Healthy Breakfast on the Run: How to Make One and Why

Do you have a healthy breakfast on the run? Or are you skipping it and making less healthy choices? Mornings are tough. I’m not going to lie to you about that. Morning is the most hectic time of day, and it’s too easy to put your own needs on the back burner. As tempting as it is, it’s important that we put our health at the front of our priorities so we can continue to care for ourselves and others.

Healthy Breakfast on the Run

The most important meal of the day is breakfast. Whoever told you that fact was entirely correct. Breakfast is the meal that starts us off on the right track. Here are a few reasons why breakfast is such an important meal.

Energy Levels

Breakfast immediately raises your energy level and helps stabilize your blood glucose level. It’s important to get some sort of carbohydrate with breakfast to refuel your muscular and nervous systems. However, it’s vital that we choose complex carbohydrates rather than overly processed carbohydrates to ensure that the energy release happens over an extended period of time. Otherwise, we may feel a crash or slump mid-morning. Try a bowl of whole grain oatmeal with a scoop of PlantFusion Protein Powder. The added protein will help you stay full until lunch.

Lower Cortisol

Cortisol is the body’s stress hormone. It helps your body use sugar and fat and manage stress. Cortisol production peaks around the middle of the night and early morning. So, it’s important to lower the cortisol levels first thing in the morning. Cortisol that is stored rather than eliminated will turn to fat especially in your stomach area. Raised cortisol levels over time can lead to obesity. The protein in PlantFusion is perfect for muscle energy, managing appetite, and overall recovery from exercise and daily stress.

Willpower

When I’m hungry, I’m more likely to make unhealthy food choices. By eating a breakfast that is high in protein, I have more willpower to resist unhealthy foods. I know that when I skip breakfast, I’m more tempted by that cheese danish at my business meeting or the call of an iced coffee as I run errands. A healthy breakfast will help me resist these poor food choices, and a breakfast high in protein will keep you full longer.

    Breakfast is always the hardest meal for me. I spend so much time getting my kids ready in the morning that it seems like the easiest thing to do is grab something that's not healthy.
  2. Yogurt and protein powder has always worked for me and I've had gut issues for years. I used to preach that breakfast was the most important meal of the day, back in the 80s when I was a nutritionist, but found for me and my poor gut, brunch seems to work better. As long as I don't have to take meds and too many supplements (probiotics work for me), I'm happy and so is my gut. Eating is so individual, so it stands to reason, one concept is not going to work for everyone. Wish I had understood that years ago when I was counseling, but that's what they taught. Back when we just had four food groups, ha, ha!
