Healthy Quick Breakfast

Everyone knows that eating breakfast is very important.  But what we eat is something many are misinformed about.  A breakfast should include a pretty good balance of fat, carbs, and protein.  You want it balanced so that your blood sugars don’t shoot up too high, and you want enough fat and protein in it to keep you full for awhile.

This breakfast I am going to show you today, doesn’t have many carbs in it.  I am trying to get extra lean right now, so I am focusing more on high protein and moderate amounts of fat.

Normally adding some greek yogurt, or oatmeal would make this more balanced.

It is important to cook with coconut oil since it won’t burn and turn into trans fats like vegetable oils can do. Whole eggs are better then egg whites because of the healthy fat (screw cholesterol), and all the nutrients. At least eat 2 whole eggs, and if you want to throw in more egg whites that is fine. Getting in tons of veggies will of course give you nutrients as well as fiber and bulk to the meal.

What is your favorite healthy breakfast?


  1. This is my current favorite breakfast: take some leftover cooked quinoa (high-protein grain from South America), heat in microwave, add a hard-boiled egg, uncooked baby spinach, butter, herbamare season salt, and home-made fermented sauerkraut. YUM!!!! Making your own sauerkraut is easy: just take a quart-size mason jar, pack tightly with shredded cabbage and sea salt, which releases water from the cabbage to cover it, and cover with a clean cloth. Let sit in a quiet corner of the countertop (not too hot, not too cold or fermentation takes longer) for a week to 10 days. Then, refrigerate and eat! Filled with probiotics.

  2. My first breakfast is usually 1/2 a scoop of vanilla protein powder in a cup of water before bootcamp. My 2nd is oatmeal with blueberries topped with 1/2 a scoop of protein powder mixed with 1/8 cup of water. The pp is kind of like cream and it cools off the oatmeal so I can get out the door quickly.

  3. Dustin,
    Your bedhead and your breakfast both look great 🙂 Thanks for the idea.
    Enjoy your time in San Diego.

  4. Eggs are my favorite breakfast as well. Just ran out of coconut oil so I need to get some more, but I love cooking with it. I love throwing in mushrooms, spinach, peppers, onions, etc. Thanks for the video and have a blast in San Diego! PS-My hair is way worse when I wake up 😉

  5. I usually make scrambled eggs and I keep frozen veggies on hand so I always have something to throw in along with a little cheese. I also make scrambled eggs in the microwave on busy days. Stovetop eggs don’t take that long, I know, but you have to keep an eye on it. I can put eggs in the microwave and walk away to get my daughter dressed or finish my hair. And we all love homemade oatmeal.

  6. The days I do your Bun, Guns, Back and Shoulders DVDs I have a whey protein shake mixed with fruit right afterwards. Almost everyday I hard boil a farm fresh egg or 2 to eat at work around 8:00 am as I’m not usually hungry first thing in the morning and busy getting boys ready for school. I have managed to lose 20 pounds by watching my bad carb intake (bread, pasta, sugar) and by exercising; zumba, walking, elliptical and weight training. I also do the Buddy Bootcamp DVD.

  7. My favorite breakfast right now is Banana Pancakes.
    1/4 of a banana, mashed
    1/2 cup of oats, pour over banana
    cinnamon to taste, I like lots
    1/4 cup of hot water, pour over oats and mix well
    Let sit for 10 minutes while heating non stick pan
    Add 3 eggs to oatmeal mixture, mix well
    Pour 1/2 of mixture in to pan, cook till golden on both sides.

    You can substitute Pumpkin for the Banana and add clove and nutmeg as well as decrease egg yolks and increase egg whites.
    I eat mine with about 1 tsp of butter on top.

  8. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. Dustin’s breakfast idea is one I have quite often on the weekends. Yummy!

    Tracy – I tried your banana pancakes and love them. I have tried it with pumkin too. I really like both ways. They have become a favorite.

    Tiffany – Your breakfast idea sounds good too. I am going to try it next time I have left over quiona. Thanks for the info on how to make your own sauerkraut. I am going to try that soon too. I love sauerkraut!

  9. Dustin, you could always add steamed cabbage to the recipe instead. No acquiring the taste of sauerkraut necessary!! 🙂
