Top 5 Breakfast Drinks

When it comes to breakfast, most people tend to think about food, which of course is to be expected. Today I wanted to take a closer look at what people tend to drink while they’re eating their breakfast.

Most people choose what they’re going to drink with their breakfast meal once they’ve actually decided what they’re going to eat for breakfast. For example, drinking juice often goes hand-in-hand with a larger breakfast meal, like pancakes, or scrambled eggs and toast. A large healthy muffin is quite delicious with a cup of fresh ground, fresh brewed coffee. Milk and chocolate milk are two all-time favorites for kids (yes, this includes grownup kids), and goes perfectly with a bowl of cereal. Tea is often a favorite of those who like to eat something that’s both healthy and light for breakfast.

And last but not least, water. We all need to drink water, or at least water-based beverages throughout the day to keep our bodies hydrated. I used to drink juice full strength until I realized, 1. how many calories there are in juice, and 2. that sometimes juice upsets my stomach. Now I add water to my juices, which reduces the calories and is easier on my stomach. Sometimes it’s a 1 to 3 ratio (water to juice), and sometimes it’s half and half.

The following are some of the more popular breakfast beverages people like to drink with their breakfast:

1. Juice – There are lots of yummy juices to drink! Some of my favorites are orange juice, grapefruit juice (no sugar please!) and cranberry juice.

2. Coffee – There are so many different flavors of coffee, that one should never get bored of drinking coffee. In fact, most people tend to find a favorite, and stick with it.

3. Milk/Chocolate Milk – If you can, try to drink nonfat milk, which is healthier than whole milk. Also, goat milk is becoming more popular and comes with lots of healthy benefits, so it may be worth a try!

4. Tea – Green teas, black teas, white teas, flavored teas, and more. Drinking tea is more and more becoming the preferred drink when it comes to being healthy!

5. Water – Essential!
