The Breakfast of Champions

If you’re one of the 63% of Australians that wake up without feeling energised, we get it.

Whether you’re not getting enough sleep, feeling too much stress, or dealing with the myriad impacts of the world as it is right now, there seems to be more need than ever for an energy boost. But here’s the good news: Eating a nutritious and balanced breakfast can help jumpstart your energy for the day while keeping you full and focused as you work, play, or create.

Eating lethargy-inducing foods at breakfast, or skipping the meal altogether, could have you playing catch-up on your energy needs later in the day — and it could also lead to more serious health issues over the long term.

Nutritious food is one of the greatest tools we have in building and maintaining energy throughout the day, not to mention helping build healthy sleep habits at the end of the day.

So, what are the essential elements of an energizing breakfast?

Energy is created from the three main macronutrients: carbohydrates, protein, and fats. Complex carbs, such as fruit and whole grains, will provide more sustained energy than simple carbs that do not contain fibre. 

Adding the following energy-boosting foods to your breakfast menu can help you get through the day in a delicious and energising way.

  • Bananas
  • Cottage cheese
  • Eggs
  • Oatmeal
  • Nut butter
  • Greek yogurt
  • Avocado
  • Green smoothie (if you’re into smoothies)
  • Chia seeds
  • Whole grains
  • Coconut
  • Sweet potatoes 
  • Watermelon 
  • Apples 
  • Goji berries 
  • Oranges 
  • Strawberries 
  • Flax seeds 
  • Chickpeas 

When it comes to an energy-boosting breakfast, it’s important to incorporate  nutritious foods that combine slowly digested carbohydrates, healthy fats, and protein.

Fibre, vitamins, essential nutrients, fats, and proteins are all essential for energy, so focus on creating a balanced meal with foods from the list above. 

In addition to food, water is crucial to all cellular functions, including energy production. Make sure to drink enough water and stay hydrated throughout the day to avoid feeling tired and sluggish.

There are millions of healthy breakfast recipes out there, find a few you like the sound of (and are easy enough to fit in with your morning routine) and give them a go.  There are plenty you can prepare the night before or even freeze prep. 

The right breakfast will make a huge impact on your energy levels and how you approach your day.
