31 No-Cereal Breakfast Ideas - gluten-free, sugar-free, perfect for Trim Healthy Mama! Great list!

My kids get sick of cereal, and I get sick of giving it to them. Even though I usually make a one-week breakfast menu and repeat it, sometimes I need new ideas. (I also have some full menus listed in my Menus and Meal Plans section, if you're interested.)

I previously posted 31 Trim Healthy Lunch Ideas, and 31 Trim Healthy Snack Ideas, and even 31 Trim Healthy Dessert Ideas.  Those lists have been very useful to me lately. But this week I was floundering at breakfast time, and it occurred to me…I never made a post of 31 Trim Healthy Breakfast Ideas! So here it is – I hope you find it helpful!

BONUS BREAKFAST: I have a new favorite, so I had to add it here! This recipe for Super Low Carb Breakfast Burritos is SO good!

    1. I’m sorry, I don’t have one! That’s a great idea, though, and I’ll make sure to include one next time.

  1. Wow!! This is awesome. I’m sure it was a lot of work. I’ve had serious problems starting this program. It’s just not sinking in. All this information you have here will simplify it for me.

    1. Kathy, I’m so glad this is helpful for you. THM was really overwhelming for me at first, so I just started with breakfast and made sure I had the basics down -protein as the base, then E ingredients for an E meal or S ingredients for an S meal. Once I felt confident, I moved on to lunches, then dinners, and soon it was second nature. Please be reassured that I think it takes awhile to sink in with EVERYONE. It is so different from what we are used to eating! But it definitely works and it’s definitely worth it!

  2. Thank you, very much! With the three adults in the house eating strong on THM, 7 kids (ages 5-17) tagging along mostly THM crossovers, now we found out one of them is Celiac. Your list helps soooo much! You are amazing. ❤

    1. Anna-Marie, thank you so much for your kind words of encouragement! We’ve navigated the Celiac disease issue, and although it’s not fun it is very doable!

  3. Thank you for sharing. I appreciate the recommendation you made to start with breakfast and get a handle on the program. I am having a hard time with breakfast and lunch, mainly because I work. I’m a teacher…breakfast needs to be something I can eat in the car and lunch has to be packable
    I’m going to focus on one and get myself on track! 😃
