Low-Calorie Breakfast Ideas


Yogurt And Peanut Butter

One of my favorite combinations of food is peanut butter and yogurt. A co-worker recommended this idea to me because I love yogurt in the morning, but prefer to have something with a bit more protein.

To make: I usually go with ciobani yogurt. The raspberry one. It tastes like peanut butter and jelly sandwich. And, Skippy Peanut Butter. I like to put the ingredients into a bowl for plenty of mixing room.

Note: Eat slowly. It can be very filling.

Ingredients and Calories :

  • One Ciobani yogurt – 120 calories
  • One Tablespoon of Peanut Butter – 95 calories

TOTAL CALORIES: 215

  • 1 cup frozen blueberries 0r any fruit you are in the mood for. Pineapple, strawberries, bananas to name a few

How did I get to 350 calories or below? I’ve been told that a low-calorie diet is dependent on height, weight, activity level, but I personally aim for 1200 calories per day when trying to lose weight and that seems to work out.

However, everyone is different, so you do you and find out what works best to complete your weight loss journey and maybe join me and use some of the .

I realize I could make it easy and stick to measuring out packaged items such as yogurt, peanut butter, etc, and I am not going to lie, I still do from time to time if I am tired or just do not have time.

Plus, once I am complete my diet, I still want to be able to go back and mix these recipes into my normal life in order to maintain my weight loss. I like to think of these choices as a lifestyle rather than a diet and that helps me reach my goals.
