If you have been reading my other blogs you know that I’m a huge foodie! Breakfast is also one of my favourite meals of the day and I’m a huge believer that breakfast is a very important meal!
I totally understand that when you wake up at 5 am it can be difficult to be hungry. I’m usually always hungry, but I do have times where it’s a bit too early for me to eat. I’m going to be giving you some breakfast ideas; whether it’s a nice weekend breakfast spread, quick on the go meals or just my normal favourites! I, for the most part have the same breakfast every single morning, even when I’m not hungry I eat, just to get my meals down for my macro goals! Here are so many ways to eat eggs and get your protein down! I don’t get sick of my same breakfast, but I’ll give you more ideas to help you create something delicious, so that you can say no to skipping your morning meal and feel more energized throughout your day!
Eggs With Avocado Toast
I always add egg whites into my morning breakfast. I usually do one egg and 3/4 cup or 1/2 cup of egg whites. I love adding Coconut Oil in the pan for some extra flavour. I have one slice of toast and make my avocado concoction! I add some pepper, salt, and some lime juice for the mixture then spread it all over my toast! I’ve been OBSESSED with avocado on toast! So delicious, creamy, and filling! This is basically what I have every morning, it’s tasty, quick to make, and easy to go down at an early time!
Poached Eggs With Avocado Toast
These are GREAT and delicious! I enjoy these during the week if I’m not too hungry or on the weekends to switch up my breakfast! You can’t go wrong with 2 poached eggs topped with pepper on top of bread and a blanket of avocado! You can also add one slice of bacon with some hot sauce on top for some extra flavour! Trust me, one small slice of bacon is enough to give you that bacon taste without hurting your fitness goals!
Tip: Maybe it’s the way I trained my brain, but a good way of being able to eat some “unhealthy” foods that you enjoy is obviously moderation, but also just having a small portion of something. Bigger is not always better! Enjoy a small piece of bacon, but don’t have like 6 slices! One slice is plenty and VERY salty, so it’s definitely enough. Learning to strengthen your self-control is important! Read Willpower 101 to dig a little deeper and figure out how to train your mind!
Why is oatmeal heavenly? Uh, because it’s so versatile! You can have warm oats, overnight cold oats, chocolate oats, PB oats… OK, I think you get it now… 😉 I did write about 5 of the best overnight oats recipes that are packed with protein and have the macros attached!
(5 Overnight Oat Recipes).
Oatmeal makes a great breakfast option because it’s quick, flavourful, filling, and tastes good with coffee! Oatmeal is great for those people who need to grab their food and hit the door. Make them the day before and you have a breakfast that will give you the energy you need to survive your crazy day at work! Don’t forget to add a scoop of protein to it! It’s a win win! It will keep your belly satisfied longer with a decent amount of protein!
Who doesn’t love pancakes?! If you don’t like them we can’t be friends! As much as I love my homemade old fashioned pancakes, Kodiak cakes are a protein pancake mixture that has great macros! Unfortunately they aren’t in Canada! I’ve ordered it on Amazon! Top it with some sugar free Walden Farms syrup or just enjoy life and if you’re feeling extra have some maple syrup! After all, I’m from Canada and some of us take maple syrup very seriously! I enjoy pancakes on the weekend as a treat if I’m craving it! I can’t really just eat pancakes on it’s own, I love getting in my protein so I’m ahead of the game, so I usually do eggs on the side!

Just like oatmeal, omelettes can be made so many different ways! Chop up some onions, tomatoes, and mushrooms and sauté them before you add them into your eggs. YUM! Mushrooms taste so good when you cook them with a little bit of oil. You can also add salsa, hot sauce, some cheese because life. You can’t go wrong with really stuffing your omelette. It’s really satisfying and full of flavour! Have this with a slice of toast, oats, or some fruit!
Scrambled Eggs And Home Fries
This is great to change up your egg texture and add some delicious crispy home fries. No, not store bought. With a little prep time this makes it a wonderful breakfast to enjoy on the weekend. Chop up some potatoes to the size you prefer, add them into a bowl some with olive oil and seasonings and bake them until brown and crispy.
Filling Protein Shake
I say filling because, have you read my “Muscle Gainer Shake Recipes?”. My recipes that I have posted are great for those who want to gain weight and bulk up. HOWEVER, you can still adjust the ingredients to make it not as high in calories. I don’t believe in meal replacements, however these shakes provide your protein, carbs, and fats, and is great for on the go quick breakfast or even snack to fill you right up. These shakes can consist of milk, egg whites (it’s extra protein and it doesn’t taste like anything), protein powder, oats, maybe some PB or almonds. etc! I have added a whole list of what you can add in them to make it clean and yummy. Make sure to read the article to get a better idea. 🙂 Just make sure to blend it good to break up the oats a bit more. These shakes are filling no matter how you make it.
If I’m not hungry for my normal breakfast I will have this since it has all the nutritional needs that Incorporate for my daily intake. Or I’ll just have a normal protein shake with PB + honey on toast.
Egg Sandwich Or Wrap
Using english muffin, yummy rye bread or a tortilla, making a sandwich or a wrap can be very scrumptious! Adding hot sauce, ketchup, crunchy veggies and some cheese!
These are fun to make and you can even meal prep these and just warm them up the next day. Use eggs, egg whites, or both and put it into muffin tins and add some chopped up ham, onions, mushrooms etc.
These are similar to the protein bites they have at Starbucks, however the ones at Starbucks only have 12g of protein, and a bunch of other ingredients you don’t need. Depending on how big your muffin tin is you can easily turn that 12 grams of protein into 27 grams! 1/2 cup egg whites with 2 eggs, (again depending how deep your muffin tin is). You can purchase the large silicone ones, which would help it plop it out easier!
Yogurt And Fruit
I prefer yogurt and fruit as a snack, but if yogurt in the morning is your thing that’s fine too! Keep in mind that plain greek yogurt is your friend. I’ve noticed in a lot of other yogurts they pack in the sugar, same with some granola you add as a topping. Always check the nutritional facts!
