Breakfasts Under 300 Calories

Breakfast affects the way you metabolize glucose throughout the day. After a healthy breakfast, you probably won’t be hungry until lunch. However, if you skip breakfast, your hunger hormones kick in, resulting in overeating later in the day (which can cause large swings in glucose, increasing your risk of diabetes).

The best way to eat a healthy and diet breakfast every morning is to prepare your meals in advance.

Leek and Bacon Pie

You might be wondering what breakfast is without bacon. Even if your average bacon strips aren’t the healthiest option out there, there are ways to enjoy bacon guilt-free. For example, you can use turkey bacon instead – but do so sparingly and choose lower sodium varieties. Turkey bacon has less saturated fat and calories than traditional bacon, but they’re still there.

You can also try this leek and bacon pie, which provides a nice balance between vegetables and meat, with only 213 calories.

Turkey Sausage Egg Muffins

If tofu isn’t really your thing, and you’re more of a meat lover, that’s totally fine. It’s still possible to have a healthy, meaty breakfast that’s under 300 calories.

Cheddar Egg Muffins (originally found in the Wheat Belly Cookbook) contain ground turkey, egg, cheese, broccoli, and oregano, among other ingredients. Turkey is a great alternative to red meat and contains protein, vitamin B6 (which helps your nerves), selenium (a mineral that supports immunity) and niacin, a type of B vitamin that supports circulation. This convenient breakfast food has only 150 calories per serving.

Yogurt parfait

If you want a simple and quick, healthy breakfast, look no further. You can prepare Granola Yogurt Berry Parfait in a few minutes with plain yogurt, granola, honey and fresh fruit (raspberries, strawberries, and blueberries). You get the benefits of granola (high in fiber and iron) and the antioxidant power packed in berries.

Not only that, but you can also change it up a bit by adding lemon and swapping the granola for kiwifruit, which has vitamin C and can lower blood pressure. Lemon Breakfast Parfait has just 146 calories.

Peaches and cream smoothie

Smoothies are a hugely popular breakfast food, and it’s easy to see why – they’re quick, healthy, tasty and on-the-go. One great smoothie recipe you have to try is the 231 calorie Peaches and Cream recipe. It contains peaches, of course, which give you the benefits of the 10 different vitamins they contain, including vitamin A (important for maintaining healthy vision). Peaches also contain antioxidants, which you’ve probably heard are good for cancer prevention. The recipe also calls for buttermilk, honey and half a banana (so you can get some potassium).

Scrambled egg wrap

Eggs are a staple when it comes to breakfast. It’s also good because eggs are full of protein. In fact, they have all the essential amino acids. But sometimes it gets boring to eat them the same way over and over again.

This 258-calorie scrambled egg recipe can change that. Some of the ingredients it calls for are: sautéed green and red peppers, tomatoes, eggs, and tortillas. Bell peppers have anti-inflammatory effects and are high in vitamin C, but the highest concentration of the vitamin can be found in red peppers.

Baked Blueberry and Peach Porridge

This Baked Blueberry Peach Oatmeal is like summer in a bowl. And who doesn’t like summer? Simply mix oats with brown sugar, baking powder, salt, egg whites, egg, milk, oil and vanilla. Once your mixture is well mixed, stir in the peaches and blueberries and bake for about 40 minutes.

Baked Blueberry

The ingredients in this 277 calorie dish are really tasty and healthy. Blueberries (in addition to those amazing antioxidants) help lower cholesterol, and the pigments in them have been found to prevent hypertension.

Quinoa eggs baked with thyme and garlic

If you want to make a nutritious breakfast for your family or have leftovers to last you through the next few mornings, this Thyme and Garlic Quinoa Egg Casserole is perfect. Quinoa serves as a crust for the egg and spinach layers in this dish. Quinoa is a grain-like seed that many people use as a rice substitute because it is gluten-free. It is also a complete protein and source of iron. To make it even better, this recipe only has 247 calories per serving.

Fluffy apple omelet

You might think that omelets are made with just eggs and butter (and if you’re feeling adventurous, add cheese). But have you considered adding fruit to your omelet? This fluffy apple omelet recipe makes for a tasty and light breakfast with just 252 calories.

Apples, like many other fruits and vegetables, have a high concentration of antioxidants, and these can actually help prevent Alzheimer’s disease. Their high fibre content also prevents Parkinson’s disease.

Smoothie bowl

A smoothie bowl is an alternative to a smoothie, and it’s exactly what it sounds like. You can be as creative as you want with these, but don’t get too carried away with the toppings (that’s where the extra calories come in).

If you stick to this recipe, which calls for one cup of mixed berries, a banana, and coconut or almond milk, you can add chia seeds, shredded coconut, and hemp seeds for a 214-calorie breakfast.
