Breakfast is important, that's something that will likely never change. It's the first meal of the day, and it's a big factor in your energy levels for not only the remainder of the morning, but for the rest of your day.
A healthy breakfast is the first step in the right direction for an energy filled day. There are plenty of options for a good breakfast, here are some of my personal favorites that I tend to go to.
1. Peanut butter on whole grain bread. Whole grain bread is full of insoluble fiber which keeps you feeling fuller longer without having to pack on a ton of calories. The peanut butter is a solid source of protein, which is useful if you like getting in a workout every morning.
2. Hard boiled eggs. These are very heavy in protein, and low in nearly everything else. I try to limit it to 2 or 3 in the morning strictly due to the high cholestorol levels.
3. Greek yogurt with fresh fruit. This is a really easy one, just throw some fruit into your bowl of greek yogurt. It's important to stay away from flavored yogurts, those have tons of added sugar. Throw some strawberries, blueberries, and some mixed nuts into your yogurt for flavor.
4. Toast with an avocado spread topped with an egg. This one will take a few minutes but man is it delicious! The toast is your carbs, the avocado is your good fat, and the egg is your protein. Make sure you use whole grain bread to get the best nutritional benefit.
5. Oatmeal with mixed fruit. This is another great one, similar to yogurt and mixed fruit. Oatmeal is a staple in good breakfast foods, just throw in some strawberries and blueberries for a great tasting and nutritious breakfast.
Appleways Soft Oatmeal Bars make a great mid morning snack after your healthy breakfast or a grab and go breakfast if you're short on time. They're packed full of whole grains to keep you feeling fuller longer. Not to meniton, they're delicious!
