Welcome to day 14 of the Bikini Bootcamp Challenge!

As we discussed on day 9, breakfast is the most important meal of the day.


Below are 8 low cal, low fat breakfasts that will keep you fueled and energized throughout the morning.


Spinach and Parmesan Omelet:
In a skillet coated with cooking spray, saute 1 cup chopped spinach and 1 tablespoon chopped scallion for 1 minute. Beat 2 eggs (or egg substitue) with a dash Tabasco; add to skillet. Cook until egg is cooked through, about 2
minutes. Flip and add 2 teaspoons grated Parmesan; cook 15 to 30 seconds. Serve with 1 slice toasted oat bread and 1/2 cup grapes.

Huevos Rancheros:
In a medium skillet coated with nonstick cooking spray, cook 2 eggs sunny -side up. Mix 1/2 cup black beans and 1/4 cup salsa. Top bean-and-salsa mixture and eggs with 2 tablespoons shredded reduced fat-cheddar.


Raspberry-Banana Smoothie:
Combine 1/2 banana, 1/2 cup frozen rapsberries, 1/2 cup fat-free Greek yogurt, and 8 ounces skim milk in a blender. Pulse until smooth. Eat with one slice whole wheat toast and 2 teaspoons of peanut butter.

Tropical Fruit Parfait:
Peel and cut 1/2 pink grapefruit and 1/2 navel orange into segments. Combine with 1/2 kiwi, peeled and chopped, and 1/4 cup pineapple chunks. Place 1/2 cup nonfat Greek yogurt in a bowl. Spoon half the fruit mixture over yogurt, add 2 tablespoons high-fiber cereal. Add another 1/2 cup nonfat Greek yogurt, remaining fruit, and another 2 tablespoons high-fiber cereal. Top with 2 table­spoons shredded coconut.

Whole Grain Cereal Crunch:

In a medium bowl add, 1 cup of bran flakes, 1 tablespoon pecans, 2 tablespoons dried cranberries and 1 cup of nonfat or soy milk.

Strawberry Ricotta Waffles:
Top once toasted whole grain frozen or fresh waffle with 1/2 cup nonfat ricotta cheese and 1 cup of sliced strawberries. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of maple syrup or honey over the top.

Honey and Pear Oatmel:
Prepare one packet of plain instant oatmeal with hot water. Dice one medium pear and drizzle with 2 tablespoons of honey. Microwave pear and honey mixture until warm. Top oatmeal with pear and honey mixture and sprinkle with a tablespoon of chopped almonds.

French Vanilla Toast with Berries:
Whisk 1 egg, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, a dash of cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg together. Dip two slices of whole grain bread into egg mixture. In a medium skillet, using cooking spray, saute bread on each side until brown. Top with half a cup of strawberries or raspberries.

I'm still having a hard time with breakfast, but I'm at about 3 out of the last 5 days, which is really good for me.My breakfast is usually oatmeal (I'm breastfeeding), fruit and yogurt.

 Usually my breakfast is a cup of Nuvia Trim Coffee (which contains raspberry ketones, green coffee bean extract & ganoderma) made with truvia packets and 2 tbsps half and half.

If I have any appetite at all and feel like I am even ABLE to eat anything I eat 4 eggwhites, w/ few tbsps of sugar free torani caramel flavored syrup in them and sprinkle packet of truvia and cinnamon on top.

All of which is far less than 300 calories. FAR less. Also very low carb and high protein and low fat.

I have always struggled with eating breakfast daily.  Unfortunately I don't have ingredients for any of these meals.  Usually I'll have a bowl of apple oatmeal or something heavier potatoes, eggs, bacon, and cheese bowl  (both always with coffee)

yesterday was a homemade peach vanilla smoothie. 185 calories

food for me to hold down in the morning, so I tend to liquefy it.
