Healthy Breakfast Foods for Weight Loss

 

The time of sunrise, when I make my first coffee of the day - it's my time. I love getting up early in the morning, to open the window of the summer breeze to hug me. Mornings smell of salt water and peonies now.

I love ... when at 5 am I go out with a camera to one of the beautiful places along the coast to capture the sunrise (see my favorite places to shoot here - 5 Favorite Landscape Photography Spots).

I love to go first in the gym and to do my workout for the day undisturbed by anyone.

These are my mornings. Such mornings energize me for the whole day.

I always spend some time on a tasty breakfast ... not just because I'm in the fit mode right now..... I just need this pleasure.

Here are 5 of my favorite and healthy breakfasts:

1.AVOCADO TOAST WITH FRIED EGGS

Ingredients:

1 avocado

2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

Salt and freshly ground black pepper (to taste)

2 slices multigrain or sourdough bread

1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter

2 large eggs

A pinch of red pepper

Parsley for decoration

Cherry tomatoes and cucumbers

 

Directions:

Stir a well-ripened avocado with a fork, add freshly squeezed lemon juice, salt and pepper.

Mix well and dip the toasted bread with this mixture.

Put very little butter in a non-stick coating and bake the eggs on a slow fire sprinkle with salt and red pepper.

Place the eggs on the avocado bread.

Put on top finely chopped parsley.

Serve with cucumbers and cherry tomatoes. 

 

2.OAT FLAKES WITH YOGURT AND FRUITS

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons large-flake rolled oats

1 cup plain yogurt

½ cup cherries (blueberries, sliced strawberries and/or raspberries)

½ tablespoon of raisins

Dried coconut chips as desired

 

Directions:

Mix the oats with the yogurt.

Leave for 10-15 minutes in the fridge (or overnight).

Add the fruits and raisins.

Decorate with dried coconut chips as desired.

Enjoy a delicious breakfast!

 

3.OVERNIGHT CHIA PUDDING

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon chia seeds

½ tablespoon of large-flake rolled oats

1 cup plain yogurt

1 teaspoon of cocoa powder (I prefer bio raw cocoa)

½ tablespoon honey

½ cup grains of pomegranate (strawberries, raspberries or other optional fruits)

Raw almonds and dried coconut chips - optional

 

Directions:

Stir the milk with chia seeds, oats, cocoa and honey. Here you can add 15 grams of whey chocolate protein (optional).

Leave in the fridge at least 30 minutes or overnight.

Add the fruits, decorate with raw almonds and dried coconut chips.

Enjoy!

 

4.ALMOND MILK QUINOA WITH FRESH FRUITS

Ingredients:

½ cup of quinoa

¼ tablespoon cinnamon powder

1 ½ cup of almond milk (can be replaced with cow-milk)

½ cup of water

1 tablespoon of coconut sugar (can be replaced with brown sugar)

Pinch of vanilla powder

Pinch of salt

Banana, blueberries or other fruits.

Raw almonds and dried coconut chips as desired

 

Directions:

Heat a dry pan on moderate fire and add the quinoa.

Add cinnamon and stir frequently for 1 minute.

Add almond milk, water, vanilla, sugar and salt.

Let it boil, then lower the fire and cook on low heat until the grains soften - about 25 minutes.

Stir from time to time. If necessary, add some more water during cooking.

Do not let the liquid evaporate completely, it should become creamy.

Serve with fruits, raw nuts and coconut chips.
