Morning Hack: Quick and Nutritious Breakfast Ideas

The next time you rush out your door and skip breakfast, you may want to pull a U-turn and hasten back to your kitchen. Eating a wholesome breakfast is one of the best things you can do for your body.

In fact, according to eatingwell.com, regular breakfast eaters tend to be leaner and are more successful at losing weight and keeping it off. Past the aesthetics, a good breakfast fuels you up and gets you ready for the day.

A nourishing breakfast should consist of whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and a lean protein such as eggs; this will help maintain blood sugar levels and prevent binge eating.

But, if you are anything like me and barely have enough time to even open your eyes in the morning, then here is a list of quick and nutritious breakfast ideas to accommodate busy schedules:

  • Plan ‘on-the-go’ breakfast the night before. Cut up vegetables so that you can just toss into an omelet the next morning.

As my mom always says, eat breakfast like a queen, lunch like a princess, and dine like a college student.
