The frozen food aisle of your local grocery store offers a lot more than mixed vegetables. It’s about to be your go-to section of the grocery store for all your breakfast needs, too.

Registered dietitian and Real Nutrition founder Amy Shapiro, RDN, shares a grocery haul of breakfast items that get her stamp of approval. Each of these healthy frozen breakfasts is low in sugar, nutritious, and satiating, with plenty of protein and fiber to keep you full until lunch.

Healthy frozen breakfasts to simplify your morning

1. KASHI 7-GRAIN FROZEN WAFFLES

Kashi’s frozen waffles contain 7 grams of fiber per serving, sourced from whole wheat flour and oats. “I would recommend adding a tablespoon of any nut butter, a few slices of strawberries, and a sprinkle of chia or hemp seeds for a balanced and nutrient rich plant based breakfast,” Shapiro says. If you prefer a savory breakfast, she suggests topping a waffle with an egg and avocado slices.

2. SWEET EARTH FOODS BREAKFAST BURRITO

Made with potatoes, tofu, and red bell peppers, Sweet Earth Foods’ breakfast packs 17 grams of protein, 4 grams of fiber, and a healthy dose of vitamin C. “Overall, the numbers are very balanced and I could see someone feeling satisfied from this meal for at least a few hours,” Shapiro says, giving this breakfast burrito an a-okay. Her tip on making it even more satiating: eat it with a side of half an avocado for a serving of healthy fats.

3. AMY’S BREAKFAST BURRITO

Amy’s frozen breakfast burrito is made with whole wheat flour, tofu, black beans, and potatoes. “I like that it is vegan and whole food based,” she says, adding that the ingredients should keep you full for a few hours. It’s a little high in sodium, so just keep your sodium intake low the rest of the day.

4. DAILY HARVEST SWEET POTATO AND WILD RICE HASH

Shapiro likes to start her day with a savory breakfast.”It’s high in fiber, plant-based, contains heart healthy fats from avocados and seeds, along with antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals,” she says. You can also pronounce every ingredient on it’s label, which to me is very important especially these days when so many items are masquerading as healthy but actually are not.”  One serving has 5 grams of fiber, 7 grams of protein, and no added sugar.
