Top 5 Healthy Breakfast Options

A right breakfast not only keeps you fit but also curbs your mid-meal cravings. Choosing a healthy breakfast option is a complex task; especially, when you desire taste as well as nutrition at the same time.

Image1.Porridge:
Porridge is rich in fibre, which keeps blood sugar level under control, curbs appetite and regulates the building block of muscles. Since you stay on a fast due to an eight-hour sleep every night, a protein rich breakfast is a must. Porridge serves this purpose. It lowers the cholesterol and hence is good for diabetic patients. If your kids are in their growing age, you can add sugar syrup and nuts to the cereal.

Image2.Oatmeal:
Corporate world’s most favourite breakfast, oatmeal contains a rich variety of grains. Also, brilliant marketing and easy access has made oatmeal a frequent breakfast choice. It is a boon for all those who wish to reduce their wheat intake or are on a diet. Oats help control blood sugar level, cholesterol level, regulate bowel movement and relieve people who are prone to depression.

Image3.Poha/Rice Crispies:
The poha version of rice crispies is popular in every Indian household and makes a light breakfast delicacy. Rich in nutritional values, it is good for your eyes and digestive system. Traditionally it is enjoyed best with curry leaves, turmeric powder and a pinch of sugar.

Image4.Egg sandwich:
Boil an egg and slice eat it on a wheat toast with a slice of tomato, some low fat cheese and lettuce and you’ve got yourself a delicious breakfast that’ll keep you going for hours.

Image5.Muesli:
Ditch your regular cereals and try some muesli instead. Fortified with fruits and nuts, muesli is a healthy and convenient breakfast option. Have it with milk or curd and stay full and energised for hours.

Image6.Baked beans with toast:
For a break from the usual egg and toast or cheese and toast combination, try baked beans with toasted wheat bread. Super simple and filling, this breakfast gives you the right combination of protein and carbohydrates to keep you going for a long day ahead.

Image7.Steamed idlis:
Your neighbourhood supermarket is most likely to have a stock of idli batter. Cook idlis the night before, if you’re too rushed in the morning. Eat idlis with honey, it’s yummy and won’t require additional time for making chutney or such. In the morning, microwave idlies, pour some honey and you’re ready to go.

Stay Healthy!! 🙂
