You know what they say: breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So, when you rush out of your house, and make go-to double tall latte your breakfast of champions, you’re not doing yourself any favors. Sure, it may be tempting to save some time by not cooking yourself a wholesome, antioxidant and protein packed breakfast, but for the rest of your day…(they’ll be a price to pay.) Here are three easy-to-assemble breakfast ideas that will do your metabolism good!
This is a ridiculously simple concept, but it’s a food trend that seems to keep on trending. Toast a piece of bread (go for whole wheat or rye) and top with mashed avocado and cheese, your favorite nut butter, strawberries and bananas, or light cream cheese, lox and walnuts. For an extra energy boost, top a piece of toast with chive and onion cream cheese, fresh basil, and fresh berries (blackberries and raspberries for a jolt of antioxidants.) Even top a piece of toast with thin slices of mozzarella, mango and lime zest! The possibilities are endless, and good health has never been easier to attain!
Don’t listen to the haters—when it comes to a breakfast that will boost your brain power at work, decrease mood swings or help you to ace that exam, you need fiber, protein and a low glycemic index food to keep you level. This breakfast is just what will keep your mood steady, and your metabolism buzzing. Fry an egg (even scramble one if frying isn’t your thing) and serve in half of a pitted avocado. Sprinkle a little salt and pepper, and you’ve just created a breakfast packed with protein and fiber—in less than five minutes!

Then add a handful of almonds, 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon, one banana and one apple. Enjoy!
You’ll always have a great day when it starts with a powerful breakfast. When you make any of these recipes, you’ll feel better, have energy that lasts and lose those love handles!
