Many people consider what you eat for breakfast as the fuel that powers your body throughout the day. 

Many people consider what you eat for breakfast as the fuel that powers your body throughout the day. 

It is thought to be essential to eat well and get proper nutrition in the morning, so that you are functionally fit both mentally and physically. They say eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper, and keeping that in mind, here are some healthy breakfast options that will provide you with a good dose of nutrition at the cost of just 300 calories or less.

Quinoa porridge
 
As if quinoa wasn’t enough of a nutritional powerhouse, the addition of ingredients like blueberries, apple slices, and milk makes for a well rounded breakfast cereal that is rich in nutrition and taste. The best part? You only consume a modest 218 calories.
 
Peanut butter-banana sandwich
 
This would make for a delicious and healthy breakfast, but it is a bit dicey when measuring the calories. Depending on the quantity and quality of peanut butter and the type of bread you use to make the sandwich, the calories will differ. The ideal under-300 calorie peanut butter-banana sandwich should comprise of one tablespoon of natural peanut butter, half a banana cut into slices, and whole wheat or multigrain bread.
 
Paneer paratha
 
Parathas are often associated with being unhealthy, and rightly so, since it requires the use of cooking oil. However, by preparing it in desi ghee instead of cooking oil, you can get a comparatively healthier paneer paratha. Reduce the amount of desi ghee to just one teaspoon, and you have yourself a highly nutritious and healthy Indian breakfast that has just 294 calories.
 
Oats idli
 
South Indian breakfasts are lauded for their healthy menu. Take for example idli, a puffy cake that is made by steaming batter made from urad dal and rice. Add to the batter protein and fiber rich oats, and you have yourself a highly nutritious breakfast. With each oats idli providing 30 calories, you can eat as many as ten and while still maintaining the 300 calorie mark.
 
Methi cheela
 
Made with low calorie ingredients like methi, sprouted moong, and ginger, methi cheela makes for one of the healthiest and most filling Indian breakfasts. With a total calorie count of 294, methi cheela is a nutritious breakfast that is good for those looking to maintain or lose weight.
 
Egg muffin
 
While commercial egg muffins may be devoid of nutrition and loaded with calories, homemade egg muffin provides you with the goodness of nutrition from eggs, spinach, cheddar cheese, and tomato. Weighing in at 216 calories, the egg muffin does not even need to be made with bread, something that would add unnecessary calories.
