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
Even if you've mulled over every slide of your presentation and practiced your speech so much you're hearing it in your sleep, it's normal to have some anxiety when the big day arrives. You don't want your tummy talking to you during the Q&A, so make something fast that'll keep you full and get your metabolism moving. Registered dietician Amy D. Gorin says this wild blueberry peanut butter smoothie is her go-to breakfast for big days. "I can make it in a flash, and it contains some pretty awesome ingredients that will help give your metabolism a boost in the morning," says Gorin. "[It] combines Greek yogurt, milk and peanut butter to provide 22 grams of protein -- helpful for your metabolism because your body expends more energy to metabolize and store protein," she says. "It also contains a big dose of health-helping antioxidants from the wild blueberries, which actually contain more antioxidants than 20 other fruits and vegetables, including cranberries," she adds.
