“A healthy breakfast is the most important meal of the day!”

I’m sure you’ve heard the old adage. The thing is, all meals are important, and the size and number of meals you should eat a day can be debated. This post is not about what’s best or more important.

But I did want to share with you my experience with breakfast. I’ve been all over the map with it in the past. Sometimes, I just don’t feel hungry in the morning, and I’m exhausted and just want a few extra minutes of sleep, so I skip it. Here’s the thing, I almost always end up regretting it. Not because I get hungry before lunch, but because I find myself snacking more in the evening. My energy gets out of wack.

Breakfast is important because it gets your internal systems going. It helps keep you on track and provides you essential energy. I’m not saying you have to eat immediately after waking up, but make sure you get something in you early in the day so you can power through the whole thing (without craving extra calories in the evening).

One of the most common struggles people have with eating a healthy breakfast is not knowing what to make! Especially for picky eaters, it can be difficult to know what to make in the morning, when you’re exhausted and running off to work.

Over the years, I’ve developed quite the list of ideas, and I’m proud to say I eat a healthy breakfast *almost* every day now. I consider it crucial to my success. So here’s just a quick list of ideas for you guys. I hope it inspires you to try something new!

In the comments, tell me what you like to eat for breakfast. And if you try one of these ideas, let me know how it goes!

Simple & Quick

Greek Yogurt, Mixed Berries & Granola/Oats – I usually go something like 1/3 cup yogurt, 1 cup berries, 1/3 cup granola

Fried Egg & Toast – A classic combo. The carbs in the toast provide immediate energy while the protein in the egg makes it last all morning.
