There is an abundance of research out there in support of starting the day with a proper brekkie. Eating a well balanced breakfast will help to keep blood sugar levels even – resulting in more consistent energy, improved mood and better cognitive performance. Research has also suggested it aids in weight loss.
Unfortunately though, so many of the standard breakfast options (white toast & jam, cereal … we’re looking at you!) are laden with sugar and refined carbohydrates. The good news is there are so many great ways to increase the nourishment you get from your first meal of the day … like sneaking in some veg, opting for complex carbohydrates, and adding fresh, antioxidant-rich fruits.
Planning ahead is key. That way even if you can’t find your keys, the kids sleep in, and you have to pull out the iron at the last minute – you won’t be forced to make those rushed, not-so-healthy decisions (like a bacon & egg roll from the cafe) on the way to work.
These 3 breakfasts can be made ahead of time and tick all boxes – healthy, tasty, and easy to prepare.
