5 Tips To Make Your Breakfast Healthier

By making small changes, you can make your breakfast healthier and worth waking up to.  A healthy, well balanced breakfast helps fuel your body for the day ahead.  


I have detailed my 5 tips below;

1. Add protein - Having a serving of protein in the morning can help you power through the morning. Not only does protein help keep you satisfied, it will also help you feel more energised throughout the day. Eggs are a great choice for breakfast protein, as you can cook them in different ways. Although most of us like our eggs fried, a healthier recommendation would be to have them poached or boiled.

2. Include healthy fats - When you include healthy fats in your breakfast, it can help your body absorb vitamins and may keep you feel satisfied for longer. Healthy fats can also help to build cell membranes, prevent inflammation and some fat types also help with hormone regulation. To add healthy fats to your breakfast, try adding some avocado to your toast, or include nuts and seeds with your smoothie bowl. 

3. Skip processed food - While snack bars and pastries might be a faster breakfast fix, they aren’t exactly the best for you as they tend to be highly processed and much of the nutritional value has been removed. Not only can this leave you feeling hungry again soon after eating, but processed foods can also affect your mood as they spike blood sugar levels. Preparing your breakfast, the night before can help if you struggle with time in the morning.  

4. Eat fruit instead of juices – It takes 3-4 oranges to make a glass of orange juice. Would you eat that many oranges in one go? Opting for a piece of fruit instead means you will get a serve of fibre, which helps lower cholesterol levels and it makes you feel full longer. Try adding fresh or frozen berries to your smoothie or top your oats with fruit slices. If you can’t pass up a glass of juice, you can try switching to vegetable-based juices that use less fruit. 

5. Prepare the night before – If you’re time poor, preparing as much as you can the night before can really help. Chia seed pudding is a great option, ham and carrot frittata, yogurt with fruit or a shake. You can prepare the ingredients for a shake from the night before, store it in the fridge and blend it with water or milk in the morning.
