Oatmeal and eggs for breakfast are a staples in my breakfast plan. I’m sharing how to combine these two key ingredients for a nutritious and satisfying breakfast.
Every morning I wake up excited for breakfast (and coffee!). Let’s be honest, I love to eat!
I’ve never been one to skip breakfast or get by with a 150 calorie breakfast or buttered piece of toast. I want something that sticks to my ribs and fuels me for all of the activities ahead.
Both oatmeal and eggs are two very common ingredients used in breakfast meals, in the United States that is, but they are often thought of as separate dishes: savory scrambled eggs and omelets vs creamy bowls of oatmeal topped with brown sugar. While I enjoy both own their own, I’m not usually in the mood to prepare multiple dishes early in the morning.
In this post, I’m sharing how you can combine these two key ingredients for a satisfying and healthy breakfast.
Oatmeal and Eggs For Breakfast
Sure, both oatmeal and eggs are wonderful on their own… but together, they make an even better breakfast.
Is Oatmeal And Eggs Good For Breakfast?
You all know, oatmeal for breakfast is a KERF classic. There was a long time, when I was eating oatmeal on a daily basis. But, oatmeal and eggs are breakfast perfection!
Is it ok to eat oatmeal and eggs together?
Totally!!! You’re getting a balance of macronutrients from the two big players: carbohydrates and fiber from the oats and protein and fat from the eggs.
- Benefits of Oats: high in fiber and complex carbohydrates
- Benefits of Eggs: great source of protein (7g per egg) and dietary cholesterol (cholesterol isn’t all bad!)
Other ways to get satisfying protein in your oatmeal: stir in cottage cheese, Greek yogurt, or use whole milk.
