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