‘Breakfast is the most important meal of the day’ is a phrase that we all hear annoyingly often. And yet, it is a healthy tip worth bearing in mind. You would find yourself making better choices throughout the day, if you start your day off on a positive note, by making a health conscious choice to eat balanced fit-foodies for breakfast. That is why your morning meals have to be light and healthy, and at the same time highly nutritious and energizing, full of natural fibers and mainly plant-based proteins. A green smoothies is always a good breakfast idea (check out some of 2 Health App’s recipes for the perfect green smoothie here).
2Health App offers a variety of breakfast options for all types of tastes: veggies and eggs-based, fruit and nuts-based or juices and smoothies. Try to mix and match so you could have a different breakfast everyday, hence different sources of nutrients.
Today we are sharing 5 of our amazing quick breakfasts that will get you lean and green in no time. No matter which one you choose you can be sure that you have made the right choice. And always remember: proper nutrition is about beauty, happiness, glow and energy, not about loosing weight.
