Getting going in the morning can be difficult, and if you happen to be super busy, fitting in a good morning meal can seem impossible. Breakfast, however, should never be neglected. It is essential to starting your day off right, and is helpful in keeping you fit, healthy and, most of all, happy. To make your morning easier, we've collected five healthy breakfasts that are sure to get you moving.
To-Go Breakfast Burrito
Breakfast burritos are a great source of everything you need to get going in the morning. One large egg has 13 essential vitamins and minerals packed into it, and plenty of protein to get you moving. Pair one egg (or egg whites if you have cholesterol issues) with low fat cheese, tomatoes and peppers, and wrap it up in a whole wheat tortilla for a quick, on-the-go breakfast. Pair your breakfast wrap with a 100% juice beverage to get a serving of fruit in, too.
If you are really in a crunch for time, Greek yogurt is a great option. Pick up a low-fat option, but watch the sugar content. You can spice up plain Greek Yogurt with fresh berries or a banana to give it a bit of pizzazz and pack in some antioxidants. Add a high quality granola for added fiber. This quick breakfast is sure to keep you full until lunchtime rolls around.
Green smoothies have become all the rage recently, and for good reason. There are literally hundreds of different green smoothie recipes to try, and they are all chock full of minerals, vitamins and essential nutrients. You can start with a kale-based smoothie for a bit of extra pep in your step, but the sky really is the limit. Mix in your favorite frozen fruits for a cold, morning treat.
When the winter fully sets in, and you are looking for something to warm your bones before you head out, consider eating oatmeal for breakfast. To keep this breakfast super healthy, avoid pre-flavored instant oatmeal, and opt for traditional, steel-cut oats. You can jazz it up with fresh fruit, and a touch of honey or peanut butter.
Sure, most people think breakfast foods need to be sweat and light, but that's not always true. If you are looking for something with a savory flair, consider cutting up an avocado for a quick breakfast. Add avocado slices to two slices of whole wheat bread, salt and pepper to taste, and enjoy.
