Most of the quick traditional breakfast options such as cereal or bagels are high in sugar, stabilizers and low quality fats, therefore it’s best you stay completely away from these while optimizing your hormones.
With that said there are 3 quick and easy options in the diet that you can make within 10 min:
- French toast.
You can use the rye bread or ezekiel bread together with eggs and egg whites in the diet to make french toast. Alternatively, if you can’t get these breads or you don’t like the taste, use whole wheat bread (try to get the highest quality bread you can with the fewest ingredients). Then use a combination of eggs and egg whites with it to make French toast.
Bread is usually not something I recommend as a staple, however if you choose a high quality one that doesn’t have stabilizers, soy, vegetable fats and sugar and have it once per day and digest it well, it won’t be a problem.
You can make a big bowl of oatmeal. Take oatmeal, pea protein powder (try to get a cocoa or chocolate flavored one if possible), cocoa or nuts, cinnamon, stevia and low sugar almond milk and put them all in a bowl and mix them together. You can also add blueberries or strawberries to this.
Cinnamon, stevia and low sugar almond milk are not in your diet however the amount of Calories you get in a normal sized bowl of oatmeal will be less than 100 therefore you will get a lot of added flavor with minimal added Calories.
You can simply subtract 100 Calories worth of the other ingredients in the meal to factor in the almond milk, stevia and cinnamon and you’ll be all set.
Then mix them together and you got another tasty meal.
3) Fruits, protein powder and nuts or cocoa.
The last option is to take a mix of fruits in the diet, nuts or cococa and pea/egg/hemp protein powder.
With the fruits you can for example use them together with pea protein powder and cocoa to create a smoothie.
Here’s an example of a breakfast smoothie you can make:
Finally, you can eat a basic meat/fish, starch (potatoes/rice), healthy fat and big bowl of green leafy vegetables breakfast. This is usually the structure that most of my clients use for their lunch and dinner, and there’s nothing wrong with using this for breakfast as well.
