Suggestions for Those Who Don't Enjoy Breakfast: Alternative Breakfast Options

 What if you're not a fan of breakfast? If traditional breakfast foods don't appeal to you, here are some tips to consider:

Don't skip breakfast: Even if you don't enjoy typical breakfast foods, it's important to still eat something in the morning.

Identify the issue: Figure out what specifically you don't like about breakfast foods. For example, if you dislike soggy cereal, try having it with cold milk instead. If texture is the problem, opt for crunchy options with plain yogurt and fresh berries. If you prefer savory flavors, consider scrambled, poached, or boiled eggs with avocado on bread toast. Keep trying different options until you discover something that appeals to your taste.

Find substitutes: You can have non-traditional options for breakfast, such as a healthy bread with cheese and lettuce or leftovers from last night's dinner. Just ensure it's a nutritious and filling choice. Including a piece of fruit will complete the meal.

Make time: Non-breakfast foods often require a bit more preparation. If you're short on time in the mornings, consider preparing your breakfast the night before and refrigerating it. Boiling a few eggs in advance or packing leftovers separately can also make things easier. Planning and preparation are key.

Non-Traditional Breakfast Ideas

If you're still struggling to find non-traditional breakfast ideas, here are some suggestions:

Smoothies: Get creative with smoothies by adding colorful fruits and/or vegetables. Use a protein source like low-fat milk or yogurt and avoid adding extra sugar. 

Sandwiches: Opt for guilt-free indulgence with options like low GI bread spread with sugar-free, salt-free peanut butter and topped with bananas. Bananas offer various health benefits such as blood pressure lowering, cancer prevention, and heart health support.

Fruit, yogurt, and almonds: Make a nutrient-rich fruit salad ahead of time, using seasonal fruits like citrus, guavas, strawberries, and apples. Top it with Greek yogurt and sliced almonds for added protein and crunch.

Avo toast with egg: Avocado is rich in antioxidants, micronutrients, heart-healthy fats, and fiber. Spread mashed avocado on low-GI bread like FUTURELIFE® Smart Bread™ and top with a boiled or poached egg for extra protein.

Scrambled eggs with leftovers: Don't let your leftover veggies, potatoes, or lean meat go to waste. Chop them up and add them to scrambled eggs for added nutrition and flavor. For a quick cooking option, scramble two eggs with milk, seasoning, and leftovers, then microwave for 35-45 seconds, stirring in between.

Health bars: When time is limited, opt for a healthy snack or breakfast bar. Choose bars that are low GI and made with high-fiber grains and fruit. Pay attention to sugar and fat content. SmartBars are examples of high-protein, low-GI bars.

Other options: Savory muffins, fish cakes, wraps, and dinner leftovers can also make satisfying non-traditional breakfast choices.

Before rushing out the door without breakfast, consider how it impacts your body and productivity throughout the day. Take the time to find a breakfast routine that works best for you, from the timing to the food choices. Ensure your breakfast is nutritious and provides ample energy. Ultimately, choose what you enjoy eating.
