Most experts agree that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but finding the time and motivation can be difficult. Various factors can lead to someone skipping breakfast. While they vary from person to person, getting a late start or family obligations is the most commonplace.
Leaving the house with a breakfast sized hole in your stomach can easily lead the temptation to consume a buttery croissant or delve into something greasy. Let’s be honest, only the strongest of individuals can resist these temptations.
My willpower isn’t always the strongest, as I’ve succumbed to the devilishly delectable delights that always glint at one throughout their journeys to work or to school. However, I’ve found my personal savior comes in the form of Lizi’s granola. It has a different array of nuts in every different bag which provided some much needed crunch to your breakfast bowl. Let’s consider a few options that can help you along, starting with granola.
Granola allows me to have my daily dose of calcium. Sometimes I combine it with yogurt to get my calcium hit instead of milk. Adding granola to your morning cup of fruit is also a tasty an ideal combination.
The many different granola options available mean that whatever your dietary requirements are there’s an option to satisfy your taste buds. Energy from the granola is released slowly and will help you manage your hunger pains throughout the day.
Hot options that can also be synonymous with a healthy breakfast; a poached or scrambled egg on toast provides a delicious protein filled option to healthy cereal and really sets you up for the day. Eggs are full of vitamins and minerals that aid brain activity and muscle mass – perfect for the health conscious individual.
Another great hot breakfast option is the perennial classic: oatmeal. This is another great slow release breakfast that is guaranteed to keep you full of energy and with a full stomach until lunch time. I love to slice banana and add blueberries to ensure that I have my daily dose of fruit. Oatmeal is perfect for those that are lactose intolerant and people who suffer from diabetes or other sugar problems.
Overall, I would say that a healthy breakfast certainly has the potential to be tasty as well as nutritious, but it just takes a little more care and thought when it comes to the preparation and deciding what will be the best option for you.
So there you go my fellow breakfast eaters, go forth and gorge yourselves on a tasty nutritious breakfast that will allow you to not only enjoy the first meal of the day but set your taste buds alight as well.
