I love this time of the year. It’s when I get to refocus my efforts especially those related to fitness and health. This year one of my goals is to eat breakfast more often. If you follow me on Instagram, I often mention how hard it is for me to eat breakfast in the mornings.
I’m usually tired and unprepared so I skip it, even though I know breakfast one of the most important meals of the day. I work out early in the mornings, so skipping breakfast isn’t the wisest thing to do.
To make sure I eat breakfast every morning, I’ve stocked my cabinet with some whole grain Big G cereals while they are on sale this week. I’ve shared the upcoming Publix sale details at the end of this post if you need to stock up.
Aside from making sure, I have my favorite Big G cereals on hand, I’ve also implemented a few other breakfast routines that have made a difference.
1. Make a meal plan
Breakfast and dinner are the two most important meals of my day. Breakfast is the meal that helps get me going in the morning and dinner is the one that keeps me from waking in the night hungry.
Having a meal plan helps me figure out what to buy when grocery shopping. On weeks when I’ll have a busy morning, I make sure I stock up on easy breakfasts like Multi-Grain and Honey Nut Cheerios. A bowl of whole grain cereal, a muffin, and fresh fruit is a good way for me to get going in the morning.
I’ve have set up breakfast stations in my fridge, my cabinet, on my counter and at a buffet in the dining room before. The goal is organizing my most used breakfast items in one place.
Having most of what I need to eat breakfast in one place takes the guess work out of eating. I love keeping my families cereals in clear jars along with bowls and spoons at our dining room buffet. I also keep fresh fruit, muffins, and coffee supplies at our buffet.
With this set up the only thing I need to grab and bring to the table in the mornings is milk and juice.
3. Don’t eat alone
I usually eat breakfast with my husband while watching sports highlights and news. Sometimes, I meet friends for breakfast at a local restaurant or take a breakfast beverage with me to the gym.
This is one of my least favorite ways of making sure I eat breakfast. My husband sets his alarm for us to wake up, eat and workout. If he didn’t I’d sleep in every day. We set our alarm to go off an hour before we start exercising. That give us enough time to eat and get out the door.
Keep in mind, the less time you give yourself before you need to start the day, the simpler your breakfast choice will have to be. Keep your cabinet stocked with your favorite Big G cereals. I like keeping Multi Grain Cheerios and Honey Nut Cheerios in the house for easy breakfasts.
Now that you know what some of my tips are for establishing a good breakfast routine, I have a question.
