If your life is as busy as mine some days, you tend to forget about the most important meal of the day:BREAKFAST. This is terrible! You should never skip breakfast. Here’s 5 quick and healthy options for breakfast for those of you who are steadily on the move.
They assist with weight loss
They are a good source of protein
They are inexpensive
Make them in minutes: boil, fry…. I think microwaving eggs is gross so I won’t recommend that. If it’s easier for you, you can even boil some ahead of time and just grab them on the way out.
Oatmeal has a great source of omega 3 fatty acids and potassium
Quick healthy choice. (Rolled oats would take around 15 minutes)
Will keep you full for a bit
Stay away from the flavored kinds, no good!
Greek Yogurt. Why?
Greek Yogurt (plain nonfat) is high in protein and calcium
Add your own spin to give it sweetness (add strawberries, bananas, etc)
You can Add nuts (pecans, walnuts etc) to give you that extra boost
You really can’t get any simpler than this. Cereal is pretty healthy and you can take it on the run.
Get the whole grain, high fiber cereals. Put them in a baggie and you can have it at work, etc. I usually eat mine with almond milk too. YUM! and Quick!
Breakfast Smoothie. Why?
Breakfast smoothies can go any way. My favorite has to be berry smoothies (strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, raspberries). If you already have them, all you have to do is throw them in the blender and you’re set. Add some almond milk, plain greek yogurt and some flaxseed, (sometimes ice if needed) and you have breakfast to go. It may sound like a lot but you can blend and pour this in minutes. It’s also helpful if you buy frozen fruits, and just take portions out for the morning as you need them. Depending on what you add in it, they can keep you pretty full. This is just an idea. There’s plenty of ways you can spin it according to what you have and it will take minutes.
I hope you enjoyed these quick breakfast ideas! Look forward to more tips, and let me know if you have any questions.
