It is often said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Consuming a complete and healthy breakfast each day sets the stage for outstanding energy levels, stable blood sugar and better control over your appetite for the rest of the day. Eating breakfast is also good for weight management, weight loss and overall improved health. Some studies have even linked eating breakfast to better memory, improved concentration, healthier cholesterol levels and a reduced risk of diabetes, heart disease and obesity.
What foods should be included to ensure a healthy breakfast?
Although they are quick and convenient grab-and-go breakfast choices, donuts, bagels, toast, pancakes and other starchy sweets can leave you hungry, tired and sluggish for the remainder of the day. These sugary, carb-heavy breakfasts may also cause you to gain weight and may even increase your risk of chronic diseases.
A healthy breakfast should contain a balanced combination of protein, grains, fruits and vegetables. Foods such as eggs, nuts and dairy products such as yogurt, milk and cheese all contain proteins and healthy fats. These foods can be combined with whole grain carbohydrates like cereals, oatmeal and whole grain breads for a nutritionally complete meals. The combination of fiber, protein and healthy fats gives you sustained energy for the day and also makes you feel full and keeps you satisfied. Breakfast is a good opportunity to start your day off with nutritionally-dense foods. Think of breakfast as the opportunity to give yourself a boost of the “good stuff” early in the day. Not only does a complete and healthy breakfast provide your body with necessary vitamins, minerals and nourishment at the start of the day, it sets the correct tone for a day of healthy choices and good eating throughout the rest of the day.
So how can you ensure that you have time to enjoy a healthy, complete, well-thought-out breakfast each day? Busy schedules leave us rushing out the door to school, work and other daily responsibilities. It is possible to enjoy a quick, hot breakfast that contains more than just a cup of coffee as you dash out the door.
