EMS Nutrition #4 – Breakfast Recipes

January 24, 2012 § Leave a comment

Alright, well I hope you didn’t skip breakfast waiting for the delicious breakfast recipes I meant to share yesterday.  You can be sure that tomorrow’s breakfast will be great, if you choose one of these recipes!  I’d like to take credit for them, but I can’t.  I’m including the links from where I picked them up.  Also, if you have special dietary issues, make sure to make the appropriate adjustments!


Smoothies, when made with fruit, yogurt, and milk provide a dairy/fruit serving and normally provides about 12 oz of a drink. When a protein powder is added, you get the additional benefits of protein, vitamins, etc.  My suggestion is a simple recipe of 1/2 cup frozen fruit (instead of ice cubes), 1 cup milk, and protein powder.

Breakfast Burritos

Fruit Burrito – take a wheat tortilla, spread low-fat/non-fat yogurt, add your favorite fresh fruits, roll, and eat.

Sausage, Egg, and Cheese – Scramble eggs, brown sausage, add to tortilla and top with cheese

Breakfast Sandwiches
Prepare a breakfast sandwich the night before or just before you head out the door. Whole-wheat English muffins or bagels are fiber-packed ways to start your sandwich. Add chopped hard-boiled egg, sliced bell peppers and sliced tomatoes
Hot Cereals

Hot cereals, such as oatmeal or porridge, supply you with a healthy dose of fiber, but they can also be prepared in just a few minutes to take to work with you. Instant versions can be heated in your office microwave in less than five minutes. Pack a banana or sliced strawberries to top your oatmeal to add flavor and nutrients. Stir a bit of peanut butter into your hot oatmeal or porridge and your breakfast will also boast a good dose of energy-supplying protein.

I hope this has given you a few more ideas about the choices you have for breakfast!  Until next time!
