7 Ways to Make Your Breakfast Healthier for You
We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And, starting your day the right way with a healthy breakfast containing lean protein and fiber to fuel your energy and keep you full. Protein is the building block of cells that is essential for muscle recovery, metabolic functioning, and to help you feel full for longer. It is important to break the all-night fast with the right foods that will make you feel better.
It is essential to have a healthy drink, veggies and also to eat the proper portion size. Since breakfast is the most important meal of the day, make sure you make a healthy choice and start your metabolism strong and steady. In this post, I am sharing with you my seven ways to make breakfast much healthier.
1. Start Your Day with Eggs
Start your day strong and slim with some healthy lean protein you get with eggs. Eggs will have you feeling not only amazing but also full. Combined with exercise, this small choice can help with effective metabolic functioning, muscle regrowth, and weight loss. So start your day with a dose of eggs.
2. Eliminate the Juice
Juice may taste great with its sweet goodness, but it is loaded with sugar. This is not the way you should start your day. Skip the orange juice for a piece of whole fruit. This will have less sugar and will not cause you to have a 10 am sugar crash.
3. Have a Glass of Lemon Water
To lower the bloat and rid the body of toxins have a glass of lemon water to start the day - of course, paired with your eggs of your preference (scrambled, over easy, hard boiled, egg whites). And an extra added benefit of your lemon water is the vitamin C that will help with proper iron absorption in your body.
4. Veggie up
Add some veggies to your omelet to increase the nutrients in your breakfast and start your day on a high, healthy note. I love to add spinach, kale or broccoli for green health goodness. And this is super flavorful too.
5. Make Sure You Have Lean Protein
If you are not up for eggs today, create a protein shake.As long as you have lean protein in the start of the day you are good to go. Lean protein for breakfast will help you to be satisfied and feel full for longer. Small changes add up to make a big difference. So break the fast the healthy way!
6. Practice Portion Control
Use proper portion control when eating your breakfast and enjoy every bite! Make sure to sit down and eat breakfast on a salad plate to help you feel super satisfied. The smaller the plate, the bigger the meal will look. Total mind game but it works!
7. Never Skip Breakfast
As much as you are tired, disinterested or not into eating; make sure you do not skip breakfast. This is the most important meal of the day. This is the meal that breaks your all night fast and starts your metabolic rate going. So choose a breakfast to eat to live healthily not just live to eat. So break the fast happily and healthily, this will help you to achieve your fitness and health goals. And you will feel amazing!
