And again, to dispel the “I can’t go vegan because I don’t have the time/money! All vegans eat is veggie burgers and soy cheese anyway!”
10 Energizing Breakfast Ideas
1. Greek Yogurt
Packed with protein and full of flavor, Greek-style yogurt provides a rich and satisfying way to get your day started. Try adding fresh berries, low-sugar jam, or honey for added sweetness.
2. Whole Wheat Toast
Whole grains will keep you fuller, longer. Add a small amount of nutrient-rich, natural peanut butter for added protein and healthy fats.
3. Coconut Water
Filled with potassium and natural electrolytes, pure coconut water is a wonderful way to hydrate yourself in the morning or after a workout.
Filled with iron, protein, and omega-3 fatty acids, eggs provide the perfect fuel to keep you going. Try scrambling them with spinach and low-sodium turkey bacon for a more substantial meal.
5. Peanut Butter
All-natural peanut butter provides protein to keep your hunger at bay. Be sure to buy organic peanut butter as non-organic peanuts contain high levels of pesticides.
6. Steel-Cut Oatmeal
Steel-cut oatmeal is an excellent source of whole grains and cholesterol-busting nutrients. Top with a banana for an added boost of potassium.
7. Cottage Cheese
Tart and filled with protein, cottage cheese is great on its own or with fresh fruits. The combination of calcium and protein will keep your bones strong and your stomach full.
8. Fresh Berries
Filled with antioxidants, fresh berries provide added sweetness to yogurt, cottage cheese, whole grain cereal, smoothies, and oatmeal. Fresh or frozen, berries can help lower blood pressure and provide you with vital antioxidants.
9. Turkey Bacon
Low in calories and filled with protein, turkey bacon is a light alternative to heavy breakfast meats. Add to eggs, put in a wrap, or eat a serving on its own for a great start to your day.
With a low glycemic index, nuts are an energizing way to add a crunch to your breakfast cereal or whole grain waffle. Nuts such as walnuts have been shown to lower the risk of heart disease by lowering cholesterol.
