While some people can subsist on simply lots of strong coffee through the morning, I am not that person. I basically wake up thinking about breakfast, not simply because it’s a meal I thoroughly enjoy, but because I can’t function without it. If I skip it for any reason — whether I am not hungry or I don’t have the time — I have a case of serious brain fog until I do get something nutritious in me. So I always try to make it a point to sit down to an energizing breakfast. Sometimes that means planning ahead and prepping something the night or weekend before. Other times it means waking up a few minutes earlier than I’d probably like to. However, fueling myself with something that will power me through the morning is worth the foresight. Here are 7 ideas to power your own morning:
