Whether you're too tired, too busy, too lazy, or just apathetic, there's a good chance that health isn't top of mind when you're thinking of your first meal of the day. No matter how much you'd like to believe otherwise, your Count Chocula cereal doesn't give you the kind of benefits real chocolate delivers.
Luckily for you, there are plenty of healthy, easy breakfasts you can add to your rotation. Like any of these options -- they're less than 300 calories, and should take you no more than 15 minutes to make.
The simplest recipe for success
To keep things stupid simple, your breakfast should have a healthy balance of carbs, proteins, and healthy fats. But you can’t just eat any types of these macronutrients -- there are rules here, people.
Toss out that white-bread toast, English muffin, or bagel, and opt for whole-wheat or rye bread instead.
Your fats need to be of the healthy variety, like monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. You'll find these in avocados, nuts, and olive oil. Back away from the trans and saturated fats found in processed and frozen foods, which should curtail your Pop-Tart addiction.
