5 Healthy On-the-Go Breakfasts for the Snooze Button Lovers Among Us
1. Hard-boiled eggs with pear slices wrapped in prosciutto.
Eggs are portable, delicious, and packed with protein and good fats. Plus, the protein and fat from your eggs and meat will blunt the effects that the sugar from your pear has on your metabolism.
Fortunately, pears are relatively low on the glycemic index (GI) scale, a measure of how much it’ll affect your blood sugar and insulin levels. Why does this matter? Because high GI foods, like bananas, mangoes, grapes, and dates), can spike your blood sugars to higher levels, which can inhibit fat burning and lead to mind-numbing sugar crashes.
Other low GI fruits to have in the morning include strawberries, grapefruit, and cantaloupe.
2. Fruit and a veggie protein shake.
Shakes are the perfect solution for getting a high dose of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants without having to actually sit down and eat a meal. Blend up some water, produce (try blueberries, strawberries, spinach, and/or kale), a scoop of your favorite protein powder, and a tablespoon of coconut oil for a full complete meal that will prevent those mid-morning hunger pangs.
