Breakfasts that Boost Your Metabolism


breakfast
Most of us know that the secret to good health and dieting is eating a healthy and nourishing breakfast. In addition to helping you stay full and providing you with the energy you need, certain types of food can also boost your metabolism, helping you to burn fat throughout the day. Here is a selection of the top breakfasts that can boost your metabolism.

Scrambled Eggs with Salmon

These two delicious high protein foods combine to provide a filling breakfast that will also boost your metabolism. If you find the taste of scrambled eggs and salmon a bit bland, you can add a kick to it with some fresh or dried chillies, freshly ground black pepper and even a dash of Tabasco sauce.

Fresh Fruit

The high levels of fibre in fresh fruit make this a great calorie burner that will boost your metabolism. Throw different types of fresh fruit into a blender with a generous scoop of Greek yoghurt to make a delicious fruit smoothie that will charge you with energy and keep you feeling full until lunchtime.

Breakfast Burrito

This is another great way to enjoy scrambled eggs in the morning. You can add salmon, cheese, chopped onions, tomatoes, beans and a wide range of other ingredients to this quick and easy to prepare dish to make it really filling and tasty.

Quinoa Breakfast Cereal

This healthy grain is great for burning fat and boosting your metabolism. There are numerous different ways to prepare and enjoy quinoa, but one of the best breakfast boosters has got to be hot porridge made from quinoa. Add coconut milk or other types of nut milk to give the porridge a rich and creamy taste and sweeten it with plenty of fresh fruit as well as raw honey.

Wholegrain French Toast Stuffed with Fresh Blueberries

This delicious breakfast treat is high in both carbs and fibre and feels very decadent while also being healthy. Soak your wholegrain bread in a mixture of milk and a little fat before topping the bottom layer with a generous sprinkling of fresh blueberries, topping it with another slice of bread and then frying your sandwich in a mixture of egg whites and canola oil with a little added vanilla extract for taste. Reduce calories by switching out the canola oil for a low calorie oil spray.

Lean Protein

You don’t have to ditch the meat, simply go lean and enjoy your lean cut of meat with wholegrain bread and fresh fruit.
