5 Steps To A Healthier Morning Meal

healthy breakfast options

(BlackDoctor.org) — The path to healthier eating (and a healthier, thinner body) begins first thing in the morning. Before you rush out the door for a busy day, remember how important it is to “break” the “fast”.

Why?

Your body is sluggish and sleepy from a night’s rest and is still conserving calories – not burning them. Having a good, well-balanced breakfast can jump start your metabolism and keep your appetite under control for the rest of the day.

Breakfast doesn’t have to be complicated and luxurious – unless you want it to be. Think a little carbohydrate – whole grain toast, an English muffin, or even milk, and a little protein. Protein can come from peanut butter, egg, cheese, or even sliced deli meat. The combination of carbohydrates and protein will give you a boost of energy that will keep you going for a few hours.
