Power Breakfast: Energy For Your Morning

Power breakfast with protein, vitamins, and fiber.

You’ve heard it before: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. That’s why it should be a power breakfast to give you all the energy you need for a successful day. So what does a power breakfast include? Let me tell you all about it!

Power Breakfast Factor: Protein
Having a full serving of protein in your power breakfast is one of the most important factors. Protein helps satisfy your body, so you are less likely to fill up on empty calories later. It can help maintain or strengthen your muscle mass and assist in repairing tissue for a healthy, functioning body.

Power Breakfast Factor: Fiber
Foods that are high in fiber promote healthy digestion, so your body can easily flush out toxins, which might otherwise have harmful effects. Fiber can also help improve heart health and can help prevent diabetes. Make sure to include fiber in your healthy, power breakfast!

Power Breakfast Factor: Vitamins
Vitamins and minerals should be a part of your daily breakfast. To give yourself an antioxidant boost with your breakfast, add fruits and veggies. Tea is another great way to incorporate antioxidants that help keep your immune system going strong.

Power Breakfast Factor: Sugar
You should avoid foods that contain processed sugar for breakfast. Foods that are full of sugar can make you hungrier, sooner. Plus, it can give you high blood sugar, which causes you to feel a sense of false energy, and then crash.

Power Breakfast Factor: Hydrate
Drink water as soon as you wake up, since your body hasn’t had any water during the night. Hydration is key during your whole day, so start it right with a tall glass of water. It will make your overall day better!

Power Breakfast Factor: Caffeine
I can’t resist a little coffee or tea in the morning. It’s okay to have something with a little bit of caffeine after you wake up. Black coffee and green tea are both full of antioxidants, so they are fine to sip with your morning meal. Just don’t add any extra sugar to them, or you could experience the high blood sugar previously mentioned.

I think that making sure your power breakfast is delicious should also be an important factor! You should be able to enjoy your food and know that it will be giving you energy for the rest of the day. That’s why I love using Shakeology for smoothies when it’s breakfast time. It ranks well in all the nutrition factors listed above. Plus you can use it in other delicious breakfast dishes, like this Chocolate Covered Banana Oatmeal. Another great dish that is super filling, and a big hit with the fam, is this Ham ‘N Quinoa Hash With Baked Eggs. Yum!
