What I will say, rather will ask is, are you munching all day on a various assortment of food? If you just said YES. Continue to read on!
When you skip breakfast, you’re going 12+ hours of not eating. But then the bewitching hour where you can’t run off your planned meeting and chomp down a meal. So, you’ll try to rush in several snacks between 8 AM – 3 PM to just to subside the hunger since they are easy to grab and better then nothing.
And let’s be honest, your choices wouldn’t be considered as good as a fully prepared breakfast. Rather, it’s going to be Doritos, Cheetos, Pringles, M&M’s, Chips Ahoy Chocolate Chip Cookies, Oreo’s! Those savory food items that you just love eating and almost feel as if you’re going out of control around. First, don’t beat yourself up if this is you! Rather, I want you to shift your focus on the possibility of the following tips.
If you block a little time for yourself in the morning you can put together a breakfast that will take you literally 3-minutes to prepare and it’ll have enough healthy fat, fiber and protein to prevent you from wanting to munch all the time!

Protein: This provides complex energy source that fuels your brain and slows the rate of digestion and absorption leaving you satisfied and content.
Whole Grain: This can be anything that you most like, look for packaged containers that have 5g per servings on the back of label because it leaves you fuller for a longer period of time. It also helps with
Calcium: Young or old, this is a mineral that helps to fortify and prevent bone breakdown through the ages. This can come in your favorite cheese, dairy/dairy alternative or a juice that must state “Fortified with Calcium and Vitamin D. Typically in the morning this is when we gravitate towards food items that contain Calcium in them.
So, let’s put all of this together and you’ve got an open face breakfast sandwich! If you want to make it into two-open faced sandwiches go right ahead, I had one because I wasn’t 100% hungry for two. You would just double the below! Place them in the toasted for 2-minutes until the cheese has lightly melted.
1/4 avocado, sliced
1 hard boiled egg, halved
1-2 slices of your favorite cheese (personally I just love pepper jack)
1 slice, your favorite whole grain bread
