Upgrade Your Breakfast One Ingredient At A Time

You’ve got a breakfast routine down that works. But, you know it could use a little better nutrition. You also know that throwing it out and trying some super food diet and crazy extreme plan is just not going to cut it. EverydayHealth as come up with a really good list of ways to up the nutrition and still keep your breakfast satisfying and comfortable.

Small changes are much easier to stick with, so you don’t have to ditch your favorites to give your breakfast a health kick! Instead of completely overhauling your morning menu (and going on a Fruit Loops binge next week), start by setting a goal to make just one small upgrade to your breakfast of choice.

Bacon, Egg, and Cheese + Spinach

If a breakfast sandwich gets you out of bed in the morning, going homemade can take it from a greasy indulgence to a nutritious meal. Opt for whole-wheat bread, lean turkey or Canadian bacon, and just a sprinkling of your favorite cheese. Then, reach for leafy greens for an extra dose of nutrition. Fresh spinach won’t alter the taste of your sandwich, but will add a hefty dose of vitamins A and K, as well as manganese and folate.

Of course you can’t stop at the drive-through for this one. However you can make 5 in the same time as one since you are cooking anyway and put 4 in the freezer without the spinach. Take it out the night before. it will be thawed by morning. Pop it in the toaster oven for a few minutes, add the spinach and breakfast is awesome.
