5. Avocado Toast with Egg
- Calories: Approximately 250
Avocado toast is all the rage right now — for good reason. This simple, easy-to-make meal has a healthy dose of fat, which means you’ll feel full while eating less.
To make it quickly in the morning, grab a slice of your favorite bread (the darker and more grain-packed, the better), and toast it. Mash up ¼ to ½ of an avocado all over the bread, and season it with salt and pepper. Top it off with a sunny side-up egg and a couple squirts of hot sauce, if desired.
6. Greek Yogurt and Honey
- Calories: Approximately 150 to 200
When you’re running out the door because you forgot to set the alarm and have no time for cooking, it’s always good to have few plain Greek yogurts on hand to bring for breakfast. Skip the options with added fruit and sugar, and just buy the plain version instead. Adding your own sweetener means you control how much, and you really don’t need to overdo it. A dash of honey and some fresh berries help to make this protein powerhouse taste extra delicious.
