1. Eggs.

One week, it seems like eggs are worse than cigarettes, and the other, they’re one of the best things you can eat. So which is it? Well, one thing’s for sure, eggs are an excellent source of protein, vitamin B12, vitamin D, and selenium. You’ll find plenty of essential amino acids and antioxidants in your morning omelet — and, despite popular belief, your cholesterol probably won’t suffer as a result. Eggs are also great for keeping you full for longer, and studies have linked egg consumption to higher rates of weight loss.

2. Apples.

Need a healthy breakfast on the go? Grab an apple. Apples are one of the most filling fruits out there, and studies have shown that eating one before a meal will help curb your appetite for less healthy foods. But that’s not all; apples are packed with fiber, vitamin C, potassium, and tons of antioxidants. What’s not to love?!

My favorite breakfast, when I eat at home is a bowl of Plain Grain Instant Oatmeal with 5 whole grains. It only has 1 gram of sugar and contains: organic whole grain rolled oats, organic barley, organic wheat, organic flaxseed, organic quinoa, organic rye and evaporated sea salt (3% of daily value of Sodium). It has 12% dietary fiber and 6 grams of Protein. It also has 15% phosphorus and 15% magnesium, as well. There 160 calories in each packet. I add fresh apples, bananas, blueberries, nectarines, slivered almonds and almond sugar-free vanilla flavored milk. Top it off with Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Pumpkin Pie Spice. I also have a cup of herbal tea and a glass of O.J. (as I'm a native [and life-long] Floridian and can't kick the O.J. habit). Don't even try to convince me to break that O.J. addiction. Many people have, but I still drink it!

Grains, including oatmeal, should be soaked prior to cooking to rid them of phytic acid. Phytic acid binds valuable minerals and thus does not allow the body to absorb them. This should be doen with all grains and legumes.
