Smart Morning Chow For A Smarter You

Friday, May 21, 2010

Eating breakfast is advocated by most health experts. But eating breakfast does not mean automatic brain boosting points. The quality of the food you eat is also a factor. If you are thinking about chowing on greasy bacon and buttered toasts, consider these options first before you upset your heart and melt your brain:

A yogurt parfait. Alternate layers of yogurt with berries, bananas, and whole grain cereal in a glass. Top the parfait with almonds. This breakfast is loaded with protein, antioxidants, vitamins, and fiber.

A fruit smoothie and whole wheat toast. If you can't have breakfast without bread, we suggest toasting a whole wheat or multigrain slice and serve it with a tablespoon of peanut butter. In a blender, puree yogurt, bananas, and berries with some ice cubes for a smoothie to go with your peanut butter toast.

A fun cereal bowl. Cereal can be a bit boring. Shake up your usual bowl with the addition of sun flower seeds, berries, peaches, bananas, and nuts into the mix. Add a bit of vanilla to your milk before pouring it in for a breakfast that's flavorful, fun, and rich in brain-boosting nutrients.
