A healthy and nourishing breakfast is great way to start your day and to get fruit, vegies and wholegrains into your diet. Check out our top tips to boost your breakfast and start the day on the best foot possible.
1. Go for wholegrains
Breads and cereals made from wholegrains are an important source of fibre, vitamins and minerals and are a great base for breakfast. Fibre is important to keep the digestive system healthy and wholegrains help us stay fuller for longer.
Swap out white bread for wholemeal or wholegrain varieties or go for rolled oats and high-fibre cereals such as Weetbix or untoasted museli for a quick and easy breakfast. Why not make your own muesli at home for a delicious fiber filled homemade muesli try our toasted muesli recipe
2. Add some fruit or vegies
Did you know we need to eat 5 serves or vegetable and 2 serves of fruit each day to stay healthy? Although it may seem a lot, the key is to spread it over the day starting with breakfast. It could be as simple as adding sliced banana or canned fruit in natural juice to cereal or adding avocado and slices of tomato to wholegrain toast.DIf you have some time up your sleeve, then whip up a batch of zucchini and corn fritters, a delicious way to eat more vegies.
3. Include protein
To keep you feeling fueled for longer include some protein in your breakfast. There is no need for expensive protein powders, great sources include nuts, eggs and dairy foods including milk, cheese and yoghurt.
There are endless options for protein additions at breakfast time. Go for plant and dairy based sources such as yoghurt, milk, cheese, nuts and eggs rather than processed meats. Check out our top three protein packed breakfast recipes:
A great way to make sure your day starts off on the right track is to prep your breakfast the night before. Having pre-cut vegies to add to omeletes, making an overnight oat or chia pudding, or even just putting out a piece of fruit is a way to ensure that your day starts off on the right track.
A great breakfast is a great morning, so make sure to start your day off right and make a healthy choice the next time you wake up.
