Breakfast Ideas

Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day because it not only jump-starts your metabolism, but it also sets the tone for healthy eating throughout the day. There’s nothing worse than sitting through a meeting or class with a rumbling, hungry tummy. One of the biggest mistakes you can make is not eating breakfast. By doing this, you risk overeating throughout the day, making poor decisions and letting “hanger” sink in.

So what should you eat for your first meal of the day? A healthy combination of carbs + fiber + protein. This combo will fuel you for the morning, keep you fuller longer and help get things moving in your digestive system. Try to avoid foods high in sugar, like cereal or baked goods (store-bought), and make smart decisions by choosing whole grains and natural foods over processed foods. If you’re a picky eater, no worries! You’ve got choices. Think of oatmeal + nut butter, a slice of frittata or a protein-packed green smoothie.

My breakfast almost always includes some variety of milk from a carton. My personal favorite is vanilla unsweetened almond milk, but I frequent cow, soy and coconut milk as well. Milk is the perfect ingredient to add to any breakfast to amp up the protein, creaminess and flavor!
