7 Breakfasts That Will Keep You Full For Hours (Recipes)
Looking for some breakfasts that will actually do their job and fill you up until lunch time? Or maybe you are fasting for Ramadan and want to make the most of suhoor?
Either way, I've got you covered. In order to stay full as long as possible, it's important to focus on eating fiber, protein and maybe a few healthy fats.
If you are fasting, do your best not to overeat at iftar, or you won't be hungry enough to down a full meal at suhoor. At suhoor, drink at least two glasses of water to keep you hydrated. At night, sip as much water as you can to prehydrate. Got it? Good.
Here are some super-filling and nutritious breakfasts!
1. Egg and Avocado Toast
Ah, the oh-so-trendy but too simple and delicious to resist hipster meal! Eggs and tomatoes bring extra flavor and nutrients, though you're more than welcome to top with whatever you want -- radishes, garlic powder, cheese -- it's all good. If you don't have edible flowers, I won't judge you, but of course you'll score tons of bonus points if you serve it this way to anyone else.
2. Watermelon Cheese Kabobs
This meal is simple but full of vitamins, hydration and both protein and fat. Bulk it up by eating with some eggs or another type of protein if you want.
3. Cheesy Savory Steel Cut Oatmeal with Avocado and Fried Eggs
Oatmeal is great because it's packed with fiber and keeps you full for a while, especially when you add in that healthy fat and extra protein. This one is also easy to make for a bunch of people if you want.
4. Mushroom and Summer Squash Frittata
You can pack just about anything you want into this versatile recipe. If for some reason you have tons of time to spare, you can also skip the oven and cook this one in the slow cooker for about three hours on low.
5. Low-Carb Power Greens Breakfast Casserole with Feta and Mozzarella
This one is great because you can make it ahead of time, as it keeps for about a week and reheats well in the microwave. Eat it with fruit and toast, and you'll be set for hours.
6. Make-Ahead Fruit and Yogurt Breakfast Parfaits
"Make-ahead" means that you need to do absolutely nothing to this dish beyond grab it and eat it, which is always nice. Oat, chia seeds, Greek yogurt and fruit provide a bunch of protein, water and fiber, so it's a great investment for your belly.
7. Healthy Sweet Potato, Black Bean and Avocado Breakfast Burritos
SO. MUCH. PROTEIN. Plus, the burrito aspect also tastes a bit like something you might have for lunch or even dinner, so it's pretty mentally satisfying as well.
