Best on the Go Breakfast Meal Ideas
Many busy people on the go don't take the time to stop and eat any kind of breakfast at all, let alone one that is healthy. Often, those who do bother to eat breakfast grab something fill of sugar and/or fat, which largely defeats the purpose of eating breakfast to start with.
After your body has been inactive for hours overnight, it's important to eat a healthy morning meal to give you the fuel that you need to get through the day. In most cases, eating breakfast kick start's one's metabolism, setting the stage for whatever your energy levels are going to be during the coming day.
Even though most of us realize just how important it is to get off on the right foot in the morning with a healthy meal, many of us don't take the time to have one. We rationalize our neglect of our body's nutritional needs, telling ourselves that we don't "have time" to worry about preparing or eating breakfast.
The good news is that healthy breakfast meal ideas don't have to be time consuming or difficult. You don't have to wake up and start cooking first thing in the morning just to give your body the fuel it needs to get through a busy day.
On the Go Healthy Breakfast Ideas:
Nutrition Bars: Keep a stockpile of nutrition bars in your pantry at home and in your desk at work. There's nothing easier than grabbing a nutrition bar when you're heading out the door in the morning. You can eat it on your way to work! Make sure to choose bars that are in fact packed with nutrition rather than unnecessary sugar and calories your body doesn't need.
Yogurt: Eating yogurt in the morning is a great way to get your body kick started. Most of us need more calcium that we get, and yogurt can be the perfect solution for that. It's also a great source of lean dairy protein. As with the nutrition bars, make sure that you are selecting a variety that has more nutrition than sugar.
Sandwiches: Most people think of sandwiches as great on the go lunch ideas. They also work great for breakfast. Whether you like wrap sandwiches or those made on regular bread, you can easily enjoy a sandwich any time of day. They're easy to eat on the go. If you're making a sandwich to take to work for lunch, just make an extra and enjoy it on your way to work. Assuming you put nutritious items on the sandwich, this can be a great way to get your day off to a great start.
