Healthy Breakfast Options

I have to leave my house at 6:05 am to go to work. I cannot make myself eat that early in the morning, so I take a granola bar or something with. I know breakfast is the most important meal of the day but I don’t have time to make anything to eat. Does anyone have a good breakfast bar, quick meal that you can make the night before and heat it up, or anything? I have to take a vitamin in the morning, and it has to go with food, otherwise I would just skip breakfast (which is a no no). Thank you for your help! Candice. [via Ask Questions]

True, healthy breakfast options are not easy to find and in your case, it is even trickier to recommend something that would qualify as healthy breakfast options, because you do not have enough time in the morning to prepare breakfast in the first place.

The good thing is that you are well aware of how important the breakfast is. So let’s see what your healthy breakfast options are.

Reluctant healthy breakfast options I am talking about breakfast cereals. Check them out, they are not bad, but not my first choice. Another option is a protein bar. They are also tricky, though. Most of them are not good and those that are good are not sold at major stores. That said, there are some exceptions – check out Best Nutrition Bars – if those bars do not work for you, Atkins bars are okay. Another option is Metabolic Drive Protein Bars (they are available only online and I like them more than any other bars).

The best healthy breakfast options How about a protein omelet? You can prepare it ahead of time and heat it up at work in a microwave. But from all healthy breakfast options, the one that will probably work the best is the combination of oatmeal and protein.

Cook oatmeal at home (use only steel cut oats). At a little bit of water and reheat at work in a microwave, add quality protein powder, mix with a spoon and eat. It is a perfect combination that gives you complex carbohydrates, fiber and protein.

Another option that I like is a sandwich made with whole grain bread, nitrate-free lunch meats and veggies (think lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes, etc).

What are the other healthy breakfast options? A plain yogurt mixed with protein powder, cottage cheese mixed with protein powder, hard-boiled eggs with veggies, canned sardines, tuna or salmon with veggies.
