How often do you skip breakfast? Many people don’t make eating a nutritious morning meal a priority, even though they know they should. A healthy breakfast—ideally eaten within an hour of waking—helps fuel the body and mind, providing essential nutrients to start the day. It’s also important for maintaining weight, increasing concentration and productivity and supporting overall health.
If the reason you’re not eating breakfast is a hectic schedule, try waking up 15 minutes earlier. Or better yet, prepare your meal the night before. This recipe for Baked Banana Oatmeal with Walnuts and Raisins can be refrigerated or easily packed in resealable containers for breakfast on the go.
You’ve heard it a million times: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I can’t emphasize enough how true this is. After you’ve slept for seven to eight hours, taking in zero food or drink, your body needs the right fuel to get moving again.
Breakfast should be planned, just like any other meal. Grabbing something without putting thought into it usually means you’ll end up eating too much sugar and not enough nutrients. It’s always best to start the day with a high-quality meal that supplies healthy protein and carbohydrates.
Kale, both the curly and flat-leaf or the dinosaur varieties, is one of the greatest leafy green vegetables. Belonging to the same family as cabbage, collard greens and Brussels sprouts, kale is loaded with nutrition, and it makes the perfect addition to a wide variety of dishes, especially those containing robust meats or spicy flavors.
Most of the time, kale is enjoyed cooked. But in this recipe for Rubbed Kale Salad, raw, tenderized greens are combined with buttery avocado, sweet bell peppers, carrots and crunchy, toasted almonds. It’s the perfect side dish for a Labor Day gathering—and can be prepared in advance for a stress-free holiday side dish.
