12 Healthy Breakfast Foot Options. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, or so they say. After all, it’s designed to be the first meal you eat after waking up in the morning; in other words, when you have breakfast, you’re literally breaking your fast from the night before. As for what’s supposed to go into a healthy breakfast, there seem to be at least a few food choices that people agree on for their morning routines: eggs, oatmeal, fruit, tea and coffee are all popular choices. But do these choices really constitute a “balanced” breakfast? That’s a question that we here at Bestie want answered.

Which came first, the chicken or the egg? Regardless of the answer, one thing we know for sure is that eggs are a nutritious addition to any breakfast. In addition to helping your body maintain steady blood sugar and insulin levels, eating eggs also promotes feelings of long-lasting fullness, reducing your overall calorie intake by making you less likely to overeat when your next meal rolls around.
2. Greek Yogurt
Like eggs, Greek yogurt is considered an excellent source of protein, as well as being another food which leaves you feeling full and reduces feelings of hunger. If that wasn’t enough, full-fat yogurts such as Greek yogurt are also a source of what’s known as conjugated linoleic acid, or CLA; if that name sounds scary to you, it shouldn’t: CLA is believed to be useful for promoting weight loss, as well as reducing the risk of certain cancers, such as breast cancer.
Okay, cards on the table: we here at Bestie have previously made videos discussing the benefits of living caffeine-free. However, in an effort to show both sides of the argument, we’d be doing you a disservice if we didn’t also mention some of the healthier aspects of coffee as well.
Okay, we’ll be the first to admit that oatmeal isn’t exactly the most exciting food to wake up to in the morning. But what oatmeal lacks in pizazz, it makes up for in nutritional benefits. For starters, the oats used to make oatmeal contain a unique type of fiber known as oat beta-glucan, which has been found to help reduce cholesterol, among other things. Oats are also high in antioxidants which can potentially help prevent conditions such as heart disease and high blood pressure. For those of you who can enjoy oatmeal, try serving it with milk instead of water for an extra boost of protein.
5. Chia Seeds
Need a high-fiber way to start your day? Look no further, chia seeds have got your back. In just a little under 30 grams of chia seeds, you can find a whopping 11 grams of fiber, which can not only reduce feelings of hunger but can also help maintain healthy blood sugar and blood pressure levels. Like most of the other foods on this list, chia seeds are also a beneficial source of antioxidants, and are versatile enough to be a tasty ingredient in a number of different recipes. Try adding a scoop of protein to a chia seed pudding for an extra nutritional boost.
Berries are probably one of the healthiest foods that you can eat. They’re so healthy, in fact, that we’ve already made a whole video on the health benefits you can expect from eating berries every day; be sure to check it out!
Even though many types of nuts are seemingly high in calories, this is mitigated by the fact that studies seem to show that your body doesn’t fully absorb all the fat in them; in a 28 gram serving of almonds, for example, your body would only actually end up absorbing about 129 of those calories, while still feeling relatively full and satisfied.
8. Green Tea
For those of you who don’t want to drink coffee, there are other ways to get a healthy dosage of caffeine. One of these alternative caffeine options is green tea. In addition to helping with alertness and mental performance, green tea is also believed to help prevent diabetes by reducing blood sugar and insulin levels in your body. I guess it really is easy being green after all.
