5 Free Healthy Breakfast Menus for Dieters

Below we start with 5 breakfast menus that can be used as a pattern for the most important meal of the day. That first bite ignites the metabolism for the energy burn.  

Breakfast is often filled with sweet little nothings such as donuts, pastries and pancakes.

Although sugar has the ability to quickly fuel the body, once the sugar burn is spent there may be a sudden drop in blood sugar levels - leaving the body feeling suddenly spent.  

Therefore, packing protein into the morning meal sets the stage for a slow, even burn that is built to last until the mid-morning snack rolls around. 

The following breakfast menus average about 300 calories each.  When creating future breakfast menus, by keeping the Power of Protein in mind you’ll be adding fuel and strength to your daily diet plan.

Take note that the following menus all contains about 300 kcals.
