Berry Patch Overnight Oats

Mar 18, 2023 | Breakfast

Wake up to the benefits of breakfast. Breakfast literally means “to break the fast”; and while there is some controversy as to whether or not it’s the most important meal of the day, I think we can all agree that a healthy breakfast can be a delicious way to provide the body with important nutrients.

Start your day feeling energized and nourished with these simple breakfast tips.

  1. Choose a whole grain or complex carbohydrate: These foods will provide fiber, helping you stay full and stabilizing blood sugars. Go for oats, whole grain breads, quinoa or potatoes.
  2. Add in antioxidants: Whether its fruit or vegetables, these foods are known to have a variety of antioxidants that can defend your body from free-radical damage.
  3. Pass the protein: Protein is fuel for the long haul. Unlike simple carbs, protein has the power to keep us full, longer. So, always add a protein to your carbohydrate rich meal. Eggs, Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, protein powder and tofu are great choices.
  4. Add in crunch: Nuts and seeds offer heart healthy fats, flavor and texture to meals. Some of my favorites include almonds, peanuts, chia and flax seeds.
  5. Skip the sweets: Added sugars do not provide valuable nutrition like vitamin, minerals and fiber. A sugar-forward breakfast can leave you feeling irritable and hungry later in the day. Instead, leave the sweets for an occasional indulgence.
