Six Quick, Easy and Healthy Ways To Start The Day

Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. We hear that a lot, right? But the reason that we hear that is because it really is. After around eight hours of not consuming anything, our body is ready for something to fill it and sustain it. The right kind of breakfast can set you up for the day and give you all of the energy that you need to keep you going. If you don’t eat the right things or don’t have anything at all, how are you expecting your body to be able to do its thing and to have an awake and alert mind?

If you feel like you’re always short on time in the morning, then here are some easy and healthy ways to start the day. Would love to know what your favorite breakfast food is too.

Crustless Quiche Lorraine – Ditch the pastry, and you’ve got a much healthier option of the classic. Keep the bacon and the eggs, as well as a sprinkling of cheese, and you’re good to go. You can make a large one ahead of time, and it will keep for the rest of the week in the fridge.

Chia Pudding – So good that it can be a dessert as well as a breakfast food. Chia seeds, along with your favorite milk and yogurt makes a great combination. Even greater is that you can make a batch ahead of time and leave overnight in the fridge. Serve in small mason jars with a lid, and you could even eat it on the go, topped with some berries or seeds.

Green Eggs and Ham – Dr. Suess was onto something, right? You could use some large slices of ham as a wrap, and fill them with some scrambled eggs. You could add in some pesto for the green, or wilt some spinach. The perfect low-carb and high protein breakfast if ever I saw one.

Bacon and Egg Cups – Line a muffin tray with rashers of bacon, and then crack an egg into each muffin hole. Sprinkle with some chives, mixed herbs or pepper. Then bake in the oven until the egg is cooked. They are great to just grab and a less messy way to eat bacon and eggs. Another protein filled breakfast.

Tea and Toast – Toast some whole wheat or rye bread and then mash up some avocado onto the toast. You could add some chopped cherry tomatoes too if you’d like. Serve with a matcha or ashitaba tea, and you’ve got a breakfast that is full of good stuff. It is nice and quick to make too.

Smoothie Bowl – If you don’t fancy drinking your smoothie, then it can be made a little thicker and consumed as a smoothie bowl. The good thing about this is that you can top it with nuts and seeds, to get extra goodness for the day ahead. Be sure to include things like spinach in your smoothie too. Don’t make it only out of fruit as it will make the fructose level quite high.

What’s Your Favorite Breakfast Food?

Organize A Color Run

Since 2010, color runs seem to have taken over the country! These unique runs are a great way to boost your fitness and to have some fun with your friends. One of the main features of color runs is that they focus on entrants having run rather than the competitive nature of the race. During the race, non-toxic dry paint is thrown across the runners so that they run through a colorful cloud! This is certainly one race that you will never forget! If you want to organize your own race, you can buy the special color powder from various sites online.

Try Pole Dancing

There are now lots of classes dotted around the country that range from beginner routines to ones for experts. There are also some classes that include energetic dance sections into the routines for those who want a fantastic aerobic workout.

Get A Mini Trampoline

If your main problem with traditional exercise and fitness classes is that they are too boring, then I have a great alternative for you. Why not treat yourself to a mini trampoline? These are small enough for you to use them in your home, and they offer a great aerobic and core workout. Lots of gyms also hold classes that are all done on these special kinds of trampolines. You’ll be amazed at just how much effort goes into busting some moves on these small trampolines! It won’t take you long to experience all the fitness benefits.
