Easy Hacks for a Healthier Breakfast

Try these simple tricks to up the nutritional ante of your morning meal:

__Don’t skip breakfast! Just don’t. Skipping breakfast may make you hungrier and more likely to eat larger meals.

__Eat within an hour of waking. Research shows that the longer you wait to eat breakfast, the more likely you are to overeat later in the day. Start your day with a protein packed meal and you will feel more awake and productive throughout the day.

__Cut out the sugar. Skip pastries, donuts and sugary cereals to avoid spikes and drops in your sugar level that cause sluggishness, moodiness and sweets cravings. Eliminating sugary foods from your diet will also help you look and feel healthier.

__Sprinkle on chia seeds. This power food contains calcium, manganese, phosphorous, and omega 3s. It aids heart health, boosts energy and metabolism and can help regulate cholesterol.

__Add color to your breakfast. Colorful fruits like berries, kiwi and cherries not only contain a load of health benefits, they can help jazz and sweeten up your morning meal.

__Prepare the night before. You’re more likely to eat breakfast if it’s there waiting for you when you wake up. Spend 10 minutes whipping up something yummy each night so that you don’t have any prep work in the morning.

__Put your blender to work. If you’re in need of a grab-and-go breakfast, smoothies are the perfect option. Be sure to add a good source of protein like collagen protein, yogurt or almond butter to help you stay satisfied longer.

__Don’t forget the Collagen! Collagen protein helps keep you full and energized all morning, plus it has loads of health benefits for your entire body. Give it a try!
