If you’ve gotten into the habit of skipping breakfast or eating less than ideal breakfast meals on a regular basis, you might be surprised what eating a consistently healthy breakfast could do for you throughout the day.
When people eat a hearty and healthy breakfast, they often have less cravings during the day, have more energy throughout the day, and feel more centered as they start the day ahead. So if these are improvements that you’d like to see reflected in your day, here are three ways to consistently eat a healthy breakfast.
Know The Basics To Include
While there are a lot of different things that you could eat that would constitute a healthy breakfast, they all are going to have a few things in common.
Generally, if you’re wanting to eat something healthy for breakfast, you should include things like whole grains, lean protein, low-fat dairy, and fruits and veggies. Any combination of foods that contain these things are going to be healthy for you to eat and a great way for you to start off your day.
If you’re not currently eating foods that contain these things when you make yourself breakfast, or when breakfast gets made for you at your assisted living facility, consider how you can make some changes to include these things.
Think Outside The Breakfast Box
When you think about breakfast foods, people most often think about things like cereal, pancakes, waffles, and bagels. And while you can eat things like this, breakfast can go so much beyond these types of traditional breakfast foods.
Instead of getting stuck in a rut with the foods that you make and eat for breakfast, consider how you can incorporate foods that might be less traditionally associated with breakfast. Especially when it comes to vegetables, you can and should be adding foods like this to more of your breakfast meals.
Batch Bake For Best Results
One of people’s biggest issues with eating a healthy breakfast is that it can often take time that they’d rather spend sleeping or getting ready for their day in other ways. But luckily, you can make eating a healthy breakfast very easy for yourself through batch baking.
If you’re making things like whole-grain pancakes, smoothies, muffins, quiches and more, you can make more than one serving for yourself and eat them throughout the week. This way, you can have healthy breakfast foods to eat without having to remake food each morning. This can save you a lot of time and hassle when you’re just trying to get out the door on a busy morning.
If you’re wanting to eat more consistent healthy breakfasts, consider using the tips mentioned above to help you accomplish this.
