Top 5 Metabolism Boosting Breakfasts:
Blueberry Spiced Oatmeal
1/2 Cup Rolled Oats
1/4 C Frozen or Fresh Blueberries
1 oz. Raw Almonds, chopped
Cinnamon, Splenda (or honey), Skim (or soy) Milk
Cook oatmeal according to directions. I recommend the slow cooking kind if you have the time . However, if you must rush off to work go with the Quick Oats, NOT the flavored, instant kind. (too sugary...not as much fiber). Chop up the almonds, toss in to the oatmeal along with berries and stir. Add a packet of Splenda (or a TB of Honey if you are anti-Splenda) and a dash of cinnamon. Delicious! Not only that but it is high in fiber, antioxidants, protein and whole grainand it's hearty, so it keeps you sated.
Breakfast Burrito Supremo
Whole Wheat-Tortilla Wrap
1/2 Cup Raw Egg-Whites
1 Cup Chopped Spinach
3 Cherry Tomatoes Sliced
1 oz. Skim Milk Mozzarella
Salsa (to taste)
Turn on a pan, and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Measure out 1/2 cup of egg-whites and pour in pan. Add spinach and tomatoes and scramble it up. Meanwhile, stick the tortilla in the microwave, or if you're a purist and you have tons of time, simultaneously heat a tortilla in a neighboring pan. Lucky you. Top the tortilla with 1 oz cheese and heat it to melting, top with egg-white scramble and top with salsa. Muy Deliciosa! This is a favorite of mine if I am in a rush because I can wrap it in a napkin and run out the door. (Bring extra napkins...)
1 small Whole Wheat Pitette (Tofuyan are my fave..check ingredients!)
1 TB Natural Peanut Butter (IT MUST BE NATURAL - NO HYDRO STUFF!)
1/2 TB Honey
1/2 Banana Sliced
This is great for the quickie breakfast. It's wee, but strong; you get protein,healthy fat, whole grain and yummy sweetness too!
"I Love Protein" Pancakes
1/3 Cup Low-fat Cottage Cheese
1/2 Cup Egg-Whites
1/2 Cup Oatmeal (dry)
1/4 Cup Blueberries (or any fresh fruit)
Dash of Cinnamon
Dash of Vanilla Extract
1 Pk. Splenda
1 Tb. Sugar-Free Maple Syrup (optional)
Put all ingredients in food processor and blend it up! Once blended add the blueberries. Heat that pan and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Dollop it out to the size you desire. This makes one HUGE pancake or three little ones. Cook evenly on both sides, they sort of puff up and get crazy, but don't be afraid. I think these are delicious plain. However, they are even better with sugar-free maple syrup (if you're counting cals) or honey, or, natural PB. They are also delicious cold for a between meal fix. This is a staple amongst fitness models as it is super high in protein, low in fat and sugar and only has the "good carbs."
1 Cup Plain NF Yogurt (might I recommend my absolute fave, , so creamy!)
1/2 C. Fresh Fruit of your choice, I like a sliced Banana!
Crushed Raw Nuts (I prefer Almonds)
Splenda (or honey...you know the drill)
Mix Yogurt with honey or splenda until blended. Spoon half the mixture into small bowl, add half the sliced banana and a sprinkling of nuts and cinnamon, repeat. This can also be a between meal snackaroo
