My Go-To Breakfast Ideas
Hi guys! I am often asked what I love to eat for breakfast, so here are some of my favorites! Please note that I am not implying eating these foods will help you magically lose weight. I am not a doctor or dietician, I am simply sharing what has personally worked for me, what I find tastes good, and what I genuinely enjoy. I cannot advise on specific dietary restrictions and I highly recommend you ask a medical professional for any help! :)
P.S. I am linking to the products on Amazon and other sites. I have no idea if these products are available in your local grocery stores, you will just have to search! <3

Kodiak Cakes Pancakes
I love to do my ½ cup of Kodiak Cakes (5sp) with 2 tbsp of PB2 (1sp), banana slices, and Lily’s Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chips (38 chips for 1SP). I also like to do Spring Tree Sugar Free Syrup (2 tbsp for 0SP) with mixed berries.
Kodiak Cake Waffles
It’s basically the same as above (points vary based on how much mix you use and toppings), except you use a waffle maker! Directions here.
Oatmeal and Greek Yogurt Bowls
I use 1 packet of Quaker Original Plain Oatmeal (3sp), 1 container of Dannon Light & Fit Toasted Coconut Vanilla Greek Yogurt (2sp), 2 tbsp of Spring Tree Sugar Free Syrup (0sp), and some sort of mixed fruit! You can also try honey in place of the syrup.
Smoked Salmon Toast
This is one of my absolute favorites — I eat it ALL THE TIME. I use two toasted slices of Stone Ground Whole Wheat Bread (3sp), 3 oz of Blue Hill Bay Smoked Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon (1sp), one wedge of preferred Laughing Cow Cheese Spread (1sp), topped with capers and red onions. You could also add some fruit, depending on how hungry you are!
You can customize this to make it however you want! This particular recipe includes one Damascus Garden & Grain Lavash Roll-Up (2 perforated pieces, aka one whole square, for 3sp), ½ cup of egg whites (1sp), one Applegate Uncured Turkey Hot Dog (1sp), 1 oz Horizon Mozzarella Cheese (2sp), and 1 tsp of Frank’s Chili Sriracha Sauce (0sp). You can read more directions here!
There are a ton of options and combinations you could play with! On this particular recipe, I used one Light FlatOut Flatbread (2sp), ¼ cup Trader Joe’s Fat Free Ricotta Cheese (1sp), peach slices, pomegranate seeds, and 2 tbsp of Spring Tree Sugar Free Syrup (0sp).
Let me tell you, I was NOT an avocado lover. I hated it so much, I would never have bought it before. BUT because I was doing strength training and needed healthy fats, I decided to give it another go. Glad I did! Here I have one whole ThinSlim Everything Bagel (1sp - also it is def a diet bagel and not that great), 3 oz avocado (5sp), red onion, salt, pepper, and hot sauce.
Sweet Potato Hash with Mango Salsa
This is something I just threw together because it’s what I had in the house. I actually loved it and need to make it more often! Recipe here (4sp).
Egg White Omelette with Fruit
Simple, packed with protein, and delicious! You can either use only egg whites, or sometimes I mix two egg whites (0sp) with one egg (2sp). I love to add spinach, onions, mushrooms, and cheese.
Turkey Bacon, Egg White, and Cheese Sandwich
I actually haven’t made this in forever and I should because it’s SO GOOD. I used one egg (2sp), one egg white (0sp), one Thomas Light English Muffin (3sp), one slice of Kraft Fat Free Cheese (0sp), and two slices of Applegate Uncured Turkey Bacon (1sp). Directions here.
Whole Wheat Bread with PB2 and Banana Slices
Of all the things, this is BY FAR what I eat most frequently for breakfast. It is my ultimate go-to and I love it. I use two slices of Stone Ground Whole Wheat Bread (3sp), 4 tbsp of PB2 (2sp), banana slices, and a little bit of ground cinnamon (0sp). Sometimes I add chocolate chips to it, or I’ll do chia seeds instead of cinnamon. Today I did an open-faced PB2 and jelly sandwich and it was heaven.
Whole Wheat Toast with Ricotta and Peach Slices
Another one of my new favorites! This was 6sp, more details here.
Whole Wheat Bread with Berries and PB2
Lol, can you tell I’m obsessed with bread? I have it every day and I refuse to give it up. This is two pieces of Stone Ground Whole Wheat Bread (3sp), one topped with 2 tbsp of PB2 (1sp), blueberries, and chia seeds (¼ tsp, 0sp), and the other topped with 2 tbsp of Chocolate PB2 (1sp), sliced strawberries, and chia seeds (¼ tsp, 0sp).
Quest Bar and Frozen Grapes
And last but not least, when I’m in a rush or need something on-the-go, I always do a Quest Bar (4sp) and frozen grapes!
