We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Missing breakfast can really be disastrous in many ways, especially if you are in a workout or exercise routine. When you miss that most important meal of the day, your body is going to react negatively and you are going to be hungrier when you do eat. Missing that first meal of the day causes the body’s metabolism to decrease which can result in weight gain and increase your hunger around your next meal time. From fatigue and mood, to irritability and other psychological effects, you can see how breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But many people have such a busy lifestyle that missing breakfast can just be a matter of running out of time to eat, or just not having enough time on your schedule. To help with this I have put together three easy tricks to help you save time and make sure you get that most important meal of the day.

Make Freeze And Reheat Convenient Foods

Proper planning with some great recipes can help you make some quick and easy meals that you can make, freeze, and reheat in the morning. Foods like whole grain banana pancakes or breakfast burritos are not only easy, but super tasty and healthy. Making either of these is a great choice.

Prepare Meals The Night Before

Along with making pancakes or breakfast burritos, you can prepare things like oatmeal, hard boiled eggs, or containers of fresh fruit like apples, bananas, and berries of your choice. Adding a handful of almonds or walnuts to your fresh fruit not only adds more nutrients, but fresh fruit and nuts together are a fantastic and nutritious combination. Try slicing some apples; add some bananas, some blueberries, and some walnuts together for a really healthy and tasty quick breakfast. Whatever fruits or nuts you like, just combine them the night before in a container and enjoy them the next morning. You can also try adding some yogurt over the top of your fruit and nuts for something really fun, easy, and healthy.

Grab And Go Protein Bars

If you are in a hurry and on the go, getting healthy food like fresh fruit, an apple or a banana, and protein bars like ‘Quest Protein Bars’ are still a good choice rather than having no breakfast at all. Pre-made protein shakes are also another good and quick option if you have no other choice and are not prepared to eat breakfast or have nothing pre-made. It is important to pick healthy choices when you are on the go and watch out for protein bars that may have too much sugar. But remember, it is better to eat something than nothing at all. Eating a healthy breakfast throughout the week will give you the energy you need to face the day, help stop cravings in between meals, and affect your body and mind in an overall positive way.
