Healthy breakfast foods are very important to start your day off right. Yes, I know that the box of sugary cereal might look tempting in the mornings, but it is not worth it! Eating a poor breakfast will leave you hungry later in the morning, because your body will not be getting the nutrition that it needs.

oatmeal

One of the best breakfast foods is oatmeal. This whole grain food contains 5 grams of protein in ½ cup of dry oatmeal, and it is a great source of fiber. Eating fiber in the morning can help to reduce your chances of serious diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and strokes.

Try experimenting with different ways to prepare your oatmeal in the morning. Some people like to flavor it with a little bit of cinnamon and raisins, try adding in chopped fruit and some walnuts, or you can even stir in a little bit of plain yogurt and a dollup of raw honey for a creamy treat.

Another great breakfast food is whole grain toast and almond butter, served with a bowl of fresh fruit. This breakfast will give you a good source of whole grains, protein and the nutrients in the fresh fruit. It is a great way to start out the day!

My favorite breakfast is a morning smoothie. I often blend together fresh fruits for a sweet drink, you can even add in a few handfuls of greens such as spinach or kale. Adding in the vegetables helps to increase the nutrition levels, it is a great way to get your greens without having to drench them in salad dressing.

There are lots of options for healthy breakfast foods, it is a good idea to keep these foods available so that you always have something good to start out the morning. Remember that breakfast is the most important meal of the day because it sets you up for a day of healthy eating, so it is important to start the day out right!

      It is great in winter! Don't think I'd feel like it on a summer morning though!

      I don't like porridge, but my partner does. So in the mornings, he has blueberries yoghurt and porridge- and I have the same but with muesli.
      In the winter when blueberries are out of season we use frozen, thawed in the microwave which means they are nice and warm, great for cold weather. And when they are in season, fresh and straight out of the fridge!

      I am not a fan of porridge! - my boyfriend is though! I like to stick to a bowl of cornflakes or two pieces of toast with marmite/vegemite on it. Keeping it simple is the way ;). I understand the importance of breakfast and I try my BEST to eat at least something in the morning

        There's two of us with porridge eating men then Bernadette! Just checking, I think porridge is the same as oatmeal - I think oatmeal is the american word? Does everyone else agree?
