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
While sitting down for breakfast is a good way to pass the time while you wait for boarding to begin, airport foods aren't always the most nutritionally sound, especially at small regional airports. Instead of relying on whatever is available in your terminal, pack a breakfast that'll pass through security -- and get the seal of approval from an expert. Private practice dietitian and nutritionist Andy De Santis says an on-the-go breakfast should include healthy fats that are portable. "Eating a good breakfast helps with mental focus and acuity at work and school throughout the day and makes it less likely that you'll pursue unhealthy snack foods before your next meal," he says. "I like to do two bananas with two handfuls of almonds, or two avocadoes. These keep me satisfied for hours!" Maybe you'll even skip the cookies when the flight attendant comes by.
