Since becoming a vegetarian, I found a love of breakfast foods. I can eat breakfast for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, because it’s so easy and fast! But, as I’m trying to make over my diet, I need to reevaluate my breakfast staples.
My morning meals on weekdays usually consists of various combinations of eggs, cheese, vegetarian sausages, tempeh, and some type of bread. These aren’t necessarily unhealthy options, but variety is my problem. Having two eggs a day a few times a week is fine, but having two eggs a day everyday of the week probably isn’t the best idea. I need to add more fruits and veggies to my breakfast, and find alternate sources of protein.
This morning I ate peanut butter and a banana on a slice of whole wheat toast. I think that was pretty healthy. Looking back, I suppose this meal was a little high in carbs, but it’s a start.
I find that it’s easier for me to make more diverse meals if I have a list of things I like that I can choose from without too much thought.
Here’s my list so far:
- Scrambled eggs with veggies
- Plain yogurt with fruit
- Tofu scramble with veggies
- Oatmeal with fruit and ground flax seeds
- Hemp protein smoothies
- Spinach, yogurt, and fruit smoothies
I’d love to hear any suggestions or feedback from you, so please message me or comment if you have any.
