Start Smart: Banish Breakfast Boredom

 With the hustle and bustle of getting back into a manageable routine, now a great time to refocus your health and wellness goals.

We know staying true to personal health goals can become overwhelming, but starting with better breakfast behavior is an easy way to #startsmart in 2017.

Start every single day with breakfast. You’ve probably heard breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and with good reason. You’re literally breaking the fast after (hopefully) seven to nine hours of sleep.

Research shows that regular breakfast eaters are most likely to maintain a healthy weight than chronic breakfast skippers.

Most American breakfast foods (bagels, donuts, muffins, even breakfast cereals) are high in refined carbs and sugar, setting you up for an energy crash before you even make it to lunch!

 
Opt for protein, fiber, and a little bit of healthy fat in your morning meal to keep you energized and satisfied until lunch. 
 
Some healthier (and still delicious!) breakfast options include:
 
 • Greek yogurt or cottage cheese topped with berries and a sprinkle of nuts
 • Oatmeal made with low-fat dairy or soy milk and a tablespoon of almond or peanut butter
 • Scrambled eggs with a handful of spinach, tomatoes, peppers, onions or your favorite veggies plus Whole Wheat toast, wrap, or an English muffin
 
Still don’t have enough hours in a day for a nutritionally balanced breakfast, lunch, and dinner every single day?

We completely understand.

You’ve got enough on your plate with the start of the new school year, so let us take care of the planning, shopping, cooking and clean up. Get back on track with a Good Measure Meals plan and one-on-one nutrition support.
