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!

  • I try to mix it up a bit, though most mornings I'm in a hurry so I have a banana smoothie with strawberry yoghurt and soy milk in it.
    I often have porridge also and don't feel too guilty about putting brown sugar on top. A little each day isn't going to outweigh the benefits of the actual porridge, its better than no breakfast and many packet cereals.
    This is how I make it in a hurry:
    1/3 cup oats
    2/3 cup water
    1 min on high in the microwave, sprinkle with brown sugar and light milk.
    This is how I make it creamier and if I'm super hungry:
    1/2 cup oats
    2 Tbsp sultanas or any dried fruit
    1/2 cup milk
    1/2 cup water
    1-2 mins in the microwave, maybe more but stir each minute and watch for overflows the whole time!
    Pour over milk, sprinkle with brown sugar or sliced banana....yum.

    Multigrain toast made from the bread maker bread with marmite on top is also one of my favourites.

    Instant oatmeal with crowned with a thick coating of dark brown muscovado sugar, and lashings of thick running cream , on a frosty morning - this is THE wickedest, most decadent winter dessert breakfast! The rest of your day will be sooooo sweet!
