Healthy Breakfast Ideas

It’s been said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. With this, it is as only as important as what we decide to eat for breakfast. You need to eat something healthy so that you will not be hungry half way through the morning. Eat something filling enough that will last you till lunch time.

The most common breakfast food has to be cold cereal. When choosing a cereal, be sure not to get one that has a lot of sugar and is high in fat.

Adding low fat milk and some sort of fruit to this will make it even healthier. Putting bananas in you cereal is delicious and healthy. Also adding some eggs or peanut butter with toast will add some good protein to your meal.

Eggs cooked without a lot of fat can also be healthy breakfast foods. You should combine them with something that has fiber, like whole grain toast, and you should add some fruit or vegetables and some dairy.

A nice omelet with vegetables and low fat cheese along with a piece of fruit would work out well. The protein in eggs and peanut butter is very filling, and so is the fiber in whole grain toast. For those without a lot of time in the morning, you could make hard boiled eggs ahead of time so you don’t have to cook in the morning.

If you are like me and can’t eat a lot right when you get up, try eating something small and then eat something for brunch.

One option for a take along breakfast is instant oatmeal. Instant oatmeal packets are very portable, and you just need to add hot water, which you can get in most offices. You can bring a packet along with a piece of fruit and a handful of nuts.

With people always in a hurry there are many choices for those on the run at your local grocery store. When grabbing something, make sure that is healthy. Make sure that is has the ingredients to keep you full till you have time to eat again.

Finding the right breakfast foods can be difficult, in particular when your looking for a healthy breakfast. Here are some simple tips to follow to get a total, reasonable breakfast.

Kellogg’s® Eggo Bake Shop™ Mini Muffin Tops

eggo1Another great breakfast item to have in your house are the Kellogg’s® Eggo Bake Shop™ Mini Muffin Tops. We tried the blueberry variety, and it was a hit in my house. My kids literally could not shove these into their mouths fast enough.  They are super easy to make — literally pop into the microwave for about 12 seconds or pop into the toaster.  Each sheet gives you 4 mini muffing tops (which are the best part of the muffin!).

This is another great on the go breakfast.  They aren’t messy and are super good.  It is an easy way to get your kids to eat breakfast, and they won’t even realize it is good for them!
