It’s time to rise and shine! Sure, the cold weather outside has you feeling like you should stay in bed, but starting your day with a healthy breakfast helps you maintain energy levels, reduces those junk-food cravings, and can even boost your metabolism. Jump-start your winter morning on the right foot with a hot breakfast from Jenny Craig! Check out these 5 perfect hot breakfast ideas:
Light and sweet—the perfect morning treat! Our Classic Waffles are made with healthy whole wheat flour and wheat bran, and are delicious with 1 tablespoon of fat-free margarine (which counts as 1 limited free food) and our pre-portioned Lite Table Syrup. For a more filling meal, top with fresh sliced strawberries.
Garden Vegetable Frittata
Jumpstart your day with this EGGcelent frittata featuring garden veggies and cheeses, topped with garlic croutons and baked to perfection for the ultimate morning wake-up call!
Florentine Breakfast Pizzas
Forget the high-fat, high-sodium Eggs Benedict—this bistro-inspired breakfast is every bit as satisfying at just 210 calories! Two whole wheat crusts are topped with a savory blend of scrambled egg whites, spinach, cheese and bacon. Try topping with diced Roma tomato and just a pinch of sea salt.
Mediterranean Style Egg Sandwich
This deluxe breakfast sandwich features a savory scramble (egg whites, spinach and red bell peppers) topped with melted Monterey Jack cheese on artisan bread. Add sliced heirloom tomato and you’ll be satisfied and ready to face just about anything!
Cheddar Cheese Omelet
Fluffy scrambled eggs topped with melted cheddar cheese sauce and served with a side of savory roasted red potatoes? Yes, please! Low in fat and cholesterol, this delicious breakfast offers the perfect balance of protein and carbs to give you sustained energy throughout the day. If you’re the big-breakfast type, toss a half-cup of green peppers in a skillet with a spritz of fat-free cooking spray and sauté until the edges start to brown—then toss the potatoes in with them for a minute or two. Filling and full of flavor.
