June 19, 2018

As you grow older, activities that you were once able to enjoy without breaking a sweat tend to tire you easily. If you are looking for that perfect meal that nourishes your body, augments your stamina and improves your mood without adding any empty calories to your diet, then you must try incorporating the breakfast suggestions given below.

Breakfast is perhaps the most vital meal of your day. It sets the tone for the day and a nutritious plateful can help you stay energized longer. A good breakfast also has the ability to uplift your mood and make you look forward to the rest of the day.

Here are some easy options for a healthy breakfast:

  1. Oatmeal and Berries – Traditional oatmeal is a fantastic source of fiber, protein, iron, zinc, and is rich in antioxidants. When you add a dash of color in the form of raspberries, blueberries, strawberries and blackberries to your oatmeal, it makes for an unparalleled bowl of energy that can keep you up and about. The berries add to the nutritional value by bringing in folic acid, potassium and natural sugar that is exactly the pick-me-up you need when you are feeling down.

  2. Walnuts – Walnuts are the king of nuts especially for older adults since they are easier to chew than almonds or pistachios. They possess high quantities of good protein, antioxidants, and a variety of vitamins that can ensure that you are not dragging through the day.

  3. Cottage Cheese – Low fat cottage cheese tastes phenomenal with cut fruits, nuts and raisins. Add a dollop of honey and make it a lovely breakfast dessert which is chock full of protein, antioxidants, calcium and vitamin B.

  4. Greek Yogurt Smoothie – Blend some berries or a banana with thick Greek yogurt for a yummy breakfast smoothie. A smoothie is a nourishing and filling drink that has protein and calcium for your bones, probiotics for your gut, vitamin B complex for your brain health and fiber. It is a wholesome drink that can give you sustained energy through the day.

  5. Eggs – Eggs are great for older adults as they are quick and easy to make and also easy to chew. Eggs are nutritious and filling too as they contain protein and vitamin D, both of which are helpful in replenishing the body’s energy.

If you have been feeling really tired throughout the day lately, try one of these options for breakfast every day. The natural ingredients in these simple breakfast items will fill you up and keep you buzzing with energy all day long.
