These great healthy breakfast recipes will get your day off to a good start. Many studies have shown that breakfast is the most important meal of the day in terms of energy and brain function. Those who eat breakfast perform consistently better on cognitive tests and report having more energy than those who skip it. Of course, a healthy breakfast does not consist of donuts and Cap’n Crunch (tasty as those may be), but a nutritious meal that provides you with plenty of long-term energy that will help get your day started on the right foot.

A study performed by researchers at Harvard University of over 2,800 people found that subjects who ate breakfast on a regular basis reduced their risk of having problems with their blood sugar by half, in comparison with those who did not eat breakfast regularly. Problems with blood sugar can lead to diabetes and can raise cholesterol levels, which increases your risk of heart disease.

Because so many breakfast foods are healthy, it's easy to eat well. Ditch the sugary cereals and pastries in favor of eggs, fruit, organic dairy and whole grains. Eggs provide lots of nutrition in the form of protein and minerals, with few calories, and there are a host of ways you can cook them, from scrambled eggs to omelettes. Whole grain breads and cereals provide fiber and B vitamins, and adding a few servings of fruit and dairy in the form of juices or smoothies will give you a good supply of calcium, vitamins and antioxidants.

As a time-saving tip, before you go to bed at night, plan what to have for breakfast the next morning. Set out any non-perishable ingredients, and set the breakfast table. Some things can even be made ahead of time and put in the refriegerator overnight, such as pancake batter. This way, your breakfast is half prepared already and you will not be as likely to skip it because you are rushed.
