What’s for breakfast?

Experts have long stressed the importance of breakfast as part of a healthy lifestyle, saying that first morning meal kicks off your metabolism and sets the tone for the day.

With the popularity of intermittent fasting, some people delay that first bite. But the timing of your meal doesn’t negate the importance of making sure it has the essential nutrients your body needs: Complex carbohydrates for instant energy, protein to keep you going and fiber to help you feel fuller longer.

You should also choose your ingredients wisely so you know what you’re putting into your body. Avoid processed foods, opting for whole foods instead. Using organic ingredients when possible is also a wise decision. Organic food is fresher, has fewer pesticides, is non-GMO and has more nutrients than their non-organic counterparts. Plus, organic farming is better for the environment.

Supplements can increase nutrient levels

You can also consider powder supplements to easily increase the nutrient level of your meal without adding a lot of extra preparation steps, such as Nutrilite™ Organics Plant Protein Powders or Nutrilite Organics Superfood Powders.

The Plant Protein Powders can help balance out a meal that’s missing protein, while the Superfood Powders supply beneficial plant nutrients while supporting other aspects of your health, like energy, digestion or your immune system.†

We know it’s easy to fall into a rut when it comes to breakfast, so we we’ve collected a few recipes to help shake up your palate and make your first meal of the day filled with nutrients—no matter when you choose to eat it.
