Don’t have Time For Breakfast?

A lot of people skip breakfast for many reasons, whether it’s because you don’t have time, you think it’ll help you lose weight or you’re simply not a breakfast person. But the problem is that breakfast is an important part of a healthy diet, giving you the energy you need to begin the day. It plays an important part in weight management as it kick starts your metabolism each morning and therefore can help you to lose weight.

Here are some breakfast ideas to get you going and to help you get into the habit of eating in the morning.

Timing

If you find yourself rushing around every morning with breakfast being the last thing on your mind then try to make something you can either prepare the night before or quickly first thing so you can take it with you to eat at work or on the go. Adding some fruit – fresh, frozen or tinned (remember in natural juice thought not syrup!) to some yogurt and oats or other cereal can be a really quick and easy option, plus it can be easily transported if you need to eat on the go or at work.

Energy

If you are put off by breakfast because it simply doesn’t keep you full until lunch time then try and have a breakfast that is higher in protein. Try having scrambled egg on wholemeal toast or a wholemeal bagel with a little peanut butter and banana, both with keep you fuller for longer and are healthy options. Don’t forget though – it is fine to have a mid-morning snack as long as you choose wisely.

Weight loss

It is a myth that skipping breakfast will help you to lose weight by saving calories, in fact it often means you’re more likely to eat more when you do  next eat and choose less healthy foods because you’re starving. If you want to lose weight healthily breakfast is an important part of the process, you just need to eat the right foods. Try some different breakfast options such as poached eggs on whole meal muffins or porridge where you can add your own fruit and nuts to keep the taste interesting.
