Oats are easy to make and full of great nutrition. Not only are they good for you, there are tons of options for savory or sweet variations. Try adding berries, bananas, or even coconut shavings. Oatmeal is hearty, so it keeps you feeling full longer and can stop mid-morning snacking in it’s tracks. If you’re trying to lose weight, cutting out snacking is a great first step. Try some dressed up oatmeal for breakfast; you won’t be disappointed, and your stomach will thank you.
Go for a classic breakfast and eat some low-fat yogurt with a little fruit and a granola topping. This simple parfait is great for on the go, and like oatmeal it keeps you feeling full for a while.

Rock your morning with a hearty whole wheat sandwich. Load it up with sliced veggies and a little humus, and give it a quick grill. When buying bread, make sure you choose an option that says it’s 100 percent whole grain or similar, and look at the list of ingredients to make sure flour isn’t first on the list. Choosing a truly whole grain bread will ensure you get the low fat and high fiber you’re looking for.
If a more traditional breakfast is your style, go for protein-rich eggs in the morning. Fry an egg sunny-side up, and put it on a piece of whole grain toast with some sliced tomato. This breakfast might seem too good to be true, but when you choose the right bread and vegetables, it can be a healthy and balanced start to the day.
