It’s not always easy to wake up in the morning. Sometimes, getting up out of bed, getting dressed and eating a hearty breakfast can be downright difficult – we understand. Well, since breakfast IS the most important meal of the day and studies suggest that a nutritious breakfast can help you maintain a healthy weight, it’s time to change up your old morning routine. See below to find out how to take your favorite breakfast staples and make them a whole lot healthier:
Flavored Oatmeal Packs
Warm oatmeal is a great way to start the day. It’s quick, it’s easy and it tastes pretty good for the most part. However, most flavored instant oatmeal packs contain absurdly high levels of sugar so this is your go-to, try homemade blueberry overnight oats or pumpkin oatmeal instead!
They’re hard to pass up, we know. But deep-fried donuts smothered in colorful frosting isn’t on the list of healthiest breakfast options. You can, however, enjoy a much healthier breakfast snack by baking your own banana bread donuts or apple cider donuts.
There may not be a better breakfast combo than a piping hot cup of joe and a buttery, sugary scone – but again, you won’t find that duo on any “healthy” list. Instead, we recommend whipping up protein apple squares or healthy breakfast cookies if you just can’t seem to get rid of your sweet tooth in the morning.
