Breakfast truly is the most important meal of the day. Your body is coming out of an extended “fast” (hence the title break-fast.) This is the first meal your body recieves its energy from. It is vital to pack your breakfast foods with protein and good carbohydrates, which will leave you with a satiated sensation. Plus, having a satisfying breakfast will prevent you from snacking and consuming more food or calories than you need later in the day.

Here are some unusual breakfast foods to kickstart your morning:

Ebelskiver: This classic Danish pancake can be a real breakfast treat. Pancake mix is used on a special stovetop pan to create small, muffin-top-like pancakes. You can have fun by adding blueberries or bananas with a caramel drizzle. Add a dash of confectionary sugar on top and enjoy!

Potatoes: Most do not associate potatoes with breakfast besides the common hash-brown, but baked potatoes, wedges, slices or squares make for a perfect start to the day. Potatoes  are a great source of carbohydrates and will leave you feeling full for hours. This prolongs your satisfaction until the next meal and provides your body with an abundance of energy.

Brie Pastry: For the classy folk: try baking a Brie pastry. Using puff pastry as the “crust,” then stuff your treat with cranberries and Brie cheese. This warm meal will keep your tummy happy and wanting more of this savory breakfast treat.

Breakfast Burrito: Encase your contents in a spinach, sun-dried tomato or regular wrap. Stuff your burrito with scrambled eggs, salsa and potatoes!
