Simple Healthy Breakfast

Simple healthy breakfast options don’t have to be overwhelming. Many people are stumped as to what to eat for breakfast. It seems time, energy, or even motivation become an issue when preparing for your day however, breakfast is indeed the most important meal of the day. Stabilizing your glucose with a high protein breakfast is key to ensure that you have healthy meals throughout the day.

I think the key to having a simple healthy breakfast is the breakfast is easy, and accessible. Preparing breakfast in the evening before you start your day is helpful. That way in the morning you do not need to be concerned about the time necessary to prepare. Making grab and go protein muffins or overnight oats can be helpful to accomplish your protein and time needs.

Having ready made things such as cut up fruit with almond butter packets is also another fast high protein food items to eat in the morning. Making something easy to grab in the fridge if you do not have the time to prepare. If you have more time, egg whites and veggies are a great high protein breakfast that can help stabilize blood sugar in the morning. To save time you are able to batch cook these items to have available for each breakfast during the week. A batch cook is cooking a large batch of food and then eating each individual portion as the days progress. Making a healthy breakfast doesn’t have to be complicated.

The key to having healthy breakfast is to eat high protein food an hour upon waking. This is after drinking a large glass of water upon waking. Drinking water as soon as you wake up sets the tone of water drinking for the day. Those that have difficulty drinking water, find that drinking water upon waking can be helpful. Then having a quick high protein breakfast before leaving the house for work can be helpful to starting your day nutritionally.
