SparkPeople Employees Share Their Favorite Healthy Breakfasts

12 Ideas from the SparkPeople Team

We all have those days when we're short on time or lacking the motivation to prepare a complicated meal at 7 a.m. So it's nice to have easy ideas on hand to get your day started right. The people behind practice what they preach: We are breakfast eaters, too! Here are some of our favorite morning meals:

  • "Peanut butter toast or oatmeal with frozen blueberries on top." -- Sean, marketing team
  • "Egg substitute cooked in the microwave and scrambled, two pieces of 100% whole-wheat toast with red pepper hummus, orange juice and coffee." -- Tanya, resident expert
  • "Hot Mini Wheats and milk with my children." -- Rachel, resident expert
  • "A glass of juice and a yogurt mixed with fruit, homemade granola and a sprinkle of flaxseed for good measure." -- Beth, marketing team
  • "Quaker Maple Brown Sugar Weight Control Oatmeal,with either a 1/2 of banana or 1/2 cup fresh blueberries and 2 Tbsp chopped walnuts." -- Nancy, resident expert and certified running coach
  • "Half a whole-grain bagel with natural peanut butter and a piece of fruit on the side (usually a banana or strawberries)." -- Tami, marketing team
  • "My favorite quick breakfast is dry cereal: 3/4 cup of mini shredded wheat for nutritional boost and 1/2 cup Honey Bunches of Oats with almonds for the flavor factor, 1% milk and 1/2 a grapefruit." -- Becky, resident expert and Registered Dietitian
  • "Oatmeal with nuts and often some other type of protein." -- Chris ("SparkGuy"),  founder and CEO
  • "A protein shake blended with protein powder, oatmeal, banana, flaxseed oil, water and ice. You get protein, fruit, whole grains and healthy fat all at once." -- Paul, tech team
  • "Egg white omelet, turkey bacon, and roasted peppers with a side of fruit. Breakfast is my favorite meal and I’m a bear to be around until I have it." -- Samantha, resident expert
  • "Homemade instant oatmeal: quick oats from the bulk section, plus raisins, walnuts, flaxseed, and brown sugar. Less waste, cheaper and more nutritious than the packets of instant oatmeal you can buy." -- Nicole, resident expert and certified personal trainer
  • "Weetabix with almond milk and Splenda." -- Grant, marketing team
