3 Tips for a Great Breakfast

Breakfast has long been touted as the most important meal of the day – and for good reason. It kick-starts your metabolism and provides the fuel you need to start your day the right way. If you’re looking for a healthy, great breakfast, consider these three tips and tricks that can help you stay on the right track.

Prepare Breakfast the Night Before

It’s 7:28 a.m., and you have to be out the door in T minus two minutes. Odds are: you’re not whipping up a hearty omelet packed with proteins and veggies. Instead, you grab the nearest bowl, pour in the sugar-laden cereal that was staring at you from your pantry, and dive in. If mornings just aren’t your thing, use your night owl instincts to plan ahead.

Preparing for breakfast well ahead of the 7 o’clock hour can help keep you from snatching a quick, often unhealthy option during the morning rush. For example, many health-conscious people use overnight breakfast recipes. By making breakfast the night before, you can sleep in and have a nutritious breakfast.

But hey, we get it. Mornings can be rough. So if you’re ever in a bind, you can always visit Garry’s for a healthy breakfast, especially if those overnight oats don’t pan out as planned. Try the Avocado Toast – it’s delicious and packed with heart-healthy fatty acids. Or, opt for our healthy California Omelet.

Stock Up on Healthy Breakfast Options

You can’t gorge on sugary pastries if you don’t own any. Use this principle to your advantage when you make your grocery list.

The next time you’re at the store, invest in some healthy pantry options. Think staples, such as quick oats, flaxseeds, chia seeds, quinoa, and nuts. You’ll also want to stock your fridge and freezer with healthy items, such as eggs, fruits, and veggies. Also, consider keeping lean ham, turkey bacon, and other proteins on hand.  

At Garry’s, we offer a variety of healthy breakfast choices, including our Healthy Choice Omelet. This delectable dish combines mozzarella cheese, green peppers, onions and tomatoes with low-fat egg whites. On the side, you’ll get an English muffin and a fruit cup to round out your breakfast.

Behold the Power of Protein

A gurgling stomach can interrupt an otherwise peaceful morning. Make sure you stay full until lunchtime by eating a protein-packed breakfast. Good sources of protein include eggs, Greek yogurt, peanuts, and other nut butters and even savory bacon. In fact, a single large egg contains about 6g of protein. No matter your breakfast preferences, see to it that your plate has a healthy amount of protein. It’ll help you feel fuller, longer.
