4 Better Breakfast Ideas
There’s good, then there’s better. You know that starting the day with breakfast is good for you and your family. But you may want to reconsider that donut with the glaze on top. No doubt that donut tastes good but kicking off your day with unhealthy fats, added sugars and refined carbohydrates will cause your blood sugar to rise, drain your energy and will tell your body to store fat. That is one morning mishap that is better to avoid.
A better breakfast can actually help you to keep your girlish figure. It helped me to get mine back. Having lost 100 pounds recently I found out first hand what studies have told us. Healthy breakfast eaters tend to control their weight better. Both adults and kids have better concentration and are more productive during the day when they start off with a healthy breakfast. Fiber, lean protein, low fat dairy, fruits and vegetables are great components in a healthy breakfast.
In honor of National Better Breakfast Month here are 4 breakfast solutions that are better for you.
Toast to it
Toasting your choice of whole wheat bagel, toast, waffle or muffin with a topping of low fat cream cheese or peanut butter and your choice of sliced fruit such as apples or strawberries is a great way to start your day.
Some like it hot
Starting your day with a satisfying hot breakfast can be quick and easy. It can also be the most nutritious choice when you go with steel cut oatmeal. You can even have instant . Top with ground flaxseed or fruit.
Lean protein can help kick you into high gear. Try an egg white omelet loaded with your favorite vegetables and even a piece of turkey bacon. If you are on the go a soy protein powder shakes made with soy or skim milk and fruit can also be a great option.
Good bone health and a strong immune system are just a few of the health benefits of milk. Enjoy skim milk alone or even better with your favorite high fiber cereal.
