Three Easy Healthy Breakfast Recipes (in 10 minutes or less!)

Since breakfast is my most favourite meal of the day (and the most important if you are trying to lose weight) I thought I’d share three of my favourite healthy quick breakfast options. Enjoy!


Protein Pancakes

1 Cup Oatmeal
1 Cup Fat Free Cottage Cheese
1/2 Cup Egg Whites
2 tbsp Almond or Rice Milk
1-2 scoops Protein Powder
1 tsp cinnamon
Fruit (blueberries, bananas) if you wish!

Directions:
In blender (or in a bowl if you do not have a blender) combine oatmeal, egg whites, cottage cheese, milk, protein powder, and fruit.
Blend until creamy, and looks like pancake batter. If mixture is too thick, add more milk or water as necessary.
Heat griddle or non-stick pan on medium heat.
Pour pancake batter onto pan/griddle – cook each side of pancakes for about 4-6 minutes (depends on your griddle).
Take pancakes off once cooked and allow to cool.
Serve with unsweetened apple sauce or your favourite fruit topping.
These protein pancakes are one of my favorite breakfast options! They are so quick to make and you can add so many different flavors. My personal favorite is to use vanilla flavored protein powder – but add whatever flavour of protein powder you love!


Veggie Omelette
1/4 c onion chopped
1/4 c green/red/yellow/orange bell pepper chopped
1/4 c spinach chopped
1/4 c mushrooms chopped
1/2 cup egg whites (3 to 4 egg whites) plus 1 egg
1/4 cup Salsa
Olive Oil
Salt/Pepper to taste
Fat-Free Cheese (if so desired but no more than 1/4 cup!)

Directions:

Heat up frying pan. Add 1 tsp of Olive Oil.
Pour egg whites into heated frying pan – allow eggs to cook, move egg whites throughout pan to allow egg whites to cook thoroughly.
Add veggies, salsa and cheese to egg whites.
Fold over egg whites to envelope the veggies and salsa.
Let cook for a 2-3 more minutes.
Serve with plain oatmeal or whole wheat toast if so desired.


Mixed Berry Protein Smoothie

1/2 cup Frozen/Fresh Strawberries
1/2 cup Frozen/Fresh Blueberries
1/2 cup Greek Yogurt (can be plain, vanilla, or fruit flavored)
1/2 to 1 cup water
1-2 ice cubes
1 scoop Protein Powder

Directions:

In blender combine all ingredients.
Blend on high until all ingredients are crushed, smooth and creamy. (Add more water if necessary)
Pour into cup and enjoy!

Now you can start your day with extra energy and get your metabolism burning fat from the minute you wake up. Don’t forget to keep eating healthy meals throughout the day as well (pick the protein first), but please, DO NOT EVER SKIP BREAKFAST!!!

Does anyone wish to share what their favourite (and simple) breakfast recipe is??

    3) Oatmeal pancakes
    1/2 cup quick oats, 1/4 cup low fat cottage cheese, 4 egg whites, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp nutmeg. Process in a blender until smooth and cook like regular pancakes!! I heat up a 1/4 cup of frozen blueberries and mix with a tbsp on pure maple syrup to put on top. Yummy!!

  2. Dude, I have NEVER made protein pancakes with cottage cheese! I need to go to the store tomorrow and try this ASAP!

    • YES! Tosca Reno has an amazing recipe as well using cottage cheese and many other yummy ingredients…you can find it online (Eat Clean Diet- Power Protein Oatmeal Pancakes I think?)

  3. […] Give yourself enough time in the morning to make a good breakfast!  And no a shake does NOT count as breakfast!  Cook an omelette, make a quiche/strata the night […]
