How To Eat Breakfast That Is Good For Your Brain
1.Avoid processed fruit juices. Processed fruit juices such as, apple, orange, grape, cranberry, and other juices, are shown to have high levels of sugar, and sometimes even higher than soda. Instead, make your own natural fruit juices. For example, squeezing fresh oranges in the morning is a healthy alternative
Make sure to limit juice to 4-6 oz per day, even when it is fresh squeezed. You won't benefit from the fiber in fruit if you are only drinking the juice.
2.Use fresh ingredients when possible. Whenever possible, buy fresh ingredients like fresh fruits, vegetables, eggs, and bread. Fresh ingredients mean nutrients, and nutrients mean good brain health.
3.Cook more often. Buying fresh ingredients will ensure that you cook more often. By cooking more often, you will spend less money on pre-packaged, processed foods. To cook more often, set a cooking goal for yourself. Tell yourself that you will cook a fresh breakfast at least 3 times a week, for example. This can include cooking eggs, making oatmeal or an omelet, or even quiche for breakfast.
You can also prep your breakfasts the night or weekend before to save time. For example, you can bake your own whole grain muffins on Sunday night so you can have them available for the week ahead.
Try making overnight oats. Soak your oats in any kind of liquid, i.e.,juice or milk
