One of the reasons why people skip breakfast is because they are bored with the limited food choices that are available. Breakfast does not have to be boring if you are willing to look for fresh breakfast ideas once in awhile. Here are a number of great morning meals that are nutritious, delicious and easy to prepare.
1. Mixed Grain Bread
Try some mixed grain bread with a small amount of almond butter, slices of banana, raisins and low-fat milk.
2. High-Fibre Cereal
Another option is high-fibre cereal with mixed nuts and dried fruit on top, and a glass of soy milk that is calcium-fortified.
3. Natural Yoghurt
Natural yoghurt is delicious, especially when it’s supplemented with whole grain cereal, berries and chopped apple, and 100% orange juice.
4. Whole Wheat English Muffin
Toast up a whole wheat English muffin and add a thin spread of low-fat cottage cheese. Put pineapple slices on top, and enjoy it with 100% fruit juice.
5. Yoghurt with Flaxseeds
Mix natural yoghurt with mixed berries and one teaspoon of ground flaxseeds. Enjoy it with one slice of toasted whole grain bread, served with green tea.
6. Scrambled Eggs
Scrambled up some eggs and sprinkle them with ground flaxseed. Enjoy these eggs with mixed grain bread and fruit salad, served with low-fat milk.
