10 tips for a healthy breakfast!

“Breakfast is the most important meal of the day!” is sometimes said. Whether this is true, we like to leave in the middle. What we can all agree on is that a nutritious and balanced breakfast ensures an energetic and productive day. It is important to choose the right breakfast products that are rich in nutrients, fiber and good fats. This will ensure that you can have a blast, day after day! In this article, the Zùsto team gives you 10 tips to optimize your morning routine. 

Tip 1: Choose whole grain products

Whole grain products, such as whole grain bread, oatmeal or granola, are rich in fiber, which helps regulate digestion. In addition, whole grains also help maintain your energy levels for a long time. They are also an excellent source of B vitamins, essential for converting food into energy. 

Tip 2: Add protein

Proteins are crucial for muscle building and muscle recovery. By adding protein to your breakfast, such as low-fat yogurt, eggs, or plant-based alternatives such as tofu or tempeh, you can ensure that you feel satisfied for longer, helping to reduce hunger pangs or “cravings” throughout the day. Protein can additionally help balance sugar levels. 

Tip 3: Beware of products rich in added sugars

Avoid products rich in added sugars. Added sugars are often found in traditional breakfast cereals, a lot of yogurts and juices. Read nutrition labels carefully and choose options with little or no added sugars. Still can’t live without sweetness in the morning? We understand that all too well! Our Zùsto sugar substitute is your best friend. Zùsto contains no sugar, but offers the same taste and is also a source of healthy fiber. Want to know more about our Zùsto sugar substitute?

Tip 4: Don’t be afraid of healthy fats

Not all fats are bad, but make sure you choose healthy fats. After all, healthy fats are essential for brain function and energy. Add unsaturated fats to your breakfast by using products such as avocado, nuts, seeds, smoked salmon or even a splash of olive oil in a smoothie.

Tip 5: Focus on high-fiber foods

Fiber is essential for healthy digestion and can help regulate blood sugar. Add fiber-rich foods such as berries, apples, pears, chia seeds, flaxseeds or beans. High-fiber granolas and cereals are also excellent choices, but often contain a lot of added sugars. Therefore, try our Zùsto Granola. It contains more than double the amount of fiber of the traditional variety, contains no added sugars and is 25% lower in calories than traditional granolas!

Tip 6: Don’t forget to add fruit 

Fruit adds natural sweetness, fiber and important vitamins and antioxidants to your breakfast. Berries, a banana, apples or seasonal fruit are excellent choices. For example, go for a tasty fruit salad, incorporate pieces of fruit into your yogurt or oatmeal or blend a delicious smoothie! The possibilities of fruit are endless. 

Tip 7: Water first, everything else comes later

Start your day with hydration. After a night of sleep, your body needs fluids to keep all body functions functioning optimally. Drinking a glass of water right after getting up helps reboot your internal organs and promotes digestion. Add a slice of lemon to your water. This little extra step can give you many more benefits, such as providing vitamin C and boosting metabolism. In addition, staying hydrated is important for maintaining your energy levels and can help improve concentration throughout the day. 

Tip 8: Plan ahead

Prepare your breakfast the night before to save time and avoid reaching for a quick, unhealthy snack in the morning anyway. A banana bread, overnight oats or pre-prepared smoothie packets are easy and healthy options that you can prepare the night before. Need some inspiration?

Tip 9: Be creative

Experiment with different ingredients to bring variety to your breakfast. Try new combinations of whole grains, protein sources and fruits to discover new flavors and textures. This will ensure that your breakfast becomes something to look forward to and you will never get bored with the same recipes over and over again. 

Tip 10: Listen to your body

As with any meal, this golden rule also applies to breakfast: “Eat when you’re hungry and stop when you’re full.”  Listen to your body’s signals and adjust your portion sizes and food choices according to your needs and activity level.


A healthy and nutritious breakfast sets the tone for the rest of the day. By making smart choices and experimenting with different foods, you can develop a breakfast routine that is not only delicious, but also contributes to a healthy lifestyle.
