SALT LAKE CITY — You hear it all the time, breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

Eating at the beginning of the day can help you fuel your body for work or school or activity or whatever you do during the day. But it’s no more important than the other meals. All meals are important, and spreading your food throughout the day is beneficial to manage energy and blood sugar levels.

If you’re someone who feels better when you’ve got a nourishing breakfast in your belly but doesn't have the time or desire to make anything in the morning, know you’re not alone. I am a dietitian who loves eating and is neither a friendly nor functional person without breakfast, but I will not spend any time preparing breakfast in the morning.

To fuel my body and give myself the best chance to be kind to others, I have found the value of ready-to-eat breakfasts such as overnight oats and quick heat eggs to eat at work.

With that said, here are some delicious and nourishing breakfasts to fuel your morning.
