What Is a Healthy Breakfast?
A healthy breakfast is a balanced breakfast. According to Denis Faye, M.S. and Beachbody’s executive director of nutrition, a balanced breakfast is one that has a mix of carbs, protein, and fat.
That mix can vary a little depending on your needs and goals. “If your goal is to stay satiated, you may benefit by upping the protein and leaning more toward eggs, Greek yogurt, or a protein drink like Shakeology as a part of your breakfast,” says Faye.
“On the other hand, if you’re working out within an hour or so or you’re super-active and burn through a lot of calories every day, you might try a breakfast higher in carbs. Waffles, anyone?”
Protein-based breakfast foods include: Eggs, Shakeology, meat, tofu, and yogurt.
Carb-based breakfast foods include: Oatmeal and other grain-based foods such as whole-grain pancakes, muffins, and waffles.
