In a medium-sized bowl, mix 1/2 cup of greek yogurt and 1/2 cup of milk until smooth. Then, add 1/4 tbsp of vanilla extract, 1-2 tbsp of chia seeds (optional), and 1/2 cup of oats until well blended. Cover and store in refrigerator overnight. Serve cold, or heat up then top with walnuts and/or fruit prior to serving (optional).
Nut Butter Toast
Toast some whole grain or whole wheat bread and spread one tablespoon of natural almond butter along with a sliced banana and sprinkle with pepitas on top.
Quinoa & Fruit
Prepare quinoa with almond milk and blueberries. Any other fruit works, too - (be sure to check your list provided by your registered dietitian for ideas).
Veggie & Egg Omelette
Make an egg omelette that includes spinach and tomatoes (or other high-figer veggies) and pair with roasted sweet potatoes for a healthy, filling breakfast.
1 cup low-fat or plant-based milk, 3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt, 1 serving of fruit (blueberries, strawberries, raspberries or kiwi), protein from a nut butter, pea protein, or brown rice protein, chia/flax seeds, leafy greens if desired.
