10 Tips for a Healthy Breakfast

  1. Bring some life to your morning cereal by adding fresh, frozen, dried or canned fruit pieces. When buying frozen or prepared fruits, the healthier choice would be fruits without added sugar.
  2. If you are in need of protein, add some mushrooms and/or spinach to your morning omelet.
  3. “I’m too busy to eat breakfast.” You hear it all the time, and maybe you’ve even said it. But there is a way to make time for breakfast. You just have to make the time. And it’s easy to do. You just have to sort of fool yourself into it by getting into the habit. The first time, don’t worry about having some big, prepared breakfast; just grab a piece of fruit or toast. Keep doing that every day. It’s better than having no breakfast at all, and eventually you’ll get used to it and your body will get used to it. You’ll be fooling your own body and mind into having time for breakfast. Eventually you might even have time for a whole bowl of oatmeal. Oh boy!
  4. Create a breakfast salad on-the-go. Core out the center of an apple, then fill it with a little peanut butter and maybe some raisins, nuts or berries.
  5. If you are a coffee drinker, keep to the plain, black stuff. It’s true coffee has few calories, but that Super Malto Giganto Caramel Extreme Latte with sprinkles and cream is full of fat, calories and sugar.
  6. If you are on the go and need a quick, healthy breakfast, keep in mind a small bowl of fruit. Even many fastfood restaurants will have a bowl of apple slices with berries on their menu.
  7. Keeping your health and your breakfast in mind while shopping can help a lot. Try the low-fat items. Low-fat cottage cheese tastes just as good as the regular, and low-fat yogurts are often loaded down with fruits. And skim milk can be used for cereals even if you don’t care much for the taste.
  8. If you like toast, try using a multi-grain breads instead of that heavy white bread you grew up with.
  9. Can’t live without your eggs? Try using just the egg whites. You’ll cut down on your cholesterol.
  10. For the adventurous, make your own cereal. That’s right! Health food stores and specialty grocery stores, and often the bulk sections in you usual grocery store, have everything you need for making your own, healthy breakfast cereal. Get a bag of dried fruit, your favorite nuts, seeds, oats, millet and mix it all up. You can add yogurt after the mixing, and keep everything stored in a container ready to go for the next morning.
