5 Ways to Make Your Breakfast Healthier

  1. Skip the processed options. Yes the easy packaged options are tempting. They are there ready and waiting BUT, due to them being highly processed, much of the nutritional value is removed. Always try to opt for homemade foods that include a range of fresh ingredients.

  2. Add protein to your breakfast to keep you fuller for longer. Protein is crucial for muscle recovery and assists in keeping those cravings at bay. If you are someone who is always looking for more snacks, maybe its time you check your protein intake. Easy breakfast protein sources include eggs, Greek yoghurt, cottage cheese and quinoa.

  3. Swap fresh juices for cold pressed juices or smoothies. Juices are great, but they remove much of the fibre in the fruit. Opt for blending your fruit, rather than juicing and ALWAYS choose fresh over the store bought juices which often have added sugars.

  4. Cook at home over eating out. Dining out is great but when watching your nutrition, it becomes hard to know what is really in your meals. There is often a reason the scrambled eggs taste way better at a café than at home.....a shit load of butter. Cooking at home means you know exactly what you are eating.

  5. Opt for whole wheat options. Whole wheat bread always contains the whole wheat grain rather than part of the grain. The nutritional value of multigrain bread varies because it is not always whole grain. Since whole wheat bread contains the whole grain, it also contains nutrients such as copper, iron, zinc, Omega-3 fatty acids, magnesium, fibre protein, manganese and B vitamins, making for a nutritious and balanced bread option.

Remember, breakfast is for champions.
