By The Protein Bread Co.
Amongst all the sugar-filled cereals on our supermarket shelves, there are the occasional good one. But I always get sick of them so quickly, and I find they’re usually quite bland. But, thankfully there are some easy, low carb breakfast options that don’t involve cereal!
Have a look at the list below and hopefully you’ll get inspired to try a few for yourself.
- Protein Bread – Can’t do without your toast for breakfast? We’ve got your back, our protein bread has only 1.7g carbs per serve (that’s 2 slices) – so Protein Bread Co. mix. 10% off at Spartans Gym during Septemberthere’s no more guilt! Enjoy toast with peanut butter again, a fresh sandwich for lunch, French toast on the weekends or croutons in your salad!
- Protein Pancakes – Pancakes don’t just have to be a weekend treat – our Protein Pancakes have only 2.5g carbs per serve! So you can enjoy a full pancake stack or just a few pikelets in a container on the go. They’re the perfect low carb breakfast that keeps you full for ages. We also have a few topping recipes that you might like to try on our website!
- Breakfast Bars – These are always such an easy option for a busy week. Just bake a batch on the weekend and have them ready to grab in the morning. We have three great breakfast bar recipes for you to try on our website!
- Chia Porridge – As an alternative to oat porridge, you can try a chia porridge – it won’t get you the exact same thing as oat porridge but a great option for someone who follows a FODMAPS diet (you might still need to adjust this breakfast idea depending on how sensitive you are) or if you’re gluten intolerant.
- Scrambled Eggs – Scrambled eggs are the best – just whip up a few, add a splash of milk and seasoning and pour them into a pan. So easy! They’re also great to add some favourite veggies too – tomato, spinach, kale, avocado…Whatever takes your fancy! Add a bit of feta or bacon as well for some extra flavour.
- Smoothies – Smoothies have become a bit of a fad – but they can actually be really great if you use the right ingredients. Things to keep out of your smoothies:
• Banana– well, not completely. But think about lowering the amount of banana you include, as it’s a high GI food, meaning it releases its energy really quickly, rather than giving you a sustained energy boost.
• Yogurt – replace with coconut water! Much less fat but keeps it a bit creamy.
• Mango – One of Australia’s favourite summer fruits, but has a very high sugar content.
- Frittata – Easy peasy breakfast that you can make in advance – have it on toast or as a sandwich. Eggs are great as they go with so much and add so much good stuff into your diet. Did you know that some eggs contain all eight essential amino acid that we need in the diet? But it depends n what the chickens at before laying the eggs – so always read the carton and make sure you’re buying good quality eggs.
