Breakfast top tips

For me breakfast is the most difficult meal of the day. I know that it is the most important meal of the day. I understand the necessity of breaking your overnight fast and that it gets your metabolism moving. I have read loads of literature on how important breakfast is.  But still, for me personally, I would rather spend a few extra minutes in bed!

So here are a few breakfast top tips for how I manage to get a quick and easy but nutrition packed start to the day.

1. Porridge – I put on a pan of porridge (real porridge oats, not those horrible sugary instant things!) with some water on a very low heat whilst I have a shower so it is ready by the time I get out of the shower. You can use milk instead or just pour a little milk over it if you like. I also add a little cinnamon if I fancy a bit of sweetness. Oats are great slow release carbohydrates which keep you fuelled up for longer.

2. Scrambled eggs – these are really quick to cook and give you a great protein kick which keeps you full for hours.

3. Protein shakes – there are loads of good protein shakes available to suit every need: whey, soya or hemp based.  These take seconds to put together and you can drink them getting ready to go out or on the way to work. To really boost the goodness add some vegetable juice or some fruit or yogurt to make it really creamy.

4. Yogurt with nuts – this also gives you a good protein kick, is delicious and quick and easy.

Traditional breakfasts like toast and cereals should be avoided. They are both high in carbohydrates which are turned to sugar in the body which are burnt off too quickly and give you that midmorning slump. Also most cereals are laden with additional sugar which make the situation worse!

So try to take a few minutes to get something inside you in the morning to get your metabolism working and losing weight with these breakfast top tips.
