Our Top 6 Slimming & Weight Watchers Friendly Breakfast Ideas
If you’re anything like us you’ll find staying on a slimming plan really tricky if you’re having the same food over and over again, so we’ve put together some Slimming & Weight Watchers Friendly Breakfast ideas!
We’re great believers in variety is the spice of like, so if you don’t mix things up and keep it interesting you’ll soon start struggling and fall off the wagon – that’s where these Slimming & Weight Watchers Friendly Breakfast ideas come in handy!
For us, the most difficult meal to vary every day when following a slimming diet is probably breakfast.
I tend to use my dairy allowance for milk in drinks, or for cheese, so it’s very rare for me to have cereal for breakfast.
Yoghurt and fruit also seem to be a popular option, but for some reason, it never really keeps me full for very long.
Anyone that follows a slimming diet will probably understand when I say it’s dangerous when you start to feel hungry between meals so that’s why I think it’s really important to start the day off the right way and have something tasty and filling for an on-plan breakfast.
We’ve come up with a few Slimming & Weight Watchers Friendly breakfast ideas to make it a bit easier to stay on plan.
They’re all pretty easy to make, some of these Slimming & Weight Watchers Friendly breakfast ideas can even be made the night before (or at least partly prepared) and then cooked or reheated at breakfast time if you’re a bit rushed in the morning.
Many of these recipes can have extra healthy food added to them too, whether it’s fruit or veg.
These Breakfast Bakes are a great Slimming & Weight Watchers friendly breakfast, brunch or lunch recipe, and they’ve proved to be very popular.
They’re really easy to make and soooo filling – no need for any accompaniments so easy on the washing up too!
We’ve also got an alternative version with some different breakfast ingredients – take a look at this Sausage, Mushroom and Tomato Breakfast Bake recipe!
These breakfast bakes can be prepped in advance and popped into the oven with the egg and cheese when you’re ready to eat them, saving you some time on preparing them first thing in the morning. Just be sure to keep them in the fridge!
Sweet Potato and Carrot Rostis
I always find it really difficult to get vegetables into my breakfasts but these Sweet Potato and Carrot Rostis are a perfect way! Ideal for a slimming plan!
These can be made in advance and then reheated, and would make a great brunch dish. You even serve them with smoked salmon or kippers if you fancied something different!
If you love a potato rosti, then this Smoked Salmon, Potato Rosti and Poached Eggs recipe will also be right up your street!

This French Toast totally indulgent, sweet and, well, amazing! And it’s easier than you think to make a Slimming & Weight Watchers Friendly version of a perfect weekend breakfast dish.
You could serve this with any fruit you fancied – raspberries or strawberries would be tasty too, or even some frozen fruit. Top with fat free yoghurt, aerosol cream or just some maple syrup.
If you prefer a chocolatey breakfast hit, then why not try our Chocolate French Toast? It’s a really rich, breakfast treat – any chocolate lover would enjoy it!
You could even substitute the chocolate in this recipe for some jam if you prefer! Just remember to record the calrories if you alter any of the ingredients.
Soft Boiled Eggs
Dippy eggs are my absolute favourite, so here’s how we make the perfect Soft Boiled Eggs. You can have them with whatever you want; wholemeal bread cut into soldiers, asparagus, potato waffles (see below!)
Boiled eggs aren’t just for breakfast! Why not try them in this Ramen Noodle Bowls recipe?
Onion and Chive Potato Waffles
Waffles, whether sweet or savoury make the perfect breakfast and these Onion and Chive Waffles can be served with whatever you want. Why not try them with some smoked salmon and soft boiled eggs or some sausages, bacon and beans.
We’ve also got these deeeelish Potato, Cheese and Onion Waffles – great for breakfast but also as an accompaniment to any meal!
You can serve these waffles with bacon and baked beans, or tomatoes and mushrooms, but they’d also be really tasty as part of an evening meal with a steak or chicken! They’d be great to dunk into soup too as a substitute for bread.
