Greek yogurt is a 50/50 food. Whether or not someone is going to like it is always hit or miss. Greek yogurt can be tart, funky, and have a not-so-desirable consistency for some, but good news! There are other options out there!  Here are 5 healthy breakfasts that don’t include Greek Yogurt but are still quick, low calorie, high protein breakfast options.

Meal-prepping is an important habit to get into to help stay on track with your diet. With overnight oats, you can make a week’s worth of breakfast and they can be eating either hot or cold! (And really, anything out of a mason jar tastes better!) See overnight oats recipes here.

Egg Muffins

According to the new 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines, eggs are no longer the bad guys! Making these egg muffins in the beginning of the week is an easy way to have breakfast ready to go. Tip: don’t use cupcake liners. I tried that and spent most of the morning scraping the egg out of the liner! Oops!
