The best foods to eat for Breakfast

The next time you rush out the door in the morning without something to eat, consider this: Skipping breakfast can set you up for overeating later in the day. A healthy a.m. meal, on the other hand, can give you energy, satisfy your appetite, and set the stage for smart decisions all day long. The ideal breakfast is one that combines carbs, fiber and protein.

Here is a list of some of the best items to consume for breakfast:

Greek Yoghurt:

Yoghurt is full with calcium and proteins, and helps you feel full throughout the morning without the need to eat snacks here and there. The best yoghurts are the low fat ones with a kind of fruits to add taste and vitamins to your meal.

Bananas:

This fruit is one of the best sources of resistant starch, a healthy carbohydrate that keeps you feeling fuller longer. Add it to your shakes or any meal you’re having as a substitute sweetener.

Eggs:

Eggs are a great source of protein and nutrients such as vitamin D, and are delicious as they can be cooked in so many ways with as many vegetables and proteins add-ons.

Watermelon:

As its name suggests, watermelon is an excellent way to hydrate in the morning. What's less well known is this juicy fruit is among the best sources of lycopene—a nutrient found in red fruits and vegetables that's important for vision, heart health, and cancer prevention.

Strawberries:

Berries are superfoods because they're so high in antioxidants without being high in calories. One cup of strawberries, for instance, contains your full recommended daily intake of vitamin C, along with high quantities of folic acid and fiber.
