Healthy Breakfast Meal Preparation

Healthy Breakfast Meal PreparationExperts agree that a healthy breakfast is the most important meal of the day – especially for children. If you’re a mom or dad who wants to give the kids (and yourself) delicious healthy breakfasts, there are a few things that might make the meal prep process go smoother and faster.

On busy mornings when you barely have time to look in the pantry for ideas, it’s nice to have a plan. Pre-planning the breakfast meal can make the usual morning hassles run much smoother and you’ll feel better all day because you know you and your family got the fuel they needed to perform the best they can – whether in school or at the job.

Use ingredients such as whole grains, low-fat dairy and protein and fruits and veggies to ensure a tasty and healthy breakfast to tide you over until lunchtime, keep you from using the drive-thru at a fast food place, increase productivity and alertness and spending money needlessly.

Your first thought in breakfast planning and prep is to gather some well-made and FDA approved storage containers and bags. Then, take a few minutes to plan meal that you and your family will enjoy.

This will help immensely when you head to the grocery for the ingredients. Make a list of ingredients you’ll need for the recipes and pay attention to the staples that you can purchase in bulk and the sales, if any, on items you’ll need.

An evening or a day (depending on the prep times for recipes) should be all you need to prep the breakfast meals. Prepping may consist of boiling grains such as oatmeal, slicing and washing fruits and cooking some complete breakfasts in advance so you can add fruit and other items to make it complete.

A good idea for an easy prep breakfast which can be grabbed at the last minute before you leave in the morning include baked oatmeal, a great source of fiber and a good tool for lowering cholesterol.

Find a good variety of recipes and prepare them ahead. Use your blender to whip up delicious fruit smoothies using fresh fruits such as bananas, mango and blueberries. Add extra nutritional value with veggies such as cucumber and yogurt or coconut milk to make it creamy.

Bagels are exceptional healthy breakfast choices. Make or add low-fat spreads to enhance the flavor and nutritional value or add an egg, spinach and turkey bacon to make it tasty and filling.
