Are you looking to kick start your mornings and put yourself into overdrive so you can have a more productive day? If so, then try these super foods for breakfast, alternating them according to taste to give yourself some variety, and see what a difference they make for you.
Nothing gives you a faster, better pick-me-up in the mornings than a big glass of OJ. With or without pulp, doesn’t matter, but that shot of sugary goodness and vitamin C first thing in the morning will send you off to start your day in rocket propelled fashion. Add at least one glass of orange juice to your daily breakfast routine, but if you love the stuff, don’t stop at just one.
I know, I know, it sounds boring and dull, but oatmeal has all the good stuff your body needs in it to see you off to a great start. It’s okay to add a little sugar or honey to the mix, at your preference, but go easy on it. You might think sugar is a great way to start the day, but nothing crashes faster than blood sugar. You’ll have 1-2 hours tops, then you’ll start crashing and lose more than you gained. If you’re drinking the orange juice from above, that should be all the sugar you need.
Fruit and Cheese
Half an apple and 1% cottage cheese will do wonders for you and may fill that craving your sweet tooth is bothering you with.
Filled with calcium and protein, these will leave you feeling fuller, longer. They have the added benefit of being sold in convenient packaging and come in a wide variety of flavors, so there’s something for everyone here.
Especially if you’re trying to shed a few unwanted pounds, grapefruit can be a fantastic start to your day. If you need to sweeten it up a bit, steer clear of the sugar but help yourself to a strategic dash of honey. If you’re not a fan of the native taste of the fruit, that does wonders to make it more palatable.
What’s old is new again. Eggs spent a number of years out of favor for being high in cholesterol, but now, they’re once again the darlings of the medical community, being a high source of protein and vitamin D. If you use an egg substitute, you can get around the fact that one yolk contains about sixty percent of your daily cholesterol limits. But you’d be crazy to do that – a free range egg actually helps reduce cholesterol, according to some research
