Start the Day Right with a Healthy Breakfast

Many people have heard the phrase, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” But many people do not know why. In a nutshell, without breakfast the body doesn’t function at optimum level after a long night’s sleep. After sleeping for—hopefully—eight hours the brain and muscles require energy and fuel, and that’s where the most important meal of the day comes in. Foods provide that energy and fuel in the forms of dietary fiber, glucose, minerals, protein, and vitamins, just to name a few. And it’s the energy and fuel that breakfast provides that offer better concentration, more productivity, and a better mood.

With just a few healthy ingredients, you can prepare a beneficial breakfast to help start your day right. Here are some great meal suggestions:

•  Breakfast burrito made with whole wheat tortilla, egg whites, fat-free cheese, ¼ cup rinsed black beans and salsa

•  Fruit, cheese and nuts, like an apple, Cheddar cheese slices and ¼ cup walnuts

•  Homemade banana-bran muffins

•  Low-fat yogurt with fresh fruit and granola

•  Multi-grain blueberry waffles

•  Multi-grain waffles spread with peanut butter and sprinkled with raisins

•  Oatmeal or whole grain cereal with fresh fruit or raisins

•  Whole wheat toast with peanut butter, honey and banana slices

•  Scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, asparagus, and goat cheese

•  Scrambled egg with tofu

•  Smoothies

•  Spinach and tomato omelet
