What To Eat For Breakfast

What is your favorite power breakfast? Or, do you skip breakfast? Many do. make it a goal to have a healthy breakfast each day!

Eat well, Live well

People who skip breakfast tend to weigh more than those who eat breakfast. It’s important to eat a breakfast that is rich in protein, fiber, and complex carbohydrates. Protein and fiber help slow digestion to keep you full until your next meal.

Eggs, milk, yogurt, nut butters, and seeds are all good examples of protein filled foods. Fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds are loaded with fibers. Eating a breakfast burrito with eggs, cheese and veggies is an excellent choice. Also, eating at least one serving of fruit or vegetables at breakfast is a good way to start the day!

Remember to keep in mind that sugary cereals and sweet rolls will leave you feeling hungry by mid-morning.. so aim for a protein-fiber packed meal to keep you going!
