I know what some of you are thinking. Making breakfast requires extra time in the morning that you would rather spend sleeping. I get it. Throughout college I have learned the importance of eating breakfast before starting a long day at school or work. Skipping breakfast can result in a lack of energy and a lack of focus. Fitting breakfast into your schedule is worth the sacrifice!
Eating breakfast helps get your mind and body fueled for the day ahead. Dietitians and nutrition experts recommend a breakfast consisting of good carbs and fiber with protein. There are simple guidelines on how to choose a healthy breakfast. Stick with carb sources such as whole grain cereals or oatmeal. Fruit is always a good choice and is easy to take on the go. Eggs are the best source of protein for a healthy morning meal. Also keep in mind that Greek yogurt is a better source of protein than regular yogurt. Eating healthy in the morning, even something small, gets your body and metabolism going to help you make smart decisions throughout the day.
There are plenty of options out there to keep breakfast exciting. Here are some examples and ideas for a healthy breakfast!
