5 Delicious Slimming World Breakfast Ideas
When I feel like I am losing my way a bit with Slimming World I focus on what I know works. You should always start the day on a good breakfast, it gets your metabolism going and done right can stave off hunger until lunch time!
These are my favourite go to breakfasts that are easy and delicious.
These super tasty waffles don't even feel like they are 'diet' food. They are really easy to make and my kids like them as well. I follow this Slimming Eats recipe as it has very few ingredients and usually items we have in the house. I am all about ease when it comes to recipes, the quicker I can throw something together on a busy morning the better.
This recipe uses your Healthy B of porridge although I actually save time blending my oats by using ReadyBrek. A slimming 'Mum Hack' right there!
I add different Skinny Syrups depending on what I fancy that day and top them with fruit and fat free greek yogurt. The Aldi greek yogurt is really nice and is a lot cheaper than the Fage branded one I used to get.
A few ideas for flavours for you: Sliced Banana and Choc Shot, Vanilla Skinny Syrup (in the batter), Mixed Berries and Vanilla Muller Light, Almond Extract (in batter) Cherries and Cherry Bakewell Muller Light. So many different combinations you can do!
These might sound a bit strange but are actually really nice and don't require a HexB so you can save it for later. Great on a day when you know you will want a sandwich for lunch or a burger bun with dinner.
I take 2/3 eggs depending on how hungry I am and a tablespoon of sweetener (this should be syned at 1/2 syn per tablespoon) whisk them together. I then treat this mix like I would a crepe and cook in a saucepan on a low heat in a thin layer until golden brown on both sides. It can take a while to get used to them not being 'pancakes' but with toppings these are actually quite nice.
I top mine with lemon and sugar/sweetener, golden syrup or honey (syn accordingly) and my new favourite a teaspoon of lemon curd heated in the microwave and drizzled over - YUM!
(I use Aldi Grandessa Lemon Curd for 0.5 syns per level tsp)
Yogurt and Granola
This one is easily the quickest breakfast but is so scrummy. I take a few dollops of fat free greek yogurt, top it with fruit and scatter over my HexB allowance of Lizi's Low Sugar Granola (30g). If I am feeling particularly luxurious I may drizzle over some honey or lemon curd as mentioned above. This breakfast really feels healthy and the granola is great for a low sugar alternative.
Savoury Breakfast Muffins
These are a recipe I came up with recently and are lovely for a weekend brekkie. Take a slice of wholemeal bread (half hexB) and roll it flat with a rolling pin. Cut into 4 strips and place two crossed in a Frylight sprayed muffin tray hole (are they called holes?!).
Next I do the same with a slice of ham laying the slices into the tray to fill the gaps left by the bread. You want these to act as little cups for your egg. Finally crack in an egg into the cups and sprinkle on some black pepper.
Bake in an oven at 200 degrees for 10 minutes or until the egg is cooked and the bread is golden on the edges. I have mine with a bit of ketchup. The bread goes nice and crunchy and if timed right you can get a runny yolk in the egg...I am yet to master that though!
Smoked Salmon, Poached Eggs and Spinach
The final one is one of my all time favourites. I adore smoked salmon and eggs, they are such a great combination and the spinach is speedy for weight loss boosting and all that jazz. Simply poach the eggs, I won't teach you how to do that there are so many tutorials online if you don't know how. Add the spinach into the poaching water after the eggs are done and wilt it quickly before draining. Pop the spinach and eggs on a plate with a few slices of smoked salmon, I like the peppered salmon from Aldi but any brand will do. This can also be served with toast for a more filling breakfast but is really nice on its own.
