Four Breakfast Recipes that Can Make You Feel Fuller for Longer

Are you trying to lose weight but to no avail? Do you already feel hopeless about your weight loss journey? I know that sometimes losing weight may seem impossible, especially if you do not see any difference. Your weight loss motivation might already be gone at this point but please do cling to the hope that is still left. Hold on. Things will get better in no time.

Many people claim that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, because that is the time when you will be giving your body the fuel it needs for the activities that you will do the entire day. Because of this, what you eat during your breakfast is important.

If you wish to lose weight, you need to do more than drink laxatives—you have to eat the right breakfast. The right foods for breakfast are those that will keep you full for long hours so you can reduce your caloric intake and ward off unhealthy cravings.

With that in mind, here are some of the breakfast recipes that you should try:

1.) Toast With Baked Eggs And Avocados

We already know that eggs are loaded with protein, making it one of the healthiest breakfast staples you can ever have. Add in avocadoes (which is rich in good fats and proteins too), and you have a breakfast power house. Here’s a simple recipe from Lui Cucina.

Ingredients:
1 medium-sized avocado
2 pieces of eggs
1 piece of bread
Instructions:
Cut avocado in half lengthwise. Remove the pit. Using a cookie cutter, create a hole in the middle of the avocado halves. Coat the skillet with oil and place it over medium heat. Place the avocado halves there. Crack the egg and place it in the hole of the avocadoes. Raise heat to a medium. Cover the skillet. Cook avocadoes for 2-3 minutes. Sprinkle salt and pepper on top. Serve with a toasted piece of bread (sliced in half).

2.) Strawberry Protein Smoothie

Many people think that they will only need protein if they intend to grow their muscles. Well, protein is beneficial for weight loss too. For one, protein can boost your metabolism and help to reduce hunger pangs. This smoothie also has strawberries which are rich in fiber and will keep you full for long. Take a look at this recipe from Real Simple.

Ingredients:
1 cup of low-fat milk
A cup of frozen strawberries
A scoop of protein powder
Instructions:
Slice the strawberries into tiny pieces. Place the strawberries in the blender. Add in the milk and protein powder. Blend until you have achieved a smooth and creamy consistency. If you have no frozen strawberries, you can use fresh strawberries, just add ½ cup of ice to the mix.

Create a well in the center of your flour mixture. Pour the milk mixture into it. Using a fork, stir it well. Make sure no big clumps of flour will form. Mix until thick.
Place a large skillet over medium heat. Brush it with melted butter. Add about ¼ cup of batter into the skillet and try to spread it evenly. Once bubbles start to appear on top of the pancakes (about 2 minutes), flip it. Continue cooking the other side for 2 more minutes. Serve with maple syrup or fruit toppings.
