While many people may desire a healthier lifestyle, few are able to make drastic lifestyle changes overnight.
While a medical emergency may necessitate sudden changes, most find it easier to focus on a few small changes at a time. Once those changes become a habit, then they can focus on forming additional healthy habits. Since everyone wants to become healthy without much effort, National Health 101 Examiner will be sharing a few quick and easy health tips each week that provide the biggest bang for the buck in terms of health. The tips shared during the month of August will relate to eating breakfast.
Most people would agree that it is best to start the day with a nutritious breakfast. For many Americans, a healthy breakfast is comprised of high-fiber whole grains, proteins that are low in saturated fat, and fresh produce (preferably organic, local, or pesticide free). To optimize the nutritional value of convenience breakfasts, sprinkle one to two tablespoons of chia seeds into cereal, oatmeal, yogurt, or smoothies. Chia seeds have a very mild nutty taste that is not noticeable when mixed with other foods, yet they are one of the world's top super foods providing a nutritional boost that the body cannot help but notice.
