What Philly Fitness Trainers Really Eat for Breakfast

You can thank these Philly trainers for breakfast inspo for days.

We could easily eat breakfast for every single meal, every single day. As such, we’re constantly on the hunt for fresh, healthy ideas for our morning fuel. Thankfully, Philly’s fitness trainers have all kinds of ideas we’re more than happy to steal. Here’s a few you can borrow too.

Avocado and Chocolate Protein Shake

Spin instructor and personal trainer Jessica Sullivan is pretty obsessed with her breakfast shake, which relies on chocolate vegan protein powder, almond butter, coconut milk, half an avocado, a little vanilla — and, the magic ingredient, cool coffee. YUM.

Egg Whites with Hummus

When SoulCycle instructor and instructor development officer Ryan Lewis doesn’t start his day with his fave smoothie (peanut butter protein, almond milk, frozen banana and spinach, and beetroot and mace powder), he whips up some egg whites. Sometimes, he’ll even top them with red pepper flakes, when he’s “feeling spicy.”

 Trainer and Fitler Club’s new director of health and wellness Jayel Lewis says she’s a “creature of habit,” so she tends to stick to the same breakfast. Her go-to? Three eggs, a piece of pepper jack cheese, a Scottish muffin, and all-natural turkey sausage. Yeah, we’d like to eat that every morning, too.

 Avocado Toast with Everything But the Bagel Seasoning

Is there anything more universally beloved than Trader Joe’s Everything But the Bagel Seasoning? Probably not. Grace & Glory Yoga Fishtown instructor Kristen Koton likes to use it on top of two pieces of toast with avocado, one egg, and Yellowbird Sriracha, which is sweetened with agave.

Old-Fashioned Oats with Berries

Chestnut Hill Cycle Fitness owner and instructor Alli Bradley likes to make old-fashioned oats with gluten-free granola and cashew milk. She’ll also add things like hemp seeds, blueberries, blackberries, and strawberries to the mix, which sounds like a breakfast that’s both sweet and satisfying.

Peanut Butter Banana Toast

Revel Ride instructor Reem Ellis opts for something that’s quick and easy: toast with peanut butter, sliced banana, and a little honey. She likes to pair this with a smoothie made of vanilla protein powder, kale, frozen tropical fruits, and almond milk.
