We’ve all heard breakfast is THE most important meal of the day. We also know that breakfast time is typically the busiest time of day, as well. Getting out the door for work, getting the kids out the door for school is time consuming and breakfast is usually the first to go when time is tight. However, breakfast is your best bet to give your body the needed energy and nourishment to get through your day. As an added bonus, did you know it also helps boost your metabolism, thereby aiding in weightloss? When your metabolism is running at full capacity, you burn more calories. You jumpstart your metabolism with breakfast every morning! Franklin Athletic Club gives 4 healthy breakfasts you can start your day with and jumpstart your metabolism at the same time!
1. Greek Yogurt and Berries
Greek yogurt is high in protein and helps keep you feeling fuller longer. Berries are high in antioxidants, building your immune system while sweetening your yogurt at the same time!
2. Poached Eggs
A 2010 study in the journal of Nutrition Research found eating a breakfast of whole eggs helps you feel fuller and eat less for an entire 24 hours! Add in a piece of whole wheat or sprouted whole grain toast with coconut oil and you’ve got your energy to get you through your workouts!
3. Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal
Whole grain oatmeal provides the slow- burning carbs you need to sit through long office meetings or get you through the spin class at the gym. Studies have shown that cinnamon consumed daily helps lose body fat and decrease body weight, so sprinkle in some cinnamon for added flavor!
Make your own concoction of a smoothie in the morning. The best part of this is you can switch up the ingredients to make something new! Try spinach with banana and strawberries or kale and oranges with yogurt.
