Wellness Tip: You can prepare and consume a healthy breakfast in 15 minutes or less!

March 2017

People who skip breakfast are unlikely to make up their daily requirement for some vitamins and minerals that a simple breakfast would have provided. They are also placed at an increased risk for diabetes and obesity, experience increased stress hormones, and incur decreased levels of concentration and energy. Many attribute skipping this meal to time constraints, however; studies show a healthy breakfast can be prepared and consumed in 15 minutes or less!

Below are tips on preparing a quick and healthy breakfast:

  • Pick 2-3 foods from the following food groups
    • Bread and grain (i.e. toast, muffin, healthy cereal)
    • Milk (i.e. low-fat yogurt, low-fat milk)
    • Fruit of Vegetable (i.e. banana, apple, carrot)
  • Pick up portable breakfast items while at the store. Foods such as low-fat yogurt, whole grain breakfast bars, granola bars, or fruit are perfect breakfast items to choose from when time constraints are an issue.
  • Accompany your morning coffee with a glass of orange juice or milk!
  • Wake up 15 minutes earlier to allow time to eat breakfast.
  • Plan your breakfast ahead of time. If you anticipate you are going to be pressed for time, prepare your breakfast the night before or pack it to be eaten on the go.
