Skipping your breakfast is a big mistake. It is the most essential meal of the day and if you want to get a fit and healthy body you must have breakfasts.
I know, most of us rush, but change your daily routine by getting up earlier or neglecting unnecessary things you do in the morning. You can also prepare or cook the meals you are going to have the day before to save time.
Many years ago I did not have breakfasts since I had to travel a lot in the morning. Of course, after some hours I became hungry, and I had some sugar-rich bakeries with saturated fats. That was the worst thing I could do! It is obvious that I always felt myself tired and had no energy. It was because the high-sugar foods disturbed my blood sugar level.
Eating in the morning is crucial, it is as simple as that. It provides the energy that your body needs for the entire morning, supports weight loss and provides the nutrients your body needs.
It also has psychological benefits. A nutritious, delicious breakfast surely makes you happy in the morning.
Let me show you some healthy breakfast foods which take almost no time to prepare, and they are yummy. Here are seven suggestions for each day.
- Whole-wheat toast with peanut butter and fruits. Whole grains are full of beneficial carbs. Peanut butter gives the protein and the good fatty acids, and fruits provide the minerals, vitamins and fiber. My favorite morning fruits are bananas, apples, berries, figs and pears.
- Smoothies. There are tons of smoothie recipes out there. They are easy and fast to make. If you are in a rush you just gulp down a cup.
- Greek yogurt with grains and fresh fruits. Greek yogurt has several health benefits, so it is recommended to include it in your diet.
- Sandwiches made from whole-grain bread, lean ham or other meat, eggs, cheese and with tons of veggies. Sandwiches are my favorite breakfast foods, especially the egg ones.
- Oatmeal with fruits, yogurt, nuts, seeds, dried or fresh fruit. Oats are full of beneficial carbohydrates. Nuts such as almond, walnuts, etc. contain a lot of healthy fats such as omega-3 fatty acid. I usually add some cinnamon to my oatmeal.
- Eggs in any form. You can make omelets, hard-boiled eggs, etc. Many nutritionist suggest taking out the yolk of the egg since it is high in cholesterol and calories. If I have eggs in the morning, I never do that simply because the yolk contains so many beneficial nutrients even if it is calorie-rich. I need that goodies to start my day!
- Whole-grain muffins or other bakeries. The worst things you can have for breakfast are the sugary muffins, doughnuts and others. However, if you love these things you can make your own from whole-wheat and make them sweet with a little honey or organic low-sugar jam. (I make my jam without adding sugar. It is perfect!)
Finally, some tips what to drink in the morning.
- Tea, especially green tea is a good source of caffeine, and they have several other health benefits.
- Besides, you can start your day with a freshly squeezed lemon water which help to detoxify and hydrate your body.
- You can also drink low-fat milk. It is rich in calcium, vitamins and protein.
