Healthy Breakfast Recipes

recipe running a bed and breakfast Jan 11, 2024

It's that time of year, when many of us have set new intentions for a healthier diet in 2024.

I was actually quite pleased with myself over Christmas as I managed to keep up with my kefir, kombucha, kimchi and high fibre diet over the holiday period, albeit healthily supplemented with mincemeat shortbread and chocolates!

If you or your B&B guests are yearning something for breakfast that leaves you feeling a bit more virtuous, without feeling deprived in taste, here's a round up of some of my healthier breakfast recipes.

If guests are doing Veganuary then consider offering replacing cheese and eggs with chickpea mash, tofu scramble, hummus and nut butters for added protein.

When I had vegan guests staying ( or in fact any guests with specific dietary requirements ) I would always ask if there were specific foods they wanted me to get in and serve up for breakfast. It takes out a lot of the guesswork!

High Protein Breakfast Recipes 

Especially as we age, protein is crucial for maintaining muscle mass, bone strength and helping us stay full.

Here are my favourite high protein recipes

Gluten Free Protein Cottage Cheese Waffles

High Protein Gluten Free Apple Cinnamon Pancakes

High Protein Breakfast Shake

The Perfect 3 Eggs Omelette Recipe ( serve with the high fibre homemade baked beans below to give you both protein and fibre )

High Fibre Breakfast Recipes

The British Heart Foundation recommendation is that adults should eat 30g of fibre a day, but they say average intake is currently 20g, so most of us have a long way to go. 

Here are some of my high fibre recipes:

High Protein Breakfast Shake - a 2nd mention for this recipe as it has the advantage of being very high in both protein and fibre, as well as containing fermented kefir. It's my go to daily breakfast

Homemade Granola

Overnight Oats with Chia Seeds and Kefir

Homemade Baked Beans - Note that the beans aren't vegetarian as they contain worcestershire sauce

Lighter Vegetarian Breakfast Recipes

If your guests have given up meat for January, then these breakfasts always proved very popular at my B&B! The herby mushrooms with poached eggs was most popular vegetarian breakfast!

AGA Roast Tomatoes with Halloumi on Brioche

Herby Mushrooms with a Poached Egg on Toast 

Cheese and Herb Vegetarian Sausages

Avocado Toast

Gluten Free Banana Oat Pancakes
