Looking for a fast way to start your day on track? Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day, as the saying goes, because it’s what will jump-start your metabolism and give you energy to get your day off to a good start.
Those who skip breakfast often end up turning to ‘quick fix’ foods mid-morning such as donuts or chocolate bars to get their blood sugar levels up. If you eat a well-balanced breakfast however, it’ll be smooth sailing until lunch.
Let’s look at a few of the top breakfast choices to help you get your day off to a good start.
Oatmeal With Protein & Peanut Butter
One fast and very easy option to start your day off well is to go for a cooked bowl of oatmeal with a scoop of protein powder stirred in. Mix in some peanut butter, natural almond butter, or some chopped nuts for your healthy fats and add a few berries on top for flavor.
It’ll be a very well balanced meal that takes about three minutes to prepare.
Greek Yogurt Parfait
Consider whipping up a Greek yogurt parfait. Since most people aren’t getting their three servings of dairy products in, this is definitely a good choice. Place some Greek yogurt into a bowl and then top with fresh berries along with flaxseeds or slivered almonds for your healthy fats.
This breakfast will come in around 250-300 calories, so is an easy add regardless of what your calorie intake is.
Scrambled Egg And Fruit
Another good breakfast meal is scrambled egg whites with diced vegetables, prepared in a bit of olive oil. Top that with salsa, which also adds extra fiber to the meal and then serve some fruit on the side for carbs and antioxidants.
Scrambled eggs are a very high quality source of protein and one that you should consider adding on a daily basis.
Finally, if you have a bit more time, consider whipping up a protein pancake. Mix together some raw oats, egg whites, along with a half scoop of protein powder and then pour onto a skillet like you would a regular pancake.
Flip at halftime and then top with some natural peanut butter and half a sliced banana.
So consider any of these breakfast dishes to help you reach your nutritional goals and start the day with energy to spare.
