A wholesome breakfast can benefit you in numerous ways. It provides your body with nutrients and makes you feel ready to tackle the day ahead. Research shows that choosing the right wholesome options in the morning can also help maintain a healthy body weight, so it’s important to eat the right foods come breakfast – one of the most important meals of the day.
Give yourself 15 minutes in the morning to prepare and eat a wholesome and natural breakfast as part of balanced diet. To help get you started, here are some quick and simple breakfast ideas to get those morning taste buds tingling:
1. Wholegrain cereals
For those who are always on the move, wholegrain and granola breakfast ideas are a wholesome alternative to other quick options. Cereals are a great way to start the day and oat based cereals are particularly popular. Whether you choose to have a fresh bowl of cereal with skimmed milk or opt for a convenient and tasty cereal bar is up to you.
Porridge has always been a hearty and wholesome breakfast choice, especially during the winter months when the cold weather can make it a little harder to get out of bed.
You can keep this breakfast recipe nice and simple or mix it up with added toppings. Either way, the scrumptious oats in porridge are a delicious option and one that’s sure to get you ready for the day ahead. For some popular topping ideas, try a little fruit or honey for added sweetness or give your porridge some crunch with a tasty granola topping.
3. Fruit smoothies
Natural smoothies and juices can provide a range of wholesome delights and are another great breakfast choice. By blending fruits, vegetables, yogurt and perhaps a dash of honey (for those with a sweet tooth) you can make a range of wholesome and natural breakfast recipes. You could always combine your smoothie with a cereal bar to give yourself even more sustenance first thing in the morning. After all, breakfast is designed to break the fast encountered overnight so it’s important you eat well in the morning.
4. Yogurt and fruit
For a light and refreshing option, opt for low fat yogurt and fresh fruit with a sprinkling of muesli or granola on the top. Not only will this count towards your five-a-day, but it will also provide calcium and protein. If you’re feeling experimental, why not try crushing up pistachio nuts, seeds or other wholesome foods and sprinkling on the top? This ensures you enjoy a range of tastes and textures and gives your breakfast that satisfying crunch.
