Eating a healthy breakfast will support your overall performance, focus, and energy all day long. Your first bites of the day also have a dramatic impact on your body's metabolism. Metabolism is the result of all the processes in your body working together to breakdown food and create the energy you need to keep going. Aim to eat a hearty breakfast within an hour of waking up and try to include a variety of 2-3 food groups.
What It Looks Like
Choose whole grains, whole fruits, and whole proteins. To slim down the sugar, try muesli and oatmeal instead of boxed cereals. Try an apple or an orange instead of juice. Try an egg, nuts, beans, or turkey, instead of bacon and sausage.
Quick n' Healthy Breakfast Meals
In a glass jar pour in 1/2 cup of dry oats. Next, add 3/4 cup almond milk and toss in a handful of berries (fresh or frozen). If you want to supercharge your oats, top it off with a sprinkle of wheat germ, chia seeds, or coconut flakes. Want it sweeter? Add in a few drops of honey. Let it sit in the refrigerator overnight and come morning, grab it and go!
