Fat-Burning Breakfast Ideas!

egg_scrambleAs you know, breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. It keeps you full and gives you energy, which is important when you want to become a fat-burning machine. Here are some fat-burning breakfast ideas to try out.

Egg Scramble

Eggs are a great source of protein and provide some excellent fat burning properties. A simple way to make eggs in the morning is to scramble up some eggs with a little low-fat cheese and your choice of chopped veggies. Some good options are bell peppers, onions, tomatoes, and mushrooms.

Blueberry Oatmeal Pancakes

Here is a super simple way to have a filling breakfast that burns more fat and calories, while also being delicious. Just because you are trying to eat healthier and are careful about your nutrition, doesn’t mean you can’t still have pancakes. You just might want to go from traditional buttermilk pancakes with butter and syrup, and instead have this healthier alternative. These pancakes are made with some of the regular pancake ingredients, like vanilla extract and eggs. Then you will use low-fat cottage cheese, rolled oats, and blueberries. For the top, combine yogurt with maple syrup.

Fruit Smoothie

Smoothies are easy to make in the morning when you need a grab-and-go option, but they can also be really good for you and contain fat burning ingredients. The trick here is to include ingredients that are known to burn fat, like high fiber fruits like strawberries and mango, low-fat dairy products, and greens like kale or spinach. You can make a fruit smoothie with tropical fruits like pineapple and mango, or go traditional with a mixed berry smoothie of strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries. Also remember that you can use frozen bananas instead of ice, which make the smoothie cold but also add some creaminess to it.

Almond Butter Toast

Here is another fast and easy breakfast that fills you up and burns more fat at the same time. Use whole grain bread for your toast, which on its own is great for fat burning. You will then use some almond butter on top instead of regular butter or peanut butter. On top of that, add some sliced banana. For more flavor, you can drizzle some raw honey on top, but it isn’t necessary and that adds more sugar that you might not want. One big slice of almond butter toast with banana slices can be under 300 calories, so it is a good size for a breakfast.
