FacebookTwitterGoogle+Share

People are always complaining that they have no time to make breakfast in the morning or they don’t feel like eating in the morning. So these are my top breakfast ideas that will give your morning a boost! They are fast, easy, and healthy most importantly. Whether you eat breakfast at home or school or work, it is important to break the fast from not eating for 5-8 hours. Although, you should drink a glass of water (with lemon optional) or a shot of Apple Cider Vinegar to jump-start your morning before eating breakfast. Breakfast should be packed with carbohydrates (energy), protein (keep you full longer), and vitamins (easily absorbed). If you have a healthy breakfast, chances are, you’ll eat healthier throughout the day.
