Body Buzz: Morning Meals In Five Minutes Or Less

January 26th, 2007 // 7 Comments

Yes its true breakfast is the most important meal of the day! While you think you don’t have time to squeeze in a quick bite in the wee hours of the morning you should seriously rethink that plan. When you skip breakfast you really are only hurting your body, skipping breakfast throws your body out of whack for the rest of the day. A typical breakfast is just a couple of hundred calories, mostly in the form of simple carbohydrates that spike blood-sugar levels and leave the body starving for energy a couple of hours later. So rethink your breakfast and basically don’t skip it – here are a few quick meals you can prepare in five minutes or less to provide your body with the essential energy and nutrients it needs!

Minute Omelet with ToastPrep time: 2 minutes

1 egg
3/4 cup frozen spinach, thawed
1 slice Canadian bacon, diced
2 slices whole-wheat bread
1 Tbsp almond butter

Mix the egg and spinach together, add the Canadian bacon and place onto a plate coated with nonstick spray. Microwave for 1 minute or until the egg is fully cooked. Toast the bread and enjoy with the almond butter. Enjoy this meal with a glass of Welch’s grape juice loaded with Antioxidants!

    While 500 odd calories sounds like a lot, there’s “good” and “bad” calories. Also, note the grams of protein and carbs. Fuel for the body.

    I think even a person who has a desk job could burn 500 calories by lunchtime, by getting up to go to the ladies room, copy machine, mail room, the usual stuff.

    Thanks again, Socialite!
