While it’s impossible to say what the most important meal of the day really is, there is one good reason why breakfast is so essential: when you start the day with a healthy, balanced breakfast, you nourish your body with the energy you need to get through the day.

To get the full benefits of the first meal of the day, ditch the muffins and follow this guide to building a healthy breakfast.

Pay attention to the ingredients

Just like any other meal, using high-quality, whole-food ingredients is always best. What is also integral to a healthy breakfast is keeping your blood sugar stable with low-glycemic index (GI) ingredients. Low-GI foods digest over a longer period of time and keep your energy levels more stable throughout the day.

Think about your food groups

Include proteinsfats, and carbohydrates—the three macronutrients (main nutrients in foods) that should feature in any meal. To do this, think of your plate as a pie-chart: fill half your plate with vegetables and fruits, a quarter of your plate with whole grains, and another quarter with healthy proteins (plant or animal). Even though the idea sounds weird, breakfast salads are a great way to get more nutrients into your breakfast.

Don’t forget to drink water

Your body needs water to be healthy, but it’s easy to miss this vital liquid when you’re drinking your morning coffee or tea. Also, drinking a glass in the morning can help kickstart your metabolism for the day. Struggling to remember to drink water? Check out these five easy tips to up your daily intake.
