Hate Breakfast? 3 Easy Options to Grab and Go

By Genevieve Cunningham

For some people, food is just not a pleasant thought first thing in the morning. Maybe you want your coffee or your Diet Coke. But food? It just doesn't sound good. Of course you've probably heard the old saying -- breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Is this true? It probably depends, but there's no denying that breakfast gets you moving and helps set the tone for the day. So if you're going to eat it, you want it to be healthy. If you need to adjust your mornings with a quick and easy healthy breakfast, take a look at these options to try today. 

Yogurt

Yogurt contains good bacteria that is healthy for the gut. We need good bacteria to balance out the bad, and eating yogurt every day can help you do it. As a bonus, yogurt is delicious. It's easy -- just grab a cup and a spoon and enjoy. Opt for Greek yogurt for an extra dose of protein and do your best to stay away from anything sugar packed. With a healthy yogurt, you can start your day off extremely light but headed in the right direction.

Fruit

If you're looking for a bit of a pick-me-up in the mornings, consider eating a little fruit. Fruit is a natural sugar, so it can boost your energy and wake you up. And there's certainly no denying that fruit is healthy. Choose a banana for the ease, or go for berries for the antioxidants. If you have a little extra time, consider adding the fruit to the yogurt for a homemade parfait of sorts. Fruit is easy, healthy, quick, and delicious -- the perfect combination for your morning breakfast needs. 

Toast and Nut Butter

Another great option, and one that is slightly more hardy, is to eat a piece of whole wheat toast with a little bit of nut butter on top. This is a carb-based breakfast, but for those who need a bit more in the mornings, it's a good option. This breakfast choice is likely to keep you feeling fuller longer, but without weighing you down and making you sleepy. Give this a try with your favorite beverage, and you'll gain a little energy in the mornings in a quick and healthy way. 

Bonus: Consider Intermittent Fasting

If you really can't stand breakfast, consider skipping it with purpose and intention. What does this mean? Try intermittent fasting. This method requires you to eat in a window of time -- usually six to eight hours -- and then fast for the rest of the day. This means you could easily skip breakfast as a part of your normal eating plan. Does it work? It depends on you! Some people swear by its effectiveness, but gently give it a try first to make sure your body agrees.

Breakfast is indeed a very important part of the day. If you want the day to be healthy, start it off that way! Use these easy breakfast choices to start your day off in the right way with little effort and big benefits by the day's end.
