It’s also possible to make good choices when you go out for food, which is especially useful when you’re not prepared or forgot breakfast at home. I’ve been there.
Try looking at options ahead of time so when hunger strikes and you’re left stranded, you still have options. Plain bagel with peanut butter and jelly, a bowl of oatmeal with fruit, or even peanut butter crackers from a coffee shop can be an option at the last minute. Try to see if you can customize your meal to have the most nutritional value and the least junk to fuel your day.
If I am too busy for a full breakfast I make a fast cereal bowl or have a banana smoothie etc.
If I miss it completely I just carry on with my day as usually paying extra attention to my cravings and trying to portion the day with some extra healthy snacks throughout the day or perhaps a small toast somewhere along the way
For a mid morning snack it is better to have lighter and easier foods to digest such as fruits.
Missing meals can contribute to a lot of unwelcome things, including gas/indigestion. Keeping your system satisfied without over filling, or needlessly snacking, throughout the day is important. Definitely stay hydrated.
- Why is it wrong to skip breakfast? I know people who skip breakfast and actually feel better after skipping breakfast.
- I can eat in the morning, but I’m having a hard time eating before going to work because no matter what time I wake up I feel like I’m always running late. I want to eat before I get to work because I want to eat breakfast within an hour of waking up to start my day off right. How do you do it?
- Is eating breakfast the first or last part of your morning routine?
- How do I start remembering things better and feel comfortable with it?
- What are some yummy add-ins that you like to put in your overnight oats?
- Is caffeine okay, or not recommended?
- What do you have for breakfast as a healthy option?
- I have to get two kids (2 and 3) ready every morning and don’t ever feel like I have time to cook eggs for breakfast. What are some very healthy going-out-the-door recipes that take minimal prep?
- Is it good to run before or after breakfast?
- Any small meals that are filling? I’m not very hungry in the morning and don’t know what to eat.
