Breakfast - The Most Important Meal of the Day

Eating a balanced breakfast in the morning provides you with the energy and nutrients that lead to increased concentration, motivation and productivity at work. It also helps with overall wellness and helping to maintain a healthy body weight.

Here's 6 simple tips on how you can incorporate a healthy breakfast into your day:

  • Pick 2-3 foods, including at least one from each of the following food groups:
    -Bread and grain (i.e.cereal, toast, muffin)
    -Milk product (i.e. low-fat yogurt, low-fat milk)
    -Fruit or vegetable group (i.e bananas, apples, carrots)
    You can order all breakfast supplies for healthier staff, from your office fruit supplier :)
  • You should stock foods like fruit, low-fat yogurt, whole grain breakfast bars, or granola bars for those mornings when you have to eat breakfast on the go. When your fridge has healthy foods in you're most likely to grab those on the go, rather than stop by the cafe!
  • Replace or accompany that morning cup of coffee with a glass of fresh orange juice.
  • Use that time spent flicking through your iphone in bed and get up 15 minutes earlier. You can prepare and eat a healthy breakfast in 15 minutes or less. If you don't feel like eating straight away, get into work early and nibble away at your cereal whilst getting ahead on your emails.
  • Plan ahead to eat breakfast. This means you should decide what you are going to eat for breakfast before the next morning. Write it down - make a weekly meal chart and stick to your healthy regime. You can save time by putting out the box of cereal (if you do not have a curious cat) or cutting up some fruit the night before.
  • Need to get a post-gym protein fix? Make an omelette in ten minutes! You can shorten preparation time by chopping up your vegetables the night before work.
