If you want to lose weight, you should start doing so in the morning and pay attention to what goes on your plate. We reveal what makes a balanced diet breakfast. Delicious ideas that fight excess kilos.
Still most people spend their time at home. Some even feel so comfortable on their couch that they forget to get enough exercise. Yet it is precisely this, in combination with a healthy diet, that is more important than ever. To do something good for your body and your mind, we have put together some simple, low-calorie breakfast recipes for you.
Proponents of the fasting diet swear that skipping breakfast boosts metabolism. Critics, on the other hand, believe it’s not a good idea to forgo your morning meal. Whatever you decide, a healthy breakfast does not stand in the way of weight loss success. On the contrary, it provides vitamins, minerals and energy to start the day powerfully. Important components of the diet breakfast are carbohydrates, fruit, vegetables and protein. This way, you won’t run the risk of getting cravings during the day.
Foods for a balanced breakfast
Beware of these foods
Sandwiches and croissants
Sausage, salami, liverwurst
It’s low in calories, tastes fresh and fruity, and you can vary the fruits to your liking. Here is a recipe for a mango berry bowl:
approx. 200 g frozen berries
100 ml (vegetable) milk
Some agave syrup to sweeten
For the topping:
A handful of fruit (for example: raspberries, strawberries, mango).
Oat crunchy or granola
Put the frozen berries in a bowl and let them thaw briefly. Then put berries in a blender and add banana and some (vegetable) milk. Blend everything well. Sweeten with agave syrup if needed. Pour the creamy mixture into a large bowl and garnish the smoothie bowl with toppings of your choice. When using ready-made granola or oat crunchy mixes, make sure there is not too much sugar hidden in them.
2.Whole Grain Banana Bread.
Banana bread is a popular breakfast alternative. You can bake it the night before and enjoy it the next day. It usually lasts even for several days. Delicious and in a sugar-free whole grain version (only the fructose of the bananas), the bread is also suitable as a diet breakfast.
3 very ripe bananas
30 g applesauce (unsweetened)
70 ml vegetable oil
200 g wholemeal flour
One package of baking powder
A handful of nuts (for example walnuts or almonds)
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. In the meantime, mash the bananas in a bowl and set aside. Beat the eggs, oil and apple pulp and add the bananas. In another bowl, mix flour, baking powder and cinnamon and stir it into the banana-egg mixture. Finally, fold in chopped nuts and pour the batter into a loaf pan. Bake everything at 180 degrees hot air for about 60 minutes. Cool well and enjoy! Tip: If the dough is not sweet enough, you can add some honey or brown sugar.
3.Avocado Breakfast Wrap
For those who prefer something hearty in the morning, breakfast wraps with avocado and ham are ideal. These wraps fill you up, are healthy and taste wonderful.
2 wholemeal wraps
2 slices of cooked ham
A handful of (iceberg) lettuce
Reduced fat cream cheese
Salt and pepper
Heat the wraps in the microwave for a few seconds and spread them with cream cheese. Wash the lettuce and tomatoes. Cut everything into small pieces and spread them on the wraps. Now pit and cut the avocado into strips and put them on the wraps as well. Finally, place cooked ham on top of the lettuce. Season with pepper and salt as needed. Wrap wraps into a roll – done! Tip: When topping the wrap, make sure to leave three inches of margin at the top and bottom. This way you can roll up the wraps better at the end without anything falling out.
