Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, correct? However, if given the chance to sleep in an extra five minutes, or get up and have breakfast, which would you choose? I for one would choose the sleep, and will gladly take a to-go cup, fill it with coffee and head off to work. That isn't the healthiest way though to start the day, and eventually, by mid-day I begin to feel woozy, hungry and wish I had a proper meal in the morning. In an effort not to give up those 10 precious minutes of extra sleep, I decided to compose a list of healthy breakfast ideas and breakfast smoothies, that also can be done quite fast.
before scrolling through the ideas just bear in mind that whatever breakfast you decide to choose, whether from this list or not it has to include one or more of these complements:
Whole grains as whole-grain rolls and bagels, hot or cold whole-grain cereals, all sorts of whole wheat bakery goods
Lean protein as eggs, lean meat, legumes, and nuts.
Low-fat dairy as milk, plain or low-sugar yogurts, and low-fat cheeses, such as cottage cheese and natural cheeses.
Fruits and vegetables as fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables, 100 percent juice drinks without added sugar, and fruit and vegetable smoothies.
