Easy, nutritionist-approved breakfast ideas for 3 types of people

Good nutrition focuses on intuitive eating and not the next best fad diet. Sponsored by Premera.

Nutrition is not a one size fits all — particular diets may only work for particular bodies. Shelly Najjar is a registered dietitian and nutritionist of Confident Nutrition who focuses on intuitive eating, which promotes a positive attitude towards food and body image. She demonstrates three breakfast ideas that can be catered to what we need individually:

The "I Have No Time To Eat"

  • Breakfast oatmeal with toppings like fruits and/or granola
  • Oatmeal

The "Not Hungry In The Morning"

  • Fruit smoothie
  • Breakfast drink
  • Bread or toast

The "I Don't Like Breakfast Foods"

  • Eat leftovers

When viewing nutrition as the goal of nourishing our body, it increases our capacity to do other things:

  • Work and life tasks
  • Connecting with others
  • More stable blood sugars
  • More feelings of self-control around food
  • Easier decision making
  • More stable emotions
  • Other acts of self-care: easier to monitor medical conditions and take health actions when we’re nourishing ourselves
