What you eat is so important to getting the fitness results you want. That’s why at JAR Fit in Denver, CO, we provide nutritional help that is downloaded and includes easy to make menus and even a grocery list so you have everything on your phone when it’s time to shop. Rather than grabbing a donut or a bowl of sugary cereal, the plan comes with healthy breakfast ideas that will boost your energy level, fill you up, provide the adequate calories you need and all the nutrition.
Stop the mid-morning doldrums and cravings with a healthy breakfast that’s quick and easy.
Eating a breakfast high in sugar may give you immediate energy, but when ten-thirty or eleven rolls around, you’ll feel washed out and exhausted. That’s because the sugar spiked your sugar level and increased the insulin level, only to have it dip to a deep valley later. Prepare ahead. Make overnight oats the night before, and they’re ready to heat and serve or prepare zucchini, pumpkin or banana bread and spread a tablespoon of nut butter on it. The protein from the nut butter digests slowly, aiding in keeping a blood sugar level.
Simple hard-boiled eggs and whole grain toast with avocado spread is a healthy breakfast that keeps you full.
Make hard-boiled eggs ahead and store them in the refrigerator. All you have to do to make breakfast is toast the bread and spread it with mashed avocado for a healthy option that is quick. You can add a half grapefruit to your breakfast or save it for a mid-morning snack. The protein from the egg and healthy fat from the avocado will keep you feeling full longer than any bowl of sugary cereal ever would.
Eating a healthy breakfast can help you lose weight, too.
It might seem counter-intuitive to think eating breakfast could help you lose weight if you’ve never eaten breakfast previously, but it’s true. That filling of satiety is one of the reasons. It stops you from eating something higher in calories later in the day. You can whip up breakfast egg muffins quickly if you have all the ingredients ready. Sliced mushrooms, steamed broccoli, red pepper, lean meat and onion can be mixed with eggs whipped with milk, salt and pepper and baked in the oven in muffin pans for eight minutes. You can eat it on the run.
- If you have a blender, there’s nothing better than a smoothie for warm weather. You can mix any ingredients together, but include some frozen fruit and Greek yogurt to get that thick ice cream like flavor.
- You need a good balance of carbs, healthy fat, protein and fiber for a healthy breakfast. You also need a source of fiber. Consider mixing plain Greek yogurt, fresh or frozen fruit and granola, ground flax seed or wheat germ for a quick parfait breakfast.
- Make a breakfast sandwich for eating on the go. Use whole grain, high fiber bread for toast, smear it with mashed avocado and add a slice of cheese, tomato, lettuce and a poached, hard-boiled, microwaved or baked egg.
- If you want to make your oatmeal healthier, add fruit, crushed nuts, cinnamon or ground flax seed. If you like a breakfast adventure, consider an open face sandwich with smoked salmon, egg, whole grain bread, baby lettuce and tomatoes.
