We are constantly reminded that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Not only does it cure the 8-hour hunger our bodies have endured while sleeping, but it jump starts our metabolisms and gets us filled with vitamins and nutrients to start the day right. The great thing about breakfast is that there are so many options to choose from. Unfortunately, many aren’t picking the right one. With busy lifestyles and the tempting smell of sugary baked goods at our local coffee shops, it’s easy to eat something that will get us started on the wrong foot.

One easy way to get healthy, proper nutrients in the morning is to eat a complete hot meal. That’s why the Jimmy Dean Company started celebrating National Hot Breakfast Month during the month of February! Throughout February, you can celebrate by serving up several breakfast favorites like pancakes, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage and so much more!

There are also several natural and organic options for breakfast. With eggs, choose organic varieties. Organic chickens fed a vegetarian, organic diet and are free from hormones and antibiotics. You can scramble up some eggs and season with your favorite herbs or add some organic vegetables and make an omelet. If you’re crunched for time, bake a quiche during the weekend and keep it refrigerated throughout the week. You can quickly cut a slice, eat it up and be on your way out the door.

You can also buy organic varieties of your favorite breakfast meats. Be sure to check the sodium content on these. Many cured meats are packed with salt, which can act as a preservative.

To round out the meal, look for organic pancake mixes or simply make your own. This way, you’ll have more control over what goes inside. You can even dress them up and add fresh, organic fruits, nuts, or chocolate chips. The possibilities are endless!

If you’re looking for that well-rounded breakfast, add a side of fruit to your meal. Half of a fresh grapefruit or a bowl of berries in a great way to get some vitamin C and fiber into your diet right away!

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
