Breakfast for Champions

healthy breakfastHot nutritious breakfasts can boost your energy and improve your health.   You have probably heard it a million times – breakfast is the most important meal of the day.   A healthy morning meal can reduce cravings and curb overeating throughout the day and into the evening.  What you eat in the morning can make all the difference.

Avoid sugary cereals, bagels that are not 100% whole grain, and baked goods. These are all refined carbohydrates that are stripped of nutrients. Get true nourishment in your morning meal with a hot breakfast that combines protein and whole food carbohydrates like vegetables, fruit and 100% whole grains.

Steel-cut oats with walnuts and berries, a baked sweet potato with peanut butter or a whole grain wrap with eggs and sautéed vegetables are all good choices.  Believe it or not – dinner for breakfast can be a good option.  Leftover vegetable/chicken stir fry with some beans and brown rice or lentil soup can make great breakfasts that are far more satisfying and nutritious than that sugary cereal or donut.
