There are so many reasons for not being lazy about breakfast. They say that there’s no healthy lifestyle without it, and that it’s the most important meal of the day. I have to say I agree a 100%. I’ve lived without it for quite some time, and can say from my own experience that it makes a world of difference. If you want to be really sure about it, try eating breakfast for two weeks and then skipping it from time to time. You’ll see the negative effect this has on your body, and won’t make the same mistake ever again.
To get the most out of breakfast, you can’t eat the first thing you come across after you stumble out of your bed. It requires doing some research and preparing things in advance. But don’t worry, it’s really not that hard. Here are the healthiest breakfast foods that are also very easy to make.
Eggs are among the most popular breakfast foods, which is why people think that you can’t go wrong by eating them. Unfortunately, there are less healthy ways to prepare your eggs, such as scrambling them. Poaching your eggs, on the other hand, is considered to be the healthiest way of preparing them. The process is quite simple. You’ll have to fill a saucepan with water, bring it to a boil, and crack the eggs in. After only a couple of minutes of simmering, your eggs will be perfectly done.
Making a smoothie out of fruit or vegetables is one of the healthiest ways of preparing that type of food, since cooking, baking and frying tend to destroy all the good stuff. So instead of stirring your veggies into an omelet or baking the fruit along with your muffins or energy bars, consider simply blending them with some milk or yoghurt. Of course, to get the best out of the ingredients, you’ll have to use a good smoothie maker, such as one of these: http://smoothiemakerguru.com/. But believe me, it’ll be all worth it.
Oatmeal with dried fruit
This requires no preparation, at least not unless you wish to dry your own fruit. I’ve done that a couple of times, and it really tastes better, but it’s probably too much of a hassle for us working people. Another alternative to getting dried fruit from a store is buying it on one of the local markets. They sell products that tend to be of a higher quality than the store-bought stuff. In any case, mixing your oatmeal with some dry berries and a glass of Greek yoghurt will fill your belly and prepare you for the long day that’s waiting ahead.
Although it’s not a complete breakfast, it’s awfully healthy. I buy my grapefruits as the local market and squeeze them almost every morning. Their bitterness makes my mouth tingle, but the aftertaste is just great. I almost never add sugar to the juice, but you can do it if you simply can’t bear the taste.
