When you’re a busy, hard-working woman it can be hard to make time to cook breakfast, yet alone a healthy and filling breakfast at that. Many times you might settle for a bowl of cereal or a piece of fruit, which isn’t enough to sustain you until lunch. If maintaining a healthy and clean diet is your priority than eating the right foods for breakfast has to become part of your morning routine. Below are some of the food combinations that I eat for breakfast. These suggestions are sure to give you the right amount of energy you need to get through the day!
There are so many ways that you can make a breakfast wrap, but the way I choose to make mine is simple. I use three ingredients; eggs, chicken and tortillas. I prefer my tortilla to be a tad crunchy, so I add butter to it and place it in the skillet on top of the stove. Once the tortilla is toasted enough to your liking you can scramble your eggs. Typically, your chicken should already be pre-cooked that way all you have to do is heat it up. Once this is completed place your eggs and chicken and fold it into your tortilla. Bon appetite!
Wheat waffles, Eggs, Fruit + Turkey Bacon
This combo is my #1 choice when it comes to breakfast. The meal itself is only 535 calories if your fruit is a green apple and you eat two of the other food options listed.
PB Toast, Fruit + Sausage
Who doesn’t love peanut butter? It has protein and potassium, which are key to lowering the risk of high blood pressure, stroke and heart disease. Some of my fruit choices include an apple, watermelon, pineapple or melon. Each have the right amount of citrus in it, which is great for boosting your immune system.
Smoothie + Nature Valley Granola Bar
If you’re in a rush and absolutely don’t have time to cook anything make smoothies the night before to drink as you head out for work in the morning. My smoothies usually have spinach in it because of the iron it offers. Lastly, out of all the granola bars out there Nature Valley is my ultimate fave. You can create your own smoothie mix depending on your fruit and juice preferences.
Whatever you do never skip breakfast because it’s the most important meal of the day!
