Avoid Refined Carbohydrates

These include any white bread, bagels, and pastries. Refined carbohydrates give you a very short-lived energy boost. Whole-grain bread and cereals release energy slowly, allowing you to have a constant supply of energy until your next meal.

Include Protein in Your Diet

This can be from meat, eggs, nuts, or dairy. Protein helps keep you fuller longer. Try putting leftover steak or chicken in a breakfast sandwich or eating a slice of whole-grain toast with peanut butter.

Eat More Fruits and Vegetables

You'll get a good dose of important vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Try adding sliced fruit to cereal or yogurt or simply eat it whole. Toss spinach and red peppers into an omelet.

Be Creative and Spice Things Up

If you're bored of cereal, try another cereal or something different altogether. You could try out exotic fruit smoothies or fancy omelets. Even better, try eatting dinner for breakfast!

Getting it Fast Doesn't Have to be "Fast Food" Bad

Not having time shouldn't be an excuse to not eat breakfast. Give ready-made liquid breakfasts a go (just be wary of added sugar. Cafes usually serve healthy food with fresh ingredients. Try grabbing a sandwich on your way to work.

Prepare in Advance to Stay Ahead of Your Day

Homemade breakfast is possible even for the time-crunched. You can make a variety of foods ahead of time, like sandwiches, parfaits, and burrito fillings. Try making a large batch of whole-grain pancakes or waffles to freeze and reheat in the toaster oven for a quick bite.
