5 Foods That Will Energize Your Mornings

Waking up is hard. People usually find their energy once they’ve walked for a little bit, had a shower and their morning coffee. But breakfast can also play a part in your morning routine.

People have a mixed relationship with breakfast, some of them being unable to start their day without it and others needing a few hours to pass in order to ingest food. If you have some trouble getting up in the morning, breakfast can provide you with a necessary energy boost, especially when you eat the right foods, which don’t even have to be heavy or caloric. Here are five of the best of them:

Honey

Honey is a great morning food, very malleable and delicious. Look for honey products that are 100% natural, that way you’ll avoid additives and chemicals. Honey can be added in to almost any breakfast meal, helping you avoid sugar in your oatmeal or yogurt. It’ll also prevent a sugar crash and leave you with a burst of lasting energy.

Salmon

Salmon is a typical breakfast food even if it isn’t the first one that comes to mind when you first wake up in the morning. It’s a meal that packs tons of nutrients and vitamins like B12, which fights off fatigue and boosts your energy naturally. Look for simple recipes containing salmon, that won’t feel fancy and will be quick and easy to make. It’s also important to get the habit of eating savory things for breakfast, since these meals tend to be significantly healthier than the more common and sugary alternative.

Oats

While oats are not the most fun of foods – they’re flakey and taste a little bit like dirt – they are very flexible and can easily transform into something yummy when paired with the right compliments. With some milk, fruits and honey your oats will stop tasting like oats and will transform into a filling dish packed with fiber and antioxidants.

Greek Yogurt

Many experts believe that regular yogurt should be replaced with this alternative. This type of food is easy to eat on the go while also packing healthy carbohydrates, fat and protein. If you have a little more time on your hands, you can compliment your greek yogurt with fruits, oats, cereals, and more, resulting in something more filling and delicious.

Eggs

Eggs are the most traditional of breakfast foods for a reason. They’re extremely flexible and are rich in proteins and B vitamins, which are a large influence on your enzymes which in turn will be able to break down your energy much more efficiently.
