1. Greek Yogurt and Raspberries
A breakfast that’s high in protein can help you feel fuller all day, according to a study published in the British Journal of Nutrition. Plain Greek yogurt provides nearly double the amount of protein compared to regular yogurt with about the same number of calories. Combine it with a cup of raspberries for a hint of sweetness and flax meal for healthy fats.
2. Grapefruit and Poached Eggs
Don’t worry, we’re not bringing back the grapefruit diet. Nevertheless, a study published years after the fad came and went found that eating half of a grapefruit before meals significantly impacted weight loss. Follow it with two poached eggs for a healthy dose of protein. Just don’t toss the yolks. A 2010 study in the journal Nutrition Research found that eating a breakfast of whole eggs helped study participants feel fuller and eat less for a full 24 hours. Add a piece of sprouted whole-grain toast and a teaspoon of butter, and you’re still only at a mere 300 calories. Get the recipe for grapefruit and poached eggs.
3. Raw Fruit and Nut Bars
Just-Like-Lara Bars Some breakfast bars contain more than 30 ingredients and 30 percent of their calories from added sugar. Instead, whip up a simple combination of nuts and fruit in your kitchen to make your own healthier version. With their monounsaturated fats, nuts help keep belly fat at bay, and they’re perfect for mornings when you’re on the go. Plus, eating instead of drinking your calories leads to greater satiety. Pretty convenient when you’re trying to shed pounds. Get the recipe for raw fruit and nut bars.
