3 savvy ways to simplify breakfast


Family Features

While it is widely known that starting your day with a balanced, nutritious breakfast can have a positive impact on overall health, it may be difficult for some people to make it a priority. Whether you generally run low on time in the mornings or have little ones to keep on track before heading out the door, it simply isn’t always an option to piece together a grandiose morning meal.

Prep the Night Before

Not everyone is fortunate enough to have ample time in the morning to prepare what some studies consider to be the most important meal of the day. If you’re typically short on time before heading out the door, prepare breakfast the night before so you can ensure you’re starting each day with proper fuel and nutrition. Even if it’s as simple as setting out a bowl, spoon and your favorite cereal before you go to bed, you can set yourself up to shave a few minutes off your morning routine.

Take It To-Go

If your kids are a handful or that snooze button is just too easy to reach each morning, sitting down at the table – even for a quick breakfast – might be out of the question.

Keep It Simple

Breakfast doesn’t have to be elaborate to get your day going in the right direction. Simple options like avocado toast take little time to create yet can go a long way toward adding nutrients in the morning. For a different spin on traditional avocado toast, combine it with a unique taste like Sabra Classic Hummus.

Hummus Toast

2 tablespoons Sabra Hummus (any flavor)

1 slice whole-wheat or hearty bread, toasted

1/2cup avocado, sliced

1 sliced radish

1/4 cup tender arugula

1 tablespoon chopped pistachios

salt, to taste

pepper, to taste

Spread hummus on toast.

Top with avocado, radish, arugula and pistachios.

Sprinkle with salt and pepper, to taste.
