Never Skip Breakfast

 When people cut out breakfast, it often backfires later in the day. Denying your hunger and skipping a meal is a bad choice especially breakfast. You’ll overeat at the next meal or worse – you’ll snack on the the easiest food available (usually an unhealthy snack). When you don’t eat enough food in the morning you will munch on snacks at night. If your body doesn’t have proper nutrition it will ‘crave’ foods and you’ll end up eating more food and if the food isn’t nutritious your body will crave even more food . However, if you satisfy your body and eat a healthy meal (full of nutritious food) you will not overeat, in fact, you’ll eat less.

Here are some high-fiber breakfast meals and some fast breakfast ideas:

Whole grain cereals: Look for those with at least 4 grams of fiber per serving. Even better are those with 8 to 10 grams.

If you like hot cereals, have oatmeal or oat bran. To boost the fiber even more, add ground flax seeds, dried currants, raisins, chopped dates or apricots, or a couple of tablespoons of mixed diced dried fruit.

Whole grain breads and toast. Add honey.

Fresh fruit: It’s a better source than juice for fiber and vitamins, but enjoy a glass of calcium-enriched orange juice, too. Excellent fruity fiber sources are fresh figs, raspberries, blackberries, apples with the peel, and oranges.

Whole grain frozen toaster waffles with honey and a dollop of yogurt.

Low-fat cottage cheese with sliced tomatoes or strawberries and whole grain crispbread.

Whole grain English muffin with salsa.
