5 Quick Macro-Friendly Breakfast ideas



Whenever I hit a wall or stop making progress, it's usually not because of the workouts but because my nutrition takes a back seat. When I make a plan, and I buy the foods I know will fuel me well it's easier to hit my goals, I feel better all over and I'm more productive.


Sometimes you just need a plan when you're feeling overwhelmed, not sure where to start or what to make or what will fit in your macros, or honestly what will taste good. So these are my 5 Quick Breakfast ideas. So, instead of overhauling your entire menu, start with one meal for the week. I always encourage clients to start with breakfast to set the day's tone. When you've fueled properly your brain works better, you feel full and you're not starving at the 10 am work meeting and you can power through your day.

Repeat after me, "coffee is not breakfast, coffee is not breakfast." I know it's hard not to just drink the cup of joe and be on with our day, but we all know that high comes before the fall and you don't want your blood sugar to plummet to the ground.

Let's go over a few options that will keep you full and satisfied until lunch.


Let's set a goal to eat a nutritious breakfast every day this week. Just breakfast. We aren't working on Lunch or Dinner yet. One thing at a time. Baby steps! You got this!! Comment below what option you will try this week.


These 5 options are my go-to when I'm in a hurry AND they are Macro Friendly, just log them into your daily CT fitness journal. Bonus, kids like them too!

  1. Wild Blueberry Protein Smoothie

  2. Avocado {Toast} Rice Cakes

  3. Mini Quiche Egg Bites

  4. Chia Seed Pudding

  5. Protein Donuts



1. Wild Blueberry Protein Smoothie

Wild Blueberries are packed with antioxidants. Antioxidants help protect the body against inflammation, which is thought to be a leading factor in brain aging, Alzheimer's, and other degenerative diseases. I try to incorporate Blueberries into my weekly meal prep and smoothies. You can top them on yogurt, salads, or as a snack.

My husband thinks I'm crazy, but I saved this cup from Walt Disney's World's Epcot and during the Food and Wine Festival. IYKYK haha #disneyfam



Wild Blueberry Protein Smoothie


Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup Wild organic blueberries

  • 1/2 Medium Frozen Banana

  • 4 oz Water

  • 3 oz Almond Milk


  • **Blend well**

Serve in your favorite cup and enjoy!


2. Rice Cake Avocado {Toast}

This is a perfect solution if you LOVE Avocado Toast as I do, but you don't like the gluten included in the bread. You can even use Organic Avocado Mash from the produce section they come in 2 oz servings and stay fresh longer than waiting for your Avocado to ripen.

Ingredients:

  • 1-2 Lightly Salted Rice Cake

  • Directions: Grab your Rice Cake(s), add avocado, sprinkle everything bagel season, and enjoy!



3. Grab and Go mini quiche

Eggs are a standard breakfast meal but who has time to make scrambled eggs on busy mom mornings? That's where these Mini Quiches come in handy. They are easy to prep, they are delish, and you can heat them up each morning.

  • 4 eggs

  • 2 Tbsp of Lactose-free milk

  • 1/4 cup Chopped onion

  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the Oven at 350

  2. Spray muffin pan

  3. Beat eggs with salt and pepper and add Lactose-free milk(my daughter has a dairy allergy).

  4. Add chopped veggies and spinach to the muffin pan first, then add egg about halfway full, sprinkle parm cheese on top, and then add any leftover egg mixture to full and pop into the oven! Bake for 15-20 min or until done(toothpick comes out clean)

  5. Store in an airtight container for grab and go in the mornings. You can heat 2 in Microwave for 20-30 sec to warm.
