10 Breakfasts to Boost Your Metabolism Before 8 a.m.
Registered dietitians give the skinny on what to eat in the morning to keep your motor running
Are you an 11 a.m. snack grazer? We're all guilty of reaching for some almonds (or, ahem, jelly beans) when it's not quite time for lunch yet. To help with this, Natalie, Rizzo, a registered dietician, says to eat something complex in nutrition that will keep you full until it's 'officially' time to pull out your salad. "One of my favorite things to eat in the morning is oatmeal made with milk and topped with fruit and nuts. Although this may sound like a typical breakfast, it's an extremely well-balanced meal of whole grains, protein and healthy fats. The oats provide complex carbs that contain fiber and stay with you for a long time, while the milk and nuts provide protein and healthy fats," says Rizzo. "These macronutrients are a powerhouse combination that will keep you feeling full for a long time and stop you from overeating later in the day."
