A main challenge with eating healthy in the morning is that you don’t always have time to prepare a nutritious meal.
This is a time when you need something quick so it can be tempting to just eat whatever you find and rush out the door. Or not eat at all.
That should not be the case.
To help you get the nutrients you need to start off your day with the right amount of energy, here are five simple breakfast meal ideas worth a try:Whole grain peanut butter toast
White bread doesn’t really do anything for our bodies from a nutritional standpoint. It might taste good but instead of nourishing your body, it contributes to a number of health problems including unwanted weight gain.
Brown bread might be slightly better but the best option to go for is whole bread. With whole bread you’re getting real benefits and it still tastes good toasted. Add more benefits by applying some peanut butter or almond butter if you like, then toast.

If you haven’t considered having porridge in years, now is the right time to start preparing some. It’s filling and it also gives you a good amount of complex carbs to keep you going through the day.
A good option would be brown porridge and if you’re looking for something extra, you can mix in some cassava flour, sweet potato flour and other ingredients for a super nutritious breakfast treat.

Many people would choose to eat cereal instead of oatmeal for breakfast. But the reality is that most cereals contain added sugar and they don’t have as many benefits as oats.
Oatmeal is a quick and healthy option that you should definitely try. You can add some fresh fruits like bananas and boost the flavor by sprinkling some cinnamon and honey.
