Quick and Healthy Breakfast Ideas

Quick and Healthy Breakfast Ideas

If there’s one meal you shouldn’t miss, it’s breakfast.  But when you have to rush off to work or school, breakfast may be the last thing on your mind.  If you’ve been feeling guilty about missing out on the most important meal of the day, I want to show you a quick and easy alternative.  Have a healthy smoothie for breakfast to ensure that you get the nutrients and energy you need for the day.

If you have a blender it will only take a few minutes to whip up a smoothie recipe for breakfast.  You may be tempted to try commercial breakfast smoothies but these are usually very high in sugar.  They also contain preservatives and artificial flavors.  This is not what you want.

Homemade breakfast smoothies can be made with fresh fruits, milk, yogurt, protein powder, fruit juice, tofu and other healthy ingredients.  You can limit the amount of sugar and fat in the smoothie.  If you have kids at home, they’ll be thrilled to help make a breakfast shake.

Make sure to balance the amount of protein, sugar and fat in the breakfast drink.  You and your family need quick energy from carbohydrates as well as long lasting energy from proteins and fat to get you through the day.

Let me introduce you four recipes that will improve your mornings.
