Breakfast Recipes that Beat Breakfast Boredom!
Breakfast recipes? I know, I know…you’re in a rush, you have no time, you have kids to get ready for school, you’re late to work, you don’t like it, you’re not hungry. The list of reasons to skip your morning feast goes on and on.
However, by the time you roll out of bed, your body is in starvation mode. It is conserving calories instead of burning them. “Breakfast is your first opportunity to ‘jump start’ your metabolism,” says Lindsey House, R.D., L.D. a Cincinnati-based dietitian and certified personal trainer.
Breakfast is a must…especially for weight loss!
Studies have shown that those that eat in the morning tend to weigh less than those who skip it…
• Wakes up your metabolism
• Reduces hunger throughout the day
• Leads to better food choices throughout the day
• Leads to less calories consumed at lunch and dinner
Bottom Line: When cutting calories to lose weight, breakfast is not the time to do it!
Your calories should be more evenly spread throughout the day in an effort to keep your metabolism fired-up and working for you. Bunching your calories up in the P.M. leads to weight gain and frustration.
Just like lunch, dinner, and snacks, according to Amber Wilson, R.D.,L.D.
, a Columbus, Ohio-based dietitian, protein is a key component of a healthy morning meal and essential to “kick-starting” our metabolism.
It is also a great opportunity to sneak in a serving or two of fruit, a much neglected food group.
Don’t just grab any old sugary breakfast bar, pop tart, or package of donuts. Sugar will send your blood-sugar plummeting and leave you starving in just an hour’s time.
Try some of these protein and fiber packed breakfast recipes that will leave your taste buds happy and your stomach satisfied for hours!
