Real Life Daily Tip: Eat Breakfast

The best way to stay on track with your fitness goals is to eat breakfast!


You've heard it before and it is still true today. Eating breakfast has so many health benefits that it doesn't make sense not to!

You can still have fun with breakfast, like sneak in a doughnut every once in a while, but studies show that eating a healthy breakfast can help give you:
  • A more nutritionally complete diet, higher in nutrients, vitamins and minerals
  • Improved concentration and performance in the classroom or the boardroom
  • More strength and endurance to engage in physical activity
  • Lower cholesterol levels

BUT...you may not have time to lay out eggs and bacon and toast every day.

Here's my top favorite breakfast's on the go: 
  • Plain Doughnut With Chocolate Milk

    A plain cake-style doughnut is usually a better choice than a bakery muffin. At Dunkin' Donuts, for instance, an old-fashioned doughnut has 280 calories, while a corn muffin has 510 calories. Add fiber by eating ¼ cup of almonds or dried fruit. Instead of coffee, try 8 ounces of low-fat chocolate milk.
  • Strawberry Shake

    Add vanilla or strawberry instant-breakfast powder (look for the no-sugar-added kind, such as Carnation) or what I use, whey protein for filler, a handful of frozen strawberries and fruit juice. 
  • Energy Bars

    To substitute for a meal, an energy bar should have at least 3 to 5 grams of fiber and 10 grams of protein. Odwalla, Kashi GoLean, and TruSoy are all good options. Because cereal bars rarely have more than 2 grams of protein, kids might be better off adding a stick of Go-Gurt! and a sleeve of peanuts.

And my favorite thing about this tip...it's the best way to get you back on track with your fitness goals (if you've fallen off already), and will help you stay on track!
