You’ve probably heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but what you might not know is what you have for breakfast is just as important. Do you know what’s worse than not eating breakfast? Eating something unhealthy. That’s right, sugar-laden breakfast options that pretend to be healthy (I’m looking at your cereal or instant oats packet) can be just as bad as skipping it altogether.

But first, let’s cover a few basics:
What Is A Healthy Breakfast?
I’ll tell you what isn’t a healthy breakfast first. Coffee, sugar, or any combination of the two. That is a sure way to cause fluctuating energy levels and sugar cravings GALORE. What should you focus on instead?
Protein is UBER important at breakfast. If you don’t have any protein at breakfast you might as well not eat breakfast, it’s THAT important. Protein prevents energy crashes, minimizes cravings, and keeps you fuller for longer. Read more about what the best sources of protein are here.
Healthy fat is also UBER important at breakfast because it also helps to keep you full. Healthy fats also support optimal hormone health which is crucial for feeling and looking your best. You can read more about sources of healthy fat here.
Complex carbs contain more fiber, protein, and nutrients than simple carbs (like refined flours.) A moderate dose of carbohydrates help to power you through your morning and perform at your best. Fruit, veggies, potatoes, and whole grains are your best options here, geta a fully comprehensive list of the best quality carbs here.
Any time you can sneak in extra veggies at breakfast you are setting yourself up for a win. That being said I don’t think veggies are required to make breakfast healthy.
