13 tips for a healthy breakfast

breakfast
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I'm certain that you hear that all the time and its true. So no matter how busy your lifestyle is, you need to make sure that you have time for breakfast.

Most people who do eat breakfast, tend to rush out of their homes with a donut in the hand. That's a bad idea. Since breakfast is so important, you better watch out what it is made out of. Jumping to the sugary breakfast foods is the most common mistake.

Have you ever noticed how hard it is to not fall a sleep at work? Have you ever noticed how during the day you get tired? This is caused by eating the wrong foods for breakfast. You don't realize how important this meal is. What are some good things to eat for breakfast? First, lets start off with what are the bad foods.

Don't eat donuts

For the reasons mentioned above.

Don't eat any cereals that are loaded with sugar

This is nothing more than empty calories. They don't offer you anything. Not only that, but too much of this and you will even gain weight. The sluggish feeling you have before lunch is because you ate too much sugar!

Don't eat a ton of fried foods

Don't stuff your self with bacon, fried eggs, and french toast. The added fat will weigh you down.

Don't eat those pastries that come in the boxes

These are loaded with sugar. They don't offer you anything that is actually good for you. They rob you of all the things that you should be eating.

Don't drink coffee

Coffee gives you energy, but it can't replace breakfast.

Eat a cereal that is low in sugar

If its low in sugar cereal with milk is a great breakfast. It is a good all around meal.

Make yourself an egg sandwich

Most people seem to love the egg sandwiches at fast food restaurants. Why not make one at home? You can put cheese and ham on it. Use your imagination.

Eggs are a good breakfast food

Eggs are not bad for you, maybe the yolks are a bit bad, but the whites are OK. Eat them but not too much! And don't drink them raw!

Pancakes

If you have one of those griddles that you don't need to add fat too you can have them for breakfast more often. To cut down on calories, instead of using butter and syrup, put fresh fruit on them.

Juice is great for breakfast

This is a discussed topic in several posts. Fresh juices are very healthy and nutritional.

Old fashioned toast

Just watch out for the butter and other things you put on it

Oatmeal

A great breakfast, add some milk and a bit of fruits and you are ready for a good day.

Fruit salad

Refreshing, tasty and healthy, just mix your favorite fruits and call it a breakfast.

You see, a good breakfast isn't hard to make, and can be very tasty. I hope you like those tips and you stick to them!

Green Smoothies are a delicious way to get tons of nutrition into your day. I drink them for breakfast or lunch or as a snack. Basically, 2-3 pieces of fruit, a handful of any greens (think: spinach, parsley, romaine, cilantro, herbs, kale, etc) and some water. Blend it up.

The sweetness from the fruit offsets the bitterness of the greens and they're delicious!

Cheers!
