Nutritional Idea, Eat Breakfast

We all are trying to eat better and become more healthy. I do have a degree in Nutrition and this is something every one can do to help them feel better and have more energy.

Your mom had it right, back in the day! Eat Breakfast. Yes it is that simple. We all know we need to eat breakfast. We all want our kids to eat their breakfast, the same goes for the adults in the house.

If you eat a high fiber cereal, or eat higher fiber bread. You will feel full longer and you will have more energy to get through the morning until lunch.

We all get busy and go about our days, next thing we know it is three in the afternoon, and we are starving and just realize that we did not eat anything all day. This is really a typical day in my life. This is even something I have to work on! What is bad is I know better, with education to back it up.

Toast with peanut butter or hazelnut spread, bagels, even a bowl of oatmeal will give you the energy you need to get through the morning. Boil up some hard cooked eggs in the evening and you can have a hard cooked egg and toast. By the time the toast is toasted in the toaster, you can have an egg or two peeled and add a glass of juice or glass of milk and you have an easy breakfast and no real cooking for the morning!
 Make a goal and eat something for breakfast every day.

For you and your children, every excuse or barrier to eating a nutritious breakfast has a solution. Don't let these excuses stand in your way of starting your day with a good breakfast:

"I'm not hungry in the morning." Start your day with a cup of 100% fruit juice or a piece of whole-wheat toast. Later when you are hungry, eat a mid-morning snack — a hard-boiled egg, low-fat or fat-free milk or yogurt, low-fat string cheese or a whole-wheat bagel.

"I don’t have enough time in the morning." Stock your kitchen with easy-to-prepare foods such as breakfast cereal, instant oatmeal, small bagels, whole-grain toaster waffles, yogurt and fresh fruit.

"I'll gain weight." There is no evidence to support the belief that eating breakfast will make you gain weight. In fact, skipping meals has been shown to lead to overeating at snack time or the next meal.

"I don't like breakfast foods." Breakfast can be any food you like. A slice of pizza, bowl of soup, a lean-meat sandwich or leftovers all make a fine breakfast.

Think of breakfast as your body's morning refueling stop to get your day going the right way.
