Nothing beats a good healthy breakfast for helping us stay energized and curb those urges to snack or overeat later in the day. But in our rushed lives, it’s easy to rush past breakfast. Fortunately, there are ways to start a busy day off right, even for those with time constraints. Just think outside the cereal box!
Here are 3 easy healthy breakfast ideas:
- Start with light foods if you have very little appetite in the morning. Apple slices dipped in peanut butter is a good option. Add other foods gradually to build your appetite.
- Indulge in non-traditional foods, such as leftover vegetarian pizza. The protein in the cheese will help prevent those sharp peaks in blood sugar levels that make you crave a sugary snack later in the morning.
- Keep Ensure® on hand to optimize the nutrition in your healthy breakfast. For example, you can whizz it into your fruit smoothie for added protein and calcium. You barely have time to gulp down a cup of coffee before heading out the door? No problem! Replace your usual milk with a splash of Ensure® to provide extra nutrients with your caffeine hit.
