A recent study of nutritionists revealed that they have similar recommendations for healthy breakfasts. Many nutritionists recommended a high-nutrient meal with whole grains, fiber, and complex carbohydrates – frequently combining fruit, nuts or seeds, a lean protein, and a calcium-rich food.
Here are some healthy breakfast options the nutritionists recommended:
- Steel-cut oatmeal with dried fruit, flax and chia seeds.
- A smoothie made out of fat-free milk, frozen fruit, non-fat Greek yogurt, and oatmeal.
- Kashi GOLEAN cereal with fresh fruit.
- Organic green tea and toasted whole grain bread with nut butter.
- Two slices of millet and chia seed bread toasted with skim mozzarella cheese.
- Chia pudding with almond milk and berries.
- Any kind of Barbara’s cereals, almond milk, fresh fruit, and black coffee.
- Two slices of whole grain toast with nut butter and sliced bananas.
- Non-fat Greek yogurt with KIND whole grain clusters.
- Bob’s Red Mill oat bran, soy milk, fresh fruit, and a handful of dry-roasted, unsalted almonds.
- Fresh fruit and non-fat Greek yogurt with hemp hearts and ground flaxseeds.
- Steel-cut oatmeal with soy milk, chia seeds, cinnamon, and walnuts.
- For those who are lactose intolerant or sensitive, a smoothie made with almond milk, non-fat Greek yogurt, banana, spinach, and whey protein.
