3 Breakfast Options to Start the Day Off Right
By Genevieve Cunningham
There’s no denying that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It helps start the day off on the right foot, and it can contribute greatly to our ability to function both physically and mentally. But what sort of meals are considered good options for breakfast? Donuts? Cinnamon rolls? Cereal and milk? While these options might be delicious, they’re definitely not good ways to start your day and diet. To get your health off to a healthy start every day, take a look at these delicious and healthy breakfast options.
Oatmeal is such an excellent breakfast option. It’s an oat based food that is packed with healthy nutrients. It’s very low calorie, but it will give you healthy doses of Vitamins A and B, calcium, magnesium, fiber, and protein. It’s a quick meal, generally taking less than five minutes total to prepare. It’s also inexpensive, easily adaptable to taste preferences, and incredibly satisfying to the body. Buy some old-fashioned oats, steel cut, or quick oats at your local grocer, and enjoy an easy healthy meal every morning.
Eggs are an interesting food. According to some people, eggs are incredibly healthy! Others seem to consider eggs too high in fat if you eat the yolk. So what’s the truth? Probably somewhere in the middle. If you’re on an incredibly fat restricted diet, you may want to skip the yolk. But for the most part, eggs really are a healthy way to start the day. They give you a blast of protein, healthy fats, and plenty of energy. They’re inexpensive (same as oatmeal), easily adaptable (again, like oatmeal), and a long time staple of breakfast foods. Buy a dozen eggs, experiment with recipes, and you have one more healthy way to start your day.
Yogurt and Fruit
If you prefer a light option for breakfast, look no further than yogurt and a little of your favorite fruit. You can use traditional yogurt, or you can choose the Greek option, which gives you a little extra protein in the morning. Your fruit choices can change from day to day or stay the same all year long -- whichever you prefer. You’ll get a low-calorie meal with plenty of flavor, calcium, protein, and natural sugars to give you a burst of energy in a healthy way.
A huge part of getting your diet right is honing in your breakfast meals. Eating a healthy breakfast means starting the day with a blast of nutrients and plenty of energy. If you need a little help getting started, just use these options. With a little planning and minor changes to your morning routine, you can start your morning with better health and a more positive perspective every day.
