Grilled Vegetable Greek Yogurt

Yogurt with fruit is a no-brainer combination. What about yogurt with vegetables? It’s a lovely change of pace to enjoy savory rather than sweet yogurt. What you’ll do first is give plain fat-free Greek yogurt a “good fat” Mediterranean flavor upgrade by whisking it with extra-virgin olive oil, sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Then you’ll simply top it with any grilled vegetables you like. Try it with grilled bell peppers, red onion, cherry tomatoes or zucchini. It’s a terrific way to repurpose leftovers! And it provides a clever way to get vegetables in at breakfast time.[1]

Chia Breakfast Bowl

This breakfast bowl featuring chia seeds is just as easy as to make as pouring a bowl of cereal, more nutritious and tastes even better! It takes two minutes to mix all the ingredients together, place in an air-tight container and refrigerate overnight. Wake up and breakfast is ready. You can also portion out into smaller containers for a great grab and go breakfast on the run.[2]

Low-Carb Pancakes

Yes, you can have your pancakes and eat them too. Try making a big batch at the weekend and popping it in your fridge for quick breakfasts during the week. While a mixture of lemon juice and sweetener makes a great topping choice, try getting an extra protein punch with some added cottage cheese.[3]

Sweet potato, chard and turkey Sausage Hash with eggs

Here’s a scrumptious way to get veggies in the morning. This recipe showcases that you can have a rich ingredient like sausage as part of a weight-conscious diet. The trick is to keep the portion size in check, go with the leanest choice and pick a metabolism-boosting spicy option. In this recipe, vinegar beautifully balances the slight bitterness from chard while providing a delightful tanginess.[4]

Don’t give up great taste to shrink your waist! You can eat delicious breakfasts with a great variety of choices.
