6 'Lazy' Breakfast Ideas for Weight Loss

With Monique Robbins

Overnight Oats

Overnight, simply combine rolled oats with a milk substitute of your choosing (e.g., Greek yogurt or almond milk), garnish with sliced fruit, nuts, and a sprinkling of honey or maple syrup.   

Greek Yogurt Parfait

Breakfast that is both protein-rich and satiety-inspiring: Greek yogurt layered with fresh berries, granola, and a sprinkling of honey or agave syrup.  

Smoothie Bowl

In a blending bowl, combine preferred fruits, leafy greens such as kale or spinach, a protein-containing ingredient like Greek yogurt or protein powder, and a liquid such as coconut water or almond milk.   

Avocado Toast

Season whole-grain toast with mashed avocado half and drizzle with lemon juice and salt. Incorporate garnishes such as tomato slices, radishes, or a poached egg to enhance both culinary appeal and nutritional value.  

Whole Grain Cereal with Berries

Decorate a serving of whole grain cereal featuring minimal added sugars with freshly harvested fruit and a small amount of milk or yogurt. Consider cereals that are substantial in protein and fiber to aid in maintaining satiety throughout the morning.  

Nut Butter and Banana Sandwich

Almond or peanut butter should be spread on whole-grain bread before banana slices are placed on top.
