Want a delicious, beautiful breakfast that’s low in sugar? Never fear! Here are some nutritious yet easy ideas from my #SugarFreeChallenge Week that you may enjoy!
This tasty fast breakfast only has 3.5 grams of sugar! 1/2 a bagel, topped with 1/2 avocado, sunflower seeds, and sliced cherry tomatoes.
Tomatoes and avocados are my go to bread topping on a weekly basis. Skip the butter and use a naturally creaming avocado instead. Tomaoes add a nice tangy flavor and the sunflower seeds offer protein and healthy plant fats.
Steel Cut Oat Match Fruit Bowl
This breakfast clocks in at a whopping 16 grams of sugar, BUT there’s no added sugar. The sugar is from fruit & milk sugar. Many processed cereals and breakfast bars are loaded with added sugars. Fruit is naturally sweet and will satisfy that sweet craving minus all the extra unecessary glucose.
Cook 1/2 cup of oats per direction with 1 tablespoon of chia seeds mixed in. Split into two bowls (servings). Mix 2 tsp of Matcha powder into 1/2 cup of yogurt, and split serving. Top each bowl with: 1 sliced strawberry, 1/2 kiwi, 4 blackberries and 9 blueberries. I sprinkled some dried coconut (unsweetened and natural) on top for extra yummy goodness.
The Half Wrap
I buy the burrito size tortillas because they are a better deal, but I don’t necessarily need to eat a whole one! Cut one in half and make this easy wrap. One egg (any style) on top of 1/2 avo, 2 pieces of vegan bacon, pinch of cheese, 1 cherry tomato and some hot sauce! Fold over and eat. About 1 gram of sugar and 400 calories total. Very filling! This is my go-to breakfast if I have a big day and need to power up, yet don’t want a heavy breakfast that’s going to weigh me down (looking at you, pancakes!) Again, instead of using butter or cheese, I use avocado as a nice creamy plant fat as a substitute.
