Nothing starts off your day better than a good breakfast. This fact is magnified when it comes to losing weight. This article will share a few healthy breakfast ideas for weight loss.
I know, I know. You are in a hurry. It seems that everyone is in a hurry in the morning and pressed for time. It is because most of us like to squeeze out every last minute we can in the evening. We are then tired and need an alarm clock to wake us up.
If you are looking for something really quick you can either have a protein shake or a meal replacement product. You can literally make this in 30 seconds and still get your nutrition.
All you have to do is fill your shaker cup with milk or water, add your powder, shake it up and you are finished. Meal replacement powders also contains a healthy ratio of carbohydrates along with other nutrients to create balance.
If you have a little more time nothing is healthier in the morning than a hot bowl of oatmeal. You can grind flax seeds on top of it for your healthy fats and you can also add skim milk for protein.
I even mix in some protein powder with it for extra protein. You can use a microwave so this meal will only take around 5 minutes tops to make.
If you have 10 minutes you can use egg whites and the occasional yolk to prepare an omelet. You can add low fat cheese, pepper and onions. You can even scramble them if you’d like.
This is something that goes along good with whole wheat toast in the morning. Or if you have more time you can have your egg whites along with a bowl of oatmeal.
High fiber bran cereal is another great meal you can have in the morning. Although not quite as good as oatmeal for weight loss it is much better than the alternative junky, sugary cereals you will find. You can also add some skim milk to this to keep the fat down.
Another great thing to have is a couple of slices of toast with natural peanut butter. Natural peanut butter contains healthy fats and no preservatives. It actually tastes better than you would think. The only thing is that you need to mix it up yourself and possibly store it in the refrigerator.
If you eat a breakfast like this you will be ahead of almost all of the general population. Most people’s idea of breakfast is a coffee and a doughnut. That is probably the worst thing you can have to lose weight.
A healthy breakfast should contain lean protein, healthy unrefined carbs and plenty of nutrients. If you are really in a hurry at least get your protein in. Protein will really help with weight loss because it helps to build and maintain lean muscle tissue. Muscle burns calories.
As you can see, a healthy breakfast does not need to be complicated. You just need to plan a little and think outside the box. So go ahead and try these healthy breakfast ideas for weight loss. It will get you started on the right track.
