They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and although all meals are important, there is something to be said for getting your breakfast right and making sure it does what you want it to do for you. The main reason breakfast isn’t something to be rushed and should never be skipped is that it kickstarts your metabolism after you’ve been asleep all night, boosts your energy levels, and sets the tone for the day ahead.

If you find that you’re just not awake in the morning, even by the time you get to work or start your day, and if you feel that by lunchtime, you’ve fallen into a slump and lost your energy, then it could be your breakfast that’s the issue. With that in mind, let’s take a look at how to make your breakfast work for you.

Get Hydrated

When you’re thinking of how to make your breakfast work for you, your mind will probably go straight to what food you need to have, and although that is crucial, of course, it’s just as important to think about hydration – after all, if you’re dehydrated, eating well isn’t going to give you the results you’re looking for.

The best thing to do is to drink a glass of water before you do anything else in the morning, and that will help your body feel energised and healthy – after that, you can go about your morning routine and make your breakfast, which should include a drink. If you have to have coffee or tea, trying switching from cow’s milk to oat milk, or, even better, enjoy an oat drink to stay healthy and improve your gut health.

Include Protein

You can include many things in your breakfast, but protein is a really important element, so try to have at least a little every morning. Don’t worry, you don’t have to have a big plate of steak or a load of sausages and bacon (although once in a while, something like that can be a lovely breakfast!) because protein comes from all kinds of things, and not just meat.

In fact, you can get protein from lots of things that make an ideal breakfast, including eggs, Greek yoghurt, tofu, or peanut butter which you can spread on your morning toast or bagel, for example. As you can see, adding protein to your breakfast isn’t hard and could be a delicious way to try new recipes.

Plan Ahead

One of the biggest reasons people tend to skip breakfast or rush through it and eat unhealthy food that isn’t going to give you the energy you need is time – or lack of it. That’s why it’s a good idea to plan ahead as much as possible and ensure you can have breakfast daily.

If there are ingredients to add to your breakfast, prep them the night before and store them in the fridge, and then all you have to do is cook them, for example – that’s going to save a lot of time. Plus, make sure you only have healthy options available so that if you are in a rush for any reason, you won’t pick the wrong food.
