Nutrition - Quick and Healthy Breakfast Ideas

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day because it gives you energy to pay more attention in class and score higher on tests. But even though it's important, many people skip it because they don't think they have time to prepare nutritious meals in the AM. So here are some quick and healthy breakfast ideas for peeps on the go!

Breakfast Ideas - Fruits Galore

A healthy breakfast consists of fruit, which is an excellent source of fiber. It's a great idea to stock up on fiber first thing in the morning to help keep your body running smoothly for the rest of the day. Try cutting up all your fave fruits to make a fresh fruit salad, and eat as is or add yogurt, honey or almonds for more flavor and crunch. You can also use fruit as a topping for just about everything, from cereal and instant oatmeal to pancakes and waffles.

Breakfast Ideas - Quick Spreads

Pop a slice of whole grain bread or bagel in the toaster and top with cheese and apple, pear slices, cream cheese with sliced bananas, berries or raisins. If you're in a real hurry, wrap one of the toppings in a flour tortilla to make a breakfast burrito.

Breakfast Ideas - Get Crackin'

Here's a creative breakfast idea, but you'll need an adult to help you out. Using a cookie cutter, take the center out of a piece of bread (choose whole wheat or multigrain over white) and place the holey bread in a hot pan. Crack an egg and place it in the hole of the bread. Cook until the egg is set and the bread is toasted golden brown.

Breakfast Ideas - Fruity Smoothies

Smoothies are one of the easiest - not to mention yummiest - healthy breakfast choices. There's no need to add sugar because fruits contain natural sugars that'll sweeten your drink.

Ingredients:

  • 1 frozen banana, peeled and cut up
  • 1/4 cup fresh or frozen berries (such as raspberries, blackberries and/or strawberries)
  • 1 cup orange juice

Throw all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.

Just Peachy Shake

Same as above.

I have trichotillomania and am willing to help other people with it and get help myself. It kind of like a little support group of trich-ers!

Pretty much, but in weird ways. I'll have my dad one day telling me that hair (that's around less than a foot in length) is too long. Or, when I'm eating breakfast, he'll yell at me to eat my ####### (sounds really wrong) ,specifically, first, under the guise that he "told me to".
