Healthy Swaps for Breakfast

Make your meals a little healthier with a few easy swaps. We’ve got some good alternatives for breakfast.

Infographic illustrating healthy food swaps for breakfast

 

Breakfast

Eat: Quinoa with raisins and walnuts

Instead of: Granola

Why? Quinoa is loaded with fiber and protein. And it has far less sugar than granola.

Eat: Omelet with peppers and onions

Instead of: Fried egg

Why? Sneak those vegetables in whenever possible! This is a great protein- and nutrient-rich breakfast.

Eat: Vanilla chia pudding

Instead of: Flavored yogurt

Why? Chia is packed with healthy fats, protein, and antioxidants whereas many flavored yogurts are loaded with sugar and lacking in protein.

Eat: Corn meal and oat waffle mix

Instead of: Regular waffles

Why? Get the same delicious crunchy waffle taste, but with a whopping 20 grams of protein.
