Hungry for an ooey, gooey cinnamon roll for breakfast? No problem! Craving something sweet with your cup of coffee? Go for it. You can even start your day with a sausage and egg sandwich or a stack of pancakes. Nutrisystem offers a breakfast menu of morning comfort foods that fit into your weight loss diet. Cozy up to your favorite comfort foods without a gram of guilt.
Here are six of our customer’s favorite guilt-free comfort foods:
1. Cinnamon Roll
To lead our list of comfort foods, we have a breakfast classic. True to its name, this piping hot pastry is swirled with cinnamon and topped with a thick cream cheese frosting. All you have to do is heat and eat it. Each soft-baked Cinnamon Roll is rich in protein and fiber for a very filling morning meal. Pair it with fresh fruit and a hot cup of coffee for a sweet and satisfying breakfast.
2. Double Chocolate Muffin
Yup, you can have a chocolate muffin for breakfast; double chocolate in fact. This sweet treat is also loaded with seven grams of protein and 10 grams of fiber to help keep your belly full way past morning. It’s made with whole wheat flour and has real chips baked in for an extra burst of chocolate in every bite. For Nutrisystem customer Bruce, this rich, ready-to-eat muffin “makes getting out of bed that much better.”
3. Turkey Sausage and Egg Muffin
The consensus among Nutrisystem customers: This warm and yummy sandwich tastes just like the fast food version and is one of the top-choice comfort foods on our menu! But at only 210 calories, it’s totally guilt-free. Fluffy eggs and savory turkey sausage together provide a whopping 14 grams of protein, plus the fiber in the whole grain muffin creates a well-balanced and hearty breakfast.
4. Maple Brown Sugar Oatmeal
Nothing says morning comfort food more than a piping hot bowl of oatmeal. And this version—made delicious with pure maple and sweet brown sugar—contains only 150 calories, has lots of vitamins and minerals, and delivers that slow-cooked flavor in only a few microwave minutes. How one customer, Jenn, gets hers super creamy: “Make it with less milk than it calls for so it comes out thick. Then add the rest of the milk at the end to get it nice and creamy.”
5. Buttermilk Waffles
Crispy, golden and sweet. Low-cal, high fiber and lots of protein. How could this beautiful waffle get any better? Try topping it with bananas or berries, warm sautéed apples and cinnamon, a little honey or a quick pour of sugar-free maple syrup for a boost of sweet flavor. Our customers love that these waffles are light, crunchy and super-fast to make.
6. Homestyle Pancakes
Pancakes hit the spot when you wake up craving carbs. However, most of the time this breakfast favorite is far from waist-friendly. Enter the Nutrisystem Homestyle Pancakes! At just 150 calories, you can sink your teeth into these flapjacks without derailing your diet. They have three grams of fiber, six grams of muscle-building protein and a slightly-sweet flavor that makes them so, so good. Drizzle on some sugar-free syrup, peanut butter or even pair them with your favorite fruit.
