The Breakfast Flowchart

Healthy Breakfast Ideas

Reader Trisha recently posted on the Eating Rules Facebook Page that she was in some serious need of “weekday breakfast inspiration.” Since breakfast is easily my favorite meal of the day, I’m happy to help!  (Well, that’s not the only reason, but it certainly doesn’t hurt.)

There are already hundreds of “10 healthy breakfast ideas” posts out there (yawn), so I figured I’d work up something a little different for y’all — creating the second of an (indefinite) series of “healthy foodie flowcharts.” (What’s that? You missed my Smoothie Flowchart last year?)

All you need to do to get my breakfast flowchart is sign up for my email list.  Just enter your name & email address in the form below, confirm your subscription, and you’ll get the PDF. Thanks!

    Breakfast in my house is usually cereal or yogurt/granola for the kids and then my wife and I starring into the fridge whining, “I don’t know what to eat….”
    I am hoping that this chart will revolutionize our mornings. Thank you!

    Great job Andrew! It’s fun to read and I’m sure even better to cook off of 😉

    Lately I’ve needed to cut out the wheat and dairy, so I’ve started sauteing veggies for breakfast, with some black beans or tofu for protein. The precut onions at Whole Foods helps, then I either add shredded cabbage, or some leftover lightly steamed veggies from the night before, with some reheated brown rice and my favorite Annie’s Goddess dressing. Filling and definitely gets me through until lunch.

    This is great! One small edit: hazelnuts, not brazil nuts, are actually also known as filberts. :)

    Any way to get a bigger version of this? I can’t read the tiny writing and if I save it to my computer it’s completely pixelated.

      Did you download the PDF? (Or are you talking about the image at the top of the post?)
