What is a hearty, cholesterol-lowering breakfast that is easy to make ahead of time?

CarmenGiaExternal User
My habits have me eating out every morning on the way to work, picking up a biscuit and hash browns. :( Delicious, but bad for cholesterol)
I've tried oatmeal and toast, but without something more substantial, with protein, I don't make it to lunch without cravings.

First thing in the morn, oatmeal with berries, plus stir in some yogurt. Then mid-morn grab a banana or apple, that should help make it to lunch.

Try some egg beaters and turkey bacon with toast or English muffin with peanut butter. You can cook the bacon up ahead of time and warm it in the microwave or in the pan you cook your eggs in. You can either make a breakfast sandwich with it to eat on the road or take the time to eat at home and put some peanut butter or another type of nut butter for some extra protein to help you make it to lunch.

Try eggs- they are a pretty good option!

Hi CarmenGia, I think the best breakfast for  lowering cholesterol must be fibre rich like oatmeal, flax seeds, apple, soaked almonds etc. as advised by Dr. Janet Brill. She is  nutrition, health and fitness expert from USA. All the best.

Add nuts to your oatmeal. Try Greek yogurt with nuts, granola, fruit...

https://www.self.com/recipe/banana-nut-overnight-oats. The oats are good for cholesterol. Use almond milk and a few nuts to keep you full.  Chia seed and flax are also good for you and filling.

LaraBars are good.  I eat the blueberry muffin ones and there is no cholesterol in them.

I don't really know how to answer.  The biscuit might not be so bad but and it depends on how the has browns were cooked.  If they were fried, then it's not a good choice.

I drink a shake every morning made with Shakeology, almond milk, spinach, frozen banana & berries. Packed full of vitamins & nutrients, curbs my cravings, and keeps me full all morning.

I fix a smoothie with Greek yogurt and fresh fruit, mixed with fax seed meal and Greens 8000 powder. For a change I like steel cut oatmeal with raspberries.

I don't always eat breakfast bars on the way to work but I usually drink a nutritional drink and Joint Juice.  I sometimes eat trail mix with them.
