[et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_text admin_label=”Text”]
Breakfast under 200 calories is a round up post for many recipes that I have found and tried.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and most of us falter at breakfast, consuming more calories. Consuming more calories during breakfast is a result of stressed mornings and not planning breakfast a day before.
Why would you need only a 200 calorie breakfast?
If you are planning to have 6 meals for the day, it is important to have a minimum of 200/250 calories per meal. How would you know which food has how many calories? Well, it is simple, once you count it you can easily keep it in mind.
Remember for weight loss the equation is Calories in minus the calories out. So we need to be specific about what we are consuming.
What should you have for breakfast?
Breakfast should be plated as all other meals in case you are not following intermittent fasting. It should have enough proteins, carbohydrates, fats, and adequate fiber.
It is said that you should break your fast with fruit but instead of just having a fruit make sure you add some protein to it.
Peanut butter or any nut butter is a good source of protein.
Greek Yogurt or Hung curd or even normal yogurt is a good source of protein
Nut milk or Dairy Milk ( In case you are not vegan) should be added to your breakfast
In case you are a fan of Indian Breakfast, you can opt for Millet Idli, Millet Dosa, Poha, Upma, and the likes.
Here are 30 options for breakfast which you can try, remember all these breakfast options are under 200 calories each.
One handful of oats, with nut milk or dairy milk, topped with fruits and nuts. I find these recipes quite helpful.

Dosa and chutney ( Rice pancakes with a dip) – A non-oily simple dosa accounts to 100 calories. You can have 2 dosas with a dip. Both idli and dosas are an amazing source of protein. These two delicacies are the go-to breakfast items in most of India.
Poha – Rice flakes that are seasoned with oil, mustard seeds, curry leaves, and green chilies with onion. One of the famous breakfasts in India. 100 gms of Poha has 40 calories, better than any other breakfast you see. You can add peanuts, onions, tomato toppings to make it more delicious. If you want to fill yourself for 2-3 hours post breakfast Poha is the best option.
Broken wheat porridge: 100 gms of broken wheat porridge has approximately 100 calories. You can have two servings of it for making it a 200 calorie breakfast or accompany it with yogurt.
Though I am not a big fan of cold breakfasts, the smoothie bowl serves the best option for breakfast. You can toss all that you want to add in a ziplock bag in your refrigerator and blend it the next day. Top it with some berries and nuts to get a very nutrition-dense breakfast.
Here are some smoothie recipes you can try as breakfast options.
Never miss breakfast. Plan diligently for your breakfast to not to exceed your calorie intake. It is always better to have some warm breakfast to start the day. I have given some warm and cold options, choose what you like, and be on the way to weight loss.
