Healthy Breakfast choices – Part 1

Its 4 years now, I do not remember missing my breakfast, even when as a medical student I have to be in class at 8am sometimes and I live about 30mins away from the university by bus, not to mention different hospitals for practical sessions with patients and doctors. But I always have my breakfast because the benefits are much, you can check more on that in the article “Eat more to burn fat” and if you haven’t seen Exercise before breakfast: Benefits do well to check it, it won’t be a waste of time I promise.

In Mensfitness website, it is stated and I quote “BREAKFAST IS THE most important meal of the day—as if you haven’t heard that before. But what you may not know is that eating breakfast is essential for successful weight loss. “It’s like putting logs on a wood-burning stove. You need that initial input of fuel to get your metabolism going for the day,” says Milton Stokes, R.D., author of Flat Belly Diet! For Men. Shoot for 400 to 600 calories within an hour of waking up, with an emphasis on nutrients that will leave you satisfied for hours: protein healthy fats, and fiber.” And women of course shoot for a little lesser calories for the same and similar purpose.

People have always asked me what I take for breakfast and I always make it simple, in this article I will mention some and leave some for later. Some of the recipes here a very personal as I take them quite regularly and other are for the sake of this article and of course people have and are using them. Here we go!

Oatmeal with Raisins and Eggs (boiled, fried or scrambled)

This could be in normal cooked form with raisins mixed or it could me baked oats-raisins cookies, variations are always a thing to consider. Oats have about 12g of protein besides its rich carbohydrate in a 100g quantity and eggs of course, high protein…A great choice for the morning. My most consumed breakfast.

Peanut butter toast bread (preferrably rye bread)

Peanut butters have healthy natural fats and a very high content of protein, 2 tablespoonfuls of peanut butter can contain up to 7-8g of protein making it one of the best choices for the morning.

Protein powder with personal choices

Protein powder is the most versatile and nutrient-dense source of the musclebuilder nutrient. 2 scoops can supply over 30g of protein and that of course is awesome.

Protein powders can be used in oats, smoothies, bakeries, etc, see the slideshow for a few choices

Beans and Veggies

Packed with soluble fiber—a powerful belly fat fighter—beans will not only fill you up for hours but also help slim you down says eatthis.com.

There are countless forms these samples can go and how you prefer to arrange yours is up to you, I just prefer to make them look simpler and easier so as to encourage a trial.

I hope you liked them, let me know what you think, Thanks a lot for coming around, its my pleasure

    I have been experimenting with my breakfast for a while now. And the best I have come across is this: Peanutbutter+Oatmeal+Banana+Raisin+Milk+Honey. It has always kept me full till mid day. Even on days when I have a lot on my plate and need to move around, out and about.
