Well I am facing some problems while choosing what to eat especially at work, because there isn't much protein in the cafeteria, so I am trying to get as much as possible the similar foods that it may contain protein.
For example eggs bread milk one day, Oats with honey day two, stuffed bread(parathas) with curd day 3 and so on.
The idea is to have different tasting foods one day after another so the breakfast does not get monotonous.
Proteins include eggs and meat, cheese, fish, and vegan options such as soy or pea protein. Please note that seitan and quinoa have significant starches. Fats are readily available, but we really don't need much fat, compared to other nutrients. Carbohydrates are the most common macronutrient.
For example: I have in my kitchen some cereals (one day) and yogurt, whole bread and light cheese, one type of juice, at least 3 fruits like bananas, apples, avocados. You don’t need to have everything in one meal. You can have several different combinations among these.
Once the good habit is taken the choice of ingrédients is easy.
Making, finding on internet a list of what is best for breakfast ( protein) then I make my own list for the supermarket and my menus.
Adding herbs, species, replacing dey fruit by an other one, there is so many ideas and variety in the nature that it is so inspiring!!
Look for healthy recipe with above options. I am sure you will find plenty and easy to make recipes that suits your taste buds.
If you find a breakfast which is healthy and you love it, maybe there's not even a need to vary it too much.
On that day, I look at my agenda for the next week and fit suitable breakfasts for the days to come. For example: Monday oath, Tuesday a couple of slices of bread, Wednesday eggs, tomatoes, beans, etc.
I plan it on Friday, so I can do the shoppings for the breakfast in the weekend. On the week to come, I just look at my schedule and ‘execute’.
Omelettes, or oatmeal is healthy
Starting with a protein is the hardest to be creative with but once I pick a protein I think of what to put it in or what to add as a side or what I can add into it.
Whether this means you cook every meal in advance, freeze most of it, and reheat it whenever you like, or simply ensure that you've got the necessary supplies to make what you want is up to you, but if the work is done ahead of time, I find it's a relief to have already made the choice.
How about meat and veggies, Nuts, fruit. Just because it’s morning doesn’t mean you can’t have your lunch.
If you really want cereal have them for lunchtime.
