You'll have a satisfying breakfast on the table in minutes flat with these slimming combinations of convenience products.

Weekday breakfasts present a major challenge: they're vital to keeping your healthy eating on track, but you have the least amount of time to prep than of all your meals of the day.

What's a crazy-busy healthy eater to do? With these slimming combinations of convenience products, you can have a satisfying breakfast on the table in minutes flat. Better yet: some of them require no cooking whatsoever. So resist the urge to hit the snooze button and power up with these nutrient-packed meals instead. Those extra five minutes weren't doing you any favors, anyway.


Weight-Loss Waffles

  • Van's 8 Whole Grain Waffles, multigrain (2)
  • Horizon Organic Finely Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • Al Fresco Country Style Chicken Sausage (2 links)
  • Milk (1%, 1 cup)

This quick-prep breakfast is made with whole wheat, barley, quinoa, oats, rye, and other grains you probably don't eat enough of. That's how each serving manages to top in 20 percent of your daily fiber needs.


Weight-Loss Parfait

  • Fage Total 2% Greek Yogurt, Plain (7 oz)
  • Sliced almonds (¼ cup)
  • Sliced fruit

Unlike American yogurt, Greek-style yogurt has had the liquids strained out, leaving it with fewer sugars and about three times as much protein. Use it to build a fruit parfait!


Weight-Loss Bagel Spread

  • Thomas' Hearty Grains 100% Whole Wheat Bagel (1)
  • Sabra Roasted Red Pepper Hummus (2 Tbsp)
  • Fried egg (large)
  • Hormel Natural Choice Smoked Deli Ham (4 slices)

Skip the cream cheese and create a seriously filling breakfast sandwich — in this case, with the help of a fried egg, slices of ham, and a swipe of creamy hummus on a whole grain bagel.


Weight Loss Cereal

  • Post Spoon-Size Original Shredded Wheat (1½ cups)
  • Blueberries (1/2  cup)
  • Milk (1%, 1 cup)
  • Protein powder (2 Tbsp)

Post Shredded Wheat is cereal at its gimmick-free best. With some additions, you can convert this age-old grain into a powerful weapon in your battle against belly fat.


Weight-Loss Organic Breakfast

  • Amy's Tofu Scramble
  • Milk (1%, 1 cup)
  • Pear

Tofu's soft, cheese-like curds are a perfect low-calorie stand-in for scrambled eggs. A glass of milk adds the extra protein you need to muscle through the morning without feeling hungry!
