protein and is really filling.


Peach and Blueberry Oats


Cook a sachet of quick oats according to directions using skim milk. When done, smooth and creamy, top with 5 pieces of canned peaches and a handful of fresh blueberries. Drizzle with honey and devour!

The combination of peach and blueberry is divine.


Salmon and Cream Cheese Muffins


Toast one english muffin, (whole grain is best) then smear with light cream cheese and gently top with smoked salmon. Add some cracked pepper and enjoy.

The salmon is a great weekend treat.


I have been enjoying trying some new things for breakfast, it makes it easier to get up in the morning with something to look forward to!

  1. Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something
    unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
