21 Healthy Vegetarian Breakfasts For Weight Loss - Title Image | Hurry The Food Up

Get ready to seriously up your breakfast game with these healthy vegetarian breakfasts for weight loss!

We know very well that it can be hard to know what to eat for breakfast when trying to lose weight – which we’re guessing, as you are here, is what you’re trying to do!

Standard supermarket cereal is loaded with sugar and is not filling at all, and toast and bagels gets a bit boring, besides not offering much nutritional value outside of carbs.

But never fear! HurryTheFoodUp is here to save the day!

We’ve got a whole range of delicious healthy breakfasts for weight loss to add to your morning routine. No compromises on flavour either!

Vegetarian breakfasts for weight loss – What fits the bill?

These recipes are all low fat low calorie breakfasts for weight loss. To be more specific, we have only included recipes that meet these requirements:

  • 400 calories or less
  • Max 12.5g overall fat per serving
  • Less than 4g saturated fats
  • Focus on whole grain carbs

We think that 400 calories (or thereabouts) is enough to fill you up until lunchtime, while maintaining a slim calorie deficit. Obviously, you need to take care of the rest of your meals – but an easy healthy breakfast for weight loss is a step in the right direction!

And not to wish to blow our own trumpet or anything…but we’ve got you covered for the rest of the day, with 40 Low Calorie Vegetarian Meals, 50 Low Calorie Snacks and even 15 Low Calorie Desserts!

An ode to oats!

You’re going to see a lot of oatmeal recipes among these vegetarian breakfasts for weight loss – and for a good reason!

Oats are a pretty incredible food all round. Especially if you’re looking for breakfast recipes to lose belly fat.

That’s because they are absolutely chockablock with fibre, which means they will make you feel super full, but also relatively low in calories! They even contain a surprising amount of protein.

One ½ cup serving of oats contains 140 calories, 4g fibre, 5g protein, and very little fat at only 2.5g!

What’s more, they’re extremely versatile. A bowl of oats is basically a blank canvas for you to experiment with.

For example, among these healthy vegetarian breakfast recipes, we have oat recipes as diverse as this strawberry oatmeal (which contains egg whites for an extra protein boost!), and these delicious banana and nut-butter oats.

Pile on the pancakes..but not the pounds!

You might also be surprised to see a few pancake recipes scattered among these healthy vegetarian breakfasts for weight loss.

But aren’t pancakes super unhealthy, you cry!?

Sure, classic pancakes contain a whole lot of butter and sugar, but it is very easy to whip up healthy pancakes that are just as tasty.

For example, we’ve put together an amazing recipe for lentil pancakes. Don’t worry – you can’t taste the lentils, they are just part of the batter.

The overriding flavours are the banana, strawberries and a little maple syrup, the lentils just add a punch of protein, making this the perfect high protein low calorie breakfast.

Other ways to make pancakes healthier, include substituting some of the flour for oats, using natural sweeteners such as banana, or even whizzing some spinach into the batter for extra iron and general spinachy goodness!

But we don’t need to tell you that now – you’ll learn all that and more as you work your way through these 21 Healthy Vegetarian Breakfasts for Weight Loss! Enjoy!
