I get asked a lot about what I eat for breakfast, so here are some healthy breakfast suggestions that I eat regularly! Add these ideas to your morning routine, for energy, a happy and healthy metabolism, to feel fuller, longer – and of course to enjoy your first meal of the day!
One thing people ask me is if they can skip breakfast to help lose weight. Don’t do it! Skipping breakfast – whether to lose weight or because you are in too much of a hurry – is a bad idea. When you skip meals, you deprive your body of food, and it then starts to conserve energy. In other words, you body burns fewer calories to protect itself from starving. And because your body slows down when it is sleeping, you need food in the morning to give your metabolism a kick-start. Plus your AM meal helps to provide energy and brainpower!
While eating a balanced breakfast is the best option (check out my 10-Week Plan for breakfast options that are balanced, healthy and delicious), there are shortcuts that can get you through in a pinch.
Here are five ideas to try when you are short on time yet want to give your body and mind the energy and stamina they need for the morning – give them a try!
Some other quick and healthy breakfast suggestions include hard boiled eggs (I try to always have some on hand as an easy source of protein); pre-sliced veggies and fruit that you can bring with you to tide you over until you have time for a real meal; and cheese slices that you can add to a whole-grain piece of toast. These are all going to be healthier for you than a stop at the drive-thru or the vending machine!
