We all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Even so, when the decision is between extra time in bed and a good meal, most of us choose bed! If you don’t eat a healthy breakfast, you set off on the wrong footing. Your brain function will be slower. And, by mid-morning, you’ll be thinking only of your grumbling stomach. The goods new is, there’s a way to ensure you get a good breakfast, and extra time in bed! Quick breakfast ideas are all that stand between you and the right start to your day. Here are a few ideas to get you started.
Fruit is one of the best things you can eat for breakfast. It also takes no preparation. Stock up on some good quality fruit that will last. To save yourself having the same thing each day, buy a good variety. That way your breakfast experience will stay interesting. Bear in mind that some fruit takes longer to prepare. You can grab a banana with no planning, but pineapple needs preparation. If time is of the essence, cut up your fruit selection beforehand. Keep it in an airtight container for freshness.
Pancakes may not be as easy as fruit, but there’s not much to them. These are a basic that any chef should be able to prepare. Familiarize yourself with quick pancake recipes that you can turn to in your hours of need. They may not have the nutritional value fruit does, but they’ll keep you going for longer. If you want to keep your breakfast healthy, incorporate fruit, too. Pancakes with banana slices or blueberries can taste amazing! There’s no denying pancakes are better fresh. But, if you don’t think you’ll have time in the morning, you could prepare these beforehand. Again, turn to your trusted airtight container to keep them fresh!
Breakfast doesn’t get much quicker than cereal. Stock up on a few boxes of your favorite. You can turn to them when you’re struggling for time. Be aware that many cereals contain a lot of sugar. Do your research to discover which options are healthiest. Sugar content and nutritional value are always displayed on the box. Take a look before you buy to ensure you’re getting everything you need. A small amount of sugar in the morning isn’t a bad thing because it gives you a boost. But, you won’t want to eat something that tastes like dessert first thing in the morning. Not only will it be bad for you, but it’ll also be a shock to the system! And, don’t forget that you can add fruit to your cereal, too. Then, your healthy cereal will be even better for you!
So, there you have it. Three quick ways to get breakfast right. You can make these options as healthy, or indulgent as you want. Either way, they’ll get you into the habit of eating in the morning. And, that’s got to be a good thing, right?
