What are healthy options that could almost pass as "junk" food because of how good they are?
Only thing that's kind of bad is the canned peach because they add a shit ton of sugar to that, replace that with a fresh peach and it would be perfect, maybe a bowl of musli with some milk too. It's still a hundred times better than most people eat for breakfast. I will never understand how some people can get up and eat meat, potatoes and other heavy foods for beakfast.
Before I was conscious of food and nutrition I probably thought refried beans were junk food.
Depends on how you cook it. Let's be real here, most health unconscious normies I know fry eggs with a ton of butter, oil, cheese, bacon, or bacon grease. A fresh peach or having just the apple with no sugar added greek yogurt (no opinion on nonfat vs 2% fat, depends on your goals) is miles better than most fried eggs, and what typically accompanies eggs.
There's no fries in OP, it's an apple, which is definitely a healthier breakfast choice than bread.
fur bread it depend on most health conchus for sugar or greek yogurt, (is miles for better than bacon or cheese grease bacon) than no sugar with fry egg normies.
for OP fries are actully apple, bread health choice defnitely not butter
Nuts in general, specifically almonds with a bit of coarse sea salt to dab your finger in as you eat 'em.
12-grain-bread with no-sugar-added peanut butter and a bit of strawberry or blackberry preserves.
Salad with spinach, chard, and kale. Feta cheese, and a bit of balsalmic.
Eggs cooked on a properly seasoned cast iron pan, so virtually no oil is required for cooking.
...or you could just eat whatever you want, as long as you exercise regularly and take supplements.
If you're an olympic athlete maybe. All the fat and cholesterol just makes you lazy and tired. If you're working in an office, going to school or whatever other job that isn't extremely physical, you have no reason to stuff your face with pancakes, sugar and meat or whatever other gluttonous breakfast combo.
it would have been healthier if it was an actual egg with sweet potato fries
ps. OP is a fag, you gotta eat big to get big. god dammit
sugar without satiety is bad. but sugar is necesarry for functioning. that's why empty calories are largely from processed sugar-filled foods... but all polysaccharides and carbohydrates break down into sugar for a reason
if you have sugar for breakfast and eat a protein filled lunch and dinner, which we often do, then that's not really MMUH SUGAR OVERLOAD as long as we avoid eating empty sugars, same with fats, loads of simple carbs, and etc
the attitude that any one meal full of any one thing is bad is silly, everything is good in moderation, particularily whole foods are hard to be bad even in large amounts. binging on apples will always be better and more filling than a soda and an egg for breakfast as the sugar is released slowly
I get some extremely dense, whole-grain bread filled with grains and nuts, one toasted with natural peanut butter (literally peanut with peanut oil) and the other toast with a bit of apricot jam and a slice of havarti cheese. It's a little bit fat for breakfast but damn it's delicious and filling.
>tfw thought mini-wheat was healthy when I was young because it was a shit-ton of fiber
>tfw now can eat 2-3 bowls and still be hungry an hour later.
>tfw it's a shit breakfast full of sugar
Are there any good breakfast cereals? They're all either really sugary or filled with sodium and trans fat (don't ask me how but these muesli are full of them)
1 part oats, 1 part water and 1 part coconut milk, and add a spoonful of peanut butter in there and some honey. You can also add various fruits, jams, even chocolate-hazelnut spread if you want to compromise health for taste. It's pretty delicious, filling and full of slow-release energy, plus the ingredients are dirt cheap with an immense shelf life. Perfect winter breakfast.
I have to add: Either use a non-stick pan or clean the pan as the porridge cools. If that shit gets dried onto a standard saucepan, it won't come off without some serious scrubbing.
I make them with ground chicken, egg, bread crumbs, yoghurt, salt, pepper and herbs, oven-baked. I wouldn't hesitate to make a burger steak from them, if it weren't for bread and condiments just making it less delicious and more unhealthy. It's just too good on its own. Heck, I could see them as street food, grilled on a skewer and sold with a sweet chili dip.
I used to cut a potato in thin slices and put them straight on aluminum paper with nothing but salt and they'd just dry up in there in about 15 minutes and you'd get chips that would taste pretty good with almost no fat. I did put mayonnaise but if you put ketchup or mustard then it's pretty healthy.
