Hello, my dear friends. In my previous article, I have mostly discussed healthy breakfast ideas. You can check it out here. In this article, I would mostly stress on the top healthy breakfast recipes which everyone must know. These are not only healthy but require less preparation time.
Some Easy and Healthy Breakfast Recipes
1) Oat Meal:
This is primarily suitable for persons who can tolerate the intake of oats. Oats are rich in fiber, antioxidants, Protein, Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids.
Scientists claim that consumption of whole oats lowers the cholesterol levels in our body. We can see this clearly on Patanjali oats and some other labels.
I personally prefer oats with milk. It is one of the best combinations. Milk is a good source of calcium, Vitamin A, C, D along with a good amount of protein. A glass of milk contains approximately 8 grams of protein. So, the total amount of protein increases with this meal as oats contain 11-12 grams protein per 100 grams.
Oats Upma :
Well, oats upma is one of the tastiest recipes which you can cook at home. All you have to need is to follow the procedure:
1) Oil / Ghee
2) Curry leaves
3) Mustard seeds (1 tablespoon)
4) Onions (1)
5) Tomatoes (1)
7) 2-3 sliced green chilies
8) Ginger- Garlic paste
Step 1: Take a pan or cooking bowl and add some oil into it. Add Curry leaves, Mustard seeds, 2-3 sliced green chilies, and Ginger-Garlic paste.
Step 2: Add few chopped onions, tomatoes and add few vegetables of your choice like finely chopped beans, carrot, cabbage, etc and allow it to cook for a while. Now add some water in it and closed vessel with a lid for few minutes.
Step 3: Add a cup (35-40 gm) of oats to it and add some water to it( depending on the water you added in the previous step). Allow oats to cook for a while and occasionally stir until the dish is ready to eat. If you prefer, garnish it with sliced coriander leaves, nuts, and lemon juice.
Oats with Milk:
- A glass of Milk
- 2 teaspoons of Honey
- 35 grams of Oats
- Nuts and other Fruits
Pour a glass of milk in an empty vessel and add 35gm of oats into it. Boil the mixture for 3-4 minutes on a low/medium flame. Garnish it with nuts and fruits. Nuts are rich in protein and have unsaturated fatty acids which are good for your heart.
2) Roti / Chapatis:
Rotis and Chapattis also have a good amount of protein in comparison to Rice. These are rich in dietary fiber which helps you to feel fuller for longer.
Have 2-3 rotis with Dal. Dal is rich in protein. Having Chapattis/ Rotis with legumes like Soya, Beans (red, black, regular) is also a good option as these have a decent amount of protein. These are also rich in unsaturated fats which are suitable for your health. This is one of the healthy breakfast recipes which I consume daily in a regular routine.
This is one of the best alternatives to oats. Quinoa has less number of calories than oats. So this is perfectly suitable for a weight loss program. I personally don’t consume it as it has less protein than oats.
Consume it just like oats, with milk. Most of our film actors consume this to control weight.
4) Whole Wheat Bread with Paneer ( or) Vegetables (or) Peanut Butter
This is one of the ideal breakfast as whole wheat bread is rich in protein. Paneer is also rich in protein. This is a procedure to make a simple and delicious paneer sandwich. You can try it with different vegetables too. You can use peanut butter if you want to have something with less preparation time.
1) Whole Wheat Bread ( 4 slices)
2) 1/2 cup of paneer
3) Coriander leaves
4) Tomato Sauce
Take 4 slices of bread and take ½ a cup of paneer and mix it well with your favorite seasonings and spices. Add a few coriander leaves, tomato sauce, and onions to taste good. Now keep the mixture in between two bread slices. Keep it in a toaster.
