How to Eat a Healthy Breakfast With a Busy Lifestyle

So many of us lead extremely busy and stressful lives. We have work, have activities after work, plans on the weekend, and end up running from place to place, without much thought of eating healthy. Many people think that skipping breakfast saves time.

It doesn't have to be difficult to create healthy snacks that you can eat quickly. It has been said thousands of times, but breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. Most of us spend around eight hours sleeping. During the time you are sleeping, you are not eating or drinking. When you get out of bed in the morning, your blood sugar is very low and you most likely do not have a lot of energy.

Eating breakfast is one of the most important things you can do to lose weight. If you tend to skip breakfast, you may already know that you snack more often and eat a lot of high calorie foods. Breakfast can curb your appetite and help you to make more sensible choices later on in the day.

Here are some quick and healthy ideas for breakfast:

o Have some whole wheat toast or a bagel with peanut butter;
o Eat toaster waffles with low calorie syrup;
o Have a wrap - you can scramble some eggs add a little cheese and salsa and eat it on the go;
o Any healthy variety of cold cereal;
o Whole egg or egg white omelet with frozen vegetables;
o Smoothie - yogurt and fruit in the blender with a small amount of skim milk.
o Protein shake.
o Bake some low calorie muffins ahead of time and have them ready to go, in a container on the counter.

It is never a good idea to hit a drive through in the morning. Many of the menu options are extremely full of empty calories. Most of these items are small, so people order two of them, doubling the amount of their calorie laden meal.

All you really need is about 15 minutes to eat breakfast. Whether you are eating at home or on the go, there really is no limit to the variety of foods you can eat. The most important thing is that you do eat breakfast, so you can make better choices throughout the day. You'll be thankful that you did. Breakfast will reduce your tendency to binge on high calorie foods and eat a huge, high calorie lunch later on.
