After sharing my top five favorite healthy food swaps in the first edition of Eat This Not That, I’m back to share a special list of breakfast-related suggestions.

Have a favorite go-to breakfast that you want to amp up? Not sure if you’re making the best choice for your body first thing in the morning? I’m here for you!

Eat This Not That Tips – Healthy Breakfast Swaps

  1. Eat your {high fiber} cereal with no/low-sugar Greek yogurt instead of milk. It’ll keep you full longer and offers a serious dose of healthy fats.
  2. Do you have a granola habit? You could be giving yourself too much sugar first thing in the am. Try swapping your granola for oatmeal made with whole oats. Add berries and chia seeds for bonus points! {Need some ideas to spice up your oatmeal? I’ve got you covered – Heart Breakfast Oatmeal & Coconut Chia Overnight Oats}
  3. If you’re a bread lover and usually reach for a bagel to break your fast – Either trade it in for two slices of Ezekiel bread or try hollowing out your bagel. Yep, you read that right. You can scoop the bready centers out of the bagel and fill with sliced hardboiled eggs and avocado for a delicious, healthy, filling breakfast.
  4. Are you regularly having an orange, apple, or pineapple juice in the morning? You can swap it out for a whole piece of fruit, which I talked about in the first Eat This Not That post. OR you can whip up a water bottle or pitcher filled with infused water. Add chunks of fruit, mint, ginger, or whatever you’re craving to your mixture for a tasty, hydrating start to the day.
  5. Would you consider yourself a sugar junkie? Are you not fully awake or ready to tackle the day until you have a pastry or sugar-filled coffee drink in the morning? You can cut waaaay back on the sugar and make yourself a tasty banana-based pancake instead. Banana, protein power, and either eggs or egg whites. Don’t eat eggs? Swap them out for a flax or chia seed egg as a binding agent. Et voila.

Do YOU have a favorite breakfast? How would you make it healthier?
