It’s Time for Breakfast!Posted: March 17, 2011
Are you too busy for breakfast? Do you think you can jumpstart your weight loss by skipping breakfast? Think again!
Who ever said, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day,” wasn’t joking. Starting your day off with a tasty and nutritious meal gives you the edge you need to stay focused throughout the day. Without breakfast, your body is being deprived of the energy and nutrients it desperately needs after a night’s sleep. A healthy and balanced breakfast is easy to prepare and can often be eaten on the go. If you are worried about your weight, breakfast can be an excellent tool. A nutritious breakfast that includes at least one serving of fruit and whole grains can help you get some of the nutrients and fiber your body needs to be healthy.
Breakfast options are limitless. Some good choices include: whole grain cereal, a banana and skim milk; or a whole-wheat bagel topped with peanut butter and apple slices; or a bowl of oatmeal with skim milk and dried fruit. You can also try an egg white sandwich on a whole grain English muffin with light cheese and lots of vegetables. Eating healthy and making time for breakfast is easier than you think.
