Eat These Foods for the Best Breakfast

Experts and mom say to be sure to include protein for the best breakfast.

best breakfastIf you want to start your day off right with the best breakfast, you need to make healthy choices.  A balanced meal of protein, whole grains, fruits and vegetables. The specifics will depend on your personal goals and current health, but in general your meal should be made up of about 25% protein, 25% carbohydrates, and 50% fruits and vegetables.  Given this information, check out these easy and nutritious ideas to start your day with the best breakfast.

Greek Yogurt with Granola and Berries.  Granola can really pack a punch of sugar and fat so always check the label.  Non-fat Greek yogurt typically contains about 22 grams of protein per one cup serving, just what you need to fill you up and fuel you for the day.

Egg White and Veggie Omelet.  Use whole eggs if you want or just the whites for a leaner protein source.  Pack your omelet with spinach, tomatoes, mushrooms, and more.

Oatmeal with Peanut Butter and Fruit.  Use whole rolled or steel cut oats rather than the more processed quick or instant options.  Just two tablespoons of peanut butter contains eight grams of protein and a healthy dose of unsaturated fat.  Add some bananas and blueberries for vitamins and antioxidants.
