Trying to lose weight or maintain a healthy lifestyle? Eat a healthy breakfast. According to the Harvard School of Public Health, eating a healthy breakfast is a must. Studies show that healthy breakfasts help individuals lose weight and keep unwanted pounds off. In fact, according to Eric Rimm, professor of epidemiology and nutrition at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, breakfasts should make up of 25-30 percent of your daily calorie intake. According to the US Department of Health’s Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2015 to 2020, breakfasts should consist of a good mix of whole grains, healthy proteins, and fresh fruits and vegetables. Here we’ve found five recipes for quick and easy breakfasts that won’t take much time or effort to prepare.
Sauté vegetables and mushrooms together in olive oil or a non stick pan. Beat eggs in a separate bowl and season with salt and pepper. Take out vegetables from pan and pour in eggs, covering pan. When still slightly wet, put vegetables back in pan on half of the egg, and fold the rest over. Serve on whole grain toast, brown rice, or quinoa.
Toast slices of bread in a toaster oven. Spread cream cheese on bread while hot. Top with spinach leaves, smoked salmon, onions, and capers.
Spoon yogurt into a bowl and top with all the ingredients. Enjoy.
This combo is perfect for you if you’re always in a mad dash out the door. Bananas and apples are naturally sweet, so they go well with unsweetened nut butters. They’ll keep you full until lunch time, too!
Mix together oats, milk, cocoa, and sugar. Keep in a bowl or mason jar in the fridge overnight. Top in with mango slices before eating.