Fruit, nuts, and cheese.
>Fruits have too much sugar
>Nuts are bad for you
>So is dairy
Which made me turn away from nutritional diets that tell you to avoid something, and towards simply trying to get some of everything.
Mix oats, milk and sugar-free cocoa powder, microwave for ~2 minutes.
If you don't add too much milk, it will have the consistency and (kind of) taste of chocolate pudding. Have your choice of fruit with it.
Thats fine, but why peel it? The skin is rich in fiber and vitamins.
Ok, but from the looks of it it's not natural joghurt, but some kind of fruit or vanilla joghurt, probably sweetend. Replace with standard joghurt or drop it entirely.
One piece of fruit is enough, and a fresh apple is the better choice over a sugary canned peach. Drop it.
Pic related. Proper oatmeal with whole-wheat oats, sunflower seeds, almonds and dried apples and berries.
Fry two eggs in 5g butter. Take a slice of good bread (rye bread), add a slice of cooked ham, top of with the eggs. Salt and pepper. Optional: add salad or veggies, if you like.
(careful tho, some of the variations fry the bread in butter, add cheese, etc. That's when it crossed the junk food line).
I mix Alpen and Fibre 1 usually, for sort of a high fibre muesli thing. I alternate with shredded wheat (spoon sized). And oatmeal when I can be bothered to wash a pot on the weekend.
Same for sugar, it's just that everythign is poison in excessive amounts. Considering how much oil you need to deep fry, airfried alternatives are almost always better, not to mention that deepfrying in liquid oil usually means you end up with transfats. Get your fat from a better source.
get fucked. because of that annoying radio commercials i will never buy any of their products
>also, dried fruit of any kind
i can´t eat that stuff, makes my gag immediately
>mfw people do a fruit diet
>mfw they don't lose weight
>mfw they think they're eating healthy, but they're just eating natural sugars instead of added ones
I never understood, it's retarded. Yes, you have to change what you eat, but diet implies temporary. You'll just put it back on.
As someone who lost 50lbs, exercise is much bigger. I honestly lost the first 20 still eating like shit, but I switched from a sedentary to active lifestyle.
>but diet implies temporary. You'll just put it back on.
It's common knowledge that you have to alter your diet PERMANENTLY, otherwise you will indeed gain the weight back.
>>exercise is much bigger
Not really. Most exercise only burns a few hundred calories per hour. The same caloric deficit can be had by simply eating a little less. Mind you, exercise is a good thing for other reasons, but it's less efficient than reducing what you eat.
>back in highschool decided to stop drinking soda
>switched to 100% fruit juice
That is literally a 30's meme. When people woke up 5 am to go handle heavy machinery in car factories with a coffe break at 2pm, yes, you should eat as much as you can in the breakfast.
If you wake up at normal time and go to the office or school, 2 toasts with a little butter, or some turkey like >>7359129 said and a cup of coffee is enough.
God, this american breakfast habits pisses me off so much.
This, with Old Bay seasoning. Don't be a normie faggot and toss it with your weight in butter and salt.
Personally, my favorite is popcorn with sunflower oil and tossed in cayenne pepper and chili powder
sugar in the peach with syrup is probably worse. is it meme to think eggs are unhealthy now?
that's pretty clever though
Show me one person in the history of forever who got fat off eating whole fruit. Not canned fruit in syrup, not froot jews, not frozen sherbert, not fruit rollups. Actual pieces of whole fruit you buy at a grocer.
Fuck off with your retarded self.
>dessert last night was a mango and a blood orange
>eating a 'nana right now
>floating in a sea of vitamins and solid shits
The micronutrient content of animal products tends to be very high in relation to calories. This also holds true for ham.
Pic related shows the % of recommended daily intake for a 25 year old male, when consuming 1000 calories worth of the food item listed. As you can see, ham is much more nutritious than apples and rice (which are notoriously non-nutritious). Spinach, of course, is very nutritious per calorie, but it's not actually useful to think of vegetables in terms of nutrition per calorie. However, spinach is also very nutritious in relation to its weight and price.
