Great Healthy No-Added-Sugar Breakfasts

Related To:

Halloween may be behind us, but we'd bet that lots of people are having all-candy breakfasts this week. The occasional candy bar aside, there are definite health issues with an all-sugar diet. One way to keep total intake in check is to cut it out where you don’t need it, so that you can leave room for when you really want a treat. A great place to start is breakfast, which (candy aside) is often an unnecessarily sweet meal. Here are 15 breakfasts that show you how to start your day without sugar.

Multigrain toast topped with…
  • Avocado and red pepper flakes
  • Avocados, sliced red onions and tomatoes, drizzled with balsamic vinegar and fresh basil
  • Cashew butter, apple slices and toasted coconut flakes
  • Cream cheese and smoked salmon
  • Olive oil, tomatoes, feta cheese and toasted walnuts

(Note: Most sliced breads have some sort of added sugar. Make sure to scan the ingredient list or buy a loaf from your local bakery.)

Steel-cut oatmeal topped with….
  • Peanut butter, bananas and milk
  • Corn, black beans, jalapeños, scallions, cotija cheese, cilantro, chile powder, lime juice and salt
  • Sauteed peppers, onions and chickpeas with zaatar
  • Coconut cream, pineapples, salted peanuts, sriracha and cilantro
