10 Healthy Breakfast Recipes for Weight Loss

The reason why we call the first meal of the day “breakfast” is that it’s the meal that breaks the fasting from overnight sleep. The moment we wake up, our metabolism is the fastest. And when our metabolism is fast, more calories are burnt for morning activities.

Now, the calories burnt from morning activities come from stored glycogen and fats in our bodies. If we eat foods with saturated fats and refined sugar as our breakfast, we’re fuelling our bodies with our recent meal instead of our stored fuel.

Plus, refined sugar meals are faster to digest. You’ll end up getting hungry faster. The more frequent you get hunger is, the more sugar you consume. And the more sugar you consume, the more weight you gain.

So, you should have fiber and protein-filled meals instead of sugar and you’ll find recipes for these meals below.

1.  Poached Egg with Kale and Avocado

With eggs as the primary protein source, you’re bound to have tasty breakfast and a full morning. Plus there’s the kale and avocado’s vitamin C for immunity and antioxidant properties.

2.  Protein Pancakes

Forget the commercial pancake you’ve known. That variety is full of refined carbs which is unhealthy! Protein pancakes are in now. Instead of syrup, make it tastier with peanut butter and top it with whatever kind of berry you want.
