I think you already know the answer to that! It better to choose a healthy, fibrous and natural produce breakfast, than a greasy one. This, however, does not mean that you have to limit yourself to healthy breakfast, you can cheat once every week. And for the rest of the days, here is what’s going to help you.

Pick up your grocery list and add these new breakfast meal ingredients to your list.

1. Black Beans



Packed with soluble fiber, a powerful belly fat fighter – black beans will not only fill you up for hours but also help slim you down. Research says that for every 10-gram increase in soluble fiber consumed daily, a person’s belly fat reduced by 3.7 percent over five years. To eat this for breakfast, we suggest you make a soup. For it, you need to soak dried black beans in water overnight. You can pressure cook it with some seasoning and a dash of vinegar, as it will add an extra punch.

2. Oatmeal



A lot of us do not enjoy a healthy bowl of oatmeal, but, the truth is, oats are rich in fiber called beta -glucan, which helps to reduce cholesterol. Oats can be added in many meals and you do not necessarily have to eat it with just milk. You can make smoothies by tossing your favorite fruits or you can make some amazing baked oatmeal by adding chopped walnuts, dates, raisins, shredded coconut, and also some chocolate if you like.

3. Greek Yogurt

Greek yogurt is one of the best breakfast foods because it has double the amount of protein compared to other yogurts. It can keep blood sugar levels stable and ward off hunger. It’s also extremely versatile. To create a healthy, filling parfet, top plain Greek yogurt with berries and chia seeds. It also makes for a satiety-boosting smoothie addition.

4. Eggs

Eggs are a rich source of protein and Vitamin D. There are endless ways to make eggs. They can be poached, fried, baked or boiled. They are never a fail. So, go on and get some eggs-perience.

5. Banana

Not only is banana famous for its potassium content, it also provides filling fiber and water. Smearing some banana slices with a little peanut butter is a great fat-fighting combination worth trying.

6. All Things Green



This kind of a green smoothie is most popular among celebrities. It is blend of green leafy veggies like kale, spinach or chard, and a liquid base like water, coconut water, almond milk or coconut milk. To add flavor to the drink, add fruits like pineapple, papaya, green apple, avocado, peach or banana.

7. Green Tea



This humble drink has been cherished for ages as a miraculous health potion. Tea leaves contain catechins, a group of antioxidants, and the most powerful of all catechins, a compound called Epigallocatechin Gallate, or EGCG, is found almost exclusively in green tea. Now, you have every reason to sip from your daily cup of green goodness.

8. All Natural Peanut Butter



The reason why we mentioned the ‘all natural’ bit here is because processed peanut butter contains sugar and waist-widening oils. The real peanut butter is made from two simple ingredients – salt and peanuts. This legume is filled with heart-healthy monounsaturated fats and genistein, a compound that down-regulates fat genes.

9. Broccoli



Starting the day with cooked or raw veggies is a great way to ensure you get a healthy dose of hard-to-consume nutrients. Rich in vitamins A, C and K, broccoli just might be able to help you lose weight. By eating it in the morning, you can start off your day with a filling meal that fits within your calorie limits.

10. Watermelon

This fruit has some impressive health benefits. Eating watermelon lowers fat accumulation. It contains 6 per cent sugar and 92 per cent water. Eating this fruit on an empty stomach before breakfast, it will detoxify your body of the harmful toxins. Watermelon also has an antioxidant, lycopene and is full of vitamin A.
