Ideas for a quick and healthy breakfast being that it is considered by experts to be the most important meal of the day. That being said so many of us neglect breakfast. And there seems to be a lot of evidence to suggest that our body and mind suffers when we neglect to break the the six to eight hour fast with a healthy breakfast each morning.
We spend six to eight hours sleeping.
Upon arising your body needs food to keep going. When you don't prepare a healthy nutritious breakfast at home, you will find that your options on the run will be too much fat, too much sugar and way too many carbs and you will find by stopping at the convenient fast food is not so fast. The fifteen or so minutes spent in line could have been used to fix something healthy and good at home.
If you are the type to skip breakfast, here is a solution to starting the day with a good breakfast which will help you keep your hunger in check as well as give you the natural energy boost to start your day.
1. Oatmeal – This food makes a good hot meal that contains lots of filling fiber to keep you from getting hungry later on in the morning. Depending on your taste, you can take five minutes to fix it on the stove or use the microwave for instant oatmeal. My grandson like the variety of flavors that come with instant oatmeal he throws it in the microwave heads out the door bowl in hand to go teach his martial arts class.
The night before, you can put together a container of add-ins like blueberries, strawberries and bananas that can be tossed on top for a bit of antioxidant power.
2. Fruit and vegetable smoothies – These are good any morning but particularly on a hot day. You’ll have to blend the ingredients together in the morning, but the prep work can be done at night. Cube your fruit and vegetables and place them into a container. Instead of frozen yogurt in the morning, use a cup of plain yogurt. Add ice cubes, a little water and blend.
3. Egg sandwich – The eggs can be cooked the night before and placed in a sealed container. In the morning, warm up the eggs in the microwave. If you want, add some chopped veggies or shredded cheese. Serve on toasted wheat bread. The night before, place two pieces of bread into a sandwich bag for each family member. They can toast their bread as they get up and place the sandwich in the bag for easy transport for Breakfast in the car to work or school.
4. Yogurt with seeds nuts and fruit – Some people like to eat yogurt. But, yogurt by itself won’t keep you from being hungry. Add some seed and nuts and a few blueberries to the mix. This makes a great breakfast for those mornings when you are running late.
With these quick breakfast ideas and some meal planning your battle with breakfast is over and you will get a healthy nutritious meal and not have to wait in line at the fast food joint to get a breakfast that has too many fats,calories and carbs. These quick breakfast ideas are much healthier and only take minutes to make.
