Healthy Breakfast

Ever heard the saying 'breakfast is the most important meal of the day'? If you do not eat breakfast your blood sugar level drops and you will crave sweet foods. A healthy high carbohydrate, low fat breakfast will kick-start your metabolism and leave you feeling full till lunchtime.

The most important thing with breakfast is start getting in to a habbit and building it in to your routine. If you are unable to prepare breakfast in the morning prepare a nutritious smoothie the night before and take it with you to work.

Choices for a Healthy Breakfast

Breakfast Cereals

You need to choose a high fibre breakfast cereal with no added sugar. For muesili go for a low-calorie muesli (no added sugar or salt) or a high fibre cereal - muesili is suprisingly high in calories. You could also add some fresh fruit - a sliced banana, chopped strawberries or dried apricots. This will sweeten the cereal with natural sugars.

Fresh Fruit or a Smoothie

Chop up some fresh fruit and have this with a bio youghurt and honey. This will provide slow release energy which will keep you going till lunch. Alternatively try making a smoothie a delicious fresh fruit mix will energise you and provide a good proportion of your recommended daily intake of fruit. Adding ice and some low-fat youghurt will transform your smoothie in to a rich and creamy shake.

The almost 'Traditional English' breakfast

Whilst we don't endorse the full english fry-up grilling roughly the same ingredients is a different matter. For half the calories of a normal ful english ensure the fat is trimmed from bacon (or try turkey rashers), have a grilled tomato, 2 low fat sausages, wholemeal toast and a poached egg.
