Rate this post

These breakfast meals are ideal if you don’t like grain products or if you try to remove the gluten from your diet.
Grain products are usually very calorie-dense so if you include them in your diet you will quickly reach the daily calorie target, as an example just imagine that 1 oz of whole wheat cracker has more than 120 calories, 4 times more compared with 1 oz of chicken breast.
If you go for a meal plan with 3 meals and 2 snacks per day a 400-500 Calories breakfast will fit best in a meal plan with over 1600 Cal/day.
