Breakfast, for me, is essential. It gives me a much-needed energy boost for the rest of the day. (A few cups of coffee don’t
hurt either!) But this time of year—having overindulged in too many rich foods over the holidays—I’m looking to cut excess
calories from my day wherever I can. I head off winter weight gain with low-calorie meals
most importantly at breakfast.
Here are three of my favorite low-calorie breakfast recipes
—packed with fresh cranberries’
sour spike and ready in 20 minutes—always start my day off right! I can whip them up on Saturday morning before I head out to
Baked Apple-Cinnamon French Toast
my go-to breakfast item when guests are visiting. It’s quick to assemble and can be made the night before and finished in the
oven the next morning. The best part is it’s low-calorie, leaving me room to indulge later in the day.
A Mini Mushroom-&-Sausage Quiche
paired with a Savory Breakfast Muffin
, is a
great way to break away from the weekday calorie-conscious monotony of toast and yogurt or a bowl of cereal. What I like
about both of these recipes is that I can make them on Sunday night and portion them out throughout the week. There’s enough
to feed my fiancé and me all week.
