Q: I have heard that eating breakfast is important. I’m short on time in the morning, so I often skip breakfast. Is breakfast really that important? And if so, what are some quick and healthy options?
A: Eating a balanced morning meal can help increase your energy, prevent hunger, and help you reach your health goals. If you don’t have much time in the mornings, you can take a little time at night to prepare easy breakfasts for the week. Trail mix, overnight oats, and Greek yogurt with fruit are just a few options that you can prepare in no time. Here’s a resource for helping you find more balanced and easy breakfast ideas.
