We have all heard it for years - Breakfast is the most important meal of the day! Eating a nutritious breakfast with fruits and vegetables helps maintain blood sugar levels, prevents binge eating and sets the tone for a healthy day of eating.
Short on time in the morning? Don't let that stop you from starting your day off the right way!
Here are some great quick tips:
1. Get a head start! Getting up 10 minutes earlier or planning out your breakfast the night before can help you get a nutritious "on-the-go" breakfast
2. Add fruits and veggies! Cut up fruits and veggies you can toss into an omelet, oatmeal, or whole grain cereal the next morning.
3. Make a smoothie! Blend some fruit, yogurt, almond milk and kale for a green power smoothie to-go!
4. The key to a healthy lifestyle is PLANNING! Try to plan out your meals throughout the day starting with breakfast. This may help you control your calorie intake. (Kale Brownie Points if you are able to plan a whole week's menu on Sunday!)
