We’ve all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and this couldn’t be more true. The food you put into your body in the morning sets the tone for the rest of the day and a good breakfast will keep you feeling full and satisfied for longer. The Mediterranean diet has long been associated with focusing on grains and produce, which makes it perfect for eating healthy breakfast foods. Here are five Mediterranean-inspired breakfasts.
Mediterranean Breakfast Oatmeal
Oatmeal has tons of fiber, which keep you feeling full longer. To make it savory, add tomatoes, yogurt, and fresh herbs. If you prefer sweet breakfasts, use fresh figs and tahini or peanut butter and bananas.
Mediterranean Breakfast Omelette
Eggs are packed with protein and omelettes can be customized with your favorite vegetables and cheeses. For a tangy take, add red wine vinegar, fresh vegetables, and avocado or you can make a vegan omelet with chickpeas instead of eggs and adding bell peppers and spinach.
Mediterranean Breakfast Parfait
Greek yogurt has twice the protein and half the carbs of regular yogurt, meaning you’ll be satisfied longer. It’s great with walnuts, fresh or dried fruits, and granola.
Mediterranean Breakfast Wraps
For a healthier take, opt for a whole grain wrap and fill it with hummus, avocado, egg, spinach, and black beans.
Mediterranean Breakfast Smoothies
On a hot summer day, nothing beats a smoothie and they will hydrate you while giving you your daily dose of fruits and vegetables. Add some Greek yogurt for an extra dose of protein.
