Let's think outside the cereal box!
Most cereals are packed with sugar and processed carbohydrates and have a very low protein content. We're sure you can tell why we're not fans!
And, with so many great alternatives out there, why would we be!?
So, without further ado, here are our favourite breakfast options...
- Oats with protein powder
The night before, in a bowl, mix half a cup of oats with protein powder and some milk. Leave them to soak overnight, and then in the morning either eat them cold or warmed up. This tastes AMAZING with some natural yoghurt, blueberries and nuts sprinkled on top!
- Scrambled eggs with avocado
Scramble up a couple of eggs and serve with a quarter of an avocado. Yum! If you are trying to gain weight, add in a slice of toasted brown bread… yummy!
- Protein pancakes
Wait, what!? Pancakes!? Yes!

- Breakfast smoothie
This is a delicious and fantastic breakfast for the warmer, Summer months when you don’t feel like a hot breakfast. Be warned though, once you try this, you will be addicted!
Blend together: half a banana, a handful of ice, a cup of water, a scoop of protein powder, a dozen of your favourite nuts, a teaspoon of chia seeds, some blueberries (we prefer frozen, so much cheaper!) and half a cup of natural yoghurt.
Lightly spray a small pan with oil and place it over very low heat. Scramble together three eggs and tip into the pan. Then sprinkle any of the following on top: ham, bacon, tomato, onion, mushroom, spinach, capsicum (aka peppers) and cheese.
Once the egg has cooked through (usually takes 10 to 15 minutes), carefully fold the omelette in half and then serve. If it’s too big for you, refrigerate half for your lunch and/or dinner!
And to the BBB babes out there who keep ditching the egg yolks – stop! They are full of good fats which will help keep you full through the day. Leave them in!
Enjoy your breakfast, lovelies!
