6 Ways to Fit in a Quick and Nutritious Breakfast

The morning is a difficult time. The alarm goes off, and it takes an army of effort just to peel yourself out of bed. Your mind is foggy. Your limbs feel like Jello. And all you want to do is crawl back into bed. Who has time to think about breakfast?

What if we told you that breakfast can actually make all of those feelings of tiredness go away? It’s true what they say: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Of course, that also depends on what you are eating. With so little time in the morning, how do you get a nutritious breakfast that is also quick to pull together? Here are 5 ways to get that quick, nutritious boost of energy in the morning.

Protein will keep you full all day

Protein takes longer for the body to break down, so it keeps you full longer. It will also keep you energized throughout the day. Boil up some hard-boiled eggs at the beginning of the week that you can have every morning. Have a bowl of yogurt in the morning before work. Eating any type of high-protein breakfast will keep your energy levels up and stop you from reaching for that bag of chips later in the day.

Avoid the bad sugar

Before you reach for that Poptart, think about whether it’s really helping or hurting you. Processed sugars can give you a quick jolt of energy, but they often lead to sugar crashes, and do nothing for the overall health of your body. If you are looking for that blast of sugar energy, try a more natural and healthy sugar substitute. Bananas are an excellent way to get a boost of healthy energy. Add some natural honey to your toast. Any kind of fruit is a good way to start the day with a nutritious kick of energy.
