Consuming calories in the morning helps boost your metabolism. Our bodies have a sort of emergency shut-off. When we “fast” or abstain from food for a length of time, our system starts to hoard the sugar we last consumed, turning it into fat and making it harder to burn off.

You need to let your body know every morning that food is available; you need to tell your body to burn, burn, burn! This habit will keep BMI (mass body index) in check for the whole family, which is important to our overall health.

Tips for a good breakfast routine

  1. Get up 10 mins earlier. Adjusting your morning schedule ever so slightly is an easy way to give you time in the kitchen for a quick breakfast.
  2. Add protein to your breakfasts. Protein is important because it helps to keep you satisfied, and mentally alert.
  3. Start small. A good breakfast does not have to be a giant buffet! Ease into your breakfast routine with smaller portions, like protein shakes or fruit bowl. It will keep you satisfied without overwhelming you.
  4. Break up your breakfast – This is great if your mornings are a bit of a hustle! You can sip a protein shake on the go, or have your eggs first then save your fruit for when you hit the office or after the school run!
  5. Make ahead breakfasts. Having breakfasts ready to grab in the morning makes like so much easier. Try to freeze breakfast burritos or whole grain pancakes ahead of time, make a batch of soul-warming overnight oats, or whip up energy packed breakfast bars.

  1. Hi Yumna!
    This breakfast guide is so useful and offers great advice. I’ve always struggled with the planning and time side of breakfast. I also never have much of an appetite or tolerance of breakfast. I personally opt for protein smoothies in the morning because of the low time and appetite commitment required. I just might try make ahead breakfasts. Overnight oats offer so much variety, ease and are budget friendly. Thank you for the helpful guidance on how to incorporate a healthy breakfast into the routine.
