Mornings can be rough, but don’t rush out the door without making time for breakfast. There may be no meal as important and beneficial as breakfast. There is an old adage that says, “Eat breakfast like a king and dinner like a pauper.”
EATING A HEALTHY BREAKFAST COULD RESULT IN:
- Better blood sugar control throughout the day.
- Curb hunger and regulate appetite.
- Prevent overeating.
Just eating more of your daily calories in the morning, isn’t enough for health benefits, as the quality of the foods eaten matter. Choose to start the day with a “high-energy breakfast” including nourishing foods such as fresh fruit, lean proteins like eggs, whole-grain toast or cereal.
- 1 Whole-wheat tortilla
- 2 Eggs (scrambled)
- ¼ Cup low-fat shredded cheese
- ½ Cup black beans
Scramble eggs in a hot pan and move to a plate. In the same pan add tortilla until heated through. Spoon cooked eggs evenly down center of the tortilla. Top with black beans and
cheese. Fold in opposite sides of tortilla and roll-up burrito-style. Serve immediately and enjoy!
