We all know that breakfast cereals are loaded with trans fats, sugar and a whole host of preservatives. Swapping your regular breakfast cereal for plain oatmeal or other cooked grains, plain Greek yogurt, or a chia seed pudding is a much healthier breakfast option.
However, there is not a great chance that this change will stick if your new breakfast option lacks flavor. Choosing the right breakfast topping is key to both keeping your food interesting and tasty — but still healthy — and gives you a chance to boost the nutrition profile of the dish!
Try any of these delicious flavors:
A low calorie, high antioxidant option! Be careful if you have poor digestion, as a fruit/protein or fruit/starch mix may be hard for some to digest.
Try blueberries, strawberries, mango, banana, grated apple and peaches.
2. Nuts and seeds
Rich in good fats and protein, nuts and seeds will keep you feeling fuller for longer. Opt for raw for maximum benefit.
Try almonds, buckwheat groats, walnuts, cashews, sunflower seeds, pepitas and Brazil nuts.
These highly nutritious foods and powders are loaded with antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals and will help you glow from the inside out!
Try maca powder, cacao powder and, hemp seeds, goji berries, Inca berries, chia seeds, and coconut shreds.

Berry Nice: raspberries, blueberries, flaked almonds, goji berries, Inca berries.
Tropical Delight: mango, Brazil nuts, hemp seeds, coconut shreds.