Of course animal products contain no fiber but a lot of saturated fat, which are generally considered negatives, health-wise.
Are you fat? If yes, then you're eating more than enough
Are you a skellington? then no, you aren't eating enough.
Easy as that. Or you could just calculate what you use each day and then eat accordingly.
Came here to say the same thing.
Also, a peanut butter sandwich on good quality whole wheat bread.
Bacon isn't healthy if it's cured with nitrates/nitrites. Also browning food creates acrylamide and browning meat creates heterocyclic amines both of which are carcinogenic. Eggs are good tho
>Bacon isn't healthy if it's cured with nitrates/nitrites
this fucking meme needs to die already. "nitrate-free" bacon has more naturally occurring nitrates from celery juice than nitrated-added bacon
The little bit of flour added isn't as bad as greasy chicken wings. The texture is fantastic, almost like chewing orange chicken.
I made these last night, so amazing.
add your favourite sauce like:
1. Tapatio, BBQ and butter
2. Lime Juice, then after its cooked sprinkle on salt and black pepper with tiny bit of sugar.
3. Lemon, Parmesan, white pepper, and a bit of salt
4. Memesauce and lime juice
5. Mustard and honey with a bit of apple cider vinegar.
Buffalo Cauliflower Bites
Makes 4 servings (roughly 1 cup each)
1 medium cauliflower, cut into bite-sized pieces
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons butter, melted
2/3 cup Buffalo hot sauce
Preheat oven to 450 degrees, spray a large cookie sheet with cooking spray and set aside.
In a large bowl whisk together flour, water, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Add cauliflower florets and toss to coat. Spread evenly onto a cookie sheet and line with aluminum foil and place in the oven. Bake for 15 minutes, flipping once. Remove from the oven.
In a separate bowl stir together melted butter and buffalo sauce. Add baked cauliflower and toss to coat. Spread evenly onto a new piece of aluminum foil. Place back in the oven at 450 and bake for 25-30 minutes or until crispy, flipping once.
Remove from oven and let sit 10 minutes before serving.
I want /fit/ to leave /ck/.
my flavors > your autistic diet fads
Because it's the new /fit/ meme food. I miss when they were content with BIRD OF GAINS.
Oatmeal is almost as awful as grits and honestly I would only eat it for dieting and/or if I hate myself.
I'd imagine it's pretty nutritious. I was born a tiny baby, at risk of death actually, and formula didn't do jack shit to make me bigger. Then my mom started breastfeeding me and I sucked those titties dry err'day. I went from being dangerously small to a fucking blimp of a baby, even the docs were confused.
Yes. I want to learn to be an epic comedian, but I keep coming off as simply being retarded. How do I improve my sick jokings?
Good for you for trying to eat healthier. It's great when you start doing it because you'll feel great if you can keep it up for more than a week.
Here's what I do for breakfast each morning:
1 Bagel - Toasted
2 Eggs - Hard Boiled
2 Slices - Pillar's Breakfast Ham (Cooked on the stove)
1 Slice - Cheese (Not that processed garbage, search for 'real' cheese slices)
1 Glass - Bolt House Amazing Mango or Strawberry Banana.
1. Boil your eggs in bulk the night before (I do it for 2-3 days in advanced),
2. Cut the Bagel and Half and toast it,
3. Cook Ham. Then place ham and cheese on the bagle like you are making a sandwich
4. Get yourself a glass of Juice
Enjoy. Also this might help you out: http://www.fitnessfrog.com/calculators/tdee-calculator.html
Try to eat no more than you TDEE everyday if you do not want to gain weight/muscle, or loose weight. For losing, subtract 500, for gaining, add 500.
>my flavors > your autistic diet fads
>Implying every /fit/ diet is autistic.
Found the real autistic.
Yep, it is
You could've had 3 slices of toast, or a bowl of oats and a multivit for the same caloric equivalent and micro-nutrient benefits
One will fill you up for half an hour, the other for 3 hours
Fruit is literally a meme
People actually eat breakfast every day?
Mine is water when I wake up, a black coffee when I get to work, and a small bowl of instant oatmeal made with water and a little salt if I'm feeling peckish.
