I always start my day off with a big dose of clean protein and egg whites are my “go to” breakfast. However, they can get a bit old as they tend to be on the bland side. Therefore, I’m always looking for ways to “spice them up!” These little breakfast cups are super healthy and totally yummy.

So if you didn’t notice, I truly believe that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. In all my years as a trainer, I’ve never seen a client be successful at losing or maintaining their weight if they were not a breakfast eater.   Starting your day right sets you up for a successful day of eating and choice making in general. However, that doesn’t mean you should just grab anything. Fill your body with high nutrition, low fat food and your body will run like the amazing machine it is.

Healthy Banana Bread

Banana bread

My kids and hubby are crazy picky! None of them are breakfast eaters but as they’ve aged and matured have realized that they need something in the morning. Mostly breakfast entails cold cereal if they’ve left enough time (they are teenagers after all) or a quick grab and go protein shake. I’ve learned that one way to make sure they eat more is to have things on hand that they can grab and go. You will almost always find a fresh baked from scratch item on my counter for my picky eaters. This way I know what is going into their bodies, can sneak in what I want and they will always eat something. This banana bread is moist, healthy and down right yummy!

Ham and Aspargus Mini Quiche Cups

egg white cups

I love egg whites! While most want the yolk, I’ve grown used to and quite fond of all whites due their incredible purity, high protein and low calories. I use them in place of whole eggs as much as possible and they are my go to food for breakfast and when I want to trim down. You can eat a lot of them without a lot of calories, what could be better? This recipe makes a yummy “quiche” without all the bad stuff. Better yet, the muffin size helps with portion control and is easy to eat.

Cinnamon Muffins

cinnamon muffins

So I have teenagers which means mornings are “fast and furious” around our house. Being boys, they want to sleep until the last possible second meaning that breakfast is either “grab and go” or doesn’t even happen. Since I’m already at work (I leave the house at 5:45 am), chances of them eating something is even less likely. My oldest loves a muffin or loaf bread because it is something that he can throw into a baggy the evening before. I of course would rather them eat something healthier, but I’m a realist after all, so rather than having them skip breakfast altogether, I make it my goal to find ways to make what they will eat just a little bit healthier. This week, my son asked to “Cinnamon Muffins.” Here is my healthier version.
