2B Mindset requires a breakfast plate that is half protein and half fiber-filled carbohydrates. These are 15 of my favorite 2B Mindset breakfast recipes and ideas for you. They’re loaded with healthy and approved proteins and fiber filled carbs.
The 2B Mindset program is a new nutrition program from Beachbody. It teaches us how to eat healthy by providing easy to follow food lists and plate portions for each meal. 2B Mindset is vegetable heavy for lunch, snack, and dinner, which means that you might have some trouble at first learning how to eat enough veggies with these meals.
These healthy breakfast options will help you start the day off right. You’ll have plenty of protein and carbs for energy to get you through that morning slump. Give these recipes a try or add them your meal plan for next week. Having lots of healthy and easy 2B Mindset breakfast options on hand means you won’t get bored and stray from your plan.
What is the 2B Mindset Program?
The 2B Mindset nutrition program was all new to me! I had never heard of it before and then I started noticing some similarities and differences between my favorite program, the 21 Day Fix, and this new option. They’re definitely different, as you don’t use containers or measure portions on 2B Mindset. You do, however, plate your meals in a way that makes sure you’re following some common themes–lots of vegetables, and an equal amount of protein and fiber filled carbs.
Breakfast on the 2B Mindset program is all about protein and fiber-filled carbohydrates. The combination of protein and fiber will help give you both energy and a lasting fullness. Fiber and protein also work really well with plenty of water to help stave off hunger and cravings. I’m pretty excited about these 2B Mindset breakfast recipes because they’re easy to start and then walk away to finish getting ready. I even added a section with 2B Mindset Instant Pot breakfast recipes for you.
The whole basis of the 2B Mindset program is focused on diving your plate into food groups–veggies, protein, and fiber-filled carbs. Each meal has a specific portion for each food group and laying out your meals accordingly helps you find healthy choices and dietary balance. In the morning, this is actually more important than you might think! Starting your day off with a plate that is half fiber-filled carbs and half protein gets your body working in just the right way! You won’t have a sugar crash mid-day, nor will you be starving after a few hours.
What can you eat for breakfast on 2B Mindset?
One serving of fiber filled carbohydrates paired with one serving of protein makes for the perfect way to start your day in 2B Mindset. Adding veggies into the mix is definitely an extra bonus! Of course, you should be drinking 16 ounces of water before all of your meals while following the 2B Nutrition Plan.

Flour Free Pancakes Using cottage cheese in this recipe makes it higher in protein than FFCs, so you’ll need to add a small FFC to balance it out.
Sheet Pan Sweet Potato Hash with Eggs I’d cut back a little on the sweet potatoes here to be sure that you’re sticking to your 1/2 protein and 1/2 carbs rati0–or you could add in some extra protein, like approved breakfast meats.
I appreciate that these 2B Mindset breakfast recipes vary from shakes and smoothies all the way up to casseroles and sandwiches. Variety is the spice of life and keeping things new and exciting is a great way to see success on any healthy lifestyle program. If you get bored of eating the same things you are more likely to quit and turn back to unhealthy choices!

Should I meal prep on the 2B Mindset Nutrition Plan?
Meal prepping helps me stay on track and focused with my healthy lifestyle choices. If I have healthy options ready to eat that, I don’t reach for the bad stuff or quick options. Many of these breakfast choices you can make once and eat from all week! If you like to have meals prepped in advance or on hand for busy mornings, give these 2B Mindset breakfasts a try and see if that helps you stick to the plan! The options below are so easy to make as a breakfast meal prep.
I am a big fan on meal planning and prepping for any healthy lifestyle–”diet” or not. Having some healthy options to grab and go is important for everyone. You know what they say–if you fail to plan, you plan to fail.

Vanilla Peach Overnight Oats I’d cut back on the oats (maybe use half) and fruit for this recipe, since it’s a little high in relation to the protein. Or you could leave the recipe as is and increase your protein by snacking on a few slices of turkey bacon or sausage while you’re eating breakfast.
Healthy Mini Frittatas You can customize these so easily to add more veggies or protein! They’re a great 2b mindset breakfast option and can easily be cooked in the oven.
