6 Healthy Breakfast Ideas

People who eat breakfast are significantly less likely to be obese and have diabetes than those who don’t. The most important tip is to have breakfast everyday. Without exception. This one action alone can make a huge, positive difference to your health. But a doughnut or chocolate muffin won’t do. Try one of these 6 healthy breakfast ideas to give you the fuel you need to take on your day.

1. A bowl of high-fiber, multi-grain cereal, with strawberries and low-fat milk on top.

2. A cereal bar, an apple and a glass of
cold milk.

3. A bowl of fat-free yogurt with fresh
blueberries mixed in, and a slice of
whole-wheat toast with a fruit spread.

4.A mini whole-wheat bagel, spread lightly with cream cheese and jam, and a peach with a bowl of yogurt. Want other bagel topping options? Try one heaped teaspoon of peanut or almond butter, a mashed banana, or one tablespoon of cottage cheese topped with a thin slice of smoked salmon topped with a couple of tablespoons of mashed fresh raspberries or blueberries.

5. A scrambled egg, a whole-wheat roll,
fresh-fruit salad and a cup of low-fat milk.

6. A bowl of muesli or oatmeal with
chopped banana or dried fruit. Try our recipe for Blueberry Cranberry Crunch

A Unique Take on Cereal

Have a bowl of sweetened brown
rice. Brown rice is full of
energy-providing B vitamins, as well as
being a great source of filling fiber. Cook
the rice the night before, then, in the
morning, put it in a bowl with a spoonful
of honey, a handful of raisins, a cut-up
apple and a sprinkle of cinnamon for a
unique yet delicious treat. Don’t like rice?
Try other cooked grains instead, such as
barley, oats, buckwheat, quinoa or millet.

it combines the slowness of a car with the cramped public exposure of 
an airplane.
