Notes from a Nutritionist

It’s very important that everything you eat to be of nutritional value and these  delicious breakfast ideas are no exception. I had these meals analyzed by a nutritionist and glad I have been making the right choices and hope I can inspire you as well.

Oatmeal:

  • High in soluble fibre which helps keep you feeling full longer and helps with weight control in the long run
  • Oats contain more protein and fat than other grains. They are also gluten-free.
  • Oats are also a good source of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants making them a very nutrient rich food.

Spinach:

  • high in calcium, which is necessary for bone health
  • iron, which is essential for preventing anaemia
  • magnesium, which supports proper muscle function
  • Vitamin A, which is necessary for healthy vision.

Eggs:

  • Source of high quality Protein,
  • Vitamin B-12, which is necessary for preventing nerve damage
  • Vitamin D, which helps your body absorb and use calcium.
  • Phosphorus, for nerve and kidney function, muscle contraction and keeping your heartbeat regular.
  • Iron, is necessary for forming red blood cells to transport oxygen around your body. Zinc helps heal wounds and form protein and DNA
  • Calcium, important for keeping your bones strong and for proper nerve and muscle function.

Strawberries

  • Vitamin C, antioxidant and boosts the immune system
  • Essentials nutrients folate, potassium
  • Source of fibre

  1. I am not a fan of breakfast in bed, crazy right? I am a fan of yummy breakfast foods, though, and I Love your ideas 🙂 NOMS.

  2. I never get breakfast in bed since the kids were little and now they are grown and gone. Hubby doesn’t like to eat as soon as he gets up. We are more brunch people on the weekend. Thinking all these dishes would still be great to make and enjoy we will just be sitting at our kitchen table.

  3. I might be sending then swing over to my husband as a clue as to what I would like when I’m spoiled LOL. With these kind of ideas he can’t go wrong LOL.

  4. All the three ideas look so appetizing and absolutely YUM! All of them have ingredients that are both healthy and tasty. Breakfast being the most important meal of the day has to be this delicious and as healthy as these three. Loved the recipe!

  5. If only my husband would make all of this for me and I could be pampered in bed! HA!
    One day maybe…I do let him sleep in because I’m one of those pesky morning people. So maybe I’ll be the one to make all these yummy recipes. They do look fabulously tasty and healthy too. Simple to make! Thank you for sharing them!

  6. These are really yummy breakfast in bed ideas. So different than my usual breakfast, which is cold cereal and milk or a smoothie!

  7. I don’t think I have ever had breakfast i bed! Although, my husband would love if I would surprise him with meal # 3 on your menu!!

    • I really prefer savory too. I like sweet breakfast foods, but I can’t stomach them during usual breakfast hours.

  8. The breakfast items look really good, and the tuna lettuce wraps are my favorite. I don’t have breakfast in bed because I’m a klutz. haha. Seriously though, I’d enjoy all of these sitting anywhere, just not on the bed. 🙂

  9. There is absolutely NOTHING I love more than breakfast in bed. I can’t decide which spread is my favorite…probably the eggs and spinach because I just love that flavor combo.

  10. YES please! I love having an amazing breakfast in bed. I usually only get spoiled with them on Mother’s Day and my Birthday but theres no reason to have to wait for special day. I need to share this with my hubs!

  11. Who wouldn’t love to have breakfast in bed especially one that’s really beneficial and healthy! I think these are all lovely ideas! Made me crave for some breakfast food!

  12. Isn’t breakfast in the best the BEST? I’m one of those people who LOVES breakfast food and would literally eat it for breakfast, lunch or dinner! That tuna lettuce wrap looks super yummy.

  13. I have commented on this before but using fresh fruits, freshly ground grains, beans, eggs for protein can put you on the correct path of good eating. Start kids off right and yourself with a good breakfast.

  14. I love that you had a nutritionist look over these ideas. Breakfast seems to be one of the hardest for me. I am used to just grabbing a shake and going out the door. However, sometimes I want something a little more but the typical breakfast foods are so unhealthy for you!

  15. These all look so delicious! There’s nothing like a delicious breakfast/brunch in bed on a Sunday morning! LOVE it!

  16. These are great breakfast in bed ideas. Oatmeal and fresh fruits make for a great breakfast. The tuna wrap is something I am going to have to make for my mom. Thanks for sharing the ideas and recipe.

  17. I absolutely LOVE breakfast and not only that, but I also LOVE bed… so having breakfast in bed with one of those yummy plates would be perfect : ) all that food looked very good!

  18. My sweet kids keep bringing me breakfast in bed, which is so thoughtful. However, at 5 and 7, they aren’t able to make much of a breakfast (pretty much just my homemade granola with some milk or yogurt), so I’m looking forward to when they can make me some breakfasts like this!

  19. Sign me up, I will take breakfast in bed! I like to mix a bunch of veggies and sepicially spinach into my eggs. They taste good and it is healthy.

  20. These are all great breakfast suggestions. I love how you’ve pointed out the health benefits and all the different kinds of nutrients we can get from them. However, I would opt out of breakfast in bed because I can be clumsy at times and I might knock them over and make a big mess.
