Spring is finally here, although it is currently snowing in Minnesota. I’m ignoring it and moving on with Spring. :)

I’ve been ready for warm weather meals like yogurt & granola, cereal and smoothies for the last few months (or maybe I’ve just been longing for warm sun) but they often leave me hungry by 10am. Luckily there are a couple of ways to make these breakfasts last the entire morning:

  • Yogurt: Use Greek yogurt or Skyrr as it has a lot more protein than regular yogurt (and it is worth the extra $)
  • Cereal or Granola: Should be whole grain, high fiber and extra points for protein and good fats (Uncle Sam┬áCereal or Kashi Go Lean are great ones)
  • Good Fats: Will add staying power to your meal – chopped nuts or nut butter are great, easy additions
  • Fresh Fruit: For flavor, sweetness, something fresh and some natural beauty ;)

Your typical yogurt and granola is probably full of added sugars and lacking in protein, fiber and good fats. Make a few of the changes I’ve suggested and you’re starting your day in a great way.

What do you add to breakfast so that it stays with you until lunch?
