Top 10 Breakfasts for Weight Loss to Start Eating

Is breakfast really the most important meal of the day? If you are looking to lose weight, this age-old adage may hold true. Research shows that skipping breakfast may lead to weight gain.

But you need to focus on healthy breakfasts for maximum weight loss. That means choosing low-sugar, anti-inflammatory foods that are rich in macronutrients (protein, carbs, and fats) and micronutrients (vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants).

Are you searching for breakfasts for weight loss that are also ChiroThin-approved? Check out this guide for our top 10 ideas for breakfast to help you hit your weight loss goals.

1. Bagel Breakfast Sandwich

A bagel breakfast sandwich is a filling, nutrient-rich meal that is just as good for lunch as it is for breakfast. Learn how to make our healthy take on the bagel sandwich below.


  • 1 whole grain bagel, split

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 tomato, diced

  • 1 tbsp red onion, diced

  • 1 tbsp cream cheese

The first step to this recipe is to make sheet pan eggs. Whisk the eggs and then stir in the diced tomatoes and onions. Bake the eggs on a lined sheet pan for around 10 minutes at 350°F.

Toast the bagel and smear it with cream cheese. Cut the eggs to the size of the bagel. Sandwich the eggs between the bagel and enjoy!

2. Granola With Yogurt and Fruit

Yogurt breakfasts are perfect for days when you are in a rush. And eating fiber-filled fruits for breakfast is always a no-brainer. Plus, this recipe requires no cooking or chilling.


  • 1 cup Greek yogurt

  • 1/4 cup high-protein granola

  • 1 cup berries

Add the Greek yogurt to a bowl and top with granola and berries. Choose anti-inflammatory berries like blueberries, strawberries, or cherries for maximum benefits.

3. Lox Bagels

Lox-and-bagels is a classic breakfast in New York. It’s also a super-healthy option that is packed full of nutrients and anti-inflammatory compounds from the salmon.


  • 1 whole grain bagel, split

  • 1 ounce of lox (smoked salmon)

  • 1 tbsp cream cheese

  • 1 cucumber, sliced

  • 1 tomato, sliced

  • 1 tbsp red onion

  • 1 tbsp capers

Toast the bagel and then smear cream cheese on both sides. Add the lox, a few slices of cucumber and tomato, and sprinkle on the red onions and capers. Serve this dish open-faced.

4. Breakfast Burritos

Breakfast burritos are a big feature on the frozen breakfast foods aisle for a reason. They are easy to make, quick to reheat, and full of fiber, healthy fat, and plant-based protein.


  • 1 whole wheat tortilla

  • 1/2 cup black beans

  • 1 avocado, sliced

  • 1 leaf of kale, chopped

  • 1 tomato, diced

You can prep the ingredients for your breakfast burrito the night before. In the morning, all you have to do is warm up your tortilla and pile on the beans, kale, tomatoes, and avocado.

Make sure to wrap your tortilla tight to keep the ingredients from falling out! Oh, and Salsa is an optional but highly recommended dip for this delicious breakfast wrap.

5. Skillet Hash

Legend has it that cowboys came up with this hearty and rustic breakfast dish. Wherever it came from, one thing is for sure: this dish is one of the most delicious and nutritious meals you can make.


  • 2 eggs

  • 1/2 sweet potato, cubed

  • 1/2 red pepper, chopped

  • 1/2 onion, diced

  • 1 jalapeno, sliced

Sautee the onions and sweet potatoes until the potatoes are soft. Add in the onions and jalapenos before creating two holes in the hash. Crack the eggs into the holes and cook until the yolks are firm.

If you are a meat eater, you could skip the eggs and add in lean breakfast sausage. Serve up your hash in a bowl with your favorite hot sauce.

6. Savory Oatmeal

Love Italian food and wish you could have it for every meal? With this Italian flavor-inspired savory oatmeal, you finally can!

Add the parmesan to your oats before sauteeing your tomatoes and spinach. Serve the cheesy oats in a bowl and top with the poached eggs and veggies. Drizzle olive oil on top for an extra boost of inflammation-fighting nutrients.

7. Orange Vanilla Breakfast Shake

8. Avocado Tuna Toast

Tuna gets a bad wrap, but it’s actually one of the healthiest sources of protein. It also contains anti-inflammatory compounds that will help you conquer your health and weight loss goals.


  • 1 slice of whole wheat toast

  • 1/2 avocado, mashed

  • 1 sunny-side-up egg

  • 1/2 can of tuna

Smear your toast with avocado and top with tuna. Add the egg as the finishing touch for this millennial-inspired morning meal.

9. Orange Apple Chia Seed Pudding
