Healthy Table

Start your day the better breakfast way

September is Better Breakfast Month. An energy packed breakfast is the perfect way to start your day.  A smart breakfast has been shown to improve behavior and overall school performance, while also helping maintain a healthy weight.  

  • Start your morning with some quality protein.  Protein supplies you with sufficient energy to help keep you focused until lunch. Try adding an egg, some low-fat yogurt or peanut butter on a slice of toast for extra protein in the morning.
  • Don’t forget about whole grains.  Whole grains are digested slower to help with long lasting energy.  Add a piece of whole-grain toast in the morning for extra fiber and nutrients to keep you energized.
  • Spice up breakfast with some fresh produce.  Add your favorite fresh fruit to a cup of yogurt for a tasty parfait.  Grab an apple or a banana for a quick on-the-go breakfast treat. Don’t forget the veggies – chop up your favorites and add them to an omelet for a power packed breakfast.

Healthy Table offers free nutrition information, education, counseling, screening and more. Healthy Table is available for individual sessions, group presentations, health fairs and other health-related activities. We are located in Birck Hall, Room 230. For appointments, call (630) 829-6518 or “like” and message us on Facebook at Healthy Table at Benedictine University. You can also follow us on Twitter at @Healthy_table1.
