5 Power Breakfasts to Start Your Day Off Right
They’ll fill you up without weighing you down
We certainly won’t be the first to tell you that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But guys: It’s the most important meal of the day. So do it right with one of these winning power combos.
Banana + chocolate + nut butter
This great triumvirate provides three key nutrients: protein, fiber and calcium galore. Whip the whole thing together in a blender or spread the ingredients individually on a slice of wheat bread.
Toast + Avocado + Egg
Avo-toast may be trendy, but it’s also packed with antioxidants and healthy fats that will keep you good and sated until lunch.
Steel-cut oats + berries + mixed nuts
Here’s why we love oats: They facilitate digestion, they lower cholesterol and they keep you feeling full for hours. Throw in some nutrient-rich berries and protein-packed nuts, and you’ve got yourself a power breakfast.
Whole egg + kale + goat cheese
We all know that kale is virtuous (fiber, potassium and vitamins B6 and C). But the good news for dairy lovers is that goat cheese is also pretty darn healthy, since it’s low in calories and a solid source of calcium and protein. Bring on the morning omelets.
whole wheat muffin + yogurt + Flaxseed + blueberry
A slice of whole wheat bread or a muffin will fill you up with fiber. Then toss together some flaxseed (omega-3 fatty acids), blueberries (heart-healthy potassium) and fat-free yogurt (calcium, protein) for the smoothie bowl of your dreams.
