September is better breakfast month – we would like to celebrate with you by sharing some healthy breakfast tips and 7 healthy breakfast ideas. Let’s make it our goal this September to give our breakfast routine a makeover!
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day – not only does it give you energy for the day but your breakfast choice sets your intention for the day. If you start your day off with a doughnut, you are more likely to continue to make less than healthy food choices throughout the day. Let me clarify, doughnuts are OK on occasion, but they definitely shouldn’t be an everyday thing.
Three components that make up a healthy breakfast are; carbohydrates, healthy fats, and protein. Having the right balance of these three things in your breakfast meal is crucial. Protein is important because it helps keep you fuller for longer. Some good protein sources that can be eaten at breakfast are Greek yogurt, eggs, and cottage cheese. Healthy fats slow the absorption of glucose in the bloodstream; this will help avoid major insulin spikes which can cause many undesirable outcomes. Some healthy fats that are good to include in your breakfast are; avocado, olive oil, egg yolks, coconut oil, nuts and seeds, or coconut milk.
Eating a breakfast that contains both healthy fats and protein will do the following things for your body:
Carbs get a bad rep due to modern fad diets - but eating the right types of carbs at breakfast is the best way to stay full and energized throughout the day. Complex carbs such as whole grains, legumes, and nuts are high in fiber and broken down slowly in the body – these are the carbs that will provide you with long-lasting energy.
Here are 7 healthy breakfasts you should try this month:
