If you are on a diet and looking to lose weight, here are some simple, easy, and healthy breakfast ideas.
Cereal for Breakfast – Diet and Weight Loss
Cheerios in almond milk! It’s a little dull, so mix in another healthy cereal like from “Nature’s Path” or “Kashi” Brands.
Add a sliced banana. Yum.
You can get all of these things at Costco, so it won’t break the bank. These super healthy cereals are heavy on natural whole grains, and Cheerios are made of whole grain oats, of course. This breakfast is insanely more healthy and more conducive to weight loss than pretty much any typical breakfast.
For most people looking to lose weight and be more healthy, this switch alone will produce great results.
Eat Oatmeal for a Healthy Breakfast When on a Diet
An alternative option to cold cereal is oatmeal. If you are hardcore and can stand it, get the non-instant, non-flavored ones and add fresh fruit like strawberries, blueberries, and banana. You can also add 100% pure maple syrup, pure organic honey, or some raw sugar.
Do NOT use artificial sweeteners or that chemical-filled corn syrupy-fake syrup.
A little less healthy is the instant sweetened packets. To be honest, even these packets are probably MUCH better than most breakfasts. A good compromise is to take a pack and to sprinkle in some plain, non-instant oatmeal with it.
Diet Breakfast Ideas – More Options
I also LOVE avocado toast. Lightly toast up some two whole wheat slices and put half of a fresh avocado in between. This tastes so much better than it sounds, is super filling, and it is packed with stable energy.
My only suggestion here would be not to double up on wheat for breakfast and lunch. I only plan on this when I have a non-wheat lunch planned out.
Another great idea, especially if you are active and on the go, such as on a hiking or surfing vacation, is healthy bars such as a “Cliff Bar”. Be VERY careful and selective when picking out a breakfast bar if you are on a diet. Many of them are just “glorified candy bars”.
Also, 99% of the “big name brand” bars that make up half of a super market store isle are totally processed and surgery junk food. These will just leave you hungry and unsatisfied.
Be sure to shop carefully and check out the ingredients. Look for 100% whole grains, natural sugar (no corn syrup!), unprocessed ingredients, and watch out for chemicals.
There are lots of bars out there that are super healthy, however, and these have just a few ingredients in them. No chemicals. In many stores, you can find a half-isle of organic foods, chips, juices, and bars – usually located near the produce section.
Health food stores are loaded with good options, but check carefully anyway.
I have a super healthy friend who eats a handful of mixed nuts in the morning and a glass of orange juice (not from concentrate) along with his morning vitamins. “Eating a bit is super important for vitamin absorption”, he says.
Mixed nuts are packed with calories and have a great nutrition to calorie ratio, allowing you to eat small amounts and remain satisfied until lunch.
