Switch Up Your Breakfast Meal With These Healthy Alternatives

Wondering how to have a balanced and healthy diet? The Goodwill Market is one with you in planning and achieving your fitness goals! We rounded up a list of healthy alternatives you’ll love to try out.

Let's admit it: we all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Although preparing a morning meal can often become a rushed or skipped activity may lead to unhealthy eating patterns. Sometimes, the most common foods we eat so we won't start the day on an empty stomach aren't even the healthiest options. It's essential to acknowledge that part of staying fit and healthy is to create simple habits you can stick with — one of them is eating a nutritious breakfast. Remember that having breakfast will always be an essential part of your morning ritual as it sets your mood for the day.

What are the benefits of eating breakfast?

  1. It sets you in a good mood

    What we do first thing in the morning typically sets our mood for the rest of the day. By positively eating a healthy breakfast, we learn to respect our bodies, take care of our health, and that we deserve to enjoy a good life.

  2. Boosts your brain and performance

    Refueling your body with breakfast can help boost your performance at work and school. Several studies have shown that children who eat breakfast are more creative and active, while adults have also performed better mentally and physically.

  3. Promotes heart health

    Breakfast and heart health go hand-in-hand. Eating a good breakfast is a great way to give your heart a boost to start off your day. When you skip breakfast, you make yourself more susceptible to conditions such as obesity and diabetes, leading to heart disease.

  4. Balances blood sugar levels

    Breakfast helps your body break down glucose better as it kickstarts your metabolism and gives you a head start to manage your blood sugar levels better.

  5. Helps you make better food choices

    Practicing the habit of eating breakfast every day will undoubtedly lead to mastery and exploration in the food you want to intake. Learning more about the food you eat helps you understand what's healthy, leading to making better food choices.
