3 Breakfasts That Are the Perfect Start to Any Day
By Genevieve Cunningham
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. You've heard this before, right? In recent years, breakfast has taken a turn in the backseat. More people are skipping breakfast in the name of good health. And for some people, this approach works. But others really need their morning meal. They need the energy and the flavor and the routine. And that's OK too! The key is to eat a breakfast that will improve your health and your day from the start. If you're looking for healthy go-to breakfast ideas, take a look at these options that are the perfect start to any day.
Oatmeal is a very good choice for breakfast. It's low-calorie, good for cholesterol, and quick and easy to prepare. Oatmeal contains a soluble fiber, which means you'll feel fuller longer. No need to worry about the mid-morning crash because oatmeal will keep you satisfied. And of course, oatmeal is delicious. Add a little sugar, some cinnamon. Maybe try butter or add fruit. Adapt it to your liking, and you'll have an easy, healthy, go-to breakfast for any day of the week.
Egg whites are full of protein, which makes them a good way to start your day. Protein kicks off your metabolism and also keeps you feeling full. If you leave the yolk out of the dish, it's incredibly low-calorie -- likely less than 50 calories for the egg whites alone. Add some fresh vegetables or whole wheat toast, and you have one of the healthiest breakfasts for the day's start.
Greek Yogurt and Fruit
While any yogurt is potentially good for your body, Greek yogurt adds a little extra protein. Along with the protein kick, you'll still get the probiotic benefits that come with any yogurt. If you add a little fruit to the menu, you may also get plenty of water, antioxidants, and various vitamins to your menu. Greek yogurt and fruit is delicious at any time of year, but may sound particularly tasty during the spring and summer.
If you're going to eat breakfast, do it right. Don't eat sugar-filled junk or high calorie, fatty foods. Choose something healthy and beneficial to your body. Use these three dishes as quick and easy go-to options, and you can maintain a healthy breakfast all year long.
