9 healthy recipes to break your breakfast routine

9 healthy recipes to break your breakfast routine 0

Staying on track toward your fitness goals can be hard. Meal prepping should be easier. We wanted to help you get your day started right with some healthy breakfast recipes!
 
Abs are made in the kitchen, not at the gym. That's why we picked some of our favorite recipes to make healthy eating yummy.

Hash

Hearty breakfasts can be filling and re-heated for another day! Don't be afraid to try out a hash, especially one filled with protein.

Caramelized pork hash

While this one might require some leftover pork, feel free to substitute with a protein of your choice! The mixture of Brussels sprouts, carrots, sweet potatoes, and onions will keep your taste buds happy throughout the week.

Caramelized sweet potato apple hash

Paleo and Whole 30 friendly, you can serve this up any day of the week. If you want to add some additional protein, look at adding some breakfast sausage or eggs to the mix.

Bakes

Put it all together on Sunday and enjoy a warm morning meal all week that incorporates fruit and natural sweeteners. Both recipes are vegan and can be made gluten free!

Berry crumble breakfast bake

Make individual servings or a larger batch of the crumble. Enjoy on-the-go or with your cup of joe at home.

Easy protein banana muffins

Bananas for breakfast are good. A banana muffin can be even better! Whip these up for some grab and go bites.

Smoothies & Bowls

While you can't completely meal prep smoothies, you can set aside the ingredients in individual containers for the week! Put all the dry ingredients into individual servings and then add the wet ingredients for blending in the morning.

Tropical probiotic smoothie

Mango, coconut and pineapple all blend together for a smoothie that's good for your gut! Combining your dose of citrus with kefir packs a great jolt.

Persimmon-pomegranate quinoa breakfast bowl

Like hot oats but with quinoa! Instead of a warm bowl of oatmeal, spice up your oatmeal with quinoa, pomegranate, persimmon, and cinnamon.

Cinnamon quinoa breakfast bowl

Instead of persimmon and pomegranate, think peaches and raspberries. A different take on the quinoa breakfast bowl (and I'm sure there's more) will make this a new staple.

And More!

Need a quick boost with almost no prep? Toast is the way to go. We found 21 ways to make your toast and each one is delicious.

 

A chia berry paleo parfait sounds like too much fun to pass up! Put it together the night before and enjoy a parfait in the morning.

Healthy habits to start cultivating right now

Healthy habits to start cultivating right now 0

Want to get started living a healthier life? The first steps include taking care of yourself mentally and physically.

 

Several ways to get started living a healthier lifestyle include:

Eat breakfast

They always said it was the most important meal of the day for a reason. Don't skip out on getting your metabolism jump started in the morning.

 

Choose something nutritious and with a mixture of carbs and protein to keep you fuller longer!

Workout

Your workout doesn't have to be heavy lifting at the gym. Go for a walk in the bar, a bike ride around the neighborhood, or a swim in the apartment pool. Find something that works for you and your schedule so you can make this a long-lasting habit.

 

Need more motivation? Try a group fitness class, small group training, or personal training. Even just having a gym buddy will help keep you accountable.

Get your body moving

An object at rest stays at rest. Start small by getting yourself moving more often. Get up from your desk and walk around, do some yoga in your space, or even try a chair workout.

 

Small changes can have a big impact: like taking the stairs instead of an elevator. Incorporating more movement into your routine will help you develop more active habits.

Drink more water

While this seems obvious, it may not be happening often enough. By staying hydrated, we can avoid feeling drowsy, tired, or unwell.

 

Avoid sugary drinks when you could be having a glass of water. Sugary choices may taste good but will lead to you crash later, can increase cravings, and are empty calories.

Think positively

Thoughts have the power to shape our lives, so they're worth paying attention to. Notice how your thoughts affect your feelings and outcomes. Then, start trying to address any negative thoughts that keep occurring.

 

Some ways to help boost your happiness include showing gratitude, meditation, and random acts of kindness. Showing gratitude to others, possibly through random acts, can help boost your mood and help you focus on other people rather than your own negativity. Pull yourself out of a funk with meditation as well, even 2 minutes a day to reflect on what you're grateful for can reset your attitude.

Choose a smart scale: 3 reasons to ditch your traditional scale

Choose a smart scale: 3 reasons to ditch your traditional scale 0

As the trend of monitoring health and wellness continues to rise, smart scales are part of the wave of the future. While a traditional digital scale may provide the same weight information as a smart scale, a smart scale can provide a much deeper insight into health. Rather than focusing on just weight, which can be misleading when looking at overall health, smart scales provide additional metrics that can provide a more holistic picture.

Smart scales are superior traditional scales in tracking, metrics, and insight.

Tracking

Remember putting your weight goals down on pen and paper? Having a consistent look into your weight over time meant developing your own tracking system over weeks and months. It may have even included a food journal, a lot of work to maintain and if you forgot your notebook all your data was lost.

With a smart scale, say goodbye to cumbersome tracking methods! You can easily sync from the device right to your phone. And even if you want that food journal, most smart scales will sync with apps like MyFitness Pal so you can get even more health data to empower your fitness journey.

Measurement

Weight is only one part of the wellness equation. As a measure, it can sometimes be unreliable when trying to understand the progress you are making. Since weight doesn't tell the whole story, looking to other metrics can help fill in the gaps.

Body fat, protein, visceral fat, BMI/BMR, bone mass, hydration level, and muscle are also important when understanding total wellness. Smart scales are able to track these factors with BIA (bioelectric impedance analysis). Using these measures over time, and that sync to your mobile device, people can gain a deeper insight into their health.

Insights

It can be difficult with a traditional scale to enjoy the benefits of ease of tracking and combining data from multiple sources like Apple Health, Google Fit, and MyFitnessPal. However, with a smart scale, gaining insight through the combination of data sources is possible.

Some smart scales like Yunmai are able to integrate with these sources of information to give users the benefit of all of their wellness data. Instead of spending time combing through the data, users can now enjoy easy to read graphs and visualization to make their fitness journey focus on what's important: improving wellness.

NOTE: Smart scales are not meant for individuals with a pacemaker or who may be pregnant because of this measurement method.
