There’s no denying we’re big fans of breakfast at Right Bite, but personal preferences aside, breakfast is in fact the most important meal of the day as it helps kick start your metabolism. Not just that, breakfast skippers tend to nibble more throughout the day and could develop weight-related problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or heart disease. If you’re already having trouble keeping up with your healthy eating resolutions, a clean start may be exactly what you need! And while we may know how to supercharge your breakfast, we’re no superhero, especially in the morning… so here are out top healthy breakfast ideas!
1. TIME IS ON YOUR SIDE
While a hot bowl of oats is yum and comforting, overnight oats have a lot of good things going for them! To start, raw, soaked oats are easier to digest and better absorbed by your body as the soaking acts like a slow cooker and breaks down the starches. Moreover, by soaking your oats, this means you can eat them chilled instead of waiting for your hot oats to cool which makes them higher in resistant starch and will keep you fuller longer and help control insulin spikes associated with eating hot carbohydrates. Finally, just like a good marinade, take your time the night before to mix up your favorite milk with some fruit or spices and let the soaking work its magic. Now all that’s left for you to do in the am is add some extra goodness: - power up with protein by adding half a cup of cottage cheese or greek yogurt or a tablespoon of your favorite nut butter, - add some fresh fruit for extra fiber, - and sprinkle with seeds for crunch and some antioxidant action!
