Do you know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day? Eating breakfast helps jump-start your metabolism after it slows down during your sleep. Not only that, but eating breakfast is an important tool in maintaining weight loss. So don’t wait until lunch to grab a bite; eat a filling, healthy meal early in the day to keep your energy up, brain on, and weight loss goals in check. Studies also show that children who eat breakfast perform better in school.
A complete good breakfast consists of a combination of fiber, protein, carbs and some healthy fats. Filling up on fiber and protein helps keep you full long into the morning. A high fiber breakfast also aids you in good bowel movement early in the morning among many other health benefits.
I have a pretty much boring breakfast routine daily. I prefer easy straight forward breakfast and these are my daily favourites and fresh fruits.
I seriously don’t mind eating oatmeal or granola everyday (I can almost see the disbelief look on your face). Yet sometimes I do get into a rut too. The flowchart below is just what you and I need for some fresh healthy breakfast choices.
This flowchart was designed by Andrew at Eating Rules, in response to a reader’s request for some fresh breakfast inspiration. It’s fresh and funny — and yet comes with very practical ideas. He starts by checking:
Are you “so flippin’ late!”? Grab some nuts and fruits
Got a few minutes more? Hot or Cold? There are a lot healthy breakfast choices.
Do you have breakfast ideas to share?
