Opt for healthier options with these 5 Breakfasts!
You’re watching your weight. You’re also a busy woman. And you’re up against a challenge! It can be very difficult to find recipes that are low in Weight Watchers Points, high in nutrition, and no-hassle. That’s why we’re sharing these no-fuss Weight Watchers breakfasts under 5 points.
Most of us don’t have time to fuss with food prep in the morning; there may be dogs to be walked, hungry kids to be fed, or early meetings on the schedule. Our hectic mornings can make it tempting to grab breakfast dishes that derail our healthy eating plans. Instead of eating foods that nourish us, we sometimes reach for store-bought cereals, oatmeal, or waffles, which are often packed with excess calories, sugar, and chemical additives. These products don’t offer much in the way of nutrition either, so they’re unlikely to provide the energy needed to tackle the rest of the day!
These Weight Watchers breakfast recipes are a refreshing alternative to store-bought breakfasts. First, they’re good for the body. Each recipe offers 5 Points or less, so you can be sure that, with proper portion control, you’re staying on track with your diet plan. These dishes are also free from what your body doesn’t need, including too much sugar, excess salt, and too many calories.
As a bonus, these recipes taste great, which means that you can serve them to everyone in the family. In fact, loved ones may not even realize that they’re eating healthy food. So instead of feeding yourself and family members processed foods that deliver too many calories and not enough nutrition and energy, make these dishes a regular part of your menu planning.
