Breakfast inspiration?

I recently started to try to improve how and what I eat. The one area I have struggled with is breakfast. I stopped eating breakfast way back in 2005 as a teenager as I was always in a rush first thing in the morning. It then became a habit, which out of laziness I have never been bothered to fix.

I have now just started eating it again but all I have been able to manage is a plain crumpet or a banana.

I'm looking for breakfast ideas to get me back into enjoying this meal as right now it still feels like a chore. Hopefully eating a good balanced breakfast will cause me to snack less!

I suggest you join the Daily Diary, Lauren, for dozens of different ideas and look in the Recipes/Meals/Snacks Topic :)

Have a look at the breakfast ideas on the Change4Life Smart Recipes app. My favourite is the French toast and fruit, (made with fruit loaf dipped in egg, dry fried, served hot with strawberries and a dollop of Greek yogurt or creme fraiche). Delicious!

I have always struggled with breakfast too LaurenS91 but I now really enjoy my breakfast because I eat late, between 9-10am (after a normal 6.30-7am start). I also find because I don't nibble in the evenings I am hungry by this time. When I was working I would eat my breakfast at morning break. I really do find I eat less throughout the day if I have a good breakfast, but some people cope fine, it's finding what works for you 😊.

Avocado on whole meal toast with a poached egg on top.

(When I am feeling indulgent and allowing myself toast)

"Dippy Eggs" are my favourite 😁 or scrambled with smoked salmon . When I started my weightloss I switched from cereal to eggs , or avocado, greek yoghurt and it satisfied me right through the morning. Suddenly the old elevenses biscuit habit was a thing of the past. Ive been maintaining my bmi ( 22.) for two years now and my breakfasts have made that so much easier.

overnight oats are my go to breakfast now. Make it the night before and you just grab it out the fridge the next morning, can even take it with you if you have stored it in a lidded container.

Skyr yoghurt with blueberries, strawberries with a banana sliced on top. I get the yoghurt and fruit ready the night before in a pot in the fridge. I use frozen berries which thaw in the fridge overnight. Slice the banana on top in the morning (tried doing it the night before but it goes mushy). Then lid back on and eat at work. I find it really tasty and filling.
