10 Breakfasts of Champions
Fitness gurus share their all-time favorite morning meals
You don't need us to remind you that eating a healthy breakfast is a good idea. But since the same bowl of oatmeal every day can get boring, you might need a few new ideas for what to eat in the morning.
"Whether you are headed to the gym or on your way out the door to work, make sure your breakfast is going to keep you going for the next few hours," says Ed Olko, personal trainer at Equinox in Palos Verdes, CA. "Your breakfast is the beginning of your day, so make it count."
Olko's top picks: A fruit smoothie and a Bagel Thin with a light smear of peanut butter; an English muffin with egg white, a slice of turkey bacon, and half a piece of cheese; an egg white omelet with mushrooms, spinach, and cheese on a bagel; or plain Greek yogurt with whole grain cereal and/or fresh fruit mixed in.
