Real Fast Foods for Breakfast

Woman Drinking Breakfast Smoothie

When you're still low on caffeine and trying to get out the door first thing in the morning, the idea of hitting the drive-through appeals. From the standpoint of health and weight loss, though, that's not a good idea. Here are some betters ways to have healthy (and fast) foods.

Advance Preparation

Make breakfast burritos and keep them in the freezer. A quick reheat, eat and you're out the door. Ditto for the sort of thing you cook on leisurely weekend mornings, like whole grain waffles. Take them straight out of the freezer and pop them in the toaster. Want a veggie omelet? Chop the veggies and beat some eggs the night before. Store both, covered, and cook the next morning. Hard-boil some eggs and make egg salad to spread on your breakfast toast.

You Can Cook

The morning rush is not a good time for cooking in many cases, but it's not impossible. Instant oatmeal is certainly quick, but whole-grain old-fashioned oatmeal cooks just as quickly if you soak it overnight in half the amount of water. Next morning, add the rest of the water and simmer for three or four minutes. Scrambled eggs are quick and easy. So is toast with peanut butter. Slice up some fruit to go with either one. Toss those scrambled eggs in a pita bread for a cook-and-go breakfast.

Real Quickies

A smoothie might be the ultimate quick breakfast. The mix-and match possibilities are pretty much endless. Veggies like kale or carrots can be juiced ahead of time. Or you could use milk as the base and blend in a frozen banana and an apple. Add some yogurt for extra protein. Layer your smoothie and take it with you: yogurt, diced fresh fruit, granola or sliced nuts in a covered cup or bowl.

MRC of Vancouver started me going in my attempt to loose 30 years of weight gain!! I have been using their program for about 18 months and have actually lost 30 pounds. I have changed the way I eat. I've learned what foods are best for ME. By analyzing my DNA and hormones, they helped me learn to eat what was right for me. I have "tweeked" my purchases and preparation of food to make eating healthy and still fun for me. I eat lots of veggies and salads and include a healthy diet of protein. These are very satisfying. Do I "cheat" now and then? Yes, but I don't like how I feel after eating sugar and lots of carbs so I return to my good foods quickly and continue to see my weight drop. I walk my little dog four times a day and have a part-time job that allows me a lot of movement. I feel so healthy and wonderful. It's easy to continue to eat and live a more healthy lifestyle! When I confessed about eating the wrong "foods", the gals simply encouraged me and gave me fresh ideas to satisfy my taste buds. I always felt I could be honest during my consultations with no fear of being lectured! I plan to continue until I reach my desired weight. I expect to reach my goal by 2017. After I reach my weight goal, I plan to remain in good health with my new found healthy way of eating the calories I need to maintain my proper weight. My Dr. is very pleased at my progress. She wondered how I have lost 30 pounds.
