Make it a Full Plate Meal: Choose olive oil instead of butter and double the veggies for a more filling meal. Half a cup of blueberries would be the perfect ending for this breakfast. Don’t eat eggs? Try this tofu scrabble instead.
75% fiber-water foods - baby greens/spinach, tomatoes, avocado, bell pepper, hummus, blueberries
25% foods - butter, eggs/tofu, olive oil
Recipe Note: Use egg whites instead of eggs to reduce the amount of saturated fat in the recipe.
Make it a Full Plate Meal: Pick your favorite fruit and nut toppings...or better yet, make a large batch of the quinoa and serve a different breakfast every day of the week just by swapping out the fruit. The possibilities are endless.
75% water-fiber foods quinoa, blueberries, peaches, apples, bananas
25% foods almond milk, nuts, maple syrup
Recipe Note: Skip the maple syrup and let the fruit sweeten your meal to keep 25% foods in their allotted space.
Make it a Full Plate Meal: Be sure to use 100% whole grain polenta (cornmeal), and follow cooking directions according to the package since it will take a bit longer to cook. Add a can of rinsed and drained navy beans to the veggie scramble to add more fiber to the meal. Don’t eat tofu? Add a scrambled egg white instead.
75% water-fiber foods - onion, potato, turnips, avocado, navy beans
25% foods - almond milk, olive oil, tofu/egg white
Recipe Note: Aim not to use more than 1 tablespoon of olive oil in any recipe. Use water instead of coconut milk to reduce the amount of saturated fat and keep 25% items in their zone.
Make it a Full Plate Meal: Enjoy your breakfast hash with a 25% item of your choice. Turkey sausage or a veggie sausage patty would taste delicious with this meal. Or omit the 25% and enjoy a plate full of fiber foods.
75% water-fiber foods - onion, bell pepper, garlic, fresh rosemary, red potato, sweet potato, cannellini beans, kale
25% foods - turkey/veggie sausage
Make it a Full Plate Meal: Remember, the power comes from the oats themselves and water-fiber toppings. So don't be shy with the raspberries! Add a cup of fresh or frozen as both will work here.
75% water-fiber foods old fashioned oats, raspberries, banana
25% foods milk, raspberry preserves, chocolate chips
Recipe Note: Replace the raspberry preserves with a half mashed banana - adds in the sweetness with a helping of fiber as well.
