I am one of those unfortunate people who can’t get anything done unless I have a decent breakfast in the morning. For many years that meant a bowl of cereal. However, after some investigation into the main ingredients in most cereals (refined wheat and added sugar) I came to realize that what I thought was a healthy breakfast was anything but!
With most breakfast cereals off my healthy eating menu, I made the switch to eating oatmeal for breakfast. Oatmeal is much more natural but, because you eat it hot, it’s not so good for summertime. It is, however, very filling and loaded with fiber which makes it a good choice in the wintertime.
Eggs are a good breakfast choice too. High in protein and healthy fats, as well as vitamins and minerals, a couple of eggs are a really good way to start your day.
But, in my opinion, the best breakfast (both in terms of health and ease) is juice. I don’t mean commercially-produced juices that are made from concentrate, but homemade juices that contain both fruit and vegetables. Quick to make, super-healthy, filling, and delicious, homemade juices are awesome.
This is one of my favorite juice recipes.
