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.

  • 1 frozen banana, peeled and cut up

my father would usaully yell at me for making his food wrong and sometimes if im ten minutes late my mom would say something like this "you need to grow up and take cares of your chours and stop going on my phone" then she go off topic like "you need more friends and go out doors and". Then my dad is all like "are you sleepy bc you eat to much junk food (even thou i barely even eat a full blown meal)". Oh and my brother, he keeps saying how ugly i am and he brings his girlfriend (which is one year younger than him" into my room like can i be alone. What i am saying is family do not like the youngest child.

Tell the manager. According to the rules, if you want to get hacks (nice messages on your profile by someone) Then you have to ask them to do it through comments. Otherwise these things happen.
