Cheese Omelet in Breakfast Recipe Collection

Breakfast is very important because it helps to rev up your metabolism after the 'fast' during the night. Eating breakfast refuels your brain. The brain can use only glucose, which it gets from carbohydrates or by conversion from protein or fat. So when you skip breakfast, you are asking your brain - and your body - to function on "empty".

Studies with adults found less anxiety and fewer cognition problems among breakfast eaters. Fuel your brain power by eating a breakfast high in complex carbs and protein, but low in sugar and moderate in fat. Try eggs with a side of whole-wheat toast, oatmeal with milk and sprinkled with dried fruit or whole-grain toast with peanut butter and banana slices.

Another important morning tip is to drink a couple of large glasses of water to hydrate your body. This can be in the form of herbal tea or water with a squeeze of lemon or lime juice if you like.

Eggs and bacon plate

To jazz up pancakes, french toast, or waffles, add a dash or two of cinnamon and/or vanilla to the batter.

Substitute Canadian bacon, turkey bacon or sausage for regular bacon or sausage.

Skip the Syrup: Top waffles or pancakes with fresh blueberries and a dollop of lemon flavored yogurt. The protein boost of yogurt turns a favorite treat into a complete meal.

Slimming Suggestion: Top waffles or pancakes with fresh fruit and a dollop of yogurt instead of maple syrup.

Fiber Tip

Enjoy your eggs with ketchup, salsa, or chili sauce? Work some fiber into your favorites: Mix 1/2 cup of your favorite condiment with 1 tablespoon organic chia seeds. Store it in the refrigerator in a tightly closed jar for up to two weeks.
