8 Healthy Ways to Start Your Day

By JulieVR |

Your mom was right – it is important to start your day with a good breakfast. Breaking your fast upon waking helps kick start your metabolism, providing energy and much-needed nutrients to get you through your day. If your mornings tend to be rushed, planning ahead or coming up with a few simple standbys will ensure your family gets out the door with a little something to keep them performing at their peak until lunchtime.

These recipes are simple, and many can be made ahead and frozen. If you’re in a pinch, even a glass of milk and a banana will provide a good balance of protein, carbohydrates and fats to get you – or your kids – going in the morning.
