Why a Healthy Breakfast Is Important

One Healthy Decision Leads to Another

Start your day healthy and you're off to a great start. I'm all about eating a nutritious breakfast because it gives me energy all morning, and puts me in a happy mood. Although a Nutri-Grain bar wouldn't be my first choice — oatmeal, a veggie frittata, or Greek yogurt provides more fiber and protein — I completely agree that one good decision can lead to another.

Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day, so tell me, what's your healthy breakfast of choice?

I used to eat about 4 NutriGrain bars for breakfast when I was in high school because my mom used to stock up on them. Sooooo, yeah, not really "healthy". I usually opt for oatmeal, an apple/orange/berries, a cup of coffee, and a light nonfat yogurt.

I usually make a protein pancake- 1/2 cup egg whites, 1 scoop protein powder, a splash of milk, and an optional 2 tsp. of fiber powder. Usually I top it off with 1 tblsp of peanut butter

I defiantly agree with this! Plus if you start out healthy it's okay to have a cheat snack. I just recently bought smart one fiber poptarts (unless you put them in the toaster, they are little blah) so I eat them. Or I try to eat raisins with some kind of fruit and lemon water. In class (it starts at 8 am) someone was eating yummy looking oatmeal so it made me want to start eating that, or home made parfaits (but skimping on the oats, I can't remember the name of them right now, because they can be high in calories).

I used to eat the same thing for breakfast every day - a bowl of porridge, made with rice milk, almond butter, and chopped dried fruit. However, I've developed terrible stomach problems in the last year or so, and ironically my "healthier" breakfast choices have been making my health worse! Oats and whole wheat aggravate my condition, so recently I've been rotating three different breakfasts: either 3 homemade gluten-free savoury muffins (I very finely chop carrots and celery in the food processor and add them to the muffin mix, along with dried mixed herbs -- really yummy!), or 2 pieces of gluten-free toast with fruit preserves, or natural yoghurt and hot stewed fruit. I tend to get up on the late side these days anyway (I'm doing post-grad and find that I work better in the afternoons and evenings, so I don't usually have breakfast until about nine) and any of those options usually holds me over pretty well until lunch.
