12 Quick Healthy Breakfast Ideas To Help You Lose Weight

Ok, so do you know what you should be eating as far as protein, fiber, and healthy fats?

Breakfast is very important. Your entire day can depend on the way you start it. If you start by putting bad stuff in your body then you will crave those things all day long.

To get the fuel you need for the day to prevent you from binge eating later in the day you need to start off with a combo of nutrients. You should be aiming for roughly 5-10 grams of fiber from a carbohydrate, 14-20 grams of protein, and around 7-13 grams of a healthy fat.

If you get the right mix of nutrients then you can have more energy for the day and this can help so much with focus, mental clarity, and will power.

Why do you need all of these different nutrients you ask?

The fiber helps absorb water to keep you fuller longer. This will prevent you from being starving by lunchtime. Fiber can also help with digestion and keep you from feeling bloated.

Protein and healthy fats will help slow down the digestion of fiber, sugar, and carbs. This helps level out blood sugar levels which prevents crashes.

Breakfast should be between 300-350 calories.

Try a few of these suggestions for healthier breakfast ideas.

Cheese Burger Sliders

These cheese burger sliders are amazing!

We made them for our Super Bowl 50 party and just fell in love!

Note: You can not pick these up and eat them with your hands. They are messy. But messy is always good. Right?

Here is what you will need to make these delicious sliders.

Ingredients needed:

  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon mustard powder
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2 cups diced onion (about 1 whole onion)
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (10-oz) can Ro-Tel Diced Tomatoes and Green Chiles, drained
  • 12 slices cheddar cheese
  • 12 dinner rolls

Directions:

1- Brown the ground beef.

2- Add the seasonings and onions.

3- Drain the excess grease and add the garlic.

4- Add the drained tomatoes and mix.

5- Place bottom half of dinner rolls in a baking dish (9×13) that has been greased.

7- Place 12 slices of cheese on top of the beef mixture.

8-Place the top half of the dinner rolls on top of the cheese.

Our family really loved these cheese burger sliders. They are a mix of sweet and salty which is a total win for me. With the bread and the glaze being sweet mixed with the beef and saltiness of the other ingredients it is a perfect combination. We made these for our party and they were a big hit. We will be making these again soon.

Hope your family likes these as much as we do!

Simple Carrot Cake Recipe

By January 26, 2016 Recepies
carrot cake

This is one of my favorite cake recipes and also my go to when I need a good quick cake.

I have tried numerous carrot cake recipes and either they were not moist or just not very good but this one is by far the best I have found.

This is a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting.

I hope you enjoy this as much as we do.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups oil

2 cups sugar

4 eggs

2 cups plain flour

1 tsp. salt

2 tsp. cinnamon

2 tsp. baking powder

1 1/2 cups grated carrots

1 cup broken pecans (optional)

 

Cream Cheese Frosting Ingredients:

1 stick margarine

1 box confectioner sugar

3 tsp. vanilla

1 (8oz) cream cheese

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Grease pan (I prefer a bundt pan)

1- Mix oil(1 1/2 cup) and sugar(2 cups)

2- Beat (4) eggs well and then add to mixture

3- Add dry ingredients (2 cups flour, 2 tsp cinnamon, 2 tsp. baking powder) and blend well

4- Add carrots (1 1/2 cups) slowly

5- Add pecans (1 cup) blend well

Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or 50 minutes in a 9×13 inch pan

While the cake is cooling prepare your icing.

Mix all Frosting ingredients together and blend until smooth. It is best to get all cold ingredients to room temp while making the cake batter. They will mix better when they are not super cold. Slowly add the confectioner sugar so it doesn’t get everywhere.

When cake is cooled completely spoon, spread, or drizzle the icing/frosting on the cake and enjoy.
