Kiwis might have a bit of a sore taste, but that will help you wake up better. They are rich in Vitamin C just like oranges are and they are also rich in fiber, copper and potassium.

Japanese people have invented a diet which is becoming very popular in the Western countries as well. Namely, they eat 2 bananas for breakfast with a glass of water. This way they have the good nutrients and a full stomach.
There are so many good things in oats. They are rich in potassium, omega – 3 fatty acids and fibers. They are also rich with beta-glucan which is good for lowering bad cholesterol levels. You can add fruits to your oat meal to make it sweeter. And try to avoid adding sugar or any sweetener. If you still think that they have the blunt taste, then you can add some honey.

Eggs are the easiest option for breakfast. Couples of years back eggs were considered as not so health friendly food.

They are packed with vitamin D and proteins.
