They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day—but it’s also the easiest to miss amidst the hustle and bustle of busy mornings! In honor of Better Breakfast Month, we’re sharing five easy ways to enjoy a breakfast that fills you up and soothes the soul. Just read on.
A great breakfast (and overall start to your day) begins long before you actually sit down to eat. Staying hydrated with water in addition to your morning coffee is a great way to wake yourself up and replenish your body, preparing it for the day ahead. If you have trouble sticking to a hydrating routine, keep a bottle of H2O by your bedside and enjoy a drink right when you wake up. Voila, a healthy choice to kick off your day before you even jump out of bed!
Plan ahead for the perfect meal
Breakfast time can be busy! In the midst of preparing for work or getting ready for school, you might forget to sit down and fuel up altogether. Fortunately, by preparing elements of your breakfast the night before, you can count on there being plenty of time to eat while still getting everything done! A few of our favorite make-ahead recipes include…

Make a standing breakfast appointment with friends
Whether it’s a Monday morning breakfast date, or a standing weekend brunch appointment, setting aside time for a morning meal with friends is sure to help you spend more quality time together.

Breakfast isn’t just about fueling your body for the day ahead. It should also be a time of day where you help your mind wake up and prepare for the day in a comfortable setting! With this in mind, look for ways to stress less at the breakfast table. Instead of scrolling through the news on your phone, or getting a head-start on answering emails, for example, take some time to truly observe and enjoy the meal in front of you. You can even bring along a good book or, if you’re dining with the family, talk about things you are excited for in the day ahead! By shifting your mindset, you can turn breakfast from a strictly “utilitarian” meal into something you truly enjoy and savor.
As a bonus tip, try enjoying foods at breakfast that help stop stress in its tracks! According to research from UCLA, for example, the probiotics in yogurt aren’t just good for your gut—they may be able to keep you calm, too! Oatmeal’s soothing, comfort food flavor is another great option—not just because it tastes and feels great, but because it can boost serotonin in your brain and help you feel more at ease. So whether you’re enjoying a bowl of Oatmeal or the brown sugar-scented strawberry yogurt alongside your Orchard Fresh Apple Fritters, you can enjoy spoon after stress-beating spoon with ease.
