Build a Better Breakfast
By Donna Stark
Wake up! It's time to make the most of your mornings, and the best way to do that is to make sure you are eating a healthy breakfast. Filling your body with the right amount of fuel is vital, and it's especially so if your nine-to-five job has somehow turned into a seven-to-six job right under your nose. Those long hours at work demand some serious nutrition, but how can you achieve that when your normal morning generally consists of a few sips of coffee as you run out the door?
A Better Breakfast
Honestly, most of us would love a delicious buffet of breakfast foods at our disposal every day, but in the real world, there simply isn't enough time to make that happen. But a lack of time in the mornings doesn't mean you can't load up on some good stuff. Take a look at some yummy suggestions from your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic.
Homemade energy bars - Leave the protein bars on the shelf at your local grocery store and make your own instead! This is a great way to customize the recipe to your tastes and to also adjust the ingredients to match your diet requirements. Try to include as many berries, nuts, and seeds as you can for the most benefit.
Homemade trail mix - A good thing to remember is that you don't need to sit down in order to enjoy a healthy breakfast, so if grab and go is your usual routine, homemade trail mix fits the bill! You may even be surprised by how fast it can be and how quickly it will boost your energy.
Smoothies - With just a little bit of prep work (which you can do ahead of time), smoothies could become your forever solution to the morning chaos in your house. Simply fill the blender with greens, berries, pineapple, mangos, avocado, carrots (your options are endless) and hit the button to start. You can even use the time your smoothie is blending to pack everything up so you can hit the road as soon as it is done.
Avocado toast - We all know toast only takes just a few minutes to make, but if you can spare a few minutes more, why not smash some avocado on top? Avocado toast is a great way to boost your nutrition and fuel your body. You can even make it more filling by adding a soft-boiled egg on top too!

Stop sacrificing your health because you need to rush out the door in the mornings. With just a couple of extra minutes, and maybe some advanced preparation, you can enjoy a quick and healthy breakfast any day you want. So go ahead! Start today and see how much of a difference you will feel!
