10 Healthy Breakfast Ideas

September 14, 2012


Healthy breakfast 1: Porridge and berries


Use oats and skimmed milk to make your porridge, then add any berries such as strawberries, raspberries or blueberries and honey. This is a great healthy breakfast to start the day as the oats have a low GI (Glycaemic Index) this tells us that oats do not raise the blood glucose level very quickly, which is good as it can help stabilize the appetite. Just go easy on the honey!


Healthy breakfast 2: Beans on toast


Beans (whether they are just ordinary baked beans or kidney, borlotti or black eyed beans) also have a low GI like oats. They are full of soluble fiber, which helps keep you full for longer and can therefore help you manage your weight. Serve the beans on Granary toast and pass on the butter; a great, low-fat breakfast.

Healthy breakfast 3: Bagel with reduced fat cream cheese and smoked salmon


Bagels are high in starchy carbohydrates, which help kick start the body into action for the day after a fast of at least eight to 10 hours. The smoked salmon provides the body with omega-3 fat which is essential for the body. Many of us eat far too much saturated fat (which is bad for us) and not enough omega-3 fat that is vital for our health.


Healthy breakfast 4: Fruit and yogurt

Try adding your favourite fruit to a small pot of low-fat or diet yogurt for a healthy breakfast. A small pot of yogurt counts as one of your three portions per day of dairy foods, essential for the teeth and bones.


Healthy breakfast 5: Bacon, tomatoes, beans, mushrooms and toast


For those of you who can’t resist a cooked breakfast at the weekends try this. It really is a healthy twist on a traditional fried breakfast. Grill the bacon, tomatoes and large, flat field mushrooms - there you go, a healthy cooked breakfast!


Healthy breakfast 6: Crumpets and fruit spread


Crumpets are a starchy food (they should be the basis of every meal). The only problem with crumpets is the tendency to add lots of butter to them. Try a fruit spread, a great way to top them without adding all the calories and fat in butter.


Healthy breakfast 7: Muesli and soya milk or low-fat milk


Swiss-style muesli has milk powder added to it, which increases the calcium content of this healthy breakfast cereal. Add calcium-enriched soya milk or semi-skimmed milk and you have a bone-friendly breakfast!


Healthy breakfast 8: Pure fruit juice and iron-fortified breakfast cereal


Next time you are in the cereal aisle at the supermarket, spare a few minutes to check out the labeling on the packets. Not all cereals are equal when it comes to the vitamins and minerals that are added to them. Iron is a mineral that is added to many healthy cereals such as sultana bran or bran flakes. Also drink a glass of pure fruit juice such as orange or grapefruit as the vitamin C that the juice contains helps your body to absorb the iron more easily.


Healthy breakfast 9: Smoothie

If you really can’t face breakfast try to have a smoothie instead. If you fancy trying to make one yourself (easy if you have a hand blender) then fruits such as berries, apples and bananas are great with some milk. All those antioxidant vitamins in the fruit help boost your immunity and make for a great healthy breakfast.


Healthy breakfast 10: Scrambled or poached egg on Granary toast

Eggs are not bad for us! It is what you do with them that can make them bad. Poaching or scrambling eggs with a little milk is a good way to incorporate them into your dietthey provide valuable protein. Scrambled eggs on toast is a much better healthy breakfast choice over a fried egg sandwich. Read more on realbuzz.com...
